It’s funny how noticeably single one can feel this time of year. Sure, Valentine’s Day is only a Hallmark holiday, designed to sell chocolates, flowers, and greeting cards, but when those sweet nothings don’t show up at your desk for all of your coworkers to see it’s easy to feel left out of something pretty cool. Maybe you don’t want a boyfriend—they’re whiny, forget to call when they’re late, drink all the milk, and leave their dirty socks all over the apartment. Still, cozying up on the couch with one on a random Thursday night is pretty nice. (Michael K. Farrell, that nice part is about you. xo)
Back in my free agent days, I’d spend V-Day with two guys who loved my thighs, Ben and Jerry’s—something I once even admitted to in a national fitness publication. Perhaps buying myself a new gym outfit would have been more productive and lasting, but the adidas Boyfriend collection didn’t exist back then, so the thought never came to mind.
The line seems like the perfect stand in for a real man. Easy going, yet dependable (the stripe tank offers a relaxed fit and is made of moisture-wicking fabric), flexible and supportive (those three-quarter tights would really move with you), and super cuddly (just looking at the training pants makes me want to snuggle).
I haven’t tried the line out myself, but I can’t wait to get my hands on that Boyfriend Crew—it looks so comfy!
What are your V-Day plans? Anyone going on a romantic run?
Note: I wasn’t paid, nor did I receive compensation of any kind to write this post. I just thought the line was cool and you’d like to learn about it.
