What's the purpose of Valentine's Day?

If you really care and love your friends, family or partner... then everyday is already Valentine's.

Surprising your girlfriend or boyfriend on Valentine's Day with gift or affection... well isn't that something you can do on any day as well too?

  • Most people in long term relationships aren't having fancy dinners, dressing in heart covered lingerie, and buying gifts every day. It's no different than Christmas; yes, you can buy people gifts every day of the year, but you don't due to practicality and because it's not necessary. Most people show love and affection through words and doing the dishes. Valentine's Day is just an excuse to go over-the-top and spoil your lover, like a couple's Christmas.

    • Not every day but it can be done once in a while because you love that person and not because of a specific day reminding you.

      Every now and then, my boyfriend and I surprised each other.

  • St. Valentine used his position to help people get married that were not allowed to. He was killed for it. It celebrates love. The English made it the way it is now with flowers and candy. Every day should be Valentine's day though. Love is a precious thing.

    • I can do that with my boyfriend on any day. I don't really need a day to remind me how special he is. He was already special the day I chose him.

    • Show All
    • which takes away the whole purpose of love and sharing

    • You really have a point

  • Same thing as Christmas and other stupid holidays: to sell cards and other crap. Can't really sell roses in winter.

    • We already express our feelings to each other every single day.

  • The purpose is to spend money on girls that you won't be with by the end of summer. Guys you're better of hanging with an escort on that day. Or If that's out your budget then just watch porn. Oh yeah and if your the fuck buddy type - remember they do not receive the royal treatment.
