Loving words


As Valentine’s day is approaching I thought I would share a couple of things which I have recently discovered you should not to say to your beloved.

1. “You won’t laugh because you haven’t got a sense of humour.”

This prompted the response: “I’ve just got a different sense of humour… so have the teenagers, which is why you don’t get it when we laugh at you.”

2. When commenting on her choice of nightwear during a spell of cold weather: “You look like a well-lagged hot water tank.”

This was meant in a kindly way, but it seemed to fail on many levels.

Would anyone else like to share any romantic exchanges that missed the mark?

    It’s impressive you made it to that 25th anniversary. When I first met my beloved, he described me as “solid”. Us womenfolk are a forgiving bunch.
