Valentine’s Day fell on a Tuesday this year, which meant fear and panic in the male population took hold the Friday previous. Guys were coming in, ashen faced and trembling, laden with bags from Holts, Tiffany’s and La Senza, desperate to complete the chocolate, jewelry and lingerie trifecta of romance gift giving.
With the exception of those who were buying for wives and girlfriends at the same time, to a man they all recognized the futility of the task at hand. Valentine’s Day reinforces the downward spiral they all feel is just around the corner; STD’s, marriage, infidelity, divorce, heartbreak. Yet they soldier on, expecting reciprocity in the form of magical first kisses, thrilling new and exotic scents, and erotic opportunity.
Valentine’s Day is a holiday long on symbolism and short on time. A man’s window of opportunity shuts tight on the 15th.
To say timing is everything is to understate the obvious. This year, nothing tugged at our heart strings more than the missed opportunity. We wanted to help, but our options were limited.
This is what I mean. Here, take a look:
