Act Dangerously

07 Feb



Romantic that I am, I adore Valentine’s Day.

Not so much for the exchange of cards, gifts and supper between those who are already lovers.  I can see the romance, the affirmation, the enchantment and the intimacy – I have fallen under its amorous spell often enough. Yet one can also almost smell the commercial cynicism at this time of the year.

No, I think what really makes February the fourteenth special is that it provides almost-strangers the perfect excuse and the ideal opportunity to flirt outrageously.

And to act dangerously.

This is not a new post, but it has become almost a Valentine’s Day tradition for me to repost it around this time of year, to remind readers to be bold.

    I, too, love Valentine’s Day. But have never considered this intriguing aspect of it. Thank you!

    Oh but aren’t there petrifying consequences of such outrageous flirting at times?
    What if a great misfortune befalls my poor little heart?

    I hate Valentine’s Day
    Tell me you love me everyday of the year
    But v’day is just for retail. IMO
    Yet, I loved this poem Sir.

      I deeply dislike the sentimental commercialism but like the potential for fun. Thank you. Smiles.
