Don't Buy the Hype!
Posted 2/12/2012 12:10:00 PM

I'm as romantic as the next guy if not more so, but as the years have gone by, I've come to learn that Valentine's Day is just another way for flower companies, candy companies, jewelry stores and card companies to make money.

I'm not a bah humbug, down on romance guy. I'm just a man who believes in having so called "Valentines Day" more than on February 14th every year. I like to have many, many days all about love through out the year. I like to give my wife roses for no reason at all. I call them "just because" roses. I like to take my wife out to dinner" just because."

I don't need Valentine's Day and the jacked up prices on flowers etc to make me feel like I'm romantic. What about someone who doesn't have someone to love them, or to love someone romantically. Do you realize how much these people dispise Valentine's Day? I think it just exacerbates how lonely they just may be.

I didn't always get it. I've become wiser over the years. I used to give in to the pressure and guilt too, but that's just what it was. I buy into love and romance, but it's on my terms, not when I'm told which day I'm supposed to, so these companies can over charge everyone and make money. Happy Valentine's Day!
