I HATE VALENTINE'S DAY


Valentine’s Day. The time of year when everything is painted in pink and red and people frantically run out to buy their significant other roses, chocolates, Hallmark cards, stuffed animals, sparkly jewelry, lingerie and book dinner reservations.

It's too forced. It puts pressure on people, especially men, to go out and useless junk. A random, thoughtful act or sentimental gift is so much sexier, than any of that shit in the picture above.

My ideal Valentine’s Day, pretending like I had a boyfriend ha, would be cooking dinner together, eating dessert and cuddling on the couch while watching a movie and than having awesome sex.

I wouldn't feed into the corporate greed and spend my money on stupid gifts and cheap candy that's filled with chemicals.

  1. AGD: It doesn't have to be exclusively a romantic love -- so if you don't have a special someone to celebrate with, you can always express love to your family and friends. That's what I do for my nieces and mom. You can be jaded by the holiday or go along and show someone some affection who might not be getting any but surely will appreciate the gesture.

  2. Totally true! Valentine's Day is so over-commercialised.

    Me and my bf don't do anything special that day, the other 364 days our as important as the 14th. A little unexpected attention does so much more!

    Your idea of valentine though... would make me feel like I was in heaven ;-)
