For as long as romance has been apart of the universe, never have I ever been swept off of my feet by some big romantic gesture. I’m 24 guys, like really? C’mon. Would I have cared for it? And why would I not?! The whole notion of what culture has turned it into seems adorable and it just… does something to the heart, you know? Why would I not want to be a part of this? And nooo, I myself have not once pulled off any romantic episodes for the occasion as far as I can remember but that isn’t the matter at hand.
The closest that I have gotten to a romantic date around this time of the year was when my cousin offered to watch my 3-month-old son so that his father and I could go watch Fifty Shades Darker. Actually, we should be going to watch Fifty Shades Freed this year because I am very much curious as to what this man ( the man who was Anna’s boss before her man became her boss) has planned.
My friend, on the other hand, has an entire weekend of dinner and hotel reservations planned for her husband. She’s made handwritten letters for every month that they have been married or for the months to come. I’m not quite sure but there are letters and a jar with red notes! I must say, I have no excuse for not ever going all out on this day except for laziness or I just didn’t care for them that much, or maybe the day. Whatever, but how cute is that?! Fact: I totally forgot about February 14th except for that my son has his 15 months check up and Christian and Anna return to the big screen. I’m not worried at all because my bf doesn’t really care for this specific celebration. Even though I know that he would appreciate something, I know that he wouldn’t feel unappreciated if he doesn’t receive chocolates and roses.
For all you romantics out there spreading real love and not just spending money hoping to get laid, I appreciate the yous of the world. Even if it isn’t romantic, love or just expression of appreciation can save so many lives and do so much good especially, if not only, when it comes from a true place.
As for the rest of yous… It’s 2018 if you’re just trying to roll in the sack, at least be upfront about it. Don’t lead people on, if you have to, then maybe they aren’t old enough to be doing the do. You know what I’m saying? It really isn’t even worth the arguments and potential homicide cases. Get with it.
And so, for all those who are going to celebrate, enjoy! For the rest of us, let’s continue to show the people whom we hold dear to us how much love that God, not Saint Valentine, put in us just for them.
Toodles for now! 🙂
