Ah, Valentine’s Day. Love it or hate it, it comes round every year bringing a multitude of memoires in its wake. Especially those teenage years. Desperately wanting to get it right – whether you’ve been dating a day, a week or, a whole month! Not wanting to overdo it and seem too keen and but worried they won’t think you care enough.

Then there was the time you were single and picking out a card for your latest crush, secretly hoping that they would send you one too. When the post finally hit the floor wondering if that card was from them, the cute guy next door, or just another early birthday card! ;) Sooooooooo good we just have iMessenger now!
