I know Valentine’s Day seems silly. I know how obnoxious it is to be told by the whole culture that, as some sort of weak, candy-ass proof that you love her or him, you have to buy flowers and chocolates—the exact same stuff that every other person is buying, on the exact same day, for the exact same reason, which in any sane world would be universally appreciated as the very opposite of romantic since the whole thing about romantic love is how special and personal and private it’s supposed to be two people and only those two people!
[Sigh] I get it. I get the problem with Valentine’s Day. We experience Valentine’s Day like it's been ordered by the government. It just feels extremely unnatural. And intrusive. And mostly insultingly obligatory.
Please consider this advice as totally excellent and correct:
Do. It. Anyway.
Happy Valentine's day!
