Valentine’s Day and Roses – Which color and how many?

Want to send roses to your sweetheart? You really must read this 🙂

The Color of the Rose Matters!

Red? Are you in love already? Whether or not you’ve expressed your love is a different matter, but if you are in love, send red roses. They say, “I Love You.”

Pink? Are you happy and thankful that someone is in your life? Do you want to say “Thank you”? If yes, go for dark pink roses. You can also go for lighter pink, but not the lightest, for they’d express condolences or sympathy. You don’t want your roses to say that on Valentine’s day, unless there’s a reason for it. You can also send pink roses to make up after a tiff 🙂

Yellow? If you are more friends than lovers, send yellow roses. You can combine yellow roses with red or dark pink roses too, for friendship often strengthen love.

Lavender? If you are falling in love with someone, gift lavender roses. These would be the right color roses to gift when are hoping that your love will be reciprocated, but you aren’t sure yet. So lavender roses could be your messengers of love to your love-interest.

White? White signifies purity and innocence. You can combine white roses with roses of any other color, and it would symbolize continuity and unity.

The Number of Roses Matter too!

And what about the number of roses you send? (Combine the number with the color to discover what you must send.)

  • 1 Rose = loyalty and devotion.
  • 2 Roses = Let us come together (marriage?)
  • 11 Roses = Deep forever love
  • 12 Roses = Love coupled with admiration
  • 13 Roses = A secret admirer
  • 24 Roses = I’m crazy about you (think about you night and day)

Which is the rose that you should stay away from?

Definitely black – if at all you can find it. Black signifies sadness and more specifically mourning.

If you are not yet an item, it’s a good idea to not send orange roses to a woman because it signifies that you “desire” her. Generally speaking, women like to know that they are desired, only after they know that they are cherished.

That’s all I have on roses 🙂 My Love My Valentine the iPad game of love, romance, rivalry, and courtship arrives on the App Store tomorrow. Do stop by the App Store to check it out, and download it on your iPad – you may want to send your sweetheart 54 original love messages, each with a single red rose 🙂

A single red rose means Forever Love.

5 Original Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Him :)

Here are 5 mint-fresh Valentine’s Day gift ideas for him 🙂

  1. Buy a book that he’d like to read, and write short and sweet love messages on random pages. (If he is a techie, find him a book on the language that he programs in – I am in love with a programmer, and I know that this works.) Wrap it up beautifully and present it to him. It’s a good idea to tell him that he must not loan the book before he has read it 🙂
  2. Buy a beautiful bottle of cologne. Empty it into another normal bottle. Write a love-message telling him that he doesn’t need a cologne to smell good to you. Now make a really thin roll of the message and push it inside (but not completely or he’ll never get to reading it.) Gift wrap the bottle and give it to him along with the cologne (just in case, he really does need it ;-))
  3. Create a blog, pour your heart out, mark it private, and share it with him. Alternatively, keep it public and tell the whole world how much you love him.
  4. Get a caricaturist to draw your caricatures portraying both of you doing something funny. For instance, if you are just starting out, you could get a sketch that shows you both on his bike/in a car… if you want to really get one done, pay a visit to Shafali’s Caricatures.
  5. And as an add-on…
    If he has an iPad, gift him “My Love My Valentine – A Game of Romantic Courtship.” It’s an arcade game with 54 levels, which begins by asking him his sweetheart’s name. As he plays through the levels, he receives love messages that are signed with your name, and he also gets the opportunity to send you 54 different love messages, as he clears those levels.
    The good news is that through this game you’ll be with him, even when you aren’t 🙂

Bullet for My Valentine and… Valentine’s Day. Really?

Question: So why “Bullet for My Valentine” call themselves by this mysterious name?

Answer: This Heavy Metal band, which was formed in 1998, released its first album”The Poison,” in the US on February 14th 2006.

Question: But why “Bullet for My Valentine?”

