Thoughts on Valentine's Day?

Do you love it? Or hate it? What are your plans for Valentine's?

My personal opinion is that t's overrated. I think you should express love for your SO every day of the year, not just once a year on Valentine's Day. And it's kind of just something to benefit the whole greeting-card industry. And also, it makes those who aren’t in relationships feel excluded and lonely. I don't know, what do you think?

  • It doesn't really bother me, even though I'm single as crap lol. If anything, it is an excuse for me to go and shamelessly go and get cookies at the local bakery for myself. I don't really treat it differently otherwise. If I was in a relationship that'd probably be different. But even then, I prefer handmade cards over store bought ones, so I at least would have to deal with the overpriced goods on that front.

    And the idea of Valentine's day doesn't bother me. Should one express their love for their SO every day of the year? Yes, but Valentine's Day gives a reason to do something extra special. It's kind of the same concept of a birthday in my opinion. One should be a good friend to their friend everyday, but the birthday gives them a reason to go above and beyond the usual (i. e. presents/gifts).

    Valentine's Day has different expenses than a birthday, but the underlying concept is similar, and nothing says one has to celebrate it by buying the cliché (and price-raised) items.

  • I don't wanna keep anyone from celebrating it, but I think the holiday is a total lie to sell stuff.

  • I sort of feel the same way as you. You should express your feelings and show that you care for your partner every single day, not just once a year. So to me, Valentine's could disappear, I don't care.
    BUT, if my girl likes Valentine's Day, I would make sure to do something special for her. I don't want anything, maybe just a small written letter, but nothing big.

  • 100% with you! You should be able to show your SO that you love them all days of the year.

    It's a manufactured holiday. Could not care less about it.. But.. If my future girlfriend wants to celebrate it... I guess I have no choice 😅

  • Agree with you. A money grab. I've seen some studies of how much money people will spend and it's absurd.

  • I like it. I don't get why so many people get so worked up over it. Yeah you can show love to people every other day, you can also get drunk any other day you want but you do it on st. Patrick's day. Same thing.
    It's just a fun day to exchange gifts with your loved one (It doesn't even have to be a partner, you can make the holiday about friends too) and maybe do something a little extra special than usual.

  • I don't care for it because I'm single and I agree with your opinion. You should express affection for your SO all the time, not just on one particular day

  • Im single and i agree with you, kinda does make us feel #forever alone but in a way if you think about it. It benefits us as we can go hunting in valentimes day which girls are more achknowledged to meet guys and the other way around.
