Why I Hate Valentines Day
I'm sure I'm not the only person who feels this way about this day. I've never really been a fan of it. There's no way you can live up to the hype of it all. When I was younger, I hated it because most of the time I didn't have a steady boyfriend, so when February 14th rolled around and all the girls I worked with were receiving flowers, candy and sweet cards, I made myself busy so maybe they wouldn't notice that no one was sending me special tokens of affection. No big deal. There were a few exceptions, but not many. Now that I'm older, I feel like Valentine's Day is nothing more than an obligation to many. I think its much more romantic to get an 'I Love You' card on an ordinary day or maybe one single rose instead of the obligatory dozen. I would rather get one single rose for no reason than a dozen on Valentine's Day because that's whats expected. It's only 9:00 in the morning and already my Valentines's Day is in the dumper. I won't go into details. I just want to get thru this day so I can put another Valentine's Day behind me.