Honest Submission: I’ve no idea of the true story behind the name, but then here’s some bit of theorizing:

Possible Answers:

One of the musicians (Mathew Tuck, Michael Thomas, Michael Paget, and Jason James) had suffered from a broken heart, right before they launched their first album on Valentine’s day.

OR

They wanted their album to hit the mark and win hearts on Valentine’s day and so they decided to call themselves “Bullet for my Valentine!”

I’ve no idea whether any of their songs have anything to do with Valentine’s Day, but I’ve realized that some of the lyrics of their songs have a strong dark streak.

You can also read more about them here.

 

Call the paramedics, Cupid just shot me! Be My Valentine – A Song for Loving Hearts by Jackie Boyz!

Love songs…love songs…love songs…

They are the only songs I love, they are the only songs I’d listen to – if I ever listened to songs 🙂

This song by Jackie Boyz made me remember the time when cupid had shot me. That arrow, dipped in the magic potion of love, went straight into my heart, and it stayed there forever. My friends said, I should pull it out, or I could die of unrequited love; so I tried to pull it out, but it had gone in so deep, that if I tried to pull it out, I’d die any way. So I left it there. The sweet poison of love began to act, and I, the person I was until then, died. In its place, a new me was born. This new me was different. She walked on the clouds, she saw a world that was filled with so many colors that she didn’t know existed…she just felt so different.

And so when I listened to the Be My Valentine song by Jackie Boyz, its lyrics took into back to that day, when I was struck by cupid’s arrow.

Here are the sweet lyrics of this fabulous song 🙂 Girls, hold your breath. Click this link to listen to song, while you read the lyrics below. (I am leaving out the repetitions, though.)

Call the paramedic, call the… call the paramedic,
Call the paramedic cupid… cupid just shot me!

I can’t get you out of my my head,
Spending all my time searching for the one i want to be with.
The prettiest girl I ever did see,
I didn’t know, cupid was aiming at me,
I wonder if… I wonder if she knows? 

So if you got the one for your heart, in the sky
let him know that love is starting.
No I never had to wonder why, ‘cos I know for sure.

She is the reason why I buy a lot of candy,
In the mall spending all my money,
I’ve got to make it clear so she understands me,
I ain’t got a girlfriend, but you can be my valentine.

Baby you can, baby, baby you can…you can be my valentine!

Isn’t it lovely?

Valentine’s Day – 5 Sweet and Original Gift Ideas for Her.

If you are wondering how you can make an indeliable impression on the girl of your dreams, here are 5 original ideas to set her heart aflutter.

  1. Buy a romantic book. Browse through its pages. Find the most romantic statements and underline them. You can also add your own feelings on random pages. Wrap it in a Valentine’s Day wrapping paper, and write on the cover, “for your eyes only.” Gift her the book. You’ll know when she has read it.
  2. Send her a box shaped like a heart containing a tiny slip with the message, “This is my heart, and it’s empty. I want you to live in it forever.”
  3. If you are young, seriously in love, and you can’t afford to gift her jewelry; gift her a jewelry box instead. Write a sincere love-note and tell her that one day you hope to fill it for her.
  4. Write 7 love-notes to her, but not on paper. Instead, discover unconventional things to write them on. For instance, a piece of bark, a paper-napkin, chocolate-wrapper, a lace handkerchief, and so on. Surprise her; let her know that you think of her all the time. Oh, and don’t send those love-notes to her all at once, send them one day at a time. A good time to begin would be February 8.
  5. If she has an iPad, gift her “My Love My Valentine – A Game of Romantic Courtship.” As she plays those 54 levels with your name as her sweetheart’s, the bond of your friendship will strengthen and your love will bloom. If she doesn’t have an iPad, download the game on yours, and play with it in front of her, with her name as your sweetheart’s. (Read more about the game My Love My Valentine here.) It’s a good idea to add this $0.99 gift to any other gift that you may be planning to give her – for it would last longer and bring you closer 🙂

I’ll soon be back with 5 gift ideas for him too 🙂

Why Snowy the Dove carries your love messages to your Sweetheart?

