Best Valentine’s EVER?

Is all the hype surrounding Valentine’s getting to you? Do you sometimes feel like you’re missing the boat? The love boat, that is, the big white one that’s set to sail the high seas of expectations only to get caught up in the perfect storm of disappointment and run aground, leaving you emotionally marooned on a crumby desert island all by yourself?

Chances are, we’ve all felt this way at one time or another. Yet as I look around, I still see loads of people frantically searching for the perfect gift for that special someone in their life.

Don’t get me wrong. I love V Day as much as the next girl but sometimes, just sometimes, it hasn’t lived up to my expectations.

I mean, it might be the time I was doing my damnedest to be sexy and alluring whilst nibbling on caviar and sipping vodka in a kitschy Russian lounge only to be totally upstaged by the drunken Russian singer trying to pick up my date. From Russia with love? I don’t think so lady. Or maybe it was the Valentine’s Day (I clearly remember it was a Friday) I won the prize for best dressed at work—just so you know, I never win anything and was literally tingling with all the excitement only Miss Universe might experience—and couldn’t wait to bestow my heavenly graces on my boyfriend only to discover that he’d gone out on his own for the evening… He’d simply forgotten what day it was and made other plans. (Who does that anyhow?) No wonder my mother still gives me chocolates.

Ok, now it’s your turn. How about sharing some of your juicy Valentine stories?
