I think it is fair to say that I have never been a big fan of Valentine’s Day. I kind of like the idea, if it works out well, but if it doesn’t then it’s horrible. It’s the day all of the couples gloat about how in love they are and show off their partner just to make the singletons feel rubbish. Or that’s how it always felt. I had only ever had a few good Valentine’s Days and they involved friends rather than a Valentine. I had always wanted the perfect one, like what you see on TV and in films. I never actually thought it would happen though. I thought if I ever did find the man of my dreams, I wouldn’t end up with one who was into all that kind of stuff. In some ways I agree with those who believe it’s just a money making thing and you should show people that you love them every day, not just one specific day. I do agree with that but it’s all so pink… and pretty, and hearts and girly, and I just can’t resist anything pink and girly. So straight away I get drawn in without even meaning to.
Part of me thinks I really shouldn’t be admitting to this, but what the heck. Last year I actually bought myself some Valentine’s chocolates from my favourite chocolate shop. I just got sick of waiting. Every year they were sat there looking pretty and heart shaped and I wanted them so much. So last year I just thought this is silly, what am I waiting for? It’s chocolate! If I want the chocolate, buy the chocolate… and I did. And it were so good. ❤ So I was sat there eating the chocolate thinking, I’m alright with this. I don’t need a guy to buy me pretty chocolate. I’m not going to be so silly about it from now on, I’ll just buy my own. If it makes me feel that little bit better about the most miserable day of the year, then it’s worth it. I really didn’t have a clue that next year I wouldn’t even need to buy my own.
I can’t believe that I’m actually saying this, but this year I actually had somebody to spend Valentine’s Day with. For the first time ever I was actually really looking forward to it. And we both decided to make a big deal out of it because it’s our first one together. I found myself getting so stressed at one point though, trying to find a good restaurant and make it all perfect. Then after a few hours of being a total stress head I realised that actually, the place doesn’t matter. I wasn’t going to be alone and miserable this Valentine’s Day and we do nice things together all of the time anyway. As it turns out though we did manage to find somewhere and it was really special. ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ And I didn’t need to buy my own chocolate! 😀
