It's Valentine's Day

6:09 PM |

...and?


We'll it's another year and another Valentine's Day. What makes this day so special? I just don't see what the big deal is. And don't get me wrong. I'm not approaching this from a hater standpoint. I just honestly don't...get....what the big deal is. I mean people get in fights and break up over what is or is not done on this day and I just really don't see why it's so serious.

I think it's interesting how people who love this day turn their noses up at those who could care less about this day. But those are the same people who look at you blankly when you ask them what's so special about Valentine's Day. Let's just be honest, most of you guys will accept gas station roses on this day and gush about how great he is, but if he showed up on your door on a Wednesday with that same brown rose you'd be singing a different story. Give me a break.

Unless this day is an important day for your relationship (outside of it just being Valentine's Day), there is no reason for this day to be any more special than the next. Your significant other should be making you feel like you're their Valentine almost every day. You should be doing things every other day of the year to let the one you love know you think they're special. Like one of my students said, if you gotta go all out on Valentine's Day and you're not doing anything any of the other days, then you're doing something wrong (a very rough paraphrase).

I bet this statement would make whatever woman stop all the gushing. Lol. I simply refer to V-Day as Sex Day, basically.
