Will you be my Valentine?

by Rod Smith

Cut and paste for your Valentine card or romantic conversation. Please tweak to make it more romantic. 

Ten ways to love you. I will:

  • Not cut you off from your family or friends.
  • Take care of myself so I am in good shape to love both of us. 
  • Do nothing that can be considered controlling because I know love and control cannot coexist within the same relationship.
  • Seek acts of intimacy that we both desire and enjoy. 
  • Encourage you to pursue your interests, hobbies, and passions. 
  • Do all I can to listen and hear you and I know the difference between the two. 
  • Fight off any twinges of jealousy I may feel and I will not blame you for any of my feelings – they are mine. I own them.  
  • Support you to get further education.
  • Not allow forgiven material to resurface between us. 
  • Regularly, for extended periods, several hours at a time, turn off my phone so we can really be together.

I shall be speaking at a Breakfast for Women, 9 am to 10:30 am, on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at the Butcher Boys Restaurant, Hillcrest. Book now at hello@caitlyndebeer.com. R120, continental breakfast. The venue changed in order to increase capacity. I am humbled that the extra space is selling fast.

  1. Dear Rod,
    Do you have any plans to venture up north while you’re in sunny South Africa (beyond the boerewors curtain) to Pretoria? We’d love to hear you speak. Kind regards, Elizabeth.
