I glanced at the phone of my colleague.
His WhatsApp was filled with heart and kiss smileys from his wife.
I know this is supposed to be cute and adorable.
But for me, it makes me cringe.
Yet I am sure that most people find it odd that the smileys Jasper and I send each other are mainly these:
The red angry face means “miss you” or “take care of yourself”.
The clown means “Ok ok, I admit. This time you are funnier than I am”
The dear means “You’re awesome”.
I guess, somewhere along the way, you develop a certain “style” of loving each other.
There should be no right or wrong, but I bet most of us feel a certain pressure now that V-day is 2 days away.
Buy a present, go out for dinner, send many “I love you’s”.
I strolled around the city yesterday in search of a present.
I can continue the trend we had for the past 2 years.
Buying a fluffy toy.
But our house is already filled with tigers, a polar bear, a wolf, a moose, a pug, a duck and a beaver.
Is a pair of socks romantic enough? 😉
Dinner at V-day cannot be done spontaneously. Not in a restaurant at least.
Since both Jasper and I are not great at remembering to make any reservations, I guess that idea goes down the drain.
Home made pasta it is.
Plus, who wants to be sitting in between all these love birds. 😉
My love letter will our always favorite Skeptical Valentino.
And he will laugh and send me many red angry face back.
Then we both now, this means love 😉
Are you a romantic? And what does that mean to you?
Which Smileys do you like you use to express love?
Any plans for V-day?
