HAPPY RELATIONSHIP EVALUATION TIME DAY!
That’s how it occurs to me right now. It appears that some people (mostly women) use Valentine’s day to gauge the love of their mate, more than any other day of the year, even there anniversary.
Somehow we have made Valentines Day the official day for couples to evaluate their relationship, and it has been cleverly disguised as a holiday of love.
It once was a holiday of love, before we had any idea of what love was. Once we figured out what love was, or what we thought love was, Valentines Day went from something we couldn’t wait to experience , to something that make men run for the hills and when cringe with joyous anticipation and impending doom. It wasn’t always that way.
When I was in middle school I remember one Valentines Day I got 12 cards form different girls in my classes, plus another three from my teachers. I thought I was the shit! 12 girls at school all wanted me to be there valentine. “You couldn’t tell me nothing.”
I took those cards home and taped them to my wall in my bed room over my bed, and stared at them for several weeks until I took them down.I shared a room with my younger brother, I loved rubbing this in my brothers face, cause he only got three valentines day cards from girls.
I thought this really meant something, Believing that 12 different girls were in love with me was a really good feeling, even when on some level I knew I didn’t really know what love was. It truly was a good feeling.
Now fast forward to adulthood. I have to ask the men to work hard to stay present after this next line. Imagine if you got twelve valentine day cards as an adult. Men and woman imagine if you had twelve people in love with you. Imagine just believing that you have 12 people in love with you. Imagine having 12 people chasing you. Imagine 12 woman in your class, all liking you. Imagine 12 woman at your job all wanting you. Does any of this sound exciting to you?
If it does consider yourself a drama king or drama queen. 12 woman doing anything to me all at the same time is really scary. I have thought of every possible scenario and none of them have a happy ending.
Me and 12 beautiful, playboy bunny woman get stranded on an island, I’m dead. 12 woman and me on a board or committee, I’m invisible. 12 woman and me at a party, I get no peace. It never shows up good.
12 woman buy me Valentines Day gifts and I have a girlfriend or wife, really not good. BAD EVALUATION! It will take about 12 months of counseling to work thru something that came up on some holiday that I didn’t even like in the first place.
So let me leave you with this. Valentine Day wasn’t intend to be what it has become to be. If you need Valentines Day to know that your significant other loves you, it’s going to take more than some made up holiday, candies and flowers to get your relationship in order.
What does Valentines Day mean to you?
Tune in tomorrow and hear my new idea for Valentines Day. I have an Idea that might make it fun for men at least.
