Isn't it another reason to spend money on gifts etc?

Where is the value? get bunch of flowers whenever you feel with an handwritten note to loved one... it's invaluable anyday then why picking a particular date?

Valentine day as such is overrating as far as expression of love is concerned...and less to spend in money then feeling is real value...for that matter even marking particular dates/days doesn't count. No?



Yeah, completely agree with you. A person doesn't need a certain date and time to show the one they love how much they love them.

Besides, I think, it means more when a person does something romantic for the one they love on their own whim rather than because some overly commercialized holiday is coaxing them to do it.

There is nothing wrong with a day that celebrates love. Love is one of the most coveted and cherished of all emotions. Truly it deserves a day to celebrate it.

Ideally we shower our loved ones with affection everyday and show how much we love them. Let's face it though, in our fast paced lives we rarely take time to show affection. We are always taking the people in our lives for granted. In a perfect world everyday would be Valentines. But it is nice to have a day that really reminds us how lucky we are to love and be loved.

However, I completely detest the ugly commercial propaganda Valentine's Day has become. It is either oversexed or overdramatized for commercial value. Seriously, love is not about colognes, expensive dinners, lingerie, jewelry and all the crap money can buy. Love is a very special emotion, express it in your own very special way.

Finally there are so many different kinds of love. Valentine's day has become a romantic holiday, when the truth is there are all kinds of love, not just romantic love. So while you do something for your girlfriend/boyfriend - why not go tell your parents how much you love them. When was the last time you hugged your mom and told her how much you appreciated her. Tell a friend or a sibling that you miss them.

No one should feel lonely and unloved this day. Why not make sure every one in your life feels wanted and special, through a thoughtful reminded that you are there always thinking and caring for them. Is that not a completely refreshing perspective love and a better way to celebrated it.

It is not necessary for a special day for  people in love, if you are in love every day is for love.

I saw that feature last night, it was sad and disturbing. One thing that left me confused was were they escort services or prostitutes. The news feature uses both terms, but escorts usually just accompany and do not have sex, the maximum they may do is a strip tease. It is still companionship for sale, but there is a difference. Many women are more comfortable being escorts rather than prostitutes.

In my opinion the biggest reason for people to hire escorts is pressure. People get teased, chided or questioned for being single especially on Valentine's day. As if by some miracle everyone should be hooked up on that day. When I was in college in India there were a couple of guys and girls who would hire escorts (NOT prostitutes) to accompany them to parties and clubs simply because they did not want to feel left out or separated from friends who all had 'Valentine's Dates'. In the States also many people will turn to escorts for prom dates, wedding dates etc because of a high stigma attached to being single and all the endless grilling some singles face. Not all these people who hire escorts are lusty individuals looking for sex, many are people just desperate to fit in.

That is why I get upset at the commercial hype around Valentine's day. It makes good people do ridiculous and stupid things. People need to realize the most important thing that love cannot be rushed, bought or forced. It takes time and patience. Perhaps a single person celebrates Valetine's better by understanding the value of waiting for the right person and right time, than the bunch of idiots who rush to find romantic link ups.

valentines day is for lovers - right,or did the meaning just changed ... to guys getting diamonds for girls... Confused

i mean i look forward for the day to make my valentine feel special about it, it can also be biryani that i make  LOL, i mean its like saying i blah blah (the real words only for my valentine LOL ) but in a special way....

why are we stressing on emptying guys pockets and looting diamonds from them,
even girls got to give good things to guys they love...Big smile

anyway i don't think the day matters so much anyway, but when everyone is buying red heart ballons mera dil hai ki manta naheen, aur valentine ka dil chahta hai.... Big smile
