Valentine’s Day Dilemma

Here’s my Valentine’s day dilemma. Please tell me what you think.

I’ve been on three dates with a woman whom I’m at least moderately interested in. There’s nothing going on between us – it could wind up being a friendship or something else. Any of those are fine; I’m looking for something serious and am fine going slow. I’ve asked her out to a few things and she’s asked me out to a few too. I do have the sense that she might be involved with someone but the subject hasn’t come up yet and it’s not something I feel the need to approach just yet.

A band I love is playing on Thursday night. I’d like to ask her to go. But Thursday is Valentine’s day, and things are not at a point where I would be looking to ask her out just because it’s Valentine’s day. So do I mention Valentine’s day in the invitation or just ignore it? The only thing I’m concerned about here is that she forgets it’s Valentines day, says yes, and then realizes it and feels trapped into it. So what to do?

Wow. Just read this back and am amazed at how wimpy it sounds. For you married people, maybe it’ll remind you of neurotic it can be to be single and make you oh-so-much-more grateful for your marriages.

Oh. When I asked John if this was appropriate to post here, he said yes, but said make it entertaining. I’m not sure if this was entertaining enough. So here’s my unrelated favorite kid’s joke:

Q: What did the fish say when he swam into a wall?

A: Dam!