Snowy the dove that carries love letters to your sweetheart in the ipad valentine's day app - the Game of Romance and Rivalry, My Love My Valentine.

It was a bright and sunny spring afternoon. The soft balmy breeze ruffled the white silky feathers of the two doves that sat on the branch of a Cypress tree. As the light-rays shone through and danced on their soft feathers, their beaks touched lightly. Snowy knew that she had found her soulmate. She knew that now her life would be defined by their love. They’d fly together to find the material they’d need to build their first nest, and then they’d look after their eggs and their chicks together. Doves mated for life, and this was the reason why they were often called love-doves or love-birds. Sitting with him with his feathers touching hers, in that moment of supreme bliss, Snowy knew why doves were meant to live together, and then why they wanted to die together. She sniffed the air and a subtle warmth spread through her chest. They drew closer, snuggled up, and she closed her eyes.

In that moment of bliss, when she was neither awake nor asleep, she heard a twang. Her eyes flew open and a muffled scream escaped her throat. A pebble that looked the size of a rock was hurtling towards them. In a daze, she turned towards him…just in time to see the pebble hit him in the chest, and then time just slowed down for her. She saw the light go out of his beautiful eyes, as he tumbled backwards and fell. She could hear her own scream die out. Snowy flew down to him. She chirped, she cried, she combed his beautiful feathers with her beak; but she couldn’t wake him up. He was gone, and she was alone. She wanted to die too. Follow her mate out of this world into another, into the heaven of birds, where they could be together forever.

Snowy was about to begin the ritual of plucking her feathers out, when she saw a man step around the huge rock that was right in front of the Cypress tree. This was his killer, Snowy knew it in an instant, and she also knew that he now wanted her mate’s body. She wasn’t going to let him accomplish his evil goal. She was going to die with him any way, what would be a better death than the one she could earn avenging her husband? So she rose and flew straight into his face. The man, however, was prepared for her attack, and he dodged her, letting her crash into another tree that grew on the cliff, behind that huge rock. Snowy tumbled down the rough edge of the cliff into the valley below. She’d have gone all the way down and possibly died, when her fall was broken by a soft abandoned nest.

The whole afternoon she lay there unconscious. It was only towards dusk that she regained consciousness, when clouds gathered overhead and some raindrops found their way into her parched throat. Her first thought was about him, and so she flew up once again. The tree was there, so was the rock, but her mate’s body was gone. She could see a few drops of dried blood on that branch and a soggy white feather on the ground. This was all that was left of their love and her life.

She looked around absently. There was nothing left to do in life….she’d better die.

But then something caught her eye. A pink envelope sealed with a beautiful pink heart. What was that? A love-letter, perhaps. She walked towards it, slowly and sadly. The letter was inside the envelope. It never reached the person who it was written for. Perhaps Snowy could help? Perhaps she could deliver the letter and unite two hearts?

So, Snowy delivered the letter and helped unite two loving hearts. She realized that while she had lost her own love, she could help those who were in love by delivering their love-messages.

Let Snowy deliver your letters to your sweetheart. Meet her in the iPad game of love. If you have an iPad, play “My Love My Valentine – The Game of Romantic Rivalry – MLMV-HD“, put your love notes into envelopes and send them to your sweetheart with Snowy, but remember that your rival is competing with you, and your rival has got deep-pockets and shallow ethics, so while you dodge burning matchsticks, also prepare yourself to face:

A Hurt Pigeon seeks his revenge on the App Store – Why Crappigeo hates Valentine’s Day?

He sat on a branch, looking at the skyline of the city. He could almost make out the high-rise that had been his home since his birth. As he sat there he heard a rumble in his stomach. “Funny,” he thought, “I can hear my stomach.”

And then…

“Rumbell…ptrrr…splat!”

