What Valentine’s Day is really about (and it isn't love).
If Valentine’s Day were about love, we’d be celebrating small, personal gestures instead of grand, showy ones. If Valentine’s Day were about love, women wouldn’t brag about what their men did for them, and women wouldn’t complain about what their men didn’t do.
Valentine’s Day is yet another passive-aggressive competition between women (like how they dress, and pretty much everything else). It’s about a woman being able to tell her girlfriends that her Significant Other loves her more than their S.O. does.
It’s basic one-upsmanship. Women are just trying to outdo their “competitors” (ie, other women).
Secure, sane women in love don’t really care about grand, expensive gestures. Insecure, crazy bitches do. They care because they want/need a man to validate their worth as a human being. (“He put all this effort/money into a gift, I must not be the useless loser I think I am and loath every day of my life!”)
So this Valentine’s Day, don’t get your useless loser chocolate or flowers, get her a damn therapist.
