When Harry Never 'Met' Sally...

You are mushy if you celebrate your anniversary over a candlelight dinner at an expensive place…
You are romantic if you celebrate surviving another year together over daal-tadka at the roadside dhaba where you had your first date…

You are mushy if you like exotic vacations at luxury resorts…
You are romantic if you like getting drenched in the monsoon on an impromptu off-season trip to Goa…

You are mushy if you surprise your spouse on her birthday with a lavish party, lots of gifts, 100 guests, 200 balloons and 400 “cute” pics on FB…
You are romantic if you show up at his/her door at midnight, light a candle on a single pastry and take off together somewhere randomly…

You are mushy if you tell someone you love her after you dedicate (and sing) “Lady in Red’ at a Karaoke Bar…
You are romantic if you tell someone you love her when she is reading The Economic Times, with specs firmly on her nose, oiled hair and bushy eyebrows…

You are mushy if you propose on Valentine’s Day with 100 red roses to signify that you would like to spend the next 100 years of your life with her…
You are romantic if you propose when both of you are drunk and in pajamas, when she is least expecting it…

But you are her best friend if you can make her laugh year after year after year...

""You are romantic if you propose when both of you are drunk and in pajamas, when she is least expecting it…""

The part that i liked the most.
But, what if the guy who proposed forgot about it the next morning?

Oh this was such a relief. :) I am romantic, my husband is romantic. And well, we are best friends too I guess. So yay, you have done my marriage a really big favour :P

Again, I LOVED it!
