I find the 'is Valentine's day good or bad?' an evolving question and each year many of my friends have different views on the day depending on age, their relationship status and of course who they are in a relationship with. I'm one of those ladies that sit on the fence. I'm not for or against it, just indifferent. I have no greater expectation of this day over any other. They should all be pretty good right? In all honesty, my thoughts really go out to the many males who are literally like a deer in headlights with trying to analyse and understand the female psyche around what is expected of them on this day. Many are such sweethearts and they really deserve respect for at least trying. I've seen many males stressed out of their wits with the 'do I or don't I get her something' dilemma. At the end of the day isn't a good relationship enough on it's own? After enduring a few bumpy one's I have to say hell yes!
Regardless of if you celebrate, here is my free wish and good thoughts for you all... For all of the true romantics at heart, I hope you get swept up in a nice dream like state and enjoy your own Cinderella moment. For the avid avoider’s (you know who you are) may this day be just as fabulous as any other of your days. For those of you with a significant other, may they be able to wade through the mine field of what they should and shouldn't do or buy (you too), so you can both just enjoy another day of the year together. And the singles, I hope you have a lovely day rejoicing in either your own company (which is always brilliant) or the company of friends. Remember don't forget to enjoy your freedom! Maybe the world needs a 'single day' too. Has that been pitched yet? Just a thought...
Yes, I did partake in a little retail revenue raising this year. I just had to buy this card (yes that's all I bought). Hopefully the humorous side of this isn't lost on the romantics.
So lovelies... Happy Valentine's Day! I'm keen to hear what your position is on Valentine's day?
