An Ode to St Valentines Day …

Lets be honest, St Valentines day is the one day of the year where you get it absolutely right or absolutely wrong. A day full of female expectations on what might or might not happen, and if what we do as males is actually going to be enough?

The risks are high, and the effort required to cover all the eventualities majestic. Granted, guys if you are lucky enough to be courting a lady that is happy to accept the simplest of gestures as a token of heart-felt sentiment, then well done, you really have found the needle in the hormonal haystack!

To the rest of us, the risk remains high that you actually get it so wrong that your entire relationship hangs in the balance. Bollox to all the other efforts made through out the year, this is it boys!

St V’s day, Relationship Russian Roulette! Celebrate it? Maybe, for now, I am scared shitless of it …

… perhaps because I have actually to be settled in a relationship on Feb 14th, and hence not have to spend the day or days leading up to, wondering if I have got it right, wrong, nearly right, or if due to a North Easterly breeze, and a prayer (and god forbid!) absolutely right!
