This is my Valentine, Rich (also my boyfriend). We are pretty gross and know that we border on annoyingly cute. According to one friend we are permitted a window of one year after we begin dating to be obnoxiously cute and obsessed with one another. I trust her judgment since she's in her own mushy-wushy romance of her own. Since its Valentine's Day and we are still in that glowing kissy-face stage (and have technically only been together since New Year's) he has already made today extra special and its only 2PM. First of all, he acknowledged the holiday and for my sake is playing along because I've never had a proper Valentine's day. No one has ever just played along on this goofy holiday for any other reason than to see me smile and make my day special.
Special it is. On my way to work this morning I discovered two cards on my car window: A kitty card you might have given your crush in elementary school with a matching pencil stating "You're a purr-fectly stylish Valentine," (he know's what compliments I like best), and another one of a monkey that is "going banana's" over me with a lollipop. Tonight we're going out to a nice dinner together and hanging out cuddling and hopefully making out.
Most of all, I'm happy that he's stuck around long enough with me to make it to Valentines Day. I didn't make it easy for him. When we met last May I had just come out of a very strange and draining relationship and wasn't interested in boyfriends. I'll admit I jerked him around and was totally unfair by seeing other people and pretending to not care and yet when I rekindled our friendship after a month of not talking and made it clear that's all it would be, he still wanted to see me.
The more time we spent together the more I fell in love with him. I still didn't want a boyfriend though. Months went by, all my friends referred to him as my boyfriend while I vehemently denied it. I knew the direction my feelings were going in and I fought it hard, and wasn't always nice to him.
I'm not sure what changed exactly, but having someone so fun and wonderful around making me so incredibly happy all the time must have worn down my bitterness.
He always says that he's lucky, but I know that I'm the lucky one because he fought with me for my affection and won by a mile.
Happy Valentine's Day Rich! Don't be mad that I posted this!!! <3
