Valentine’s Day needs to settle it down. Seriously, why are we putting so much value in this little old day? It shouldn’t make or break a relationship, it shouldn’t define us as people, and it shouldn’t depress us based on whatever relationship status we can use to describe ourselves on that day. It just shouldn’t. I’m actually not sad, lonely, or depressed (this year), but I still think Valentine’s Day is a little evil. A person cannot escape hearts, red crap, shiny shit, lacy shit, feathered shit, champagne shit, chocolate shit, expensive shit, diamond shit, more heart-shit, etc.
Why not just do something nice for the people you love? Even if it’s not sexy, you’ll feel good. If you are in a relationship, you’re expected to have a fancy dinner, eat chocolate, drink champagne, and then put on crazy lingerie and have the hottest sex of ever… That’s unreasonable. You will be bloated. You will not feel like having sex with the lights on. Just willing myself to get into a corset is enough to ruin a nice meal. “I’ll have the side salad without dressing as my entree…” The expectations are unrealistic. Shouldn’t this be reserved for anniversaries? What happens if a chick is unavailable for the supreme pleasures of Valentine’s Day doin’ it? Ladies get this thing every month, and it complicates things? I’m just saying: what if? That’s a lot of pressure for a reproductive system to handle.
I’m also infuriated that the V-Day tropes are that dudes spend cash while ladies put out. Blerg.
I just don’t want to see hearts everywhere. I don’t like them. I don’t want everything to be pink. I don’t want my boyfriend to feel like he has to send me roses or I will kill him. THAT’S STUPID. No one is entitled to roses. I’m certainly not.
Plus, dudes can’t handle all this pressure. It makes ladies crazy, and guys can’t live up to the crazy expectations pushed into female minds by rom-coms and Hallmark commercials. I think I’ve even seen a cat food commercial about human love recently. What? How? Why? COME ON.
Ladies, settle it down. If a dude doesn’t buy you flowers, it’s okay. Maybe just take a moment to appreciate the people you love instead of buying everything in CVS?
If you’re single, Valentine’s Day is just gigantic reminder that you are not in a relationship, and that you will likely not be needing any lacy accessories. Why should singles be tormented further by our weirdly couple-obsessed culture? Being single kind of rules… because there are no rules! Okay, not really, but still. This can be such an awkward day. We should just act normal.
Why are heart shapes so anatomically incorrect? It really bothers me.
Friggin’ Valentine’s Day…
