Ethical Lingerie

Do you buy lingerie for Valentine’s day? It isn’t really my thing.  I’ve thought about doing it, but I just don’t know how. In movies women go into the bathroom right before bed and come out all dressed up & pose in the doorway. If I did that my spouse would fall asleep and when I came out he would be out cold snoring.

As you can tell I’m not really into Valentines lol. Before you jump to conclusions and assume I am bitter and single. I’m not. I am in a very happy long-term relationship. My disdain for the day goes waaay back, from as early as elementary school. I hated the way Valentines day made me feel. When I was in grade school, if I didn’t receive as many cards as the girl next to me I would feel insecure. When I was older and single, I would feel like a failure. The pats on the back from family and friends saying, ” Don’t worry, one day you will find Mr Right”. It irked me. I wasnt upset I was single, I quite enjoyed it.
