I don't know if I'm cursed or something, but I always happen to be single and pissed on Valentine's day. I'm single today, but not pissed. Why? Because this year I've realized how empty our consumerist society is, and, essentially, how love is a lie. Combine those two, and you have the most bullshit holiday ever.
Commercials convince girls that they have to waste money in order to prove to each other that they love each other. And that relationship, which is based off of unfullfilled psychological needs from the past and insecurity, is now fed by consumerism.
I find it morally despicable the way women's emotions are manipulated into feeling totally dependent on the spending habits of guys for their self esteem.
Why must people find it so necessary to advertise their wealth? To make those who make less (not because of laziness, but most likely because of low genetic intellectual endowment) feel like shit. To you people who embrace status symbols, do something good with your lives.
To so many who have someone, why do they have to feel like Valentine's Day is a burden to 'plan' something? And to those who are single? Why feel as if you are not complete unless you are with someone? People should not rely on others for happiness. If that is the case, then you need to start thinking outside the cubicle. Relationships add to life when they are two people mutually improving each other. Dependence is unfortunate.
