Men vs Women on Valentine’s Day

PechangaGreatOak-couple-dining_smWhen 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.

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. 🙂

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?”

  1. I’m a bad one to ask. You’d think being married to a tattooed biker he wouldn’t be really romantic but he’s worse than a woman about Valentine’s even after 24 years . He never forgets ,
    He takes me out and he always buys me a nice gift. He even put a heart shaped ad asking me to marry him and had a heart shaped diamond ring when he asked in 94. Lol so for him it’s the anniversary of when he asked me to marry him and it’s important to us
