We’re one week away from Valentine’s Day, that day devoted to romance, flowers, chocolates, and other expressions of devotion between committed couples (as well as some who probably should be committed). Over those seven days, expect Yahoo headlines to come up with a dozen silly articles about how giving chocolates is code for ‘I want you to become fat so nobody else will love you’ and how the number of carats in the jewelry is an infallible guide to how much he (or she) loves you.But that’s all canned stuff that feeds into a Hallmark cum DeBeers view of love as a commodity.Sure, there are guys who give gifts with an agenda. Sure, there are jewelry gifts that are generous simply because the giver has the bucks and thinks you’ll like it. And sometimes a chocolate is just a chocolate.What I’m wondering is this: what is the most romantic gift you were ever given for Valentine’s Day? Was it one of the standards (jewelry, chocolate, fancy dinner with champagne)? Was it something less expected?And on the other hand, what was the least romantic gift you ever got for V-Day? PS: Don’t ask me what happened with the formatting. I really did break this up into paragraphs, but WordPress decided it looked better as one big block. Sorry.
