Is Valentine's Day That Serious???


Romance is expected when two individuals that love each other are in a relationship. So why is it a national day set aside to express your love for your significant other. Valentine's Day can be viewed by some as necessary, but by others as a forced holiday. There is a group of folks that would tell you that Valentine's Day is needed.  The anticipation of something special being done by your man or your lady is a emotion difficult to over look. The mood is set with candle lights in a dim setting. A trail of roses leading you to your destination of love. The kissing - hugging - holding of hands and the mushy talk commences. The drinking of wine and devouring of chocolate can only lead to the bedroom when the time is right. Who wouldn't want a night like this lol??? Valentine's Day is the one day out of the year, where it is universally accepted to profess your love to someone.

Others would argue that Valentine's Day is not necessary, because one day can't amount to the love shown 364 days out of the year. The feeling is, I get or express this kind of love and affection throughout the year, so what makes Valentine's Day any different or special. Should I go out and spend money because everyone else is wrapped up in a day created to help "boost the economy." Another argument is men feel like Valentine's Day is another day to drop more cash on a female. Also feeling like the day is more geared toward women to enjoy than men. Guys aren't really looking forward to roses, teddy bears and chocolate from a heart shaped box. lol

Valentine's Day shouldn't be held to the same standard as: Christmas, Birthdays, Mothers or Fathers day. The aforementioned days hold more weight than Valentines's Day when it comes to expressing your love and appreciation for a loved one. On February 14th no one should be upset if they didn't get more than the usual from your significant other, as this day should be left optional... Im just saying!!! Let us know your opinion on this matter.

  1. I agree with the notion that the day should be left optional. If you not already showing your partner love youre not handling your business.

  2. Valentines Day is definitely a day for females. A guy is just doing whatever it takes to get laid on Feb 14th

  3. It is so funny that you posted this bc, I just had a guy ask me what I was doing on valantines day (i'm a single female) So I went on to say it was a corporate holiday and what not, and he got really offended and emotional!! I also said, which is true, that Valentines came about because St. Valentine, went around killing people in the name of christianity! So he flips and says "can't we have one day to remember there is still love left in the world??" So my point is, its just not the women getting into a fuss over it, yes if i'm in a relationship its fun to do something special,but otherwise I see it as a way for businesses to make a crap load of money, while single people are left feeling like crap ! !

  5. Interesting comment AB...

    As I continue to learn...its another day for us men to strengthen our relationship! Why not spend this time with your partner...but just make it clear to your partner that it must be time well spent and within the limitations of your finances (if there are any limitations at least)!

  6. This article had me think back to the women I work with that say they would be upset if they didn't receive anything from their spouses on V day. I asked why and they looked at me like I had 3 heads. In my relationship we always make sure we say I love u, go on dates, kiss, hold hands, etc. So I would be a fool to be upset over this one day that everyone else celebrates when my fiance and I do year round. I learned from my experience that the men that go above and beyond on Valentine's Day don't really do things with their lady all year round. It's crazy how the women are so overjoyed for this one day.
