Valentine's Day

Another year, another Valentine's Day. God, how I despise this holiday. A commercial fabrication to force people to buy tacky gifts and overpriced roses for one another to "show" how much they care. Shouldn't you do considerate gestures for your significant other throughout the year? I would rather date someone who made an effort to show me how much he cared with random gifts or cards than only on the one day I would expect it. Of course, I am single and bitter, which exacerbates the mindset. Valentine's Day has always made me feel like there must be something wrong with me. Why else would no one want to spend an insane amount of money on tacky heart-shaped candy and a sappy card for me? Ugh. I'll be happy when it's March.
