However far removed from your idea of what “special and meaningful” that gift is, accept, acknowledge and cherish it as his idea of “special and meaningful.” Be big enough to have room in your heart for both his and your ways of loving.
Don’t pout. You’ll put a chill on the evening far worse than any hillside, which could cause a rift between you and damage your love. Instead, laugh inside at the quirky ways in which we are blessedly different, pull down your muffler and give him a righteous Valentine’s Day kiss. You’ll warm up in no time.
