I love it. I always have, even before I started dating. I use it as an excuse to show my love and appreciation for family and friends in fun ways- it's not just about romance for me.
Many people think Valentine's day is just a Hallmark holiday that was invented to encourage consumerism. But it actually isn't. Long ago, a Roman emperor banned the marriage of soldiers because he believed it would cause them to fight more bravely. St. Valentine married soldiers in secret, and so became known as a friend to lovers. He was caught and imprisoned. While he was in prison, his supporters slipped notes to him, which is how the tradition of Valentine cards got started. He was executed on February 14th.3

It never bothered me. There are some perks to the holiday, maxim did a study and found out women get extra wild at certain times of the year, one of those is right before valentines day. So if you are trying to get lucky or a girlfriend now is the time.
Another fun thing to do is this, don't bring a lot of money with you and only go for a short time, go to a strip club on valentines day. It is the saddest and funniest thing ever, all these lonely old men come in and give strippers candy and flowers. If that doesn't make you feel better if you are alone on valentines day nothing will lol0
