February 15, 2016: day 18 of 60 day challenge- post-St Valentine

Dear February,

I have started questioning myself on love, and two of my wise blog-friends, Anna and Erika have contributed valuable comments yesterday. Anna is in love and loved by a great guy. I think the same stands for Erika. So they both told me, the hypothesis of my Spanish friend: “society has changed and there are no stable loving couples”, is not valid. I like their perspective better.

Erika also said, every form of loving relationship has its value. Love for one day, with someone you meet on the plane. Short term relationship with someone who changes and so have you. You have the difference between a hot dog on the run, a sort of fast food, average restaurant. And then, you have true love, that is like haute cuisine and 3 stars restaurant at the Michelin guide, if I may use the cuisine comparison.

Do you need to have tried all the other versions to appreciate the 3 star in the Michelin guide restaurant? No. But also, yes.

There are moments we are not available, Erika says. We have this meeting to catch, so a hot dog from someone in the street is fine. Or we just stop at the fast food for a while. But a 3 star restaurant is not only related to expenses, but also needs planning, reservation. You can’t just decide it at the last-minute. So, somehow, it has to be a priority number one.

Now, what kind of love are you ready for April?

I would like to be invited to the 3 star restaurant. In this way I save some time and enjoy the outcome all the same 😉

February 1rst- Welcome love-month ;-)

February welcome!

I should probably have waited before telling you this, but you somehow raise my expectations considering my love life. Saint Valentine’s day on the 14? Not that I  expect you to do everything, the way we wait for Santa-Clauss to bring the gifts while we sleep, but somehow, deep down, I might feel entitled for a miraculous intervention in that sector of my life.

Of course, I will do my part. I have almost accepted a party invitation for Valentine’s day. Almost, because it comes from an extravagant friend who usually has expensive plans and I want to stay on budget. Other options? I could have as an objective to date as many men as possible this month. But is quantity the only thing that matters? Of course not.

I can also be forgiving to this ex of mine who tries to contact me again. But not too forgiving as to let him get too close.

Or I could be open to the people I meet every day, change some of my habitual ways, cafés, the road I take to go to the Platform, or to any other place.

Or just relax, and listen to more love songs, smile and daydream. Or a combination of these ideas.

If I try to avoid questions on my professional goals? Not at all. I don’t know where you got this idea!

Here, isn’t this Edith Piaf’s love-song beautifully interpreted by Daniela?
