Angus asked me if I wanted anything for Valentine's day. I said no. I don't want flowers, a valentine's day chocolate or a gift of any kind. I asked him if he wanted anything, and he also said no.
There is something to be said about having a relationship where how much you love the person is not in question.
Now, this doesn't mean that I don't ask Angus, every once in a while, in a little, bashful voice, whether he loves me. I do. It's usually when I'm feeling small for some reason. Perhaps, I'm stuck artistically, or I'm hankering for my brother, thinking about my sister, or I'm missing being a mum. Maybe the winter is getting me down (like, always). It's rarely because I don't know whether he loves me or not.
I think it's great having a day put aside for lovers. We do need to be reminded how special and necessary it is to have someone say they love you, but you don't need to buy them something in order to do that.
This one is easy.
