Why We Miss The ‘Old’ Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day sometimes feels like it’s more complicated than it’s worth. If you’re in a relationship, what should you do to show your significant other that you love them? How much is too much? Is it necessary to put in more effort on Valentine’s Day than on any other day of the year? And if you’re single, should you try to go out and meet someone? Should you curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and a sappy rom-com? Or should you try to forget that Valentine’s Day exists altogether?

If we’re being perfectly honest, all the exciting, mature Valentine’s Day visions we dreamed up as kids didn’t turn out to be that exciting after all. Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a fun, frilly celebration of love, but instead it’s become an excuse to stress out about either being in a relationship or not being a relationship. Discount chocolate sales and romantic movie marathons aside, we don’t think we’d miss Valentine’s Day if it suddenly and mysteriously went away.

FORA-1-1: Be Your Own Meditation Guru
