    A Valentine's Day Ranting - Written One Maddened Day A Few Years Ago...

    It's just not fair. Some girls get loads of cards, presents, heart shaped balloons etc. And others .... nothing D': Valentines Day is an evil, evil holiday. It was formed to sell flowers/cards/merchandise. Reminding you that you have no life whatsoever and bringing pain into the...

    I'm probably a different girl

    than any other, I don't like roses and flowers I actually hate them, I don't like when people play with my hair, in Valentines with each of my boyfriends they ditched me for stupid reasons and left me heartbroken, so I decided Valentines is not a romantic day for me and it's not...

    My Least Favorite Day of the Year

    As the dreaded day draws closer I can already see the signs of the worst day of the year. Jewlery stores are advertising a hell of a lot more, flowershops are stocking up, corny cupids and pink hearts decorate the window of every store. Valentine's Day is like a day for couples...

    For valentine's day I always say,

    "it's fine, we don't have to do anything". Then I wait for a surprise, just something little...like a card with a funny joke. At the end of the day when nothing has happened I get a bit depressed. I feel like your partner should want to do something for you on this special day...

    Even if I was in a relationship on Valentine's

    Day and have a valentine, I can't help but think about the singles' out there. They have no one to celebrate it with. The couples, etc., are out enjoying themselves and it seems as if they're rubbing the fact that they're with someone in the singles' face. I mean, of course, you...

    Which is pretty sad seeing

    as how I was born on this day. It was fun when I was a kid. Everyone couldn't wait for my birthday because every year my mom would throw a big fun party at McDonald's. But as I got older, into my teens and now 20s, I've been depressed on my birthday. I don't have many friends...

    grandma died 3 days before my birthday. I am just happy I got to spend almost two full years with her. On Valentine's Day I give flowers to the girl I show most affection for to maybe make their day. Just because I have a bad day doesn't mean others have to suffer and when...

    Even Though I Was Born the Day Befor

    I hate v-day! Even if I did love someone, unlikely, why do you need that one day to show that you love them. I mean shouldn't it be every day? I don't feel like typing much so thats all.

    One Day To Love

    Isn't it ironic that people only use this "man-made holiday" to tell people they love them? I dislike the concept of "one day to tell people you love them", because you must be able to tell people you love them all the time, not just when this "one day" comes on the calendar map...

    Commercialism to Blame

    Valentines Day is that day of the year when all you want is something from anyone to show you that someone actually really cares, but with it being so over commercialized it has taken away the magic of it all, with such an easy excuse as over commercialism not to spoil someone on...
