5 Reasons Why I Don’t Care About Valentine’s Day Anymore

why i dont care about valentines day

Happy Valentine’s Day loves, I know this seems weird considering the title of this post. I wanted to acknowledge the day and send well wishes to all you love bugs out there. Now that I’ve gotten that out the way, I can continue with my title topic. I haven’t been a fan of Valentine’s Day since my early twenties. Of course if I received a gift, I was gracious and happy about it; who doesn’t like gifts? I just never went all out for the occasion. Once again, this is strange because most of you who read my blog know that I’m loves biggest fan, but to me love is more than one particular day of the year. There are five specific reasons why Valentine’s Day doesn’t move me anymore.

The Valentine’s Day Temper Tantrums

This day has become a day of expectations. If a girl is not happy on Valentine’s Day it becomes a huge headache. If my significant other has just dished out money for a fabulous holiday gift, why should I bitch about Valentine’s Day? I hear women all the time bitch about their gifts or the fact that they didn’t get what they wanted. Valentine’s Day has become another day for retailers to make a killing in sales. As if they didn’t get enough of my money already!

It Doesn’t Change the Fate of a Relationship

My co-worker made a valid point to me yesterday. He said love is something that goes beyond Valentine’s Day. Try sending flowers just because it’s Tuesday! Valentine’s Day is one day out the year, it doesn’t matter much if you’re not doing shit the other 364 days. If you’re in a bad relationship, nothing changes just because this person gives you something on Valentine’s Day when it’s expected. If you’re SO is an asshole, trust me, they’re still an asshole after February 14th.

The Crowds

When I’m hungry, I’m hungry! The last thing I want to do is wait in a restaurant 2 hours just to eat. There’s nothing romantic about sitting in a loud restaurant screaming across the table. The last time I went out for Valentine’s Day, we double dated and ended up in a teeny weenie corner table. The waitresses were working double time to serve the mass crowds of loud people that filled the restaurant. The restaurant was so loud we had to send text messages to each other at the table. Now what’s fun about that?

The Bragging Friend

Now ladies let me keep it real here! There’s a difference between politely telling your single girlfriend that you had a good Valentine’s Day and bragging because you know she’s single. Here’s an example for you. If you call and I ask how your special day was and you say it was nice you had a good time; that’s all I need to hear. However, if a half hour passes and you still talking about it without me asking you, you’re now bragging. Single women are happy for their involved friends but we don’t want to hear about your night play by play.

And Last but not least

Who in the hell is cupid and why is he annoying as hell? I’m pretty sure getting shot in the ass with an arrow hurts like hell!
