Happy February to one and all! I am very aware that the majority of you reading this may either frown or raise a suspicious eyebrow, questioning my motives behind that statement. Let’s face it, apart from a certain controversial amorous day, most will argue that there is nothing memorable, poignant or extraordinary about the month of February….well unless you are fortunate to win the lottery!
Whilst it would be tempting to write about a certain young man armed with a passionate arrow and sentimental bow, I have used him as inspiration to write a couple of love letters.
Are you one of those individuals that indulge in conversations that compare the music from the 90’s to illustrate your lack of appreciation for the music now?
Have you caught yourself admitting that you’re old, simply because of the programmes, raves or fashion tastes that you remember from a decade ago?
Or have you had the insightful opportunity to compare your dating experiences over the years?
If you answered a resounding ‘YES’ to the above, I think you may appreciate my take on dating in 2013.
90’s LOVE LETTER
I tried to call you as I wanted to pass by and see you. Did you get the flowers I sent?
I know you are not a fan of roses from the way your eyes streamed the last time I got them, so I thought I’d change it up a little and got a colourful combination, to reflect your personality. When you get in from work, have a listen to the mix-tape that is attached to the card. I hope you like it, but I know certain tracks will bring back certain memories. Well I hope they do.
Track 1: The moment I binned my black book, after you told me you loved me and I knew I felt the same. Sorry for not saying it at the time, but I had not made the jump from DMX to Jodeci.
Track 3: The day I met you after work. It was late and the train journey was long, but seeing your smile as we shared that portion of chips, made it worth it. P.s you owe me a scarf!
Track 7: The random picnic we had in Clapham Park. Do you remember them showing Ocean’s Eleven on that makeshift screen and the discreet playtime we had in the playground? I do!
Track 8: The surprise! Ok, I messed up by being extremely late, but you know you loved my creative take, not forgetting the
I know you will conveniently have certain memories to attach to the remaining 8 tracks, but remember that this is not a competition! Ha-ha. You know I have no problems expressing my emotions, but I think the simple ones are the best. Love you.
Looking good in the pics that you sent to me, have you got anymore? I knew there was more to that cheeky smile, when I sent those virtual winks on the site a couple of weeks ago. Can you email your number as the contacts in my other phone have been deleted? I don’t know about you but I can only hold a one-way convo for some time and I am finding our email conversations quite time consuming! lol
Glad you liked the WhatsApp pic of the flowers that I sent. That text you sent me last night was rather sweet. Sorry that I took long to reply, but I haven’t got any credit in that phone, but just so you know you can always reach me on BB or WhatsApp.
Can’t really say that I am a fan of the whole Valentine’s Day thing, as I think it’s a rip off, but seeing as it means so much to you, we can always meet up for a drink if you want later?
Let me know, as some of my boys are going for drinks, so I’ll join them if you are busy
Happy Valentines Baby
(Hope you have a surprise for me later, if not a pic will do!)
Now I know these are very extreme example, but the ones that giggled whilst reading this understand that the principle remains the same.
Whilst there have been amazing benefits, for some, virtual advancement in the Love sphere has replaced romantic gestures, sexy banter, effort, intimacy, physical contact, direct communication and tangible gestures…
With virtual flowers, kisses and chocolates, sexy pics, Facebook declarations of love, text arguments and LOL’s.
