46 and 86 you're both speaking in extremes. It sucks because of the way society views the occasion but there is nothing really bad about the day itself. There is no harm in doing something extra special once a year, expecting someone to maintain this all year round is honestly a bit of a joke. If you get comfortable in a relationship it is not uncommon to be unromantic, and still be quite happy with it, then once a year go all out. It just sucks that - in young couples especially (time wise, not age) - there is a level of expectation that remains quite ridiculous. And uh, 55, maybe grow a spine and learn to uphold your own opinions in your life. Who allows expectations to force them to be an asshole? How about noticing that it is ridiculous and standing up for yourself?
146- I like what you said about it being okay to not always be romantic. I do believe, however, that valentine's day ruins that whole "once a year" plan. Romance is about spontaneity, showing your appreciation for someone because you want to. Females have begun to expect (and even demand) romance on this particular day, and that ruins the romance of it. Since when has valentines day been about getting the best, most expensive gifts, and not about showing people that you love them?
157, I don't know why people have trouble reading the entire post I make, but I have addressed your point in the last sentence of the exact paragraph you're referring to. Also, to you romance is about spontaneity, that doesn't mean others can't appreciate the day for what it is and still find it very romantic. My question is more why so much hate on the day when it is the unrealistic expectations of individuals that can ruin it?
165- Fair enough. I don't hate the day at all; I just choose not to celebrate it. I completely agree with you though. I'd just rather show my love for someone because I want to, not because a day says I have to. All day yesterday, people kept asking "What did you get?" They didn't ask "Who are you spending the day with?" or "What are you and your loved one doing today?" I was completely disappointed in how materialistic society has become, so I was mostly just ranting in my last post. Sorry if you thought I was arguing with you. :)
I, along with millions of single people and children in Africa, got nothing for valentines day. So stop meowing and enjoy your chocolate bar
6 I know there is terrible things going on in Africa, a lot of parts in the world, and maybe in your life but don't be downer. This is a place for things that sucked, are funny, and or someone's life is actually fucked. If you want to go here depressing stuff got to www.IHateMyLifeLikeSoTotallyBadAndStuff.com and enjoy that site.
You would perhaps prefer that he either ate the whole thing or left it out in the sun so it would melt? Show some gratitude. All I got today was a cigarette butt and a purple nurple.
Only thing I got today so far was a massive headache when I strode headfirst into a low hanging I-beam at work and put myself on my ass. Still not really complaining for two reasons: One, day's not over yet, wife likes to keep me in suspense ;) an Two, if a headache and whiplash is the worst thing I can gripe about in my life, I'm doing just fine. :) Cheers!
Of course, it could be his way of telling her to stop leaving her shit everywhere. A half eaten chocolate bar left in his fridge for two weeks? Yeah, sounds like he was trying to tell her something to me. Who leaves their half eaten food in someone elses fridge for extended periods of time?
