For those of you who don't have a sad working knowledge of either Romantic poetry or Judeo-Christian feast days, let us be the first to tell you that tonight is the Eve of St. Agnes.
Basically, if you're a single lady wondering how your non-existent storybook love life will work out - listen up. On this night, before the day dedicated to the patron saint of virgins, should a woman perform a certain set of rituals, it is said that her future husband shall appear to her in a dream.
Yeah. We know. Like regardless of what you believe - get on that shit.
So what do you need to do? First, you have to go to sleep without any dinner. And honestly, like, so not the worst thing that could happen for your diet.
Second, instead of jumping into your abominable, to be worn indoors-only sweats, you must undress completely, walk backwards to your bed while looking to the heavens (AKA ceiling), while careful not to look behind you.
Next, lie on your nude self on your bed, hands under your pillow.
Of course, if your love life is super complicated and Keatsian, maybe expect some hijinks. Otherwise, settle in for a good night's sleep and prepare to meet your dream man.
