I love my BF, but every year I need to convince him to do Valentines Day and it’s super frustrating.
When it comes to Valentines Day, look, I get it. It’s cheesy. It’s a made up holiday by Hallmark and the candy corporation. I really do get it.
But the cheeseball romantic in me every year wishes for a thoughtful, generous V-Day that never really happens. For the record, this was our third valentines Day together, and every year we’ve gone out to dinner and he gets me a card and flowers…but only becaue I have to beg/convince/remind him. Every year he moans and groans about doing it and talks about how stupid it is.
I wish for one year he could just get into it and be really romantic. I admittedly get jealous when I look on the threads here about what others’ SOs did for them, all the pretty jewelery and mentions of massage or nail salon gift cards, and while I was at work today we had seven flower delivieries show up. It makes me astronomically annoyed that I have to convince my BF every year just to go out to dinner, and then he moans and groans and complains about it.
We live near Philly and got slammed with snow over and over again the past week, so my car had literally about 7 inches of snow piled up all over the windshield, roof, hood, etc…so I spent the first 20 minutes of my day yesterday cleaning off my car…the entire time thinking “he really couldn’t have done me a romantic little favor and cleaned off my car for me on his way out??” (he leaves in the morning first)
On the way to work I stopped and got him his card and on the way home I got him Jack Daniels and Coca Cola, his favorite….and when we met up at home we spent a half hour actually fighting (we’re in the midst of arguing about getting a dog…it’s a long story), then went to dinner where we sat in complete silence for the first 20 minutes, argued quietly while I desperately tried to stop myself from crying for the next 20 minutes, then ended up trying to resolve it and talk it out for a little while towards the end. And to top it off, dinner itself sucked.
I just want some godamn ROMANCE. Cheesy, gag inducing, cliche romance.
A few weeks ago I told him if he celebrated a nice V-Day with me I’d do “Steak and a B***job” Day one month after, March 14th….that’s definitely not happening now, lol.
