My boyfriend only likes Thanksgiving and Christmas.
He scorns his birthday.
And Valentine’s Day seems to be
completely off his radar.
My question is, what’s the story with Cupid?
Where is that little cherub when February 14th rolls around?
Where is he when my boyfriend asks…”Cupid Who?”
Claims He Never Gave Any Girls Cards in Grade School.
What? Almost everybody knows that both teachers and parents vehemently insisted that the practice of Valentine’s Day card giving was a mandatory exercise.
I suspect it’s best you not go into “his” parents here. I’ve met them.
They didn’t insist on much of anything. Since I didn’t go to school with my clue-less romantiphobe I can’t honestly speak to the type of teachers he had. But they definitely excused his absence that day. Oh! I probably should have mentioned, he took a sick day.
He Makes Me Sick Every Year Around This Time!
There I said it. Are you reading this with an open-mind?
Do you even care that every year I politic for a dozen roses, or a box of the myriads of candy choices. I don’t even care about those really.
I’d settle for a card, a pair of knee highs even. Just want Valentine’s Day to mean something; especially to you know who.
Interestingly enough, the boyfriend I love (him) has the nerve to ask me to accompany him shopping the week of this love holiday. We walk into stores with cards and he turns down this very aisle.
I’m almost embarrassed to tell you this part. Then he walks slowly by card after card rack. His head never turns. His peripheral vision is like no man I’ve been with. I swear if there’s such a thing as a setting. His is on 100!
You’re probably wondering…
Do I buy him a card or a small romantic gift? Let me put it this way.
I take my cues from the times I’ve tried to give him birthday cards, bake him a birthday cake, invite him out to dinner, or buy him a birthday gift.
Don’t buy somebody who doesn’t like a holiday or a special personal day anything unless you want to be horribly disappointed.
Facial expressions alone will almost certainly damage your relationship for the rest of the year.
Almost did with mine!
Here Is What I Do Instead
I make sure to buy myself a card, that’s the first thing. Then I find a movie I like in a theater full of people who are enjoying Valentine’s Day TOGETHER.
I get a big thing of popcorn, some of those ice creams balls (which I chomp down on as HARD as I can), and wile the night away in the midst of positive energy. ‘Cause it isn’t at home; at least not that evening.
What’s Your Story?
Gosh, I hope it’s not as piss poor as mine. Please share it in the response box below. I need to hear all about it, grizzly or no.
Think of it this way, you may not be comfortable going to a movie by yourself, you may not like ice cream balls, and you sure as hell are not going to be caught dead buying yourself a Valentine’s Day card.
I mean what would the cashier think of you.
Share! I need to know you feel me on this one.
