You know, I kinda have to disagree with you here. I understand it IS your rant, but I must add my own thoughts.
Never in my life had any man given me a card or flowers on Valentines day, no chocolates for me no thing at all. Don't get me wrong, I have been
married, but my daughter was the only person in my life who had ever done anything for me on Valentines Day, and her and I had a thing going, she made
me a homemade card every valentines day and I got her a different stuffed monkey every year.
But men? Definitely not. Until this year. Last year my new husband and I were 800 miles apart, so this was our first official Valentines Day together.
I wasn't expecting anything at all, although I was thinking a chocolate bar might be nice since I like chocolate and the stores are inundated with
the stuff... but I was not expecting anything at all.
I came home from work the day before Valentines Day to a bouquet of flowers and a pretty vase to put them in, a GIANT Valentines Day card, chocolates
of all different sizes and shapes, and a great big balloon... lol... It was all great... I felt special, even though it is a "commercial"
I felt... I dunno... like I was worth something to him, especially when he said he did it because he wanted to keep me, and had never done anything
like this for anyone else... ever.
He did it all thursday in order to surprise me, because I might have expected it on Valentines Day... so when I came home Friday, with something he
liked and a card for him, I thought Valentines to be basically over...
But then I walked in the door only to see rose pedals on the floor, and new sexy frilly underthings and a single rose.... lol... HIS Valentines
present this was....
but again, it was awesome, and wonderful.... and he had the Valentines he wanted too... and again I felt special, and beautiful and all those things a
woman dreams of feeling...
So, while it may be commercial... I LOVED feeling like that for the first time in my life..... it was great. And while my husband does great things
every day, and we show our love for each other every day.... Valentines was GREAT too....
It was something I had never before experienced, and something I never knew I would like or enjoy so much. Basically... don't knock it... Valentines
Day can be wonderful too...
