It’s that lovely time of the year for hearts & roses galore! In all of my almost 32 years on earth, I have never been in love with Valentine’s Day. I guess it’s because I’ve never had a real Valentine. Sad isn’t it? It’s actually surprising how many women I’ve met who are in the same love-less boat. I’m one of those people who thinks love should be celebrated everyday, not just one day out the year just because everybody else is doing it. Yes, I’m the brat that doesn’t want to comply with the standard. If you love someone, you should buy them candy & roses anytime you want. Maybe that’s just the mushy sap in me. I like doing cute little romantic things for the one I’m with, when I’m with someone.
This year, there will be no breakfast in bed, no flowers sent to my job, no chocolates on my desk, no text messages throughout the day, no romantic dinner, no good night sex. I’m actually okay with this. I’m not going to even go there with talk of being happy I’m alone because that is so not the case. But I am content with not having anyone to call “baby” right now. I’ve met a few guys over the past few years that sparked my interest but failed to keep my attention. Or maybe I failed to keep there’s. Either way, it didn’t work in our favor for whatever reason. I’ve also spent the last few months taking mental notes on why these “relationships” didn’t flourish. To know what I want in a future mate, I kinda need to pay attention to the things I can’t tolerate, like text message proposals, as we’ll as what position I played in the matter, like saying I love you so you’ll stop asking me if I love you yet. rofl
At any rate, I’m happy knowing that all of these lessons are not in vain. Something bigger, someone better is in the works. It’s the “be patient” part I have a hard time listening too.
Happy Valentines Day Loves!
