When Is Valentine Day

Hazel sat down on the couch in her apartment feeling sad and angry. Two days past valentines’ day and yet her boyfriend Wycliffe had said nothing! Not even a ‘happy valentines’s wish! At first, she had been worried that maybe he got into an accident or something bad happened to him considering the fact that his job requires a lot of traveling. But after learning from one of their mutual friends that evening that Wycliffe had been in town all along from Valentines’ day eve, the concern turned to anger!

All those messages she had left him asking him: how he is if he misses her if he could make back in town for valentines, telling him how much she misses him. All that and nothing! Not a single word from the guy! She decided to find something to distract herself from her trail of thoughts. She didn’t like what she was thinking about and all the doubts, accusations, and conclusions she was coming to. Scrolling through the movies on Netflix, she decided to watch the movie “Like Crazy”. She started crying halfway into the movie when Anna was denied entry back into the country.

Her heart bled out for her as she let it all out with the predicament she was facing.

“Of all the movies you had to choose, did it have to be that one?” Wycliffe asked after he couldn’t take it anymore.

He had entered the apartment quietly wanting to surprise his girlfriend only to find her crying. Hazel just looked up at him slowly with a confused expression.

“I thought…” She started as she wiped her tears.

“You thought what.” Wycliffe cut her off as he got closer to her.

“You don’t love me anymore? Or you were cheating on me?” She said as she looked directly into his eyes as they were inches away from each other.

“How can you ever think that Hazel! You have no idea just how much I love you. How much I miss you every moment I am away from you.” Wycliffe said with a hint of hurt in his voice.

Hazel was expressionless and confused. She wondered why he didn’t come to her if he loves her that much.

“You were in town and you didn’t tell me anything. It was Valentine’s Day!” She said, turning away from Wycliffe.

“Yes I was in town and as much as I wanted to be with you, I had to take care of something.”

“What could be so important for you to take care of on Valentine’s eve!” Hazel snapped back.

“You!” Wycliffe said gently as he turned her around to face him. “You are important Hazel.” He added as he enveloped her in a warm hug that she couldn’t resist. She had missed him so much.

“Now come on, we have somewhere to go.” He said as he let her go slowly and held her hand.

“Where to, valentine’s day is long gone!” Hazel said looking down.

“No, my dear,” Wycliffe said as he lifted her chin up. “I spent Valentine’s day organizing something special just for you. We can go anywhere you want too, and it won’t be crowded with couples everywhere. Every day is Valentine’s day when I am with you and since I am going to be with you forever, then my life is going to be Valentine’s day every day.”

“Are you…” Hazel started with excitement before Wycliffe closed her mouth with a gentle soft kiss that progressively turned into a demanding kiss.

Valentines’ Day is Today!

It doesn’t matter what day of the year you are reading this. Valentines’ day is today, it is tomorrow and it is Valentine’s day every day as long as you are together with the one you love. February 14nth isn’t the day to let go of all the romantic words you’ve been pilling up or saving for Valentine’s day or waiting to do something special for your partner on that day.

Every day with the person you love is a special day just like that 14nth of February. Most people wait until that day to romance their partners or the one they love. What if you wait too long only to find that you don’t have a relationship on that day that you so long waited for?

Every day is Valentines’ day. Don’t wait for February to bring your partner breakfast in bed or show some romance. Don’t wait for special occasions to show just how much you love and appreciate your partner.

Just Being Rhetoric

Are you waiting for Valentines’ to rekindle your romance?

Are you waiting to show love to your partner on Valentines’ day?

What if your plans are spoiled for that day, does it mean the moment for romance is gone until next Valentines’?

Suppose you don’t make it to next valentines’…

  1. I really enjoyed reading throughout this story. Very well writing and intriguing, but most importantly, I really loved how at the end you made a point stating that Valentine’s Day is everyday not just a specific day. Same goes to a lot of holidays as well. As a society, we’re in too deep towards what it’s expected and what people think it’s a norm and what isn’t. We need to live our lives in a way that we can make worth every second of every moment. 

    1. Very well said, living life the way we want it not as society states it for us. At the end of the day, it all comes down to “Are you happy and proud of who you are?”

  2. Aww, this is a very sweet post. And yeah, Valentine Day should be every day. Every day is a unique and magnificent opportunity to show love. And it will return to us in many forms. I like your writing stile and I can’d agree more with the message. Thank you very much!

  3. I found the content in the Valentine’s Day post and Quarantine post basic and concise, but in a really good way! 

    The Valentine’s Day one is simple and (now that I’ve read it) obvious, and the quarantine one is absolutely right, I hope as many people who need to be reminded of this can read it and help with their perspective of whatever situation they’re in.

    The site itself is really well presented, too. 

    I look forward to more content on more topics, you’ve clearly got a good grasp of the above!

  4. Wow! This is really lovely to read and I appreciate every seconds and minutes I spent reading this post. Definitely I agree with you that valentine is everyday and it should always be like that as celebration of life and celebration of everything good too. I like what  this is and exactly what makes everything worthwhile. thanks for sharing this post out here andi appreciate it

  5. I think some of us kill the thrill of valentine’s day because we probably expect too much from our partners. I do believe if you treat everyday like its valentine’s day then we probably won’t expect too much. I like the angle this story took as I honestly thought the guy did not want the girl anymore but that wasn’t the case as he explained everything. I wish our mentality could be like that but instead of making every day special we think about making just one-day special. What if that one day never comes. That is something we all need to think about as we live our lives. 

    1. Yes, you are right. People expect too much on that day because every other day is not much appreciated and that’s where great disappointments come in when that day is not recognized 

  6. Wow! This is really big and masive to see and I really appreciate all you have shared out here. To be very honest, this overview here about Valentine’s day is a Greta post. Love is not supposed to he shown specifically in a day. It should be shown everyday because our love should grow with each day. Definitely, valentine’s day is definitely everyday activities that we do for love

  7. I’m just just impressed, I totally felt in love with your story, I enjoyed reading it. Usually I’m not a big fan of this kind of writing, but you made it special.

    Thanks for sharing it, people must know how important it is to understand that showing care to our love ones must be done on a daily basis, not just every valentine’s day.

  8. I really enjoyed reading this article and I believe you are perfectly right. Love should be express everyday and little romantic gestures shown to your partner. Love cannot be celebrated only on Valentines’s day.

    Many thanks for sharing this

    Kind regards,
    Yoana

  9. Very interesting read and a beautiful message end the end of the post. Life is too short to dedicate love only on a specific day once a year. How about if we make it special every day of year? Life is beautiful, so make it interesting and lovable.

    Best regards

  10. How can I say this? “Awesome” should sum it up well! You have really put some thought into this. Who created Valentine’s Day and why is it so important? This is some great thought provoking food for thought.

  11. Powerful and strong message. I like your way if telling the story and I have to say this is one of the best Valentine’s Day stories I’e heard in a long time. Being a romantic myself, I’ll take this idea with me 🙂

    You’re right. Every day is Valentines Day and we should keep this practice alive all year long, not just one day in a year. Thanks for sharing this post!
