Long story short, my boyfriend slept all Valentine's Day, which left me feeling very lonely and disappointed.
I went on a walk on my own, he bought half-wiled tulips off a woman who had been gifted the flowers by her husband - a nice gesture, but not what I had anticipated.
See, I have very low expectations, but this was my first Valentine's Day ever where I was in a relationship, and I had told him in advance (communication is key) that I would love to get roses and chocolate on Valentine's, just because it would be a sweet gesture.
We gift each other something small each month for our anniversary because we're bored and love gifting one another, so we decided to turn it into something a little bigger this month (to make up for Valentine's) and I have to say, he really stepped his (already amazing) game up.
I miss having pets and have found taking care of plants to be a nice substitute, so he had given me a small orchid to take care off a few weeks back. I had managed to kill it, for reasons I am now aware off (it was a very cheap plant that had no shot at surviving in the first place), and I was pretty sad about that, so he decided to get me a new one.
He had already given me two beautiful and stunning succulents to take care off the previous day. Still, he returned with the most glorious orchid I had ever seen, absolutely amazing and beyond beautiful roses in a variety of colours and some cake.
After enjoying a cup of tea together, he told me he'd go and get himself some new shoes. So, he went, and came back with white Nike Air Force 1, which suited him well and I was really happy for him. Mainly because he doesn't have that many shoes and rarely ever spends money on clothes. He then said that this wasn't everything he'd gotten, went into another room and handed me another box.
I opened it and saw a beautiful pair of the Valentine's Day edition of the Air Force 1 (they have a heart on them on the side of the shoe). I honestly couldn't believe he had remembered that we had talked about getting a pair of couples shoes ages ago.
This is what I had been craving for years - someone so considerate they'd remember what I told them even months later.
I couldn't be happier right now and have been focussing on my offline life more than I have on posting here. So much has happened I honestly can't even process it right now.
My heart is so full but I have an important choice to make when it comes to this relationship, I'll try to write about that in my next post.
