Just read this, and was ready for a bunch of tripe about the why Valentine's Day is awful, but I was very pleasantly surprised to finally hear someone be positive about the meaning of the day. Finally. Thank you for this. Well done..

Haha. I love this. I totally agree, I don't really understand the point of all the negativity surrounding Valentines Day.

I've always liked valentines day! I think it's actually fun, even if I'm single

This article rambles on without making a real point. Run on sentences seem to be this writer's forte.

Oh you just took me back to 1st grade-and then high school ugh-terrible! So happy to be in that last stage, the one where you found the right love and can now just appreciate the feeling. Thanks for the read!

I know Valentine's Day sometimes makes people uneasy, but I can't stand when people get negative about it. All it does is make you sound like a Debbie Downer or a Negaitve Nancy. Imagine having a wonderful day planned with your sweetie and the people around you are having the worst attitude about it?

I think we should be showing our love to our friends and lovers EVERY day. Not just V-day!

If you don't like Valentines Day there is GREAT news! International Pat Benatar Day is February 16th...join on Facebook. Wasn't it Pat Benatar who told us "Love is a Battlefield??" ;)

I totally agree. I have never cared when it was Valentines Day and I was single. My dating house mates always did something special and it never made me feel jealous. I was happy they were so in love. Now I have a lovely boyfriend, I like to do something for Valentines Day. Even if it's only small just because it's nice to be around him and doing something enjoyable.
