What Is The Point Of Valentines Day

Posted on February 14th, 2011

The End Of Valentine’s Day

Here we are again! The end of another Valentine’s Day is upon us. For another year we can breath easy. For those of you who are in love and rejoicing in this day, congratulations! I am happy for you. For those of you who have yet to meet your perfect partner, I am rooting for you. There really is someone out there for everyone. It is just a matter of finding them. However, regardless of the individual circumstance I believe this is an occasion that is highly over-rated. It is an occasion designed for women, and too much emphasis has been placed on the event. Women have a high expectation of what they would like their partner to do on Valentine’s Day and it all too often falls short. Why would you expect more from you partner on February 14th than you would expect any other day. When in love your partners value should be appreciated every day of the year. Too many women feel inadequate when they find themselves single and alone on Valentine’s Day. While this is not necessarily true, the hype of the occasion is what creates the feelings of inadequacy. I believe I am special every day and insist on being made to feel special every day. Without the capability to make me feel this way, you are not the man for me. A relationship that gives any less is not worth my efforts.

Valentine’s Day Every Day

I also believe that women have the responsibility to make the man they are in love with feel special every day, not just Valentine’s Day. This is the secret to lasting relationships. A surprise shower of yellow roses on August 26th is far more meaningful than red roses and chocolates on Valentine’s Day. I think it has something to do with the spontaneity of it. Valentine’s Day means different things for different people and I thought it worth a mention. The emphasis that is placed on being in a committed relationship is often over-rated. It is far more important that we can find the value of ourselves for ourselves, instead of waiting for someone else to show us our worth on Valentine’s Day. Love Advice number one is each and every individual must first learn to love their-self before someone else can truly love you back. Feeling the need for validation on Valentine’s Day is a worthless waste of time. Finally let us not forget that occasions such as Valentine’s Day were only designed by manufacturers, whose sole wish is to take advantage of our vulnerable state to make a profit. Nurseries love the occasion, as they sell a lot more roses on Valentine’s Day  than any other day of the year.

    Valentine’s Day is just another gimmick created by the supplier’s of roses and chocolates. Give me my flowers on any other day of the year and they mean so much more.
