It’s not the end of the world if you forgot Valentine’s Day. I’ve done it before, and I learned a valuable lesson: own up to it and beg for forgiveness. The wrong thing to do in that situation is lie about forgetting. She’s going to see right though you, ’cause you’re probably going to something dumb like I’ve listed below. Here are a few red flags to look for if you’re wondering whether or not your novio forgot it was Valentine’s Day.
Your bouquet of flowers look like they were stolen:
I don’t even want to know whose grave you took these from and tried to pass them off as a romantic gesture.
He’s dressed like he just did a keg stand:
He probably made a last minute stop at Spencer’s Gifts to get something “date-worthy.”
You get a
Christmas Valentine’s box of chocolates:
Let me guess: he rummaged through the expired candy in the dumpster behind CVS because the Valentine’s candy was already sold out.
You get a cute doll that you’re pretty sure was his dog’s chew toy.
Nothing says romance like a squeaky, slobber-covered plushy.
You receive a last minute e-card instead of an actual Valentine.
Who said romance was dead?
He tries to pass off his leftover Super Bowl balloon as a Valentine’s Day balloon.
This is a whole new kind of “deflategate.”
Your dinner reservation is at 1:30 in the afternoon at a cute little getaway like this:
The Yelp description did say it was secluded…
He asks you to spot him a few bucks for dinner.
It’s almost like he didn’t plan.
Instead of going out to see a movie, he gets you to go back to his place to watch YouTube prank videos on his phone.
He’s convinced this is better than foreplay.
If only he had admitted he forgot it was Valentine’s Day, you could have done something way more fun. There’s always next year!
