I Think Valentines Day Is Depressing

    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.

    Dear Clayton,

    What's goin' on? Not much to say. Just checkin' in wit'cha trying to see what's wrong today. Alone again this year? How many is that? 19? 19 years old. Over 7200 days. And you've never had a valentine. Wow. That takes some skill. But you've at least received a $.25...

    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...

    Bleh

    I've never been with someone on Valentine's. It's always a lonely day that way. My dad always gives me nice presents and candy so it's not all bad.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
