Like you, we know how much time you and your significant other don’t have to do things like, oh, remember to plan and buy gifts for Valentine’s Day, birthdays and anniversaries.
It doesn’t matter how many reminders I set to buy gifts and plan a nice evening out with my main squeeze, many a celebrations end up one of two ways:
- The standard dinner and a movie.
- Netflix and (forget to) chill…mainly because we fell asleep and reached a point in our relationship when sometimes sleep > sex.
Oh, and did I mention that we often fail to get each other gifts because…ain’t nobody got time to shop!
