Valentine’s day:Expectation vs Reality

Every year, you build up Valentine’s Day in your head like it’s going to be this beyond romantic day filled with moments that could literally be their own movie. And then every year, you’re sorely disappointed. And yet, no matter how many times you’re bitterly underwhelmed by the reality of Valentine’s Day, you still think this year is going to be the year.

The big date
Expectation: A nice, romantic night by candlelight.

Reality: All the restaurants are booked so you’re stuck at home.

 Dinner

Expectation: A fancy restaurant with white tablecloths. You’ll be staring at each other over a delicious dinner, anticipating the romance afterwards.

Reality:Your date didn’t make a reservation in time, and now it’s really hard to find somewhere to eat. You end up having to go to some overpriced place with a pre fixe menu you’re not even into. The whole time you feel guilty about how expensive it is.
