    ~maybe you could surprise him with something out of the box…spark his romantic side…get him wanting to be…catch him off guard and maybe just maybe one day he will be that romantic guy!?! brightest blessings~

  3. I feel your pain. My hubs is not so romantic either. It’s a good thing he’s a great husband and dad otherwise!

    From what I can tell, there is a lot of that “not romantic” going around. I hope he will come through in a better way than you are expecting.

    Those six words, could have been mine too! If I didn´t mention that tomorrow was Valentines Day, he wouldn´t even notice…. I probably won´t. Sometimes I do, sometime I just leave him….
    He has his good moments, but Valentines day is NOT one of them! :)

      Tell me about it! I haven’t said a word, and I’m just trying not to dwell on it. What will be will be. Blah.

  6. Jim says:

    Golly, from the comments I might be ‘romantic.’ I am not very by my standards but I always do have for Mrs. Jim a card and a box of chocolates.
    That is me. I am not a flower person or I might be ‘romantic.’
    Jenn, let us keep hoping there will be a suprise waiting this time or soon. :-)

    I had a romantic man. He picked me flowers, bought me chocolates, and insisted on dancing with me whenever certain songs came on the radio. Once he even pulled the car off the highway so we could dance beside it. All the stuff romantic dreams are made of — but he couldn’t hold down a job, and wouldn’t “waste” money on bills and clothing. Money was for spending in honkey-tonks and getting drunk.

    I now have a mostly unromantic man. The bills are paid. There is food in the cupboard. I have a roof over my head and no longer have to cringe at the thought of answering the phone. I will never again get served an eviction notice for non-payment of rent. And when, on occasion, my man does something accidentally romantic, I know it is because he means it.

    You know, I can relate. My man has his moments but right now, we’ve been in a funk for the past month. We’re getting along and everything seems normal except…he just hasn’t said “I love you” this whole time. Let’s just see what tomorrow brings. I have my doubts though. I’ve been let down every year. What makes this year any different, right? I just hope this will be a good year for you :o)

    Happy 6WS!

    Yeah, I’m basically in the same boat. But Mr. Fairway has been known to surprise his chicas…

  13. jazzbumpa says:

    Have the best day you can.

    Tomorrow is also the anniversary of my wife’s previous marriage. Not something I care to celebrate.

  14. Annie says:

    Who knows….he may surprise you. I’ll cross my fingers for you. I try not to have any expectations for Valentines day. I had to plan our day and make the reservations for Sunday brunch. Geesh! But,I’m also grateful for a good and steady man.

    On a side note. The Olympic opening ceremony was AMAZING. Way to go Canada.

  15. Hootin' Anni says:

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you too —it means nothing, really…as long as the one you love is by your side. If it’s just another day for him…..that’s okay too. I’ve had my man beside me for over 40 years, and if he chooses to ignore the special day—-no problem.

    I just KNOW your day will be filled with love and laughter…that’s the best gift of all…laughter.

    Thanks for visiting with me yesterday. I got really busy and didn’t get a chance to visit with you!!

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your family my friend. I hope you have a wonderful day :) *me crosses his fingers that hubby does something nice. If not me thinks there will be hell to pay ROFLMAO

    Hope *the hubby* surprised you today, Jenn. It’s been a typical Sunday around here :( And, of course, I respect the fact that he’s an amazing man, fantastic dad, and good husband, but a little somethin’ somethin’ every now and then (and especially on Valentine’s Day!!) would be nice too….sigh. I think I’ll go read the Valentines from the kids again :)

  18. Betty says:

    I saw another post on my reader, but on your blog it doesn´t show. Maybe you deleted it? It´s ok to rant once in a while. I hope you got over your disappointment. You know what happened to me today? We went out for lunch (I hadn´t mentioned it was Valentines Day) and hubby suddenly asks me if it was V-Day? I smiled and said yes, and at least he was a bit embarrassed…. :) But after 30 years, I´ve somehow come to terms that it´s just not his thing, to think of being romantic. I agree with Quilly´s comment.

    • Jenn says:

      Hi Betty! Actually, yes, I did, then realized how whiny it sounded, and decided it was better left in the trash pile. Your hubby is too cute!! At least you got to spend some quality time with him today. Really, that is all I wanted too.

      I agree with Quilly’s comment too :) She knows the other side of the coin, and it made her wiser!

      It all boils down to getting some attention, I think. I don’t know that I really want flowers and candlelit dinners and dancing all the time – it’s not me either! But… once in a while, just to show that I’m special to him, it sure would be nice.

      Ah well.

  19. I assume you survived the day you love to hate?

  20. Call Me Cate says:

    I’m sorry he’s not a romantic but glad you seem to have survived the day. Joe’s inconsistent in the romance category but day-to-day, I still think he’s a pretty good guy so I keep him around.

    Thanks for playing 6WS!
