The world's greatest global con is here again. 99 flowers at $190, dinner for 2 at $120, packed crowds everywhere and prices of everything goes up while the quantity and quality of what you get drops drastically.
Valentine's Day is just another day, what makes it so special that everyone has to show how much they love their partner by spending ridiculous amounts of money for things that would probably cost less than half the price 2 days from now?
If you asked me, I'd rather save the $190 on the flowers and spend that extra money on a nice little restaurant with cosy ambience. Showering love and gifts on Valentine's Day is never a good indicator of how much a person loves his partner. If he spends a bomb on you today and doesn't bother about you for the rest of the month, is that truely called love?
I'd say the true lover treats valentine's day as just another regular day, where in each regular day he shows his affection and undying love for the partner without the need of motivation from any special occasions.
Oh, and thanks dear for my VDay present.
