Valentine Phobia

Love is perhaps the only phenomenon which strikes almost everyone on earth but could not be explained by anybody till date. “…Love is not love/Which alters when it alteration finds,/Or Bends with the remover to remove./O, no! It is an ever-fixed mark,/That looks on tempests and is never shaken./It is the star to every wandering bark, whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.”, says the famous poet and dramatist, William Shakespeare. Taking the first step of a relationship is often tougher than making the whole relation work. The fear of proposing to your loved one is the most difficult stage of love-making.
