Valentine’s Day, a day filled with chocolates, flowers, teddy bears and little notes from secret admirers, how can one not love the feeling Valentine’s Day brings? Although I am single I still love to hear the stories that other people have planned for their loved ones. The effort some people put in to get their crush to notice them is enough to put a smile on my face for the day. Yes some people believe it is only a money making scheme and that love can be celebrated on every other day of the year, but there is just something extra special about Valentine’s day. There is hope that love still exists in today’s modern world and that people still care enough for each other to go the extra mile.
Valentine’s Day is has no target market, it appeals to all, no matter the age no matter the relationship. It is an opportunity to remind your family that you love them, your friends that you care about them, your boyfriend/girlfriend that you thinking about them and your crush that you want them! Valentine’s haters need to be shot with Cupid’s arrow!
Many years back, thanks to Oprah’s extensive knowledge in books I was lucky enough to stumble upon one of the most useful books I have ever purchased. It has truly been my relationship Bible throughout the years. Perhaps it is why I am still single, but I would rather be single and waiting than be with some who is just not that in to me. Most of you have all seen the movie but I suggest you read the book. It’s called He’s Just Not That Into You written by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo. I love the design of this book, the colours and artwork appeal for women and every one of us has stared at our phone waiting for our crush to call at some point in our lives!
I took a little extract from the book, ladies always remember these pointers because you deserve better than the tool you are running after now!
- An excuse is a polite rejection. Men are not afraid of “ruining a friendship.”
- Don’t get tricked into asking him out. If he likes you, he’ll do the asking.
- If you can find him, then he can find you. If he wants to find you, he will.
- Just because you like to lead doesn’t mean he wants to dance. Some traditions are born of nature and last through time for a reason.
- “Hey, let’s meet at so-and-so’s party/any bar/friend’s house” is not a date.
- Men don’t forget how much they like you. So put down the phone.
- You are good enough to be asked out.
If you have to be the aggressor, if you have to pursue, if you have to do the asking out, nine times out of ten, he’s just not that into you! Move on because you deserve a man that will give the world to be with you!
To all a Happy Valentine’s Day, make it count, because you might not get another perfect opportunity to tell someone exactly how you feel!
