It's not about the date, it's who you are with
Valentine's Day is coming up and to some people it could get pretty lonley for the single ones. Some girls want to be pampered but that's not what relationships should be about.
Think of it this way you could be on a date at the Empire Stat Building but does that mean you will be happy? Your date could flirt with the waitress, check out other girls, put you down, ignore you and talk on his phone, etc. Then you could be playing video games with someone and laughing. You could even have someone who is not your boyfriend yet but things are going in a good direction.
You don't need to go on a date in order to be happy. Of course it is part of relationships but don't get down if you don't have a date this Valentine's Day. All that matters is the person you love loves you back. Just because someone does not spend money on you does not mean that someone does not care for you.
Some people are also in the wrong relationships for the wrong reasons. In today's society money became a big thing. As long as two people are hard working and get along with each other that is all that matters. It is not where you go with someone, it is who you are spending time with.
