Why I Want Nothing Valentines Day

Many years ago when I worked for the state I was in the lunch room with two co coworkers on Valentines Day. They were raving about the roses, jewelry and candy they received from a boyfriend they complained about the rest of the year. I was happy for them and joked about getting just a card (I still have the card). Within weeks they were both cheated on and dumped and I was engaged. I didn't care or need the the gifts because I knew how my boyfriend felt about me everyday. Being acknowledged on Valentines Day is sweet. Sure we all love a thoughtful gift. But remember that the size of the gift doesn't represent the love they feel. In fact I have found the opposite.

She would eagerly call out the names of the girls who received a rose and each would run up blushing and smiling as they read who it was from.

Why would the school even consider trying to teach these students that crushes, dating and love are valuable...

Do Bitchy Women Get Better Gifts On Valentines Day?

Most women who are in crappy, loveless, or emotionally neglecting relationships want the traditional hallmark holiday Valentine's Day gifts! And truth is these husbands usually comply. They understand that their workaholic habits, secret infidelity or inability to meet their wives emotional needs can be  a lot to take. They may feel some hidden guilt or perhaps just find it easier to drop $365 on a Pandora bracelet than to listen to her nag about what they didn’t do! The sad part is that these women know they are guilt gifts yet still require and almost demand that they get them year after year. It never quite fixes the deeper wound the relationship is experiencing but it sure does provide some instant gratification. Women who are in happier relationships require a lot less. You see these women get love and affection on a daily basis. They feel special most of the time...
