You'd think one of the cheesiest couples on earth is all about about hearts, candies and flowers every 14th of February. Well, Surprise! Surprise! J and I don't do Valentine's Day (aka Extortion Day).
It's no red letter day for us, just our usual Date Day / Night. Last year, we spent it in Baguio with the rest of the clan. Tomorrow, we're nibbling our way to Chinatown for the Binondo Food Wok.
But since V-Day is major for every one else, I won't spoil the fun. No "don't-waste-your-time-and-money-on-Feb-14" rants here. I'm sharing some Love Rules* I can relate to. =)
For Single Women (Been there, done that!)...
"If he likes you, you'll know. If he doesn't, you'll be confused."
--sayitloud, on glamour.com
"Just because some cute girl (or guy) likes the same bizarro crap you do doesn't make her (or him) your soulmate."
--Rachel, in (500) Days of Summer
For Married Women (Living by these rules now!)...
"You need not think alike to love alike."
--Jillian Maxwell, Brooklyn
"All love that has not friendship for its base is like a mansion built upon the sand."
--poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox
"Let there be spaces in your togetherness."
--poet Kahlil Gibran
For every one who loves, I'm sharing our very own Love Rule...
"All or nothing."
--A and J
I'm wishing you all lots of love, any day, every day!
