"So Let it Be Written... So Let it Be Done"

The life and times of a real, down to earth, nice guy. A relocated New Englander formerly living somewhere north of Boston, but now soaking up the bright sun of southwestern central Florida (aka The Gulf Coast). Welcome to my blog world. Please leave it as clean as it was before you came. Thanks for visiting, BTW please leave a relevant comment so I know you were here. No blog spam, please.

Since today is Valentine's Day, I briefly did some surfing on the internet (no excuse needed to do this, really) and found some articles that those of you un-single folks might actually find helpful or at least worth a look-see. Even single folks, such as myself, might find them interesting. (Obviously I did, since I posted about them....)

The Cost of Showing You Care. It's crazy that Valentine's Day has become almost as commercial of a holiday as Christmas. I don't really think it matters how much money you spend on your partner today but the quality of the gift itself. Maybe the gift doesn't/won't matter at all. Maybe it's the quality of time you spend with your partner today that will matter most.

Be Irresistable. I think this is a good list for the women. I haven't found a similar list for the guys, though. Does such a list exist?

11 Things Women Don't Know About Men. Secretly though, I think women do know these things since they, as a general rule, are more perceptive on these things than men are. They just don't like us to know they know these things. There are some men who are exceptions to the rule and they know it. There are also men who, while not exceptions, do show some promise in such things (someone like myself, perhaps...). ;>)

As I said last week, being someone's Valentine shouldn't be a one day deal, anyway. It's a 24/7/365¼ adventure that you share with your partner every day of your life together.

I may not know everything about relationships and I may even know nothing at all. I'm fairly certain that this is true though - or it should be.

Happy Valentine's Day to you all!

My future boyfriend might think I've lost it...or he may go looking for the golden egg...Haha

Seriously, I do like the lists.
Now I need someone to practice them on!

Happy Valentines Day, Green

...or you could just show him the egg and be done with it. LOL

Happy Valentine's Day to you too, Kayla.

Unless that someone is a truck driver. then it's roughly 40 hours per week if you're lucky!

BTW - Happy V-day!

Why am I expected to read his mind, if he's not expected to read mine? LOL!

Thanks for the comment & the link!
Will reciprocate asap.

p.s. I'd rather have a guy cook me a meal than buy me a diamond on Valentine's Day! (...or chocolate... he could buy me chocolate... that works! ;-)

Happy be-lated Valentine's Day to you too green. :)
Nice post.
I agree with your first paragraph. The gift is a nice gesture / thought but the most important thing is the time spent with your partner. Just my opinion....

jin: thanks for returning the visit and commenting! I linked you because otherwise I'd forget to come back and visit.

Yeah, a home cooked meal is always good. I can cook. I'm not a professional chef by any means but I do ok.

zep: nice to hear from you! How are you doing?

Yes, quality time with your partner any day - not just on Valentine's - is good.
