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.
