As a bitter twisted cynic I hate Valentines day, it’s a given fact. I hate the commercial way its sold to us, with the cards and flowers and endless streams of chocolates and gifts. I hate the way it singles out singles and for at least one day makes us feel like shit. I hate the way we are bombarded by a holiday that’s not even a real holiday.
As a bitter old-young man I have to say things like ‘Why do couples need a day, romance should be spontaneous’, ‘Its a day designed my card manufactures to make us feel like shit’ and finally ‘Movies and T.V. tell us that we must find the one but its all rubbish there is no one just acceptance’.
All in all Valentines day brings the douche out in me.
But I think truthfully that all us singles and cynics should congratulate couples ‘Good for you’ ‘Well done’. Cause these people have found a happiness that im sure we all will find at some moment in our life however fleeting, short or Brief.
I also want to thank the Movie’s and T.V show’s for showing us the happiness in the world around us, the joys and the struggles as well (because they are there, sadly). They don’t propel a myth they just show us the highlights of life, a montage so to speak.
Happy Valentines Day.
