Valentine's day is passed for another year. Was it a delightful event or did you find yourself unable to do a thing right where Romancing on Valentine's is concerned?
There are often divisions in how people see special events like St Valentine's Day.
The cynics see it as purely advertising for increased commercial and retail sales. The greeting card industry, along with florists, lingerie suppliers, and restaurants get the biggest kicking from the disdainful.
Of course, these businesses are successful at this time of year because the market drives it. (And if you were someone other than Pink Apple you might wonder which comes first, the products/services or the demand. But we'll leave that tedious debate for others.)
On the other side, are the lovers and the die-hard Romantics (note the Capital "R") who see SVD as an opportunity to pause and acknowledge and express love.
Like all debates, there are valid comments on both sides.
But what Pink Apple is interested in, is what happened to you?
Did you get an old-fashioned anonymous Valentine that still has you intrigued?
Did you exchange cards or gifts with your love?
Was there a marvellous meal either in a restaurant or your own dining room which celebrated your partnership?
Did someone pop "The Question" to you? Did you say yes?
Did all this "romance", conjured for a particular day, leave you feeling thrilled or disheartened?
Did nothing happen and you're disappointed? Or content?
Scroll down, and send Pink Apple a comment, telling us all what happened for you.
If you know someone who's got a story to tell (romantic or otherwise) in answer to these questions, or who has strong feelings about Valentine's, please forward this link to them and encourage them to share with us either in the comments below or in an email direct to Pink Apple!
Pink Apple has our own opinions. In the near future Take A Bite will host some discussion on the place of "Romance" in relationships, so we're looking for people to quote or chat with in greater detail. Are you up for the challenge?
