Art of the Love Note Lost on Teenage Boys

Georgia Briskey, Sports Editor

It’s no question that girls and boys disagree on just about everything. On Valentine’s Day especially, girls and boys have entirely different perceptions of what love is. Girls expect boys to pour their hearts out to them, while boys are still confused as to what a girl is. In love notes, girls expect a Cyrano de Bergerac, while a boy can barely formulate a sentence. Nonetheless, Mirador has written up what a girl would want her love note to say, and what a boy would actually write to her. 

What a girl wants:

Dear The Most Beautiful Girl In the World,

Since the day I laid eyes on you in sixth grade, I knew it was love at first sight. Your shiny hair, sweet smile and endearing laugh were enough to send me head over heels in love with you. I remember when I dropped my pencil in English last year and we both reached down to pick it up. I instantly knew how thoughtful you were and how I could see us spending the rest of our lives together. I think about you all day, everyday, and wish I had the bravery to say this all to you in person. I love you, I love you, I love you. There is no one as perfect as you and I hope you feel the same love for me as I feel towards you. Be my Valentine?

Love, Boy of Dreams

P.S. I hope you enjoy the flowers, chocolate, teddy bear, balloons, Tiffany’s necklace and perfume.


What a girl gets:

Dear Attractive Girl in my Math Class,

Hey, I um don’t really know what to say in these kinds of things, but Happy Valentine’s Day. You’re pretty cool I guess. I remember when I dropped my pencil in English last year and we both went down to pick it up. That was so awkward but cool at the same time. Let’s hang sometime.

Peace, Clueless Teenage Boy

P.S. Are we each other’s Valentines now?
