Thoughts on Valentine's Day.

I'm going to say something right now, and you're either going to throw whatever you're reading this on out of a high window, or you're going to fly away with those creepy-ass love heart eyes before melting in to a puddle of moosh..

Valentine's Day.

I am personally somewhat on the fence about it all.
I mean, I'm grateful to be living in a world filled with so much love, I really am, and whether you're single, taken, or anywhere in between, any good reason to celebrate love has always been okay by me just so long as it's genuine.

The thing that irks me about Valentine's Day is people spending money on gifts for their significant other that don't really mean anything other than "I bought you this because I thought I had to". I've always thought that if you love somebody, you should show it every day, not just once a year because it's convention. I find it rather silly to need to have a day to remind you to show someone how much they mean to you.

I may be somewhat bias, however. Jesse makes me feel so incredibly loved, and so very special every day of the year, and we're always going on little dates and having nice dinners, so I could probably live without a dedicated day but if I was with someone who isn't as open about his feelings and doing romantic things on the daily, yeah, I can definitely see the appeal.

Regardless of your feelings towards the day, I think a woman can appreciate a man acting as if Valentine's Day was the most important day of the year. Whether he meant it or not, he should know that a woman would appreciate the kind gestures and thought he put in to planning out a day to make her feel special. Pretend you don't care all you want, if it gets to Valentine's Day and he's put zero effort in to even finding you a card, you're going to die a little inside. I know I would.

Other than insincere notions, the thing I can't even deal with is the haters. My irritation isn't directed at the singles who dread February 14. After all, it's a big ol' reminder that they don't have a partner and if you're single and unhappy about it, of course it's upsetting to see all dem celebrations of love. No, I'm talking about those opinionated loud mouths. They're the ones who really irk me. I'm fine with those who see the holiday as a fake celebration, crammed down our throats by corporations, if that's how you feel, then fine. At times, I tend to agree. But it's the people who very loudly, and repeatedly express their disgust for the day, make people feel stupid for enjoying it, publically posting hate about how shallow people are, and what suckers everyone is for wasting their money..

..Stahp. Just stahp.
The point (about time, Christie) behind my rambling is this:
Love Valentines Day? Good, have a great day. Hate it? Fine, have a great day. Don't give a shit either way? Okay, have a great day.

If you don't like Valentines Day, then fine, but if it really does mean so little to you, I kindly invite you to shut the fuck up and just treat it like any other day. Leave those who love it to do their thing without fear of judgement and embarrassment.

Just go on ahead, be quiet and have a sexy adventure on Feb 14..
..with someone who smells nice.
Less complaining.
More sexy adventures.
Everyone wins.
