As the “day of love” approaches?
What will this “poly” guy be doing this time?
You know, I haven’t really thought about it.
I’m just not into all of that anymore.
When I was monogamous, unfortunately I was also completely avoidant. My long term partner never got the benefit of my creative romantic imagination back then.
It’s not that I can’t “do it” of course.
But now I see it as mostly irrelevant.
Since I see every time with a partner as special?
Valentine’s Day is completely superfluous.
Even though this is the case, I will probably take myself out somewhere. Maybe a special meal at a place I like, or something equally enjoyable like that.
And yes I’ll likely watch a Romcom.
I still enjoy the feelings Nature’s plan gives us.
Watching the Titanic sink?
It can be enjoyable from a safe arm chair’s distance!
And don’t get me wrong, because I’m not saying I don’t experience romantic feelings for my partners. I just don’t confuse that with needing to embed my entire existence with them.
So while you’re indulging “the fantasy?”
I’ll be over here enjoying REALITY.
Knowing that when the dust clears on this day?
It won’t have made any difference.
But if you use “Cupid’s Day” to have an affair, then I will tip my hat and wish you all the best for it. Romantic love is made up of a lot of little special times like this.
The main difference between you and I?
I don’t wait for Valentine’s Day to do it.
Romancing your partner should be a regular thing.
Not something you only do once per year.
So to all you lovers out there, accept the well wishes of this crazy “poly” guy. And remember whether you admit it or not, you are capable of loving ANYONE.
So go out there and share your heart.
I’ll be here enjoying mine privately.
And when the dust clears on all of this?
We’ll see whose love life works out in the end.
What do you think? Do you really need to celebrate Valentines Day as proof you love your partner, or should every day be Valentines Day for the two of you?
