February 14. The day many dread and few look forward too. Everything red, hearts, cupids and roses everywhere. A day focused about love. Sounds nice and dandy enough? So why the V-Day hate? I think it could maybe be summed up in one word….PRESSURE. Pressure on the couples to make sure they keep their other half happy [and chicks lets not deny our standerds, well they are a bit high most of the time] and pressure on the single folk to still keep their self-love up even though we all know it’s shitty to see happy lovey-dovey couples. [Don’t lie to yourself].
Lets not even start on how commercialised Valentines Day is. Stores cash in on anything they can and Valentines Day is like Jackpot time. Type Valentines Day into google and the top search is “Valentines Day specials”. $403 million is spent just on Flowers in USA. Did anyone forget the recession? Starving children? Dying oceans? Presidential birthday parties? Flowers die!!!
Anyways…..If Valentines day truley makes you happy then awesome, to each his own. Happy Monday y’all and have an awesome week…I gotta go finish packing. xoxo
