I don't always care for this day. Not because I'm a single bitch. I love people being in love and although I envy them, I'm happy for them.
I know most crazy fangirls and spiteful nerds and such people (the real bitches) won't understand. You want the rest of the world to be as miserable as you.
The reason I dislike this is because it's a day about spending money. Not for all, but for many. I believe that, if you love a person, you don't need a specific day to "prove" it. You shouldn't need one and shouldn't only show it then.
But some people do celebrate this the right way. They do something special and symbolic. They don't try to "prove" their love just because of the day. They simply take a moment to relax from the difficulties of this busy life and appreciate each other. And that type of celebrating is always wonderful.
So, to all truly good people with love in their hearts, be it involved or single, Happy Valentine's Day. Appreciate the people you have and don't despair if you don't have someone. Life changes in the blink of an eye.
In Finland, they call this "Friend's Day" (Ystävänpäivä). So, be it a relative, a friend, a lover or even a pet, give them a nice warm hug.
