16 Days and counting…

As you may have guessed, this is always the busiest time of year for a matchmaker.  Everyone wants a date for Valentines Day!  Well almost everyone…So far this week I have talked to two of my friends that are in relationships and they are actually dreading Valentines Day!  What?  Are you crazy?  They both have boyfriends and they are dreading Valentines Day!  What about those of us that don’t have someone special to share this most romantic day of all days with!  How dare you complain about Valentines Day, you have a boyfriend! LOL

Essentially what it boils down to is the fear of unmet expectations!  As usual society dictates a certain manner of acceptable behavior for us which generate anxiety over what should be a blissful day.  I personally blame chick flicks and romantic comedies for this!  Oh, so flowers or a heart shaped box of chocolates is not enough?  Seriously, if your man is not a romantic everyday how can you expect much more then the typical gifts that society teaches us for this particular day?  They don’t watch chick flicks!  lol

Romance may not be every man’s forte!  I would think just knowing that he cares would be enough.  Maybe he might not be skilled in the art of poetry or just doesn’t know to spread rose petals all over the bed before you get home but at least you know he cares every day!

So all I am trying to say is cut the man a break!  Be thankful that you don’t have to spend the evening alone with a bottle of Moet and rejoice in your singleness and end up shedding a few tears because you don’t have anyone who knows you prefer daisies over roses…lol!

Just saying…

So which is worse?  Having someone you love to spend Valentines Day with or having no one at all and spending it alone?

    Being a hopeless romantic myself I would plan a special day for my lady but since I don’t have one how about I bring a bottle of Moet over and we can rejoice in our singleness together. No tears though. For a mans point of view we are always worried about living up to these expectations. Yes we know you ladies have them! The problem is some of us are not as smart in the romance department as you would hope. A man stop off at the store, picks up a heart shaped box of chocolates picks out a card and think “she is going to love this.” We feel proud at that moment and when we see the disappointment in your eyes at the end of the night we can’t figure out why! So tell us Miss Matchmaker, what are we suppose to do?

    DW I understand truly what you are saying and plan the address that issue on a separate blog next week. Not that I want to leave you in suspense but that is really an answer better address in it’s entirety then fragmented here in comments.

    The grass always looks greener on the other side. I have been in both situations here and I think now, being older and wiser, I would prefer to spend the day with someone I truly cared for.

    I suppose that would be nice but honestly I am very comfortable on my own right now! Either way I’d be content…
