Invented by the Monsanto of the affection industry, Hallmark, it's like all nefarious shadowy presences: its influence is traceless and ubiquitous.There are going to be dangling pink streamers in storefronts and lots advertisements for chocolate and necklaces that are improbably shaped into hearts.Ish encourages erring on the side of caution so you don’t send the wrong message. “You don’t want to send the wrong message that could change the dynamics of what you have.It’s a balancing act.” For example, instead of getting your casual hook-up a teddy bear holding a heart that says, “I love you,” give your hook-up some of his or her favorite candy or a funny card.
