What a croc!

Seriously, if you need to be told that you have to pay your significant other some attention on a specific date, then you are a hopeless un-romantic with bugger-all imagination.

I’m sorry, but if you choose just one day of the year to declare your undying love for me – the SAME bloody day that everyone ELSE feels compelled to do the same thing – then pardon me for thinking that you’re a complete CHOP!

Don’t get me wrong here – I’m not unromantic. I like flowers and candle-lit dinners as much as the next girl. And yes, I want naughty weekends away and edible undies too … I just don’t want all that stuff if you’re giving it to me out of obligation, which is EXACTLY what Valentine’s Day forces you to do.

If you want to impress me, then surprise me! Don’t follow the flock of boring beings who need to be told what, when and how to make their SO’s feel special. I won’t buy into that inauthentic crap.

So there. WAH!

    Valentine’s Day rocks!!!!!!!!!

    We all work so incredibly hard and we often don’t have the energy to do that special candle-lit dinner or time to buy edible undies. What Valentine’s Day provides is a powerful media-driven kick-up-the-butt. Media controls us all, it’s why we have fancy LCDs, Play Stations and so forth, none of these items are things we really need, but the media pushes them upon us just so we can engage in more media and increase our happiness. That said, the fun two people have when battling it out on a Playstation can be related to the heightened love two people share on Valentine’s Day, it’s just another thing the world has provided us with to enhance the journey to, what I dare to call, “The American Dream”.

    IMO of course =)

    @Andrew – Christmas has a religious premise, it’s totally different. If you’re not religious, then I don’t blame you for your opinion.

    Sheesh, no one could say this better! This should be published as the definitive anti valentines day argument.

    So the poor guy is caught between the devil and the deep blue sea – Dammed if he does and dammed if he doesn’t!

  10. Andrew says:

    @ Chris – Christmas is just an old pagan (Roman) holiday, dollied up by Constantine to keep the new converts quiet. Perhaps If I got more presents I’d like it. Easter is cool however – we get 2 days off!

  11. Chris M says:

    @Andrew – Haha, remind me to send you a present mate ;)

  12. justB[coz] says:

    Bah. We don’t have the time because we don’t MAKE the time … been down that very lonely road.

    Why wait till Valentine’s Day to catch a wake up?

    We just tend to take things for granted as relationships get past the novelty stage, we become complacent and boring as time goes by and we’re happy to let things slide into monotony. So much unspoken resentment can build up in this time because people just couldn’t be bothered to inject a little fun and energy into their relationships … and it really doesn’t take much at all to show someone how much you love them, how much they mean to you.
