I don’t get why people think Valentine’s Day is so special. I think it’s kinda dumb. And I think the people who follow the Valentine’s ‘traditions’ are even more stupid. It’s funny when I hear girls saying things like, ‘Oh you know Valentine’s is coming up, my boyfriend better get me something nice.’ or ‘I expect flowers and a teddy bear.’ or whatever. That’s so sad, and kinda humorous actually. And then the media is just ridiculous about it too. Saying ‘It’s the one day to show that special someone just how much you care.’ What the hell kind of shit is that? What about all the other days of the year? Now there’s nothing wrong with showing your sugahh some sugahh, but you should do it because you WANT to , not because a stupid holiday says you’re supposed to. All Valentine’s does is place added pressure on people to please one another, making them feel like they have to go out and buy something and if they don’t it’ll make them a bad partner. It’s ridiculous. There should never be one day out of the year ‘reserved’ to make it necessary to show your love and affection towards another person. If you truly love a person why not show it year round? And I don’t mean going out and buying flowers, chocolate, teddy bears, and jewelry everyday, but there’s little things you can do everyday to show someone you love them.
Like my mother always says, ‘Everyday is Valentine’s Day for me.’ She tells me all the time how my dad tells her how much he loves her and he makes her feel special everyday. And Valentine’s is no different for them. He treats her the same as he does every other day, with the exception of a card maybe. And that’s the way it should be.
I honestly feel bad for all the guys out there who have a high maintenance girlfriend who expects all that shit. I see no point in it. If you know your partner loves you, then why do they have to go out and buy things to prove it?
Anyways, this is just my opinion on the matter. Maybe it’s just cause I was raised differently and have a perfect example at home of how a relationship and love should be. It shouldn’t be about the gifts or anything materialistic. It should simply be about the bond you two share together and the love you have for one another. That alone should be enough for both of you.
How do you feel about Valentine’s Day?

I agree with you but I do like Valentine’s day. It’s not about what you get its about who you got and the love you have. Sure, you should express your feelings daily, but not everyone does, people don’t take the time to stop and think about it. I don’t look at it as a day to celebrate relationships and get gifts or mope around because you’re single. It’s a day to celebrate love, in general. A very powerful emotion.
