5 Things That Valentine’s Day Is Not!

Come February and it seems the entire human race is falling in love, all over again… from the colour red flashing everywhere to the enumerable sales and gifting options available all for your beloved Valentine, February the 14th surely brings that warm, loving feeling with it. But as it’s said, too much of anything isn’t good and the same applies to ‘Valentine’s Day’ and the ‘love’ that comes with it. So, here’s what I believe Valentine’s Day is not:

#1 A day to tell people that you have a girlfriend or a boyfriend…

… which change every season, just like your wardrobe! Instead let’s make our significant other feel loved and wanted throughout the year; after all a little bit of sweet-nothings every now and then would brighten up their day more than that open declaration on V-day. What say?

#2 A day to tell people that you have a girlfriend or a boyfriend

giftsBecause they are done to death, period. Let’s be creative enough rather than going in for the clichés please as that would just force your girlfriend to still act coy and be nice, even when she doesn’t feel like.

#4 A day to say ‘I-love-you

giftsFrankly speaking, it makes me feel nauseous seeing the way those words which are meant to have a magical effect are overused for the entire day. Actions speak louder than words, so let’s not just say but show our partner that you really do love them to bits through loving, thoughtful gestures.

#5 A day for expensive gifts and dinners…

Well, they are exciting and something to look forward to. But doing something for the special one that will last and not get over in a day is priceless! As I always say, it’s more about the thoughtful gestures rather than the expensive gifts that would give you the brownie points!

P.S.: For all those who are single, it should be a day to pamper yourself! Dress-up, go out and party with your friends. After all, a little party never killed anybody!
