Feliz Día de San Valentín

Young ladies doubt themselves too much. Looking back I know I did.

Here is Kizzy from Lips Touch Three Times by Laini Taylor:

"They leaned against the locker and watched the new boy out of sight. Just as he rounded the far corner with Saint Pock Mark, he glanced back over his shoulder. A thrill went through Kizzy. She imagined for a second that his eyes had silvered like a cat's. And she imagine he had looked right at her. She blushed instantly, even though she was sure she was wrong. Boy's eyes didn't find her in a crowd. Boy's eyes didn't even find when there was no one around. They sort of glanced over or fixed on some fascinating object in the distance."

This Valentine believe that somebody is looking at you in admiration.

Ah, Carmen, what wonderful advice! I will indeed try to do just that. Thank you for a suggestion we (or at least I) could benefit from each day of the year.
