Valentine's Day: The Annual 'Oh No, Not Again' Saga

It's Valentine's Day, yet again... the day we all dread unless you have a significant other, and if that's the case, then the day comes with its other qualms, like what the heck are we doing for it? Are we above celebrating Valentine's Day? Are we trying to be cute and get some flowers? Will we care if our partner doesn't even mention it? Like trust me, being in a relationship doesn't mean the day gets any easier. Oh and guys, don't expect your missus to get you anything! We are keeping this day very much traditional. And so boys, you're not off the hook.

But, how about those of you in situationships or just newly dating? This day makes everything so much more pressure-yy, I know that's not a word, but you get what I mean. If you're sort of hanging out with someone, this day is treated like a 'test'. Will he or won't he mention it? I mean, if he does... that means it's getting serious, he wants to become official soon, right? But if he doesn't it means you're still pretty much 'nothing.' Which is even more worrisome, because you sit there thinking, Okay so, we're nothing. So I'm not going to text you first then, and I'm also not going to be super available anymore. We start spiraling... but what I will say is this. Guys are not as dumb as they look (no offense boys) they know exactly what they're playing at. They know it's Valentine's Day and they know this day is a big deal, girls make it a big deal (even when we try to act like it's not). We're waiting to see your reaction to that day, waiting to see if you make plans with us that week.

And then you've got the new Galentine's Day events, popping up everywhere trying to make all the single ladies of the world feel better about being alone. This is just a way for hospitality businesses to create more unnecessary events that we can spend our money on. Look if I were single this Valentine's Day, I'll tell you exactly what I'd be doing. Treating myself, to some Botox, Filler, a Blow-out, and some new shoes. In the words of Carrie Bradshaw “Being single used to mean that nobody wanted you. Now it means you’re pretty sexy and you’re taking your time deciding how you want your life to be and who you want to spend it with.”
