My Opinion of Valentine’s Day-11/2/18
Hey guys I am back with another blog and as Valentine’s Day is just around the corner I thought I’d voice my opinion of it in a blog. I hope you all enjoy this opinion and I hope you also share yours in the comments below.
My opinion may come as a surprise to many as I’ve been in a relationship for 13 months. The assumption people make is that everyone in a relationship loves Valentine’s Day. However, for me this is simply not true. I see it as another day that shops use to take money from people who fall into the hype around it.
The main thing I find wrong about it is that you should be spoiling your partner every single day of the year and not just on a specific day. I also believe that if your relationship takes a shed load of gifts and one day of the year to seem strong then it probably isn’t.
In my relationship with Sophie we are super super close but when it comes to spoiling each other we do this with the things that cost no money at all and are far more valuable to a relationship.
In a relationship time, care, love, affection, effort, trust and honesty are the things you need and you can’t put a price on any of these. I had never had a relationship with all these being present consistently until Sophie and that’s credit to how good she is. I’ve never been happier and it’s our beliefs on things like Valentine’s Day that help us as we give each other everything we need without spending a penny.
We do buy gifts for each other here and there and we will give each other stuff on Valentine’s Day but neither of us feel like we must do that. With Social media I think that if your relationship is working great you will feel comfortable enough to post about it on any day of the year and not just Valentine’s Day either.
I hate seeing people feel pressurised to post just because of the day it is as you should be able to not worry about the materialistic side of that day. Store greed is ultimately why there is so much available to buy for that day and the disturbing thing is that each year the stuff is available to buy even earlier. That’s just wrong on so many levels.
Anyway guys this has been my opinion of Valentine’s Day and as you can probably tell I absolutely despise it. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this blog and I thank you for your time and support.
In the comments feel free to express your opinion of Valentine’s Day and if you are in a relationship feel free to share your plans with your partner for that day as well as what you find best about your relationship.
Thank you for reading.
