I think it is important to state my credentials as a lover of love. I would assume that if you are here, this part would be unnecessary, but I plan for this to be an inclusive place, and so that would include one or two stragglers who subscribed on whimsy because I tweeted something about The Office and who don’t know that being a romantic comprises a substantial part of my personality. So let me state again: I love love. Aside from being a romance author (my agent, publicist, lawyer and psychic say I should say order Love in Colour!
Really liked this! I personally have a weird relationship with love. The couples around me that were supposed to be inspirational actually weren't and so I'm not sure I believe in love (for) myself, but I like seeing other people being cute? So I'm charmed reading about your parents. :) Sorry to bombard you with this pretty irrelevant information, but your post brought it out in me!
love this Bolu...definitely feel ambivalent about the day but not this note!!
The best thing to happen to a Tuesday morning EVER. Bolu my queen this is utterly sensational x
A beautiful read, Bolu! As all your writing is, it's infinitely intimate, mellifluous, and heart-wrenching in all the best ways. Excited to read more from you as we continue into this year. ❤️

You get me😭😭😭
Fantastic piece; and what an insightful way to think about anniversaries. Much love to you Bolu!
Perfectly put! Love this and look forward to the next 🥰
I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS. especially the "opinions subject to change" part. I haven't read something I have entirely connected with this much in a long time. At every turn I was laughing and surprised at how I would be shaking my head in agreement again and again..in my heart. (For me at this time, Valentines day looks like ignoring the thought that everyone is being "encouraged" to PDA and imaging I'm in a world were everyone is actually so happy and kind and eager to love on each other everyday for the day. Delusion? Maybe, but I like it that way.)
Wonderful! Just a wonderful encapsulation of all my feelings and rom com opinions/tv show choices in a post. Thank you for sharing!
