    Hey friends, don’t we have to celebrate Valentine's day in our Snipetting corner?

    Now, please do NOT be a spoilsport and tell me that romance and love have got to be there everyday (of course, I don’t deny that and wish you the same for every single day in your life ) and not to be hyped about for only one day in a year or that V day is more of an Archies or Hallmarks Day.

    Just go with the flow and bring some romance to our snipetts forum.You have my assurance that the fragrance of love and romance will soon spread to your homes too.:wink:

    Since I know you all so well now, I do not mind confiding in you that try as I could, I could NOT come up with any V day topic (okay, I get it... I have been here toooo long) but still had this weird compulsion to celebrate the day with you so am just going to let us all express some thoughts on love and romance.....

    Since we have different age groups here I hope it will be a plethora of answers and that you will all join me in making this a FUN thread.

    Please fill in the blanks of the following sentences preferably in one line.You are most welcome to go overboard in expressing yourself.:)

    1)Romance to me is.........

    being with the person I love and doing something which we both enjoy. At times being in companiable silence too......:).

    2)Love to me is......

    all about being affectionate and caring....

    3)My ideal venue for a romantic date would be...........

    The beach ...preferably watching the Sunset...

    4)The meal that I would choose for a romantic evening would be....

    Italian and it would surely end with Tiramisu

    5)My favourite romantic song is.....

    too many actually but right on the top of my head it is kabhi kabhi mere dil mein but for some reason I have been humming chand ne kuch kaha raat ne kuch suna since morning..

    6) what I think is most symbolic of romance....

    The moon...

    7) My idea of a perfect Vday gift...

    Some personalized writing /thoughts on a simple card...no hallmark or archies cards for me (though I wouldn’t really refuse diamonds.)

    8)My favourite Love story is...

    Anything that ends with “and they lived happily ever after...”

    9)A message to my Valentine would be....

    thank you for being in my life...

    10) today IF I were to celebrate V day I would.....

    have a take-away dinner and watch some old romantic movie together.

    Thats it Friends ….Simple, isnt it? V day or not, here's wishing you all, happy and enjoyable times with your loved ones....always. God Bless !!!!

    Sorry Friends ,now that turned out to be really Looooong.:)

    and now for some humour in real life...

    I was just kidding with my friend S asking her “So, what plans for Vday?"
    ” Ohhh you know how M (her hubby) is” she repled. “Once I tried to be at my romantic BEST and put off all the lights when I heard his car keys and lit all the scented candles in our house.
    In walks M with his most casual expression asking loudly from the stair way itself“ Enna Sumi …...power-cut ah?”
    Now, arent they a cute couple?:cheers

    OMG..so there are more than one of these men!!!! My husband said the same the first time I prepared a candle light dinner for him. In fact he came in, asked "Enna ma, current illaya?" (This was in Tokyo, there are no power cuts there) ,and switched on all the lights. As if that wasn't enough, he saw all the nice food set on the table and while changing up said, "Pasikkardhu, soru podu" and went to sit with his true love :D the TV!!!! I was furious then, but now they are one of our romantic stories :D

    As for the lovely celebration here in the forum, here are my ideas: (Loved your posts BTW :) )

    1)Romance to me is: Doing things my better half too likes without being asked and vice versa.

    2)Love to me is: Friendship and understanding the other.

    3)My ideal venue for a romantic date would be: Got loads of places we both love to just walk around and talk. Best would be the beach where we spent all our courtship period..and yes, no exaggeration, we spent ALL our time there. Or if there's no beach, any waterside.

    4)The meal that I would choose for a romantic evening would be: A hodgepodge of all our favourite food. Even a whole course of chat would make us both happy.

    5)My favourite romantic song is: Bryan Adams - Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman? is the first of the looooooong list.

    6) What I think is most symbolic of romance: A Kiss

    7) My idea of a perfect Vday gift: Personalised greeting card and chocolates is what I have this year. Last year it was a stuffed toy - a love struck lion for my man..lol

    8)My favourite Love story is: mmmm...Shall we dance and Parthiban Kanavu

    9)A message to my Valentine would be: You were my first valentine ever, and I pray you should be my last.

    10) Today IF I were to celebrate V day I would: Go to pick him up at his work place early and go out for dinner. Come back home and cuddle on the sofa and watch a movie. :)


    PS. Happy Valentine's day to all you lovely ladies and men on IL :)
