NOT FEELIN’ THE LOVE?
You’re not alone! Valentine’s Day may actually be one of the most hated holidays of the year! Not just by people who don’t happen to have a love interest in their lives at the moment. Couples report they feel the pressure to celebrate even if the date on the calendar has no particular meaning for them in terms of the way in which their relationship developed.
One of the biggest sources of pressure is to spend money they don’t have on a gift for their valentine. It’s not just the money, either–it’s trying to figure out what the heck to pick as a gift. Even the most thoughtful gift may not meet the expectations fueled by all the holiday hype, leaving the recipient of a gift feeling unhappy.
What to do? Celebrate if you want to whether you’re married or single. It’s a lovely excuse for a bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolates to honor the idea of love and romance. On the other hand, there’s nothing special about February 14th. So, ignore it if you want to or pick another day to contemplate the magic of romance. Of course, Georgie Shaw might suggest you help yourself to a little chocolate anyway!
Happy Valentine’s Day to those of you who enjoy it. And a wish for love and happiness to all of you whether you do or don’t revel in the day. xx
