being alone/single on Valentine's day doesn't make you any less lonely on every other day >> same with being in a relationship. so, it's kind of a "whatever" day for me. besides, where i come from, we celebrate it as Friendship Day!
I think you should have added a neutral one, because i don't do much on Valentines day (though i do like to by a bunch a cheap candy and eat it all at once while watching Harry Potter) I am single, but i am not sad about it.
I'm no romantic, but I also don't get all the negativity by single people who complain that it's rubbing it in, that it's too commercial, that you don't need a day to tell someone you love them. Well, if you were happy being single, people parading around wouldn't faze you, right? And if you're not happy, well, they didn't get their dates by sitting around. Every holiday is commercial, Is that so bad? Chocolate roses, those icky message hearts that end up eaten anyway, the tv-character valentines they give out in elementary school, raiding your little sibling's bag of candy they bring home. Commercial things catch on because thye're fun, and worth the money. And, you don't need a day to celebrate someone's life, or practice your preferred religion, or celebrate the year, or the season, or an important historical figure. But we have holidays, because we can't go all out every day.
So I suppose I'm apathetic. I'm not a sourpuss, but you wouldn't see me with a heart-shaped box of chocolates and a stuffed puppy for my love nugget.
where's the "meh" choice? I don't feel tragic about it, because that's making it important, and I don't feel lovey-excited about it because that's making it important. Really, I don't get why a fertility holiday marked by celebrating chocolate and heart shapes and spending more money than you have is a big deal to anyone. If you don't show your love every day, than showing it on just one day is pretty worthless. imho.
I have a boyfriend, but even though I'm looking forward to go out with him on that day, I'm trying not to expect too much- Most ppl feel pressured about it and end up making mistakes (I've lived it myself and also other friends who have partners), so I'd rather not flash ahead too much
At my school, there was a form that you have to fill out what your soulmate will be and I dared myself to fill it out just for once. I normally don't care about finding the perfect guy, but I think it's time that I need a bf anyway.
First, valentines day is a cheap marketing trick invented by florists to sell flowers. A day where you need to be reminded to give attention to your lover is a sad day.
Second, I CHOSE to be forever alone. I don't have the time to be woo someone. I have art, my studying, my work, and hobbies to do. Oh and DA. That's more than enough to fill every waking hour of my life.
In one of those dreaded long distance relationships. Don't really care for Valentine's Day either way because if you have to have a day to remind you to be affectionate toward the people you love, you're doing it wrong.
That said, I annually celebrate a greater holiday available to lover and forever alone guy alike: Half-Price Candy Day.
