Valentine’s is a tricky road of cliches and panic. And love. Yes, there’s some of that too.
If you’re looking for a slightly more creative way of showing some adoration, here’s a tip that I like to work with:
Do you have a favourite hobby/food/place/activity? It’s a little unconventional for sure, but telling someone that you love/like/fancy them more than a particularly prized object or activity gives a tangible comparison.
For example, I LOVE granola. So much so that I took to eating it for breakfast every morning. Then I started lovingly baking my own. Sometimes I’ll even eat it for not-breakfast. Now and then, for a treat I’ll keep a shot glass of granola to hand so I can nibble on it whilst I’m working…
Anyway, if I’m to tell my partner that I love him more than I love granola, then BOOM: that’s a mighty comparison right there.
I also like this technique from other perspectives too. This was the line of thought behind these pictures:
