Happy Valentine’s Day – the day that the flower shops jack up their prices of flowers and for the restaurants to have “special dinner prices” for couples.
Perhaps I am slightly jaded, being a divorced woman who has been single for a long time now and really has no desire to be in another relationship (at least not for a while), but I really think this is one of the most overrated days of the year.
Cards, flowers, expensive gifts – why do couples wait for one particular day of the year to celebrate their love? Shouldn’t they do this every day of the year? Is love not special enough to celebrate all year-long? Why not just pick a day each month to celebrate the love you have?
Once a month – go out for a special dinner. Buy flowers for your mate (male or woman!). Bring home chocolate (or something special that they like). Surprise your mate with a romantic night – it does not need to wait for February 14!!
Make your love special and show them how much you care every single day!!
