If you would believe these headlines, Valentine’s Day is seen by the general public as a marketing stunt, and the only ones that profit from it are shop owners. Not much because the people who celebrate Valentine’s day in the Netherlands declines every year…
Well, I believe in Love. I believe it is not in gifts, love is shown in every day acts. By saying on strange moments “I love you”, or by giving her a special gift she is longing for a long time. Love is attention. Pay attention to your loved one. Know what she will like. Know what she wants to buy but don’t want to spend on herself. If you are not interested you will never know. So love is paying attention to details. And love is stating the obvious. If she asks you “do you still love me?”, make a mental note you are saying it not enough.
So Love is no path of roses (or candy, or sugar hearts) but it’s most truly reflected in your actions, not in what you feel, think or say.
