Valentine's Day SUCKS

jeff's picture

I don't believe that, but since so many people usually do on here, I figured I'd make an area to corral all your whinging.

Have at it.

All posts must contain at least two of these words:
corporate
Hallmark
stupid
fake
single
hate
nonsense
roses
hearts
candy
alone
depressed
love
straight friend
whinge
chocolate
dark
dairy
cancer
movies
candles
dinner
special
why me?

Have fun!

OK, try this rant...

Why me? Why must I be alone and depressed on this stupid Hallmark holiday? It's a nonsense corporate invention to sell fake roses and candy. I hate hearing my straight friend whinge about her boyfriend when he's going to bring her dark chocolate hearts and take her to the movies. I, because I am single, have to sit at home and eat dinner with no romantic candles and no one whispering, "I love you," in my ear. The only thing I get to do tonight is watch TV and learn all the reasons that dairy is supposed to cause cancer. Not special at all.

...sorry. Just couldn't resist trying to work in all the words. :-)

If you want my ACTUAL opinion... I do wish I had someone to 'be my Valentine,' as it were, and I do think people take the holiday a little too seriously, but I have enough stuff to depress me already. Why should I hate Valentine's Day, when I know I would like it better if I had somebody to share it with?

Maybe someday. In the meantime, I'm trying to organize a movie night with another single friend so we have something to distract ourselves from the non-single world's romantic bliss. :-)

Hey emos...

Dashboard Confessional is giving its new single away for free on Valentine's Day, so grab it from their MySpace page.

See, if you had hot dates and all, you wouldn't have time to learn about stuff like this. :-)

Why is cancer on the list?

Why is cancer on the list? It seems so out of place....

Poor is the man
Whose pleasures depend
On the permission of another
Love me, that's right, love me
I wanna be your baby
Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love
Hoping, praying
For you to justify my love
I'm open and ready

Easy...

Valentine's Day is often celebrated with chocolate. Chocolate is often milk chocolate. Milk causes cancer promotion in the body. Very straightforward.

Well..

It doesn't *cause* the cancer itself, but if you have cancer, you'd have a hard time finding a better substance to feed it than milk.

Oh, it increases risk of osteoperosis, too.

Umm...

Then have dairy-free dark chocolate. Almost every survey about the benefits of chocolate have been dark chocolate, which also tends to have less sugar. At least with good chocolate, not Hershey's or Doves, they put cow secretions into their Dark as well.

Calling it Vday brings to mind...

...the acronym for venereal disease. It's fitting. No doubt incidence of contracting these ills will spike over this weekend. I'll be watching Splendor In The Grass. Alone. It's about two teenagers who are driven mad by celibacy.

oooooh! i have another idea!

oooooh! i have another idea! we should all pm random people telling them to be our valentine! it doesn't matter bc its valentines day and I don't think you should have to know people to be their valentine.

jeff's picture

Here's what I'm talking about...

Here's a cute gay boy who didn't have a Valentine, so what did he do? He went and bought a dozen white roses to give to his friends to tell them he loves them.

And, no, Kenny doesn't post here. I've told him to in the past already.

I went shopping for V-Day,

I went shopping for V-Day, got me some sweet new pants and a knit beret, adding to the already copious amounts of boho chic crap overflowing my closet.

I also gave my buddies heart-shaped cookies.
I can't cook much, but damn it, do I make fucking good cookies.

v day

v day is just so thatbig buisness can make more choclate and flower and chessey card sales. so if you have someone your still going to have them tommorow, and your realation ship is still going to be the same, hopefully. and if you dont have some one it just means you need to find the right person. you still going to be just as likley to find your person todat as yesterday. and to and my raving if we all had ferrets, v day would be obsolete because a ferret can love you far more thena person can, and they will not abandon you.
so if you are sad today is the best day to be happy, and get a pet ferret.

hugs from ferrets

Hmm...

I'd buy more of these arguments if people said the same thing about Christmas, but since single people get presents on Christmas, it seems to be less of an awful, corporate holiday. :-)

I've decided...

To ignore it, mostly. I will happily eat the pink M&M's, and use it as an excuse to take my girlfriend to dinner, and flowers are pretty. But those chalky cute-saying hearts? Those suck. Seriously, ew.

Other than that, I'm mostly over whinging about it, unless I'm in a bad mood.

Do I shock you darling?

I hate it. Its cute and all

I hate it. Its cute and all if you have someone, but I am anti-PDA and anti-coupley behavior in public. This year wasn't any different.
I am glad its over, I don't need to fear a singing valentine from the boyfriend.
