Valentine’s Day indeed

Here is a girl writing a post about Valentine’s Day who hates anything in the shape of a heart.

I don’t know who got the idea of drawing a heart this way.


We all studied parts of a human body in our Science class in School. Does our heart look any similar to this? Absolutely not.

Following the ritual of checking Facebook and Twitter once I start my laptop, I see the following post on my Facebook Home page titled 

21 Awkward Valentine’s Day Cards For Your Confusing Modern Relationship

A good read. Made my day 🙂

Last week my best friend mentioned to me that he met ‘my S’. S is my college time crush. Oh I can’t get over him still. He introduced himself as part of the army when we first met and gullible me even thought that he was serious.

Further as I scrolled down on Facebook, I see MY crush tagged in a photo with a quote. And guess what. The photo was of him and his girlfriend. Like it was obvious that he would be dating but out of all days and after so many years, today was the day chosen to tell me about this. Nice. I take the pleasure of mentioning the words of some famous person she quoted along with the photo.

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby.
Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life. Much Cliched…#HappyValentinesDay ” ( Oh sure the last sentence is hers)
And then I go on Yahoo to check my emails (Yes, I Still use Yahoo) and see a feature saying Autocompose a Valentine. I liked the options it gave.


Some of the not-so-mushy messages which it generates are:






That’s all I can handle till now. Twitter, Instagram and stepping out of the house is still pending. Let’s see what is in store. Will update this post if I spot anything more to add to this.

Have a great day!
