Today’s Topic: Valentine’s Day is way overrated.

There’s too much pressure on Valentine’s Day. The need for gifts is more like a competition to out do other couples. Here are some thoughts on a completely overrated, pressured-filled holiday.

Joanna:

Girls always want presents when it comes to the day of love, but they don’t really have a need for it. Let’s be honest. We all know girls who take pictures of everything their boyfriend gives them just to compete with other couples. I know at least five different girls who post the pictures then lose all interest of what they received. Boys don’t get out of this problem either. If one person puts down their foot to not wanting to be used for competition, the pressure can be removed. Give your Valentine a gift that shows how much you care even if it’s small or hand made. Going all out for no reason ruins Valentine’s Day.

Raul:

Girls always seem to put a lot of pressure on boys because girls usually expect something big. If it isn’t big, then it has to cost a lot of money, which most guys our age don’t have. They usually want expensive bracelets, rings, necklaces, chocolates, makeup, and flowers. Many guys our age can barely even afford a teddy bear and a dozen of roses. Can girls just be happy with what they get? Isn’t it “the thought that counts?”

Both:  

So we both agree that there is total pressure when Valentine’s Day comes around. This is the time of year where the most money is spent on ridiculously expensive gifts such as: jewelry, chocolate, flowers and dinner dates. If you’re a couple, talk to each other about realistic expectations. Maybe check out the Grizzly Gazette’s article “V-Day on a Budget”. And if you’re single, thank your wallet.
