Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (if it takes you two weeks to turn corners…) and I know we’re all looking for a special, unique, and personal way to let our loves know how clever and thoughtful we are.
This holiday also presents us with a completely inappropriate opportunity to begin that open and honest communication our therapists have been trying to sell us for years!
SO, being the compulsively helpful person that I am, I wanted to share some ideas to fill all the open space that Hallmark may leave you.
Valentine, I love you with all of my body and mind and whatever remains of the soul you have slowly sucked out of me over the last (fill in the number) years/months/weeks/days.
Roses are red, Violets are blue, Why are you eating all of my food?
I want to kill you with kindness and knives.
My love, I didn’t realize this year’s Valentine’s Day was 1960’s themed until you gifted me an iron/vacuum/cookie sheet/set of tea towels. Since this is the case, my Valentine’s wish for you is that they reinstate the draft.
I am at my happiest when you are happy. I am at my best when you are at your best. When you are down, I am so low. This is not because I love you fiercely, but because I’m fiercely (and a diagnosed) codependent.
Valentine, What ever did I do to deserve you?
Valentine, Chocolates and roses!?! What woman doesn’t love candy and flowers??? But here’s a thought: Next year save yourself some money and just pick me up a six pack of that Jamie Lee Curtis yogurt and a box of tampons. Same sentiment at half the price.
