So here’s the thing about Valentine’s Day. It’s an uncomfortable and terrible holiday for everyone. Whether you’re in a relationship or you’re single. Think about it!
If you’re in a relationship, you’re probably guilty of building up this grand idea in your head of what your partner has planned, and usually, 90% of time, you’re at least somewhat dissapointed. No offense to your partners, I’m sure they tried their hardest! But what sucks at the most is that we see in movies and in TV shows how romantic we believe people can be. But it’s just that. It’s in movies or on TV, it’s not real life. But we don’t care. We set our hopes and standards high for Valentine’s Day and everyday.
Maybe they didn’t pick the right restaurant, they didn’t buy you your favorite kind of chocolate or they maybe forgot about the holiday altogether until 10 minutes before your date. And if you’re single, you feel like you’re going to be forever alone in this dark abyss of happy people in happy relationships. But those happy people in those happy relationships are actually not always so happy. So who had the better Valentine’s Day? Thats right people, no one did. And this my friends, is why Valentine’s Day is totally overrated. Everyone is left crying in their beds. This holiday is totally unnecessary. If you love someone, you should treat them like its Valentine’s Day everyday. Amirite?
