Geek Ink Thinks: Happy Valentines Day! But just so you know…

…Valentines Day is stupid.

No, I am not writing this as a bitter, lonely, single man. Single and randy? Yes, but not bitter and lonely. Well, maybe a little bit lonely when I’m feeling particularly randy. So with that little disclaimer out of the way, let me explain very clearly why Valentines Day is without a doubt, the dumbest “holiday” to celebrate:

If you give a shit about someone, you find a way to make time for them and regularly remind them they are an important part of your life, regardless of if you are family, friends, or are exchanging bodily fluids. These reminders could be something as simple as asking them if something is wrong when they seem to be feeling down, or inviting them over to share some food, or making sure to invite them to stuff, even if you haven’t seen or heard from them in a while.

There. That’s it. Buying into the consumerist version of Valentines Day is a bloody massive waste of money and energy. Save yourself the trouble and just find someone who appreciates you for not being a dickhead and who takes the trouble to notice the little things. And if you really like doing something grand for someone, why wait until Valentines Day? Is there any reason you can’t do it today?

  1. Valentine’s Day is actually my favourite day of the year – no jokes. I know it’s turned into a consumerist payday where florists make enough money off roses to rival some drug dealers but I love the day for its deeper meaning. I’m a hopeless romantic and I love the idea of “love”. I don’t think love is all about big romantic gestures once a year but about the 363 days that happen before this day. So your significant other should always feel special but Vday is just a nice day to go all out and maybe pick up the slack that’s come with the routine of regular life.
