You either love it. Or you hate it.
Personally, I hate it. But we'll get into that later.
Because although I hate Valentine's Day, what I truly hate. Are the people who LOVE to HATE Valentine's Day.
You know. The people that are ALMOST as annoying as the gushy one's who won't shut up about how much sweet stuff their significant other is doing for them.
Here's my issue with Valentine's Day. Yes it's a commercial whore of a holiday. I get it. That's not my big beef.
My big beef is the people that go to elaborate extremes for V-Day and use it as an opportunity to get a clean slate for all the crap they've done during the year.
I'm sorry but over priced roses, doesn't fix a shitty relationship.
And honestly, the fact that you only think to do stuff like this on Valentine's Day makes me question if there is any real sincerity to the actions. I mean are you buying your girlfriend flowers because she deserves a nice treat or are you doing it because it's what is socially expected of you?
I could go on and on but then I'd become one of the people that annoy everyone with how vocally anti V-Day they are.
I get it. Valentine's Day is shit.
You're single. You feel like this is the one day a year along with New Years Eve that is created just to make you feel shitty about your single status.
I GET IT.
But honestly? Shut up about it. Because with all your bitching and ranting about how horrible V-Day is, all anyone is thinking is that you're bitter. You could have very legitimate views on V-Day but if you're single and ranting about it, all anyone is thinking is that it's a smoke screen to cover up how much you secretly want flowers.
Trust me. I get it. I'm single too remember?
So trust me when I say that ranting isn't doing you any favours.
That in mind. Enjoy it. It's a cheesy holiday but if you get flowers of a Valentine from a loved one. Enjoy it and giggle inside like the 13 year old girl we all secretly are.
Hugs and Kisses,
