Valentine's Day SUCKS!
Oh no, the big monkey took my woman... MAMA F***ER!
Valentine's Day is crap, love is crap, falling in love is for babies who are afraid to be alone, stupid holiday, leave me the hell alone! Sorry. I don't know about other countries, but here in 'Merica, we love to hype the shit out of Valentine's Day for some stupid reason. Weeks before the day even arrives, you see stores and malls just shoving this holiday down our throats reminding us that it's coming. Valentine's Day is supposed to be a day where you appreciate your significant other, whether she be your girlfriend or wife, and make her feel special, but it's really a day of misery for both singles and couples! I'm going to explain why it's a horrible day for singles and couples, and then give you three reasons to deal with this holiday.
For your wife or girlfriend, they don't have to do anything. No seriously, this is their day, it's the guy that has all the pressure put on him! For the guy, its all on him to deliver a good Valentine's Day for his girlfriend or wife, and if he fails, it makes him look really bad. For the man, it's his job to treat his girlfriend of wife like a princess for a day, whether he buys he jewelry or just does something very romantic, that puts a lot of goddamn pressure on a guy! It doesn't help that Valentine's Day is in February, which means that the guy is freezing his nuts off to make Valentine's Day great. So what this means is that if you're a guy, and you have a girlfriend or wife, and you fail to make the day great for her, your nuts aren't the only thing that's gonna be ice cold! And you can thank Corporate America for hyping the shit out of this holiday every year, and the fact that they will make guys seem like a bad guy for not going over the top. But i've talked enough about couples, let's get to singles who have to suffer...
As a single guy, I try to ignore Valentine's Day as much as possible, but it seems completely unavoidable. And that's one of the reasons why I hate this holiday, because it's just really insulting how this holiday is in our face to remind us that we don't have a special someone and make us feel like shit. The only way I can avoid all this is if I stay home the week of Valentine's Day. I don't like the fact that this holiday keeps reminding people who are alone that they are alone, and I can't imagine being someone who broke up with someone right before Valentine's Day, which makes it ten times worse. Again, I wouldn't be so frustrated with this holiday if it wasn't shoved down my throat every year, because I do get tired of acting like the grinch every year going holy shit not this stupid holiday again.
Okay, now that that's out of the way, let's talk about how you can deal with Valentine's Day, i've got three ways to do so:
1. Take a plane to New Zealand.
Why New Zealand, because by the time you get there, Valentine's Day is long gone! Plus, I hear it's a beautiful place.
2. Move to Florida.
Because if you're in Florida, Valentine's Day is the least of your problems!
3. Treat your girlfriend/wife special every day.
I've talked about a few reasons why I don't like this holiday, but this is the reason why this holiday bugs me. If we have to create a holiday in order to make women feel special, then we've done something wrong. This is THE reason why I get frustrated at this holiday, because I see and hear about dumbass guys treating their girlfriend/ wife like shit all the time, and then hurting my chances in the process. It's beyond frustrating, has everyone forgotten the golden rule? It's not easy, but it ain't rocket science either, your girlfriend/wife ain't your personal chef of maid, and if you can't see that, then you don't deserve to have a girlfriend/wife. This is not the 1920's anymore.
Hoo boy, that was a LOT deeper than I expected, so i'll end with this: Guys who have girlfriends/wives, just remember to treat her like a queen. Or a princess. Or moon princess. Like Sailor Moon. ...I'll shut up now.
