It’s tougher being in a relationship on Valentine’s Day than not being in a relationship. Trust me. Especially if you are in more than one relationship on a single Valentine’s Day(This is information that you can’t trust me on, this is from observations). You have to remember who gets what. It’s like being Santa Claus because you also have to remember who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. Except this is the day that it pays to be naughty.
If there is only one person, you have to try not to forget to buy something. You also have to buy the right thing.
My favorite part of the day is when people proclaim their love on Facebook to their significant other. “To the love of my life. I love you with all my heart but I am too lazy to put on some pants and head to a store and spend $1.99 on a card that someone else wrote.” That is true love! If the only way they can show their love is by typing out 20-50 words on their phone, you can rule out getting a hand-made card. Facebook is the new lazy.
There is also the first time the a wife tells her husband( or whatever she got going on) that “this is the year” they are not getting each other gifts. Usually, the wife “will become upset” because, even though no gift or flowers was agrreed upon, she did not get a gift-complete opposite of the new contract. Then the next, she is surprised because of what happen the previous year. Because the man didn’t buy a gift, again( my experience). I am not saying that single people should get over being single, just that there is another side of the coin.
This post is a day late because I thought that Valentne’s Day was today. Funny how that worked out, huh?
