I’m not one of those people that hates Valentine’s Day or loves it – I’m pretty neutral on the subject.
Does it suck when you’re single and wish you had a Valentine? Yes.
Does is suck when you’re in a relationship and you LOVE V-Day, but your bf forgets? Yes.
Is it awesome when someone surprises you with something special or a sweet kiss on Valentines Day? Yes, but can I be selfish and just ask that a guy do that randomly anyway?
Does it suck when you significant other, crush, fake boyfriend/girlfriend, celebrity boyfriend/girlfriend tells you they actually “don’t like Valentine’s Day” but then get mad at you when you don’t do anything for it? Yes. (WOMEN, STOP DOING THIS!)
Valentine’s Day can be fun no matter how you feel about the holiday. If you are single, go out with your girlfriends, get yourself something that you want, eat a lot of chocolate, flirt with the hot bartender, flirt with anyone that will give you a free drink (minus the creepers – stay away from those – I attract those like wildfire). If you’re in a relationship, do something with the guy whether it’s going all out (if that’s your style) or just forgetting about it all together (if that’s your style).
I told you I was neutral on the subject.
(then again, I’ve never been good at making decisions …)
While I think this holiday is made up by the wonderful world of marketers, I still think you can have fun with it. Last year was one of the best Valentine’s Days I’ve ever had – my friend and I went to our favorite bar, got hit on by lots of people and didn’t buy any drinks. Fun, right? This year, I’m spreading Valentine’s Day out a bit. 50 Shades of Grey last night (OMG WHAT), hanging out with the guy tonight and a Milwaukee day with some of my gal pals tomorrow.
In the meantime, I’ve been trying to get myself hyped up for this “holiday”
(it’s not a damn holiday) by pretending Harry Potter is my Valentine and reading a million funny HP valentine jokes. I mean, if there’s one thing that’s always there for you, it’s vodka Harry Potter!
At least Harry Potter won’t bring you any weird gifts or talk about yum yums on the first date, right? (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, read my recent post about my online dating horror story)
