Girly Talk: Valentine's Day

Hi dolls!


YOU are in a committed relationship (married, engaged, long-time boyfriend) having a relaxing night in with a nice bottle of wine, laughing with your husband/fiancé/ boo at all the fools sitting in crowded cinemas or waiting in line to pee or pay for their bill or

YOU are casually dating this bloke and waiting for tonight for him to prove if he’s your Prince Charming or Prince I’m Oh So Afraid of Commitment and Making it Facebook Official (Girl, he’d better bring his A-game tonight.) or

YOU have been badly crushing on this guy that doesn’t even know that you exist and you are just now putting finishing touches to the valentine that is going to land in his locker/mail box or tucked behind his windscreen wiper or maybe

You are sitting comfortably on your sofa eating junk food (Pass me the Cheetos, will you?), watching a Gossip Girl marathon or your favourite mushy chick flick, thinking of nipping off to the kitchen for another scoop of the ice-cream (strawberry-flavoured for me, please) and wearing your Forever Alone t-shirt; or even if 

YOU are having a blast at a girls’ night out, busting a move like there’s no tomorrow:
