The fervor of Valentine’s Day has passed . I couldn’t help but notice at the local drugs store the expression on their faces of “Agh I forgot” or “Is that today?” I personally thought it was amusing the sheer look of panic on their faces. I personally hated Valentine’s Day when I was single not for all the cliches that are thrown at single women on that day like “Oh she’s just bitter.” To be honest even though I’ve had had a “valentine” these past few years and I did that whole cliche let’s go to a “romantic” restaurant and have a candlelit dinner; I feel like all those gestures are meaningless unless there’ s sentiment behind them.
No, I did not participate in the “Valentine’s Day” ‘ritual’ as many others this past weekend did. I guess I have a different definition of romance than everyone else because honestly watching “Avengers” and a tray of lasagana is my definition of “perfect” good movies and snuggles with my significant other seems like a perfect day. I feel like society puts so much pressure on this day which I frankly don’t understand since I’ve been on both sides of that fence single and in a relationship.
