It’s not so much that I hate romance, or love, or relationships. It’s that after awhile, Valentine’s Day gets so sweet, so saccharine, that you begin to feel like you’ve eaten too many conversation hearts. If you’re single, it’s the time when all your singleness comes home to you, what with the big boxes of heart-shaped candy and endless romantic movies on every single TV station.
If you’re in a relationship, it’s a time of great turmoil, when you have to make certain to buy cards, buy flowers (or expect flowers), make reservations, find out that you waited too long to make reservations, or argue about what movie you’re going to watch on TV. It’s just a hassle and there tons of expectations for all of us.
