Yay! It’s Valentine’s Day! I’m a girl and I absolutely demand flowers and a friggen heart-shaped box of weird assorted chocolates that all taste funny! Oh, and don’t forget the I LOVE YOU balloon that’s eight times the size of my head.
Guy does this for lady and he’ll get some sexy benefits later. It’s like the one night of the year where you have to pay your girlfriend/significant other in your life for a little somethin’ somethin’.
I’ve been hearing all about Singles Awareness Day too, and just stop it. Yes that’s what it is and it sucks, we’ve all been there. It’s one day. Letting everyone know about doesn’t do much good either. If it makes you feel any better, the chocolates will be gone within a day, the balloon will deflate, and the flowers will die in a week or two.
The people with Valentines get annoyed with the singles, and the singles get annoyed with the couples. Everyone, just go to CVS tomorrow and buy all the chocolates now on sale so they don’t have to trash their overabundance of candy. Because we all know it by now. Valentine’s Day is a scam for Hallmark and local restaurants to make some extra cash. It’s like a mini economy boost for the month of February. That’s it!
I did Valentine’s Day gifts like, two weeks ago because the actual day doesn’t mean anything. I spent my money on him because I wanted to, and vice versa. It wasn’t totally done out of obligation. We had a home cooked dinner Sunday night because the day itself doesn’t entirely matter. Our dinner included red Kool-aid bursts because it was a red drink and they taste good. And they were cheap. Keepin’ it real.
Point is, it’s just another day in the year. It’s an opportunity for couples to do a little something extra for one another without having to say why or be accused that they’re only being nice because they want something. Doing a little something extra every now and then never hurt a relationship in my opinion and letting someone else know you care shouldn’t only be done once a year. I don’t mean go buy flowers every week or make sure you purchase an unnecessary item to put a smile on his or her face. Those things should be done because you want to, not because you’re obligated to do so on February 14th.
So Happy Valentine’s Day to everybody; all of my family and friends and to anyone who feels lonely. And Happy Lover’s Day to Boyfriend.
