All the Love on Valentine's!
Yep, you're right! The DQ has got it all! Imagine the perfect Valentine's day ever.
My man in a dashing suit taking you out to the most perfect candlelight dinner atop a five star hotel with the most breathtaking view ever. As dessert comes to an end sipping on our champagne, he kneels down and brings out a small velvet box. It could only be THAT.
THIS is the moment of my life. He opened his mouth to say something but somehow all the noises in the background was drowning him out and suddenly I was falling backwards into a black hole with no end. I keep falling and falling.
And I woke up like an idion flailing my farms in bed at 6pm this Valentine's day. Well, apparently that was where I spent the majority of my Valentine's Day so I do have to give credits to it. My comfortable bed covered with sweat when I was dying from a combination of food poisoning, gas, fever, headache and body ache. AND the constant runs between the bathroom to the bed to the kitchen and back to the bed. ( I should try out for the marathon!)
So my sweetie called to talk for a while because I just didn't have the energy to sit in front of the computer and that was lovely for about 30 mins and I started dozing off. I suddenly agreed with him that Valentine's Day is overrated. Well, he did first. His theory. Why do they have to make one official day just to proclaim you love somebody? Why can't you do that any other day? Or everyday even perhaps! Its just commercial because all of a sudden, they (the industry!!) decides to jack up the price of every product which leaves you the theory that goes along the lines of the degree of romanticism or how much money he lavished on you for the day/night is equivalent to his feelings for you? BOLLOCKS! What if he's just a poor lad with nothing to give to you but his heart and soul? Isn't that enough?
Well, I guess not in today's world. So anyways, I agreed with my man but I also did give him my point of view. What if other couple aren't like us; thus, they find it harder to express themselves on a daily basis. Long distance can seriously make you bolder and gives you the courage to open up, put trust in the relationship and express what you have to because that's how you keep your love alive and basically, it's hard to tell by their actions when you're not really there. For people who finds it hard to express their feelings, they are very thankful that there is a Valentine's day because they are then kind of forced to portray all these cheesy gestures (even if they secretly want to but don't have the balls for it/ Okay not everybody is as pro PDA as me.) Everybody's going to do something on this particular day anyways so I won't end up being the only cheesy Romeo. Another POV: For all those couples who are so busy with work that stopping to show some love becomes a tedious effort is just not a part of their routine, Valentine's day is a reminder for them to show their loves ones how appreciative they feel and just all those lovey dovey gushy feelings they have. So overrated, underrated, you rate it according to your own wants and needs.
I don't really need a Valentine's day because he gives me what I need already. Occasional suprises and presents when I least expected it and his LOVE every single day... (photos & details in another entry)
Because of this, to The DQ, everyday IS Valentine's Day!
