How Hollywood Ruined Valentine's Day

I don't want to sound sexist, but let's face the simple fact that women are generally more romantic than men. Okay, maybe that's inaccurate. Maybe we're just more sentimental about romance. We remember first dates, first kisses, first texts and even first fights. We remember anniversaries, birthdays and holidays. What we can't seem to forget and wish we could are the countless birthdays, New Year's Eve's and Valentine's Days we have spent alone devouring a carton of Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey (which is exactly what we'll feel like after we devour it) and crying into our pillow. 

In February 2010, Warner Brothers and Garry Marshall released a sappy movie about Valentine’s Day, unimaginatively entitled Valentine’s Day with a star-studded cast of heart throb men like Bradley Cooper (yum), Aston Kutcher (double yum), and Grey’s Anatomy’s McDreamy Patrick Dempsey to pull on the heartstrings of every single and unhappily married woman in America. Unfortunately, there seems to be money in making women miserable, so Garry Marshall reinvented the not so exciting wheel, employing some of the same ensemble cast, this past December with a movie about New Year’s Eve, aptly called New Year’s Eve. Genius! Who does give him the inspiration for his titles?

My Lonely Valentine

This year, I’m alone for Valentine’s Day. Not without suitors, but also not at a point where I would celebrate the event and get all lovey-dovey and sentimental with one particular person. I imagine there are a lot of single men and women in the same boat. So what do we do on Valentine’s Day? Do we acknowledge it or ignore it. Going to a movie or dinner is not an option. Restaurants will have those tragically romantic prix fix dinners at outrageous prices, and movies will be crowded and sold out across the board.

Here’s a quick list of things to do for yourself this Valentine’s Day: eat chocolate, spray yourself in perfume, put on some sexy lingerie and take yourself to dinner. Women can do this too! Seriously, if you’re alone this Valentine’s Day, you should do something to love and appreciate yourself. If you’re a woman, this is a slam dunk.

Top 5 Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

“Dear Santa…I mean Cupid.  I have been a sexy, hot girlfriend all year…” Hmm. How exactly does one write a Valentine’s Day gift wish list? Now, I think I speak on behalf of 99.9% of all women when I say that men just don’t seem to get the significance of Valentine’s Day. All too often, they wimp out on the gift department or ignore Valentine’s Day all together. Not cool. Negative cool. Think ‘Saudi Arabia in the summer’ cool. Valentine’s Day, albeit a Hallmark Holiday (proof in the pudding - every year around 1 billion Valentine’s cards are sent around the world, making Valentine’s day the second most popular greeting card–giving occasion after Christmas), is of utmost importance to women and simply cannot be ignored if you’re a man in a relationship or actively pursuing one. I know you guys hate shopping, so here’s a list of the five most popular Valentine’s Day gifts. No need to think outside the chocolate box with this one; they are the top five, because they get the job done!
