Is the day of mandatory love. A day every man is expected to get his sweetheart a present. And HE better not forget! It better be something sweet, preferably chocolate and romantic, candle light dinner for two?
We don't DO Valentines day at all. Not in my house. The only reason it is recognized at all is because Dragon proposed to me on this day years ago. It is a date neither one of us would forget. The little things we do for each other every other day of the year means so much more.
What things you ask?
A love not in his lunch box.
A letter left under my pillow.
A bubble bath
chocolates just because.
Noting special about these days. No mandatory gift giving or push to find something romantic. Just a small token of affection that says, "I love you." That means so much more than just one day a year.
