Revised from the original post of February 13, 2013
Once upon a time you despised Valentine’s Day. All the red, the roses, the chocolate, the restaurant reservations.
The maribou handcuffs.
It was absolutely ridonkulous.
Then you met HIM (your significant other, not Jesus), and it all changed. You couldn’t wait for the big day. Instead of envying or scorning the couples eating those overpriced prix fixe meals at restaurants, you wisely and naughtily planned evenings in.
But once the kids came, it turned into something else altogether. A day where you sprinted all over town buying cupcakes, candy and/or cards for every child in the class, and then felt a strong urge to bust out your best Karaoke version of "You've Lost That Loving Feeling."
It can be so hard to keep the heat in Valentine’s Day, don't you think? Take this quiz and see if you and your partner are a bonfire of passion, a slow burn, or more like a wet blanket and a match.
