Today, my boyfriend gave me the painting he had been working on. It was a heart with wings, my name, and the date we started dating. We have been dating for almost a year and a half. He misspelled my name. FML

I would think being in a decently lengthy relationship with someone whose name is spelt many ways, their version would be the 'knee-jerk reaction' of how to spell it though.
But what you said could be very possible.

My first Valentine's Day with my bf he made a card and spelt it 'Valenes'. It's not that he can't spell it, it's just that he'd been concentrating so hard drawing the letters he thought he was on the second 'n' rather than the first. So I could possibly see how this could happen, depending on the name.

I agree 5, and people make silly mistakes all the time! You should at least feel like a lucky girl that he put effort and work into something specifically for you, even if it isn't perfect.

It's the thought that counts, isn't it? I can't imagine something like a painting was an afterthought, he must have spent plenty of time on it just for you.

I wouldn't say that. Maybe when he took a step back to admire his masterpiece he realized he spelled her name wrong and it was too late to fix it. It doesn't necessarily mean he doesn't care for her.

honestly, I would've just been happy that he made all that effort just for me. I'm sure it was a little spelling mistake anyway, it'snot like he wrote a completely different name.


Number dyslexia is called dyscalcula. I have both dyslexia and dyscalcula. It's only classified as such though if it causes impairment. I keep auto correct turned on with my phone to help, but handwriting? It's hard. Math is even worse. Anything past grade two math I have to do painfully slow or I switch numbers around and get it wrong.
