Why Valentine’s Day is Great For Everybody

Ah Valentine’s Day, a day that strong-arms people into buying stuff out of guilt.

But, Valentine’s Day is GREAT! No? I thought it would be fun to show you why I think Valentine’s Day is great for everybody.

Singles That Have Their Sh*t Together

Let’s start with us.

How great is it to have a day that gives us a license to snigger at every loser that walks past us with a bunch of roses or box of Quality Street they’ve bought on special from Tesco? Or shaking our heads as we walk past a restaurant covered in pink crepe paper hearts filled with couples staring at their phones as they spend a “romantic” evening together?


Why would we want to subject ourselves to that? *Bashes head repeatedly against wall*

New Couples

Ah, the new couple. That sparkle in their eye. The honeymoon period. Everything’s fresh, new, exciting and if you listen out for it, you’ll hear, “OMG, it’s our first Valentine’s Day together!”

It really is nice when you’re in a new couple and invest in some serious romance before the bubble bursts. No?

Seasoned Couples

It brings them together. Love it or hate it, at least couples can agree to either get out of the house for an evening or bitch about how terrible Valentine’s Day is and that they don’t need a “special day” to show their love or appreciation together. 1, 2, 3 awwwwwwwwww.

The Hopeful Single

There’s always a chance that one Valentine’s Day they’ll be swept off their feet to Paris by some mythical Ryan Gosling/ Mila Kunis type character. Come on, if we don’t have hope, what do we have? My favourite part is when the hopeful single waits right up until the day before making plans thinking that Gosling/Kunis will swoop through on a rope like a pirate to take them to a 5 star restaurant.

Everyone, have an amazing Valentine’s Day whichever category (or not) you fall into.
