While, yes, admittedly, it is that, but more importantly, it’s what you make of it. Love is amazing, and we don’t need one day set aside to show someone how much we care. But we have it, so use it.
Society thought we needed a day to be cheesy, to be lame, to show just how head-over heels we truly are for that one specail person. You can be a cynic and piss n’ moan about how ‘its a scam’ or you can suck it up, and admit that love, no matter how you look at it, can never be a scam.
So on this Valentine’s day, I invite you to grab that special someone and tell them how you feel. At most, you’ll make someone’s day all the more specail. At least, your self-referential irony will score you +3 to Hipster Cred. <3
