The Dreaded Valentines Day

Yes, it’s Valentines Day everyone. That day that, if you’re single, reminds you of that, and rubs everyone else’s successful relationships in your face. I try to ignore it, but when you’re talking about an almost exclusively commercial tradition like Valentines Day, where every single shops reminds you of the impending day for weeks before, it is hard to do this. You might argue that I’m just jealous – and you’re probably right. But can you blame me?

There are other issues I have about Valentines Day, besides being incredibly depressing for single people. It’s to do with the principle of the day, which is supposedly about love. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a noble idea, but it’s still silly and pointless. You see, the way I see it is that if you truly loved somebody, you shouldn’t need a special day to show it, but would show it everyday, give them surprised presents e.t.c every so often anyway, to keep the relationship exciting and different.

What a fantastic day. Not.

    Yeah, I feel like Valentine’s Day isn’t about showing the person you love that you love them, its about showing the world how much effort you put forth so that they know you love this person.

    stupid. fun, but stupid.
