Valentine’s Day is the one day in the year when smug single people can go around with a smile and not have to pander to Capitalism’s half-arsed effort in the middle of February. It’s no longer a big deal to not have a valentine. It’s annoying if you have; someone who expects to be taken out and treated just because some bloke in a boardroom said so.
It shouldn’t have to be like that. Why do we let them dictate to us in this way? ‘Them’ meaning anyone in power that you care to blame at the present time.
