"It's the most, loneliest time, of the year."
No shit sherlock, yet it's a cool day when you have someone in your life. Go live in Iran if it bothers you that much.
should I post a picture of me kissing my dog?
it can be a special day for a couple without them having to spend money on pointless stuff?
also average valanetines presents are very cheap so dunno what are you on about, u rly that poor?
who cars)) just buy a cheap gift like gucci shoes or sumthing
Just about EVERY holiday is exploited by corporations. Corporations exploit Xmas, Easter, every holiday around. Corporations also exploit their countries governments and their citizens in the USA, Apple pays like 0.0001% tax while middle-class people pay 30%.
If corporations exploiting something automatically made it bad, everything in the world would be bad.
It is your choice whether or not you buy into the consumerism or not. You can choose to embrace the holiday, but leave out the need to buy things. If you want you can also denounce the holiday and be against it, but you can be against the commercialism without being against the holiday.
oh my god! people with expendable income are using it!
saying valentines day is a sheep day is exactly like saying that st. patricks day is a sheep day and even christmas is a sheep day...
zero logic, just a reason to celebrate.
Day like very other day in the year except it sucks because u realize how lonely u are, u cant even meet with the boys to go to a bar, and while u might say something like "hating on valentines day is such a 90's thing, nowadays we have much bigger problems" and while it may be true i still fucking hate this day so much
Valentine's Day is a special day, commemorating a saint who supposedly performed Christian marriages at a time when that was illegal, and gave out hearts to everyone. I agree with #31, it's a legitimate holiday.
For me its the same like "spending time with the family only on the Christmas", or new-year resolutions. Why you need specific date to start doing something. Why you dont do that all the year? Why dont you appreciate your gf/wife whole year?
- As a person who havent never celebrated this day and I dont know the history of this.
valentines day as unnecessary as halloween
who cares. if you dont have a gf then you wont celebrate it as millions of other people. if you got a gf, then its a happy day with a good mood but thats it. its not a big deal. its not that hard to ignore it. plus if im not mistaken phub gives free premium for today so heres that.
Cry is free. But for real, don't hate on others happiness, you shouldn't look at it in ways to demean and walk on others...
I know it's pushed by corporations, yet I still celebrate it. There's literally no reason for chocolate even to be part of it but they pushed it and it gained meaning like a whole bunch of stuff have.
that doesn't make it okay to use 2012 memes
