WARNING: If you're a wimp who ran out and fetched your girl a gift today because you knew she was going to leave your sorry butt if you didn't, click off now. This post is apparently offending all of the men on BYOND who don't have the courage to stand up against what they know is wrong, like holiday bondages. You have been warned.
It will be hard for me to have a girlfriend in life. Particularly because I don't celebrate holidays. I don't even celebrate people's birthdays nor do I expect people to buy me gifts on mine.
Today at school, my peers exchanged flowers, balloons, and even kisses. I also saw a few girls that were pretty pissed off. One girl in my class was cursing into her cell phone at her boyfriend ( yes, we have girls at my school that are this ghetto ). I assume she didn't receive anything. Here is my outlook on the situation:
1. A gift doesn't mean you love someone. I can buy dozens of material things for someone and smile in their face but on the inside I can hate that person or have ulterior motives behind doing it.
2. No gift doesn't mean the person doesn't love you. People at some point just started assuming that if your "valentine" didn't get you anything, they're not a thoughtful or generous person and don't care about you. Which is stupidity.
3. If I really want to give someone balloons, chocolate, or flowers, I can do that on any one of the other 364 days of the year. What is the difference between buying someone these gifts on March 14th as opposed to February 14? Absolutely nothing. But the majority of people are bound by this custom. They already know that if they don't have some Valentine's Day cards and candy ready on February 14th every year, their relationship will be in jeopardy. So every year they faithfully bust their rear ends to find some sort of present or gift for their so-called lover because they are foolish morons bound by the idiotic customs of this world.
So yeah, I may be single for a long time. Nowadays, it's difficult trying to find someone who has half a brain or can at least understand the reasoning I just explained above. Valentine's Day, Halloween, Christmas, July 4th, birthdays... they're all just another day. Nothing special or fancy needs to happen on those days. And you're a pushover if you're in a relationship with someone who demands to receive something on those days.
For these reasons, ladies, I may be your boyfriend or even your husband. But Hell will freeze over before I become your Valentine.
