It is generally an expectation. Most guys feel, that is an overrated holiday. Love should be shown 365 days a year and not just one day. It is just a commercialized holiday geared toward capitalism. Lets face it. If your partner made you feel loved, wanted, and needed every day of the year, you wouldn't need Valentines day. Additionally, the expectations shown in commercials, movies, and mainstream media, create unrealistic expectations on both parties in a relationship. Focus on a special day you make with them, not one that society deems to be necessary.5

I think that they want to be but many boys just don't know what to do.
Boys can get their feelings hurt more easily than most girls realize and are afraid of rejection.
What if you don't like what they got you?
Will you let them know that?
What ever happened to the "It is the thought that counts" motto?
Ever throw a present back at a boy and say "Why did you get me that!"
It does happen, believe it, or not.
Boys are simple but girls... we're not so much sometimes.
If you have a good boy who is trying, show him some love and remember, if you're good to him...
