For Students: The language of love
Updated: Feb 9
Hello February 13th nothing special happens on this date, right? Right. But tomorrow is a different story. Valentine's Day, the day when you have to treat your missus or man extra special.
You might not have a bird or a guy on your arm, but plan on going to some kind of Valentine's party where you might see someone you fancy, you might talk to him/her and hit-it-off and the rest could be history as they say. You might be thinking there will be lots of lonely hearts on this day that just want a one-night-stand or see it as your chance to show you're a real ladies man and ask out that girl you have been eyeing up for months in your office.
You could be happily married or engaged and plan a candle-lit dinner with your fiancée or even thinking that you have been going out with each other for a long time now and it's time to get down on one knee and then propose to your girlfriend and hope she says yes and then becomes your fiancee.
It's possible you're in a loveless relationship, and you're running off to your bit on the side. The affair you've been having for 6 months will no doubt be enjoyable, but how long before your other half finds out you have been cheating on them.
Just like the film, you might have friends with benefits and because your relationship is no-strings attached in the bedroom department you won't need to go to the gym tomorrow night to exercise.
February 14th could be a date you wish to forget as you split up with your girlfriend/boyfriend or even crueller they dump you by txt message.... brutal! But it could be a date to remember as that chat up line you have used in the past finally works as you think you have found the one. It's likely this date could be the date you make up and get back together with your partner which will no doubt involve a night of rumpy-pumpy.
You might want to go out and party, but your yin to your yang doesn't want to and because you are under the thumb and she wears the trousers in the relations you'll just stay in with NetFlix (and chill... if you're lucky)
And of course, you may just want to stay at home, be alone, and beat your meat / flick your bean in peace without the hassle of spending any money or being around lovesick people
Whatever you do, enjoy and be safe
