Ask The Eye, Speaking With Your Heart On Valentines Day

February 20, 2012

Dear Eye View

My husband of 24 years (the last 2.5 years of which he’s been involved in an affair with his crush from high school) has been living across town since early fall, but we continue to see each other every day, mostly so he can visit with our 15- and 17-year-old kids (who don’t know about the affair and expect us to patch things up). We normally do some sort of nominal thing with the kids for Valentine’s Day, and he suggested we take them to a new frozen yogurt shop. I agreed at first, but now I can’t stomach the thought of seeing him at all tomorrow. I don’t want to hurt the kids, but I’m thinking of faking being sick, so they’ll have to go with just him. Any alternative suggestions

Dear Fed Up

I understand your concern. Your kids are old enough to see through your unconvincing  silly illusion. The best thing is to tell them what is going on and see an attorney . But if you decide to go on with one more tired attempt,  I would suggest taking along a box of candy hearts for your husband. Be sure to speak with your heart. Hope this helps..

Eye View Restaurant Guide To Men On Valentines Day

February 14, 2011

 In selecting a Valentines Day dinner remember:

French restaurants may seem romantic, but often they upstage you with a meal that revolves around an exotic menu and wine list instead of you  having a good time.

Chinese and other Asian restaurants are either pushy, crowded, and frantic or completely empty, ensuring you’ll be the only ones in the whole place.

  Mexican restaurants can be extremely amiable but mark you as a cheapskate. The music usually sucks, but after a few fast-acting margaritas, neither you nor your date will be complaining.

 Steakhouses tend to be meat markets.  Who wants to compete with the crowds of guys at the bar who can’t wait for you to go to the men’s room so they can hit on your girl?

 Sushi, assuming she likes it, is very good for a casual date, even a little sexy because it’s adventurous and marks you as something of a sophisticate.

 Italian restaurants, by and large, are your best bet. The staff is affable, they know how to greet a beautiful girl, and most important of all they are dimly lite. The rest of the evening is your call…
