What do women really want for Valentine's day?
Written by Alison A. Armstrong
Well… We want chocolates, mushy greeting cards,
flowers sent to the office, real jewellery
and much anticipated marriage proposals...
Or do we?
I think what women crave more than anything else is
And I was hoping to find it somewhere in that box
of Valentine’s chocolates. Is it between the caramels
and the nut chews?
Maybe the chocolates are
an expression of his Feelings for me.
And if I could break open those feelings,
like I broke open that mocha crème…
In my search for intimacy, I would gaze intently
into my boyfriend’s eyes and ask,
“How do you feel about me?”
I thought that if I could get him to talk
about his feelings, then I would experience being
close to him. If he would “open up emotionally,”
then we could have those intimate moments
for which I longed. To know him, to connect
with him, I must connect with his emotions.
I must hear about his feelings.
Or so I thought.
