Happy Valentine's Day, you poor schmucks
I really feel sorry for boys on Valentine's Day. Seriously. I'm certainly not one of those girls that is bitter about the holiday, or feeling sorry for myself that I didn't get flowers (I got a pretty new pin from my mom, can't do better than that!). I just think that guys have enough of a bad time trying not to screw things up with their ladies on a regular basis, and that V-day adds immense pressure to that problem. What sort of flowers to buy? How much to spend? Are we in a teddy bear or jewelry phase of the relationship? It seems quite unfair to imagine that some average guy is going to be able to pour out everything he thinks and feels about a girl in the form of gifts specifically given on February 14th. That is just mean. So for all you poor guys out there...good luck, you're going to need it.
