Love is so much greater than red plastic hearts.
Another thing I hate about v-day is the stressing of couplehood. Stores basically only market to people involved in Relationships. If there doesn't happen to be a boy out there who wants to buy me something pink and disposable in the middle of february, why should that make me feel unloved? How awful is it that, on a day meant to celebrate love, so many people end up feeling inadequate and lonely?
Love is greater than can be contained by only two people.
So forget v-day, forget the red plastic hearts, forget the pink carnations. I want to celebrate love. Real love is not confined to just one person or day. I love so many people and things, but it's easy to get so annoyed and cynical about v-day that I forget to share my love.
So I'd like to offer anyone who reads this post a February Gift. Comment here, and I will tell you something I love about you. It doesn't matter how well I know you -- I'm looking forward to doing it, so please respond!
