Valentine’s Day is not for everybody, if you resist the call of Cupid, here may be why:
Everyone knows that February 14th is the day of chocolate, roses and cards. But not everyone embraces the holiday.
Almost half of Americans describe Valentine’s Day as “overrated, while another 43% call it “romantic.”
According to the folks at Livescience.com there may be three reasons why.
1. You’re a rebel
Many perceive Valentine’s Day as corporate and consumerist, and therefore, are resistant to giving in to consumerism, and spending money on Valentine’s Day.
2. You’re not comfortable in relationships
This one is pretty much self explanatory. If you feel uncomfortable in intimate or social situations, then the ideal of a day to celebrate just that will make you feel as uncomfortable as sitting in a pile of ants.
3. You’re being a little melodramatic right now
After all, Valentine’s Day is just like any other day. It too shall pass. But you’re allowing the hype of the day to make you feel over the top dislike of the day. February 15th will come, and the 14th will be another day in the past.
