As you may or may not know, I’m not really a sucker for valentines… So I’m lucky I have awesome friends who are – one of which wrote this gorgeous post for me today. Happy Valentines day!
This sweet post was written by the lovely Melanie Falvey from www.theperfectbackdrop.com
Why you should be having an affair at the office – and it’s not what you think.
Hi , my name is Drop, Back-drop and we have never been introduced properly.
I have been following you for some time, (not in a scary way!) and I’ve become truly interested in in your business.
I have seen you grow and embrace new platforms as they became popular. Remember your first Periscope? What ever happened to Blab when you were just getting the hang of it?
The wonders of Facebook live…so many possibilities!
Even courses are on your road map now, maybe not immediately but you have seen others doing it, so why not you?
Yes, I admire and respect you for keeping up, it´s not easy these days, is it?
We actually met on your first on line appearance, you probably don´t remember, but I was there, boy, was I there! In fact, I have never, ever missed one of your videos, not once, however, I didn´t feel my best, you know, sometimes you know you can do better and every time I happened to watch you, I wasn´t 100% there, sorry about that!
The truth is every single time you go online I’m watching- I’m actually behind you but as I said before, not in a scary way.
You hone your craft. You work so hard to give the very best to your audience! And there I am, not feeling it. My fault, not yours.
The thing is, you don’t seem to be paying attention to me and that kind of hurts, you know? But as I said before, it´s none of your fault, we have never been introduced.
However, I cannot help it but feel sad…
I know we would be such a good match, in fact, we were made for each other. True love.
Yes, that might sound a bit old fashioned and even dramatic but it’s the honest truth.
I was actually born to be with you! And as long as you are online I want to be with you.
So, do you think you could give me a chance? Maybe we could just get to know each other?
Right, I hear you, you know nothing about me. How can you trust me?
I do know some of your friends, you could ask them! They all love me (sorry, I am not conceited, I am just being plain honest- it is the basis of any strong relationship).
I can assure you my intentions are the best, even your dad would approve of me.
I am ever so loyal.
I will do everything that’s in my hand to make you shine.
I am flexible and adaptable, that´s good right?
And I promise to:
Help you and support you.
I will complete you , that´s a promise. That´s why they call it your “better-half”, right?
I will be with you every step of the way, isn’t that what a lover should do?
I will never, ever miss one of your broadcasts. First one there, last one to leave.
And in return…
All I ask is one thing… pleeeease?
Pay a little attention to me, will you? At least at the beginning. I am rather independent you know, but at the beginning I would like you to look at me, to think of me (not all the time, obviously, but…), I would like you to buy me something pretty every now and again (if you can afford it), or make it yourself!. I’m not asking for a diamond ring but maybe you could make me look prettier.
I would be very grateful!
And here´s where I get a little dramatic again, just so you know:
My reason for living is to support you and every single word you say ,to make you shine and to make your audience adore you.
I exist only to let your expertise be enhanced! My main reason is to make your story more enticing and captivating!
I would be happy with that.
I am not asking for more.
So, do you think you can give me a chance?
Shall we go on a date?
Let’s try it, just the once.
If you don’t like me or if you have any complaints; we will part good friends.
I will be sad thinking what could have been but, hey, that´s life!
But I have a feeling you will soon fall madly in love with me…
