Thanks everyone for your posts last week! I hope you enjoyed the blog just as much as I enjoyed releasing my 2009!
This week we are going to flow a lil different so I invite all of you again to post and feel free to discuss, debate, whatever your heart desires! Enjoy.
This past week was a good week! Can’t really complain about much which is rare (lol) but I am thankful for getting through the week. I met with a few friends and they definitely inspired me to keep blogging and to just be myself with this thing. My family has totally been supportive every time I text them with the new blog posts and I am just thankful for the support. Truly I am!
But, I really want to talk about this man made holiday that just recently passed. I’ve never been one to go ooberly insane over “St. Valentine’s Day” and nor do I think anyone else should. Great, it may be a nice day to pop the question, or even celebrate a birthday, to me a nice card will do. I don’t need anything really. Others need to be shown that they are appreciated. I can reason with them in some cases. For instance, when your partner, spouse, fling, jump-off, whatever, that person is to you, feels the need to be appreciated on “St. Valentine’s Day” then you need to do everything your pockets will allow you to do…to make him or her feel special. If money isn’t what you have then you want to cook a nice dinner at the crib. Maybe call a babysitter if there are kids involved and have a nice candlelight dinner. Put some candles all around the room, along with some rose petals and do your thang in the kitchen. That’s a nice gift and any female would appreciate it and so would a male, especially when you know you rarely show your appreciation for one another. But, that’s exactly my point! Why do you have to show your appreciation on one day?!? On February 14th every single year? Why not a little here and there throughout the year?
What if this is your first “St. Valentine’s Day” with someone? Is it appropriate to take them out to dinner, a movie, bowling, to play pool, maybe to Dave and Buster’s, a nightclub, lounge, to see a play on Broadway, to a Bed and Breakfast, or straight to the telli? Wow…so many options and this list can go on forever but what is the appropriate first date? Especially on such a love infested man-made holiday?
Most people go to dinner. I even over heard my waiter on Friday night asking the couple next to me if this was their first “Valentine’s Day” together and he didn’t answer but of course the female did and responded “Yes.” Anyways, it just seems like the common thing to do.
Don’t really recommend the movies although some of you may have done that because it doesn’t allow you to engage in much conversation. To me if a man is interested in knowing me and interested in dating me why, and I repeat in caps, WHY are you taking me to a movie…in the dark? Yes, I know what you’re thinking and yes I am going say it but lights out means there is room for hugging and kissing…in the dark, and you have it in your mind that you’ll have sex…in the dark…maybe even that night!! Like WHY? Why even allow your “first date” to be at a movie…hello!!! In my opinion you’re automatically placed in the “jump-off” category. Now you may be laughing but this is how I see it.
**Side Bar* Did you know that the day before this “St. Valentine’s Day”, February 13th, is known as certified “take your jump off out day” wtfelipé?**
Anyways, sorry if you are thinking about the day you went out with your date because he made up some reason about why the two of you couldn’t go out on Sunday! Oops. This can go for guys too…as Jay-Z once said, “Ladies is pimps too!”
Well let me know what you think is the appropriate first date and why? Also, I would like to know if “St. Valentine’s Day” is a big deal or not to you.
