So what’s the big deal with valentine’s day? From my experience, i think valentine’s day is more harmful than helpful to couples across the country. Every year the expectations grow higher and higher for the significant other. No longer does the chocolates/roses combination satisfy the lady. Men are now obliged to turn to more extravegant means like jewelry, clothing, high-end dinners, etc. Valentines Day, in my eyes, should be the celebration of a couples love for eachother, not a contest of how much money was spent.
