Today is Valentine's Day – ho hum.
I've never been one to understand or appreciate the "romance" factor for Valentine's Day – it's actually the LEAST romantic day of the year.
* Blokes buy overly expensive flowers – because their women expect them to do so.
Anything purchased out of obligation (or fear ?) – is to a fulfil a necessity – no desire remaining – it's a NOT romantic gesture.
* Women expect flowers from their man
AND – some are disappointed when they don't get (a) big enough bunch (b) wrong flowers (c) less than other girls at work
Give me flowers – OR – you don't love me.
How romantic is that ? NOT.
Here's an idea – DON'T do anything for Valentine's Day.
Instead – more romantic – blokes, buy your flowers as a surprise – not anniversary, or birthday – just "because".
It will be appreciated 10x what would be expected on Valentine's Day – I guarantee it !
Avoid the over commercialised rubbish – and overly expensive – remove expectations – and re-instate romance. That's what I reckon !
Some blokes might have a hard time convincing their woman about ditching V-day – good luck, I say !
For Donna and I – instead of V-day for Feb 14th – we have B-day.
Our special lad Cameron is now TWO years old today – Happy Birthday, fella !