Valentine's Day Game My Love My Valentine - Rival's Agent - Crappigeo the Pigeon.

Away from the din of the city, he heard it loud and clear, and felt sadness well up inside him. He had been ousted from the pigeon-community that lived on the high-rise.

He was thrown out because his presence had become a threat to the survival of the entire community, and unfortunately, the reasons were completely beyond his control. When he was summoned by the Grand-old pigeon, he had absolutely no clue of what was about to come.

“You make five times the guano that a normal pigeon does, and with absolutely no civic sense, you crap anywhere, anytime. Do you remember where you crapped the last time?”

Crappigeo tried to recall, but he couldn’t. Crapping was almost as natural for him as…well, breathing. But he knew that explaining that to this ancient bird won’t help his cause, and so he stayed silent.

“You don’t even remember, do you? It was when this young lady had just returned from a parlor with a $400 hair-do. Now, do you remember what you did? And she had spent all that money on herself, because she was going on a special date and she was expecting her beau to propose! The daughter of the richest man in this apartment-complex didn’t just call-off her date, she even complained to her dad about what you did. And we’ve come to know that her father has resolved to get rid of every bit of gray feather in this place, if it ever happened again, to anyone.”

And so Crappigeo had to leave. Odds were stacked so completely and thoroughly against him, that staying back was not an option anymore. It was the best thing that he could do for the community and for himself.

“Rummbell, ptrrr, splat!” It happened again.

A tear tumbled out of the corner of his eye. His was a hopeless case. Away from his family, away from the secure life he knew, he was stranded, and from the looks of it, he was stranded forever, and all because of that silly girl who was in love with some creep!

Crappigeo suddenly saw red. His self-pity turned in an explosion of anger towards everyone who was in love, because it was love that brought him to this piteous state.

“Rummbell, ptrrrrrrr, splatttt!”

Crappigeo looked down and saw that he had crapped on what looked like an advertisement.
He craned his neck and tried to read, “Part Time Position…” It appeared to be a position advertised for birds, and Crappigeo needed something to do, something that would divert his thoughts elsewhere, so he flew down to get a better look.

The advertisement read:

Part Time Position
Wanted a Strong Bird
who can Crap at will!
Salary no bar for the right candidate!
Interested?
Fly-in for an Interview between 8 AM and 5 PM.

So Crappigeo flew in and took the test. While he couldn’t really crap at will, he could crap enough to beat every other bird, and so, he obviously got the job.

It’s quite possible that you know who recruited him. Your Rival in “My Love My Valentine” the Love Game App with 54 thrilling levels filled with love, romance, envy, action, and adventure. Crappigeo loves every bit of his revenge on the lovers of the world, and among all of your rival’s agents, he the loyalest of all.

Paul McCartney’s My Valentine – a song of love, a work of art.

No quest for love-songs can be complete without Paul McCartney’s My Valentine. It’s one of the most beautiful love songs that’ve ever been written and sung. If this music could cast an impression on me, someone who has absolutely no understanding of music, it could make the stoniest of hearts feel the joy of love.

What if it rained?
We didn’t care,
She said that someday soon,
the sun was going to shine.
And she was right,
this love of mine,
My Valentine.

As days and nights,
would pass me by,
I’d tell myself that I was waiting for a sign.
Then she appeared,
her love so fine,
My Valentine.

And I will love her for life,
And I will never let a day go by,
without remembering the reasons why.
she makes me certain,
that I can fly.

And so I do,
without a care,
I know that someday soon the sun is going to shine,
And she’ll be there.
This love of mine,
My Valentine.

What if it rained?
We didn’t care.
She said that someday soon,
the sun was gonna shine.
And she was right,
This love of mine,
My Valentine.

I wrote these down as I listened to the song. Another place where you can find the lyrics (perhaps more accurate too,) is http://www.metrolyrics.com/my-valentine-lyrics-paul-mccartney.html
