Valentine Pressure

Do I have a date?  But the question for me is, “should I really have to have one?” People are expecting everyone to go out with someone special, go on a date, receive roses or flowers or chocolates. Come to think of it, that’s the very commercialized image of this day. We are feeling pressured to receive or give something because that’s what they want us to feel. So that marketer’s could get something from your paycheck.  Im a marketing graduate, I should know.

But what’s funny is that deep inside we are all feeling pressured, specially the single ones. Haha

Rolette said: “ sa dinami-dami ng stalker mo, wala man lang nag-ask sayo ng date? Haha”

Then it got me thinking, should I go out on Saturday? Boylet1 keeps on asking me for a date even after three times of rejection. I don’t want to go out with him just for the sake of having a date on valentines day. What about ___ from school? He said he likes me maybe he’d ask me. But still, the idea of it doesn’t feel right.

From the Internet, here’s the meaning of valentines day:

noun. Valentines day- a day for the exchange of tokens of affection

Going back to Rolette’s question, I don’t give a damn if those stalkers (whatever you want to call them) don’t ask me for a date. I don’t want them to, because I have a problem letting other people down. If ever, I only want to go out with (insert name here). Haha.. Yikes.
