When February rolls around, most women start to think about chocolate hearts and roses and maybe even strawberries dipped in chocolate. A nice dinner out, without kids, at a restaurant with a real tablecloth and cloth napkins where the menus that aren’t sticky, would be heaven. Add a bottle of wine to that fantasy and she’d do anything he wanted. Even that.
Men on the other hand, according to Macho Marine, start out the month trying to find a way to finagle a trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras where “they celebrate the way men should “. I guess that means a place where testosterone skyrockets and pheromones saturate the air as mass quantities of alcohol are consumed and inhibitions are shrugged off at the city line.
Once men realize that they are in a committed relationship, in love, married, or just want a guarantee to get laid, February takes on a whole new meaning. Anticipation (or substitute dread, fear, horror) builds as the days tick near the 14th. What the hell are they going to get her for that terrorizing holiday, Valentine’s Day. Some men go with the tried and true basics; heart-shaped box of candy–that Whitman’s has made $millions off of since 1842– and overpriced red roses that will die within a week.
Ladies, I suggest this year you tell men what you really want….a romance novel. Offer to even pick one out or put several on HIS Amazon Wish List, that way you’ll be surprised when it arrives. Hey, it won’t make you fat. It doesn’t die after a week. You can return and read it again whenever you want. You can even share it. 🙂
Then give him what he really wants…..
Take the book into the bedroom and slide naked between the cool crisp sheets which don’t begin to diminish the heat of your body. Look at him with love in your eyes as you hand him the book and ask, “Can we start on page 152 and try that?”
