I told Hawks that women are not as keen on the idea of Valentines Day as men think they are. Hence the poll. Honestly you would want to naturally agree with the thought since we, as women, are usually so swoony over any amount of wooage, right?
Welcome to the Anti-Valentine Spectacular... I give you real-life *random quotes on VDay*
- A Chick's Rant: Valentine's Day sucks for women, too. Just because there's chocolate doesn't mean it still doesn't suck. Lots of us don't have dates and have to buy our own fucking chocolate anyhow. And then we just get fatter than we already are. So it just sucks. Thanks for listening.
- Paige's Rant: valentine's day....love......all that crap, sure it's great if you have it but if you don't it sucks to be you. i know that. everyone gets so hyped up about the perfect gift or their most memorable love and you're sitting there listening with a broken heart wondering why you never have great times like this. valentine's day is just another excuse to lower self-esteem, too. seriously...i mean you feel like totally worthless if you don't have a valentine and you get all depressed watching mushy gushy love movies all day eating chocolate until you get sick just to chase away all the stupid feelings all the sweet actors and actresses have that seem un-gettable to you.....in the immediate future at least....blah valentines day it's a joke. get over it cupid we hate you.
- Krista's Rant: Valentine's Day SUCKS! Being a female does not automatically make me love Valentine's Day. We get pissed off about being alone on a "holiday" that celebrates love and relationships just as much as any guy. Weather you are a guy or a girl doesn't make a difference. Loneliness is loneliness and it doesn't matter your gender. It hurts to be reminded that you aren't celebrating and aren't being celebrated on a holiday that is supposed to be about love. Valentine's is now what I make it to be. Valentine's Day is now a "holiday" meant for getting crocked and not giving a flying fu*k that you are not in a relationship. It will happen for us when it's supposed to. So until then, raise you glasses, bottles, or cans, and say "FUCK OFF Saint Valentine!"
- Another Rant : Valentine's Day is the worst! Every Valentine's Day I have known whether I had a significant other or have been alone has totally sucked. If you have a guy in your life they just buy you things so you will have sex with them and they always assume you wear a size "small" in any lingerie they buy you, so you end up spilling out of the outfit which of course the guy loves! I tried to cheer myself up today since it's the day before V-Day and I am single. I went to get a pedicure and manicure and ended up surrounded by women bragging about where their boyfriends were taking them on the BIG DAY. So I got bummed out that I have no plans and decided to go buy myself some cute sleepwear at a lingerie store. I ended up sidestepping around confused men picking out lingerie for their wives/girlfriends or whatever. I actually saw a guy tell his wife the ugly 100% red polka dot button down pajama outfit she tried on was sexy! He had to be lying b/c they were totally GROOVY and geeky looking! I guess a guy can't say the wrong thing the day before Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day Day sucks b/c the guys are in it to get sex and the girls just want to brag to their friends how big their gift was or how expensive the restaurant was. CUPID BITES!!!!!!!!
So what if you are not alone this Vday? Are you part of the 55%? If you can, describe your best Vday memory and your worst... go ahead, don't be shy. There's a comment section for a reason.
