Sorry Brenna, I’m an absolute bar humbug to Valentine’s Day! (Slightly odd as I’m a huuuge Christmas fan.) To be honest, I think it stems from being single on it through many teenage and early 20s years. I hate a day that’s commercially all about being loved up and in a relationship.
Love is wonderful and building relationships is wonderful and effort needs to be put in from both parties to keep it fresh and exciting and to show the love but all year round not just on Valentine’s Day. Big fan of anniversaries because they’re special to the people involved but honestly Valentine’s Day is the one day of the year I want nothing to do with romance because I spent so many of them feeling grotty not being with someone.
I’ve been with my OH almost 12 years now and it took him a few to get that I was very happy not getting anything for and preferably not acknowledging Valentine’s Day.
Sorry - total Valentine’s Scrooge!
