VD Isn’t Just A STD!
VD also stands for Valentine’s Day. Might as well be an STD, because that’s about how much I like it. I have never been thrilled about Valentine’s Day, for the simple fact I hate having to wonder first, if I’m going to even have a “Valentine”, and second, if that “Valentine” is going to be a reciprocal gift-giver. This year I do happen to have a Valentine, and thought it best just to come out and ask him if we were going to exchange gifts. I think I actually asked him what his thoughts on Valentine’s Day were. His reply was, “It’s just another day to me. Does that upset you?” That’s a good question. In general, it doesn’t upset me, because it technically is just another day, and another way for retailers to make money. That’s what I think in theory. In practice, I would love to get a big bouquet of flowers, or some expensive bottle of perfume, or a nice new pair of cowboy boots. (Didn’t expect that last one did you? lol) But, it seems I have a man who isn’t overly romantic. I really don’t go in for the hearts and flowers bullshit anyway. My preference would be to get something heartfelt, on an unexpected day. Will he be the type to do that? I don’t know yet. As of today we have known each other about a month and a half. I think things are going quite well. Already he has surprised me with some of the things he’s done, so I guess a girl can never know what might happen on an unexpected day.
I purposefully avoid things on VD day. As you note, I’d much rather be romantic on pretty much any other day. Just my contrary nature I guess. Of course, since I’ve been single the past 2 years I haven’t much choice in the matter anyway!
I am kind of an any day of the week gift giver. If the feeling hits me, I will buy a person a gift. :). To me “just because” gifts are the best kind!
So, I’ll be expecting a random gift from you any day now…. 😉
Pretty sure I mailed it already! lol
