    Are you pressured to have a date on Valentines Day?

    Just because everyone is into it.

    No. Any pressure someone feels during holidays is self-inflicted. Generally speaking when it comes to Valentine's Day most men could take or leave it. Women are the ones who typically look forward to it.
    Naturally the barrage of advertising makes it difficult to ignore and if you're working in a place where multiple flowers/candy, or items are being delivered it can be a challenge to avoid the Valentine's Day blues if you aren't get anything or have no special plans.
    However the reality is most people are so consumed with their own plans that they have no interest in you and your plans. Therefore any pressure you might feel is your own doing.
    Having said that if one lives near a major metropolitan city there are lots of events geared towards singles for Valentine's Day - dances, speed dating, and Meetup.com has a ton of singles groups who sponsor events for singles to mingle. No one has to stay home alone unless (they) want to. Even with that there's nothing wrong with relaxing at home when you're comfortable in your skin.

      Thanks for the response Dashing. Even if it may sound commercial, still Valentines is a much desired fiasco in my opinion. Happy V day to you.

    Not anymore. at one time it did, but Valentines Day has lost it's magic over the years. Still, it is nice to have someone show their admiration and it depend on who that someone is.

      Maybe as we go along life it is not the celebration of the day that matters what matters is the true connection.
