Share Your World — 02/14/22

Today is Valentine’s Day and Melanie has given us a series of ‘love’ questions for today’s Share Your World prompt. Personally, I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day, but let’s give this a go, shall we?

Which traditional Valentine’s Day gift would you rather receive: chocolates, flowers, or a card with a personal message?

I was going to say a personal massage, but then I reread the choices and I saw personal message, not massage. But I’m still sticking with personal massage.

Do you like romantic movies?

Not particularly, but my wife does, so I do watch them to please her. Because, you know, happy wife, happy life.

Is Valentine’s Day only about romantic love? Or is it a good occasion to celebrate friendship as well?

I think it can be about celebrating friendships as well as romantic love, assuming one is inclined to celebrate Valentine’s Day at all.

How do you deal with unwanted romantic attention?

At my advanced age, I’d be shocked were I faced with romantic attention, wanted or unwanted.

Share one or two of your favorite memories of your special loved one if you’d like.

The first time I laid eyes on the girl I eventually married I felt as if I had met a real life Disney princess. I was the frog who somehow persuaded her to kiss me, and that kiss turned me into a handsome prince. All that is the honest truth, except for the part about me being a frog who was turned into a handsome prince by a kiss.

    Valentine’s day is about expensive greeting cards, candy, and jewelry. it has nothing to do with love.

    I think you might just be a closet romantic 🙂

    Thanks Fandango for Sharing Your World. Valentine’s Day is one of ‘those’ days that folks either hate or love it seems. The romance can be bought idea is fairly nasty and I think commercialism has ruined what may have been a simple and sweet day once upon a time. I am a closet romantic, but I don’t actually believe I’m going to find me a frog. Not at this late date….it would have Covid with my luck. Have a splendid week!

    I defy the retailers and celebrate those I care about with a simple “Happy Valentine’s Day” text, letter or phone call. It can be what you want it to be, you do not have to cave to the pressures of retailers.
