It's all about the money, money, money...
Yeah, this day arrived again. For me, it's only Thursday which means tomorrow is Friday and it means weekend! But for "other kind of" people it means buying gifts, roses, chocolate, going to an expensive restaurant ( or a cheaper one just because it's a restaurant and not that homemade meat in breadcrums or something like that). Everything forces people to buy, to spend their money - as usual - .The media, the commercials, other people, everything. Because without it they won't be cool enough, nice enough, they won't be good wives, husbands, boyfriends, girlfriends. It seems like if you don't spend your money on this day to sometimes ridiculous things you are a bad people. It is an expectation to be romantic, flying among pink clouds and hearts with the scent of roses, vanilla and other sweet things, watching everything trough pink glasses, only on this f*cked day.
If you really love someone you are not in love for just one day! You can and you should show your feelings every day, not just on Valentine's day. You don't need a day to make him or her a sweet surprise. When you really want you can have freetime for him/her. You don't have to wait for this day. You can love anytime and anywhere. If I want to seem sentimental: Every day can be Valentine's day.
Finally, is there anybody who is still remember that miserable St. Valentine who originally "caused" this day?
