I know that getting struck by Cupid’s arrow may very well take your breath away and make your heart go pitter-patter this Valentine’s Day. After all, love is what makes the world go around. I get it! I love everything about LOVE. Just be aware that there is a thing out there called “Deceptive affection” which means that an individual in a romantic relationship chooses to express affection on this day that he or she does not actually feel. As a life coach, I read examples of this kind of deception which include lying about one’s own feelings about a partner and expressing affection instead of being 100% truthful. Apparently, using physical affection to lie appears to be a regular activity in romantic relationships that most people don’t seem to mind… especially on Valentine’s Day.
In fact, according to my research on this type of behavior, deceptive affection might actually help maintain a relationship. Don’t trip! Haven’t we all heard at one point in our life a person say “I’d rather hear a lie than to deal with the truth.” Or “if loving you is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.” Unfortunately, research also suggest that people who have been unlucky in love during this day allocated for lovers are said to suffer from a “Broken heart.” A broken heart is an actual medical condition known as “Broken Heart Syndrome.” Wow..Really! To that I say, Cupid take your arrow and shoot it up your own Valentines Day. Boom!
