Valentine's Day: More Love It or Hate It!

Updated on January 10, 2015

Valentines Day Gifts For The Heart

Love to get Valentine's Day gifts like chocolates in heart shaped boxes, flowers from your husband or boyfriend? Who can hate Valentine's Day and sweet candy hearts with the cute little messages? Not everyone agrees! Some people are done with love, believe they will never find true love and hate the fuss and pressure of being adorable and loving on Valentine's Day. How do you feel about it? Join our Love or Hate debate!

New to our Valentines DIY Blog: Valentine's Day Water Snow Globes: Do It Yourself With Love

Love or Hate: The Great Debate! - Valentine's Day Romance Make You Sick?

Valentine's Day Everywhere
Valentine's Day Everywhere

I thought everyone loved Valentine's Day! Boxes of chocolates in heart shaped boxes, romantic red roses, adorable teddy bears in t-shirts dressed up for the holidays, what's not to love! My dad always had a special "Valentine's Day for My Daughter" card waiting for me when I woke up on February 14th. My husband always has a romantic valentine surprise gift and I never forget cute little hearts and flowers for my daughters.

Valentine's Day is not loved by everyone though! In society today if you don't have a special lover or companion who sends you gifts and flutters about planning a romantic surprise, it's a day set up to make you feel bad about yourself! Powerful emotions that make you hate everything red or pink. Feel like hair pulling when you see those cute t-shirts with hearts and cupids? Do you get the urge to chuck those cute little heart shaped candies at images of lovers in romantic silhouettes? You are not alone if you hate Valentine's Day and all the little gifts, cards, apparel and commercialism!

What are your plans for the holiday of love? Will you have a teddy bear and roses kind of day, or a Guns and Roses blow 'em all up kind of holiday?

Everyone Loves Something!

Even if you don't love valentines, everyone loves something! You love your family or your favorite sports, or hobbies or animals like your cat or dog. If you love it, own it and show it off proudly.

Spread The Love

Valentine's Day doesn't have to be just about flowers, chocolate and decadent romantic dinners. Consider showing some love to those who would really appreciate it. Drop by your local Senior Citizen community or nursing home where a visit and a smile is the real treat of the day. Or adopt a cat or dog who is always ready to give and get love unconditionally.

Make a donation to your favorite cause. Drop some clothing off at a local shelter or neighborhood bin. Sign up at your local schools and read a book to a class. Smile at a stranger in the street just for no reason. Who knows, they may even smile back.

      I've never been one for Valentines Day. I've lived my life alone, devoid of any outside affection, excluding my family of course. I'm almost twenty-one now and for the first time in my life I actually had a reason to celebrate today (V-Day), but that blew up quick. Three and a half months ago I got my first girlfriend (I know I'm a "late bloomer"), her name was Brandy and I'd known her for practically my whole life. She was my sisters bff and, as it turns out she liked me. So in October we started dating, everything was going fine. We'd had a couple of arguments, but nothing too major. I had it all planned out, flowers, chocolate, trip to the park (she loves the outdoors, very nature loving person) and in the end I was going to surprise her with concert tickets the day before Valentines Day and a 14k white gold ring with 3 diamonds in it. But, as it would be, she tells me one week before the big day that she doesn't "love me" and that she thinks of me more as her Brother. LOVE SUX!
