A Valentine’s Day Poll

 

Although Valentine’s Day is the day for love to be expressed, there is a portion of our very diverse world that brings some realities to the forefront.  Don’t throw away the sampled chocolate creams, bitten into, and then  left in the Valentine box or try to throw them at any dissenters of the Love Day.  It’s good to let those you love know how much they mean to you.  But let’s look at the other side of the coin, only for purposes of fairness.  It seems gals seem to get more caught up in Valentine’s Day than guys do.   Wanting to do the same thing that day is a plus for happy hearts.   If not, you may have to vote on what you will do.

For example, there are people (okay, I mean guys) who would open their eyes in horror at the thought of their in-laws or anybody being invited for dinner if Valentine’s Day fell on the day of the Super Bowl game. Most guys just aren’t going to be great dining partners on this day, unless you leave the TV on, in view from the table, and no one speaks while the game is on.  Except at half time.  And even then.  Hey, there is great entertainment going on.  (I loved Eli and Odell dirty dancing).    Even the great commercials get ‘quiet time’.   Let’s be fair again – women love Super Bowl. too.  And women come in handy on Super Bowl day if it’s falls on February 14th – to remind their Valentine to get up once in awhile to walk around to avoid blood clots from sitting so long.   If your man is a get up, shout, yell, or ‘flay his hands at plays’ kind of man  – you need not remind him as much.

I love Valentine’s Day whenever it is — I am a romantic and this is THE LOVE DAY. Saying that, I am not responsible for any comments or remarks that come out of this poll quiz – a comparison of woman and men’s views of what they prefer to do on Valentine’s Day.

Okay, here is the quiz ~ which of these Valentine ‘ ideas’ ‘are men’s or women’s?  And which one appeals to both of you?

Place a letter  M  (men)  Or F (female)  or B (Both) at your preferred activity:

1.  I would rather write a poem expressing my love and devotion, tie it with handmade ribbons and valentines, and present it to my sweetheart after I have made a special dinner and fed my love chocolates and bon bons while he/she relaxes on the couch.  Or…

2.  I would rather watch any or all sport events scheduled for that day and give a card during commercials.   If its sunny that day — maybe  wash the car.  Or…

3.  I would rather brush my love’s hair, listen to all she/he did this past week, and go for a leisurely walk holding hands.  And then a quiet dinner – just we two – out somewhere.   Or…

4.  I would rather catch up texting with my friends  & check out  Facebook and maybe play a video game or two.  Or…

5.  I’d rather take my sweetie on a Valentine Hunt to different stores for coffee and doughnuts, visit home-made chocolate stores, and the bakery to let him/her know how sweet he/she is to me. Even if I am accused later for a five pound weight gain from my ‘gift’.  Or…

6. I’d rather jam with my friends for a few hours and then chill out with them for awhile and then take a long nap on the sofa.   Or…

7.  I’d rather sing a made-up love song – maybe a rap love song – and play part of it on my recorder which I haven’t played since fifth grade.   Or…

8.  I’d rather watch the Women’s Ice Hockey scheduled that day – these women rock – they’re no sissies.    Or…

9.  I’d rather share a pizza and then relax on the sofa while watching a rented, sappy chick-flick and cuddle.   Or…

10.  I’d rather my love make a great dinner and then we’d  watch a high-action thriller movie. My love can pop the popcorn and pour us wine.

Extra points as a couple if you pick the same activity.  Are you a match made in Heaven or a loner candidate for Valentine’s Day?   In any event, Show the Love.
