Friends, Reader, Countrymen – with Valentine’s Day around the corner, here’s a small bit of advice. Don’t let the perfect become the enemy of the good. A Valentine’s Day night with a Friend with Benefits is better than one spent alone or with some desperate, hookup partner. True, it’s not as good as having a “proper,” romantic partner on Valentine’s Day, but a Friend with Benefits is a relationship partner, therefor both good enough and far less stressful than the norm on this upcoming holiday.
Pedantic Note: The yellow roses with some red-blushed one amongst them are a “hat tip” to one variant of the Floriography of Victorian times in which yellow roses were for friendship and red ones for romantic interests. 😉
