Well, it’s seems the day is upon us where many of us are made to feel guilty or obliged in more than one way (not me btw!). The day greeting card companies bump up in the media as a way to show your love to the person you’re in a relationship with. If you’re unlucky enough to get caught up in this fiasco then I hope you’re credit card still works.
If you don’t get caught up then you’re someone who realizes that you don’t need a specific day to celebrate and show your love. It should and could be done every day and doesn’t have to cost anything! Hugs, kisses, and hand written notes work for this woman.
If you’re single and planning a date for this day you better save up. You’re showing your date a false sense of your spending habits in that the prices for almost everything for this “event” seem to be jacked up. I thought maybe it was just me until I was sent an infograph for research done for Match.com on my Facebook page.
The roses are a given when jacking up the expense. I’m not sure why. If I thought about it on a business sense I would think flower companies would be getting these roses for cheaper as they would be getting more at a bulk rate. Then selling them at a higher price on/around Valentine’s Day. This is a
Looks like from this graph that it’s best to stick with chocolate and booze. Sign me up! A night at home with the man eating chocolate and getting drunk sounds great to me! Although I know I’ll be paying for it in another way the next day with the nasty hangover that comes with someone who needs that extra day to recover nowadays. Oh..and looks like perfume is cheaper too, I could use that for my butt if it reacts to booze the same as in did in the end of this post.
In short, take a look at the real reasons behind Valentine’s day. If you know that your date/significant other is going to be impressed that you wasted your money on something that’s either going to die in a few days and/or be digested, then go a head and do so. Although it could be viewed as paying for sex, just saying.
My advice is if they aren’t that picky, wait a week!
