I’m A Lucky Guy
Why? My wife hates Valentine’s Day.
It works out for me. every. single. year.
We don’t celebrate it.
No flowers, cards or lame dinner outings with a million other couples out on the same night at Outback. You know they are just waiting for dinner to be over and, umm, for the rest of the evening to progress. I’ll be honest, this might make me sound like a jerk, but I’ll assure you I’m not. Not usually.
My wife says, and I agree, that couples should celebrate their marriage vows year round. Flowers on a random afternoon. A card expressing my love for no reason. A dinner out, just because. Those are the things that matter. Granted she’s got some pretty good reasons to hate the holiday, but I don’t complain. It doesn’t hurt that there is no pressure on Valentine’s day for me give gifts just because EVERYONE else is.
As of Tuesday (2/12/13) we have been a couple for 8 years. I like being different. I like being us.
