Two years ago today I was celebrating Valentine’s Day with my ex-boyfriend *Barry. It was our first Valentine’s Day together and our last. Like I said with my first post, the signs were there that the relationship wouldn’t last. But I hadn’t been in a relationship for a while and it was nice to have someone to go out with. Someone to cuddle with. Someone to talk to.
Anyway, for his job Valentine’s Day was one of the busiest days of the year for him. So being the awesome girlfriend I was I suggested we celebrate on February 15th instead. The restaurants would be less busy. The hotel room would be slightly cheaper. He would be happier if he didn’t have to take his busiest day of the year off.
As Valentine’s Days go it was pretty good even though it was a day late. We stayed in a hotel for the night because he lived with a friend and we were NEVER alone. We checked in early then headed over to The Keg for dinner. After that we went to see a movie. The remake of Friday the 13th. I’m a horror fan so yes, that was a romantic movie for me. 🙂
Of course shortly after that day things started going down hill. But I’m glad they did. Otherwise I wouldn’t be with *John now. Our second Valentine’s Day together was awesome. He got me an amazing gift. A hockey jersey from my favourite OHL team signed by all the players. I’m so glad he didn’t get me chocolate. No, I’m not being sarcastic. I do love the jersey and chocolate would have been way too many points. I can’t wait for all the Valentine’s Days to come.
