Is it just me, or does it seem like only guys complain about Valentine’s Day? I mean, complaining as if they think the occasion (it’s not a holiday if you don’t get off work) should be banned. Now, that would be ok if the only argument was financial. I agree that the day costs some serious dough for a lot of people. (Guys are not the only ones who buy stuff you know!) But I think that guys should get the hint if their wives LIKE Valentines day.
Walk with me here….
If you are married to a person who LOVES Valentines day, then maybe they are trying to tell you something. I’m just saying. I’m an old married lady. I have been telling the love of my life that a little romance would be nice a little more often for about 6 years. That information is widely available to guys. Now, if you are Peter Johnson, this doesn’t apply to you. In fact, you suck and you make all sorts of guys look terrible in comparison. Stop being so darn great to your wife or at least put on a class for all our husbands, ok?
Anyway, Valentine’s day isn’t a big deal. It’s love that’s a big deal. It’s a little extra effort. Just a little. It doesn’t have to be dinner, a movie, a new watch, flowers, chocolate and then,…you know. It could be flowers, a HOME MADE dinner and just talking and then…you know. But bottom line, Valentine’s Day is a reminder to love. That’s a good thing. Even if all the other stuff is dumb.
So, if you are going to boycott V-day, boycott it by sending a charity some extra cash and give the love of your life a back rub. Anything else I can’t be held responsible for. 😀
