At my time, within one hour it’s Valentine’s Day. Something we supposedly all think differently about.
I personally don’t like it too much, though I normally celebrate it anyway ^^
But actually it’s got too many disadvantages in my opinion. The singles are depressed, the lovers feel in need to give their partner something.
Though you can also think of it as an opportunity to celebrate your love. But isn’t any other day just as appropriate to do so?
Aren’t you much more happier if your loved one brings some flowers along on a very normal day? And not when you expect him to?
That’s what I told my boyfriend because he wanted to get up early in the morning to get me some flowers. So I told him I’d be much more happier to have him stay in bed instead of getting some flowers I knew I’d get. He could me get them any other day just as well, couldn’t he? Still I got him some small present. But this was something I saw in the shop and would have bought anyway, no matter whether Valentine’s Day was knocking on the door or not.
But as said, you can always see the good side. You can spend a beautiful day together, just taking the opportunity. The lonely ones can take it as well, asking those they’ve layed their eyes on out or give them a surprise.
As a woman I can definitely confirm that, if you’re single you are simply WAITING to get somethin at this oh-so-special-day.
So, take the opportunity men, if simply to make somebody smile on this day!
Summarized: Share the love, take the opportunity! And this doesn’t mean Valentine’s Day only. But every day.
Have some love =)
