It's that time of year again...

Posted February 13th, 2010 at 02:17 PM by slls81

Hey guys,

Since I’ve got a blog now, I thought I may as well use it...

So it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow... but you probably knew that already.

Now I don’t know about you guys, but I for one am not a fan of this holiday. Not because I am single, jaded and bitter (well I am single, but that’s beside the point ), but because the whole day just doesn't make sense to me.

People tell me that Valentine’s Day is about being romantic and showing your partner how much you love them, but I don’t buy that. At least five guys I know who are in relationships have done exactly the same thing: Flowers and Chocolates. I’m sorry, but I don’t see how producing an unbelievably clichéd gift is romantic. Especially considering that without the social pressures attached to Valentine’s Day, they almost certainly wouldn’t have bought the gift in the first place.

I think that by having a day that necessitates romance, it makes being romantic that much more difficult. Little things that on any other day of the year would be considered romantic now become the norm. I think buying someone a gift out of blue shows you care far more than doing it on Valentine's Day, when every other guy in the world is doing the same.

I don’t know maybe it’s just me... What do you guys think of Valentine’s Day? Love it? Hate it? Don’t really care? Let me know.

Anyway rant over

‘Til next time
Bye guys

    I don't particularly care. And if I did have someone to enjoy the day with, flowers and chocolate are two things I would never give them as a Valentine's gift.

    Yah, dat's da troof roight dere.

    Meowth aside, I get you. I am also single, jaded and bitter (not really - just single), and I think it's a waste of time. You know, it's just so same old, same old, that it's not special any more.

    Screw Valentine's Day. It's a consumer holiday made by stores to make more money. Stupid economy >.>
