I love all forms of genuine declarations of love and truth be told I love presents even more, but none of these things solely happens on valentines day so why all the fuss? Contrary to your presumption, this post is not to condemn the celebration of valentines but to shine a light on why it really isn’t a big deal, why you shouldn’t put pressure on your significant other to do it and why it’s ok to ignore it and spend the day like any other day.
If you have watched my video on the dos and don’t for valentine’s day, you would know that I’ve had my fair share of good and terrible valentines. I recently discovered that my opinion on valentine’s day generally fluctuates depending on one factor which is satisfaction.At this moment, I am satisfied with love, so much so that I can happily ignore the season of love without feeling left out. Truth be told I am not sure how I reached this state of mind but I can only attribute this feeling to being frequently shown love in multiple ways by my Husband. Well done babe you are doing an amazing job, anyway, moving on swiftly because I find talking about myself super awkward. If your partner expresses his/her love for you on a regular basis, is it really fair to demand that they take part in the valentines celebration if it is not something they believe in? If you have no doubts regarding their feelings for you, what does a few chocolate and flowers really do for you? Whilst these things are nice, is it worth having unnecessary arguments with your partner about. I employ you to think about the questions above and come to your own personal conclusions. Whilst I might not believe it’s a subject worth having an argument about, it is ok to think otherwise.

Ever heard of the term ‘Basic Bitch’? For those that don’t already know, this term is mainly used by females to bring other females down.
