It’s that time of the year again, the time when your timeline is flooded with romantic posts and you’re surrounded by all things red. Whether you’re single or not every year you build up the perfect Valentine’s Day in your head only to be err disappointed later. Are we being a little cynical here? We don’t think so, we feel the bar is set too high and it never quite matches to the fantasy in our head. Because here’s how it goes...
The big date
Expectation: A romantic candle light dinner date with bae at your favourite rooftop restaurant.
Reality: Dress up, put on your favourite lipstick, bake for the whole town and eat all of it without feeling guilty.
Staring into bae’s eyes
Expectations: When you expect to stare deeply into your bae's eyes through your mascara laden lashes.
Reality: End up running it down your face while watching P.S. I Love You.
Expectation: When you expect to have your lipstick smudged by bae.
Reality: But you wear the Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color which does not smudge!
The flower gesture
Expectations: Running to the door every now and then with the hope of receiving a flower bouquet from bae.
Reality: Buy a bouquet for yourself, put on your favourite dress and be your own valentine!
