[CHAT] Valentine's, Schmalentine's

With Valentine's Day coming up and the stores being filled with flowers and chocolates to sell, it's time to get a little romantic. Valentine's Day makes itself very apparent when it near arguably rivals Christmas even though it's celebrated by a lot less people.

Heya Everyone!

 

Tonight, we are talking about that one day in February where we celebrate all things love. Some people call it Valentine’s Day, I call it Tuesday.

 

n

 

But don’t be put off by that, we are very accepting here and will be talking all things pro- and anti- valentine’s day.

 

If at all you find this conversation difficult, distressing or you feel like you need to talk to someone, please don’t hesitate to call lifeline (13 11 12) or Kids Helpline (1800 55 1800).

 

If you are new or need a refresher of our community guidelines, you can find them here.

 

So without further ado, here is our first question:

 

How do you feel about Valentines day?


My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

Hey everyone! I'm going to have such boring answers because I don't care about romance at all Smiley Tongue


How do you feel about Valentines day?
I don't feel anything about it. I really don't give any focus to it at all, I mean at school it was really annoying (and kind of made me sad, because I never got anything) but now that I'm out of school, it's really chill. I wouldn't even notice it really, just as a oh yeah, it's that.

How do you feel about Valentines day?

 

I think as a concept it's pretty neat, although I can see how for a lot of people it could be tough. It hasn't been a very significant day in my life so far Smiley Tongue

Hey @Stealth_ninja and @stonepixie!

 

How do you feel about Valentine's Day?

 

As someone who's never been in a relationship, I've never had cause to be overly excited by Valentine's Day or to look forward to it. However, I can understand the appeal for those who are in a happy relationship and enjoy the opportunity to lavish their loved one/ones with affection. That being said, I think it's important to show the people we love that we love them everyday, not just on this one holiday. In addition, the emphasis on romantic love could be difficult for some people to deal with, for various reasons, and I don't like that. 

My freedom is an agreement with myself. It's an acceptance and love for who I am that isn't dependent on performance or the will of other people - Renee Yohe
