Valentine’s Day is approaching, and as I told you somewhere else, I still have no date on that day!. This year I promised to myself I wouldn’t get cynical. And I don’t know why, but many people keep asking me for advice on what to buy for their partners, as I was some kind of relationship guru LOL. The truth is, I do have some dating experience, and many times I have bought great presents, so yes, one may say I am some sort of adviser when it comes to this topic! Anyway, the fact that I don’t currently have a boyfriend doesn’t mean I cannot think about gifts I would love to buy for a special someone on a special date (or gifts that I would love to receive, if given the chance!). So here are some of my personal suggestions for Valentine’s Day gifts.
It used to be so easy. All you needed was a thick mane of tousled auburn locks, high cheekbones and a determined little chin; add an ounce of determination and an event from your past that haunts you still. Then, wham! You were the perfect fictional heroine.
But now itâ€™s not so simple. With television shows like Greyâ€™s Anatomy and Ally McBeal, books like Bridget Jonesâ€™s Diary and Good in Bed, and movies like Miss Congeniality and Legally Blonde, weâ€™re getting all sorts of mixed messages over how the ideal woman is supposed to be. Whatâ€™s a modern girl who wants to hold herself up to impossible standards to do?
Simple! Just follow these guidelines, and youâ€™ll be as witty, complex and neurotic as the rest of them. In other words â€“ you will be the perfect, modern-day fictional heroine.
