The first year I had a legit boyfriend the one that talked about wanting to marry me I was excited when Valentines Day came around I dressed all cute and got him balloons and flowers and picked the perfect card and wrote the sweetest message in it.
something was wrong though. So I made the mistake of saying “it seems like you don’t even want a girlfriend” and he was quiet and said “maybe I don’t”
The problem he was struggling with was his suicidal crackhead mom couldn’t stand him having a girlfriend that had him bettering his life. And my parents were too squeeky clean making her feel ashamed. And he still loves me 25 years and a divorce later.
But it seems that confusing breakup cursed me!
Valentines Day historically makes me sad and even when I was married didn’t meet my expectations. But the things he did for me were rushed and devoid of actual love.
This year I am dating someone passionate but due to his culture being different not sure he celebrates it. But I will take the passion!
