It is over. The love is gone. Instagrams about how perfect your relationship is are now unacceptable. And it is certainly time to put those pickup lines away and try something else.
Since it is Feb. 15, people have bombarded me with questions about my Valentine’s Day. People must think I have an interesting life or something … which is clearly stretching the truth.
Are you also sick of being asked how your day was? Here at 4E, we understand that. So here are a few ways to spice up your answers. Because nothing is worse than continually saying the same thing.
“So, how was your Valentine’s Day?”
Make up a crazy tale that will make people instantly jealous. The more craziness, the better. I went to a party downtown and fell madly in love with a European prince. We danced all night and now I’m pulling a Princess Diaries and I am a princess. BOOM.
Food is always better. Make up a story that involves some amazing dinner. The more you describe the food, the more jealous people will be. And you better spend at least 25 minutes talking about your penne. The pasta was so amazing, I felt like I was in Italy. The smell intoxicated me and the cheese melted like an ice cream cone in July.
Put a ring on it. Totally pretend that you got engaged. Who will know? He liked it and then he put a ring on it.
Ignore the question. If you make it seem like a secret, people will instantly think the best. Oh sorry I can’t tell you, it is a secret. But if only you knew…
Forever alone? More like party of one. You can always make it seem better, no matter what the circumstances are.
So go, my friends, and lie about your exploits. Oh, and the truth about my night? Ha, well you kinda had to be there…
