With Valentine’s Day coming up in a few days, visions of delicious dark chocolate, red roses, a candle light dinner with soft music, champagne and later, being ravished by the lover of my dreams come to mind. This sounds like a cheesy romance novel, doesn’t it? Ok, it’s still MY fantasy! What is yours? As a VO, I have to voice the conflicted heroine in a romance novel or video who cries, “No,” but she really means, “No, No, do it again!!” as she swoons into the arms of her hero.
My real situation right now is confusing. I don’t know if I have a boyfriend or just a buddy. Either way, I adore him! We’re very compatible, love to talk, laugh, eat good food and watch great movies, etc. The confusion comes when he starts flirting with me! And it is so subtle! This guy is brilliant and successful. Smart men are always attractive to me. I get all tingly inside when I think he might be falling for me! But then the next time we talk, it seems like his flirts never happened. Go figure that one out. We love each other’s company but don’t get a lot of time together. I could fall for this guy, I really could but if this were a novel I was voicing, by now I would be passionately demanding, “Tell me now, kind sir! Am I the love of your life or just a “friend”, —“hopefully, with benefits!!” I would wait breathlessly for his reply, which was whispered, “I don’t know, but I want to find out.” And then he would sweep me up on his horse or limo or whatever and ride to the restaurant where he had made reservations. It could happen, right?
With or without my questionable boyfriend, I do plan on my dark chocolates, a glass of champagne and a favorite dinner – to be accompanied by a great romantic comedy on TV. But there will be hell to pay if I don’t get a phone call or a card! A lady has to have standards!
This Valentine’s Day, I wish you a night of bliss and romance! It’t wonderful to know you are loved, cherished and valued. Wear your red dress and high heels with pride on the 14th and if you are single, you just might be destined to meet “The One,” It can happen, right?
