Do you feel that society pressures both men and women to be in relationships on Valentine’s Day or they’ll be considered sad, lonely, ugly, or pathetic by others?
“Yes, I totally agree! All you have to do is turn on the TV. And see the Valentine’s Day propaganda thrown at you about being ‘in a relationship.’ All you have to do is walk in a store or even Queens Center mall and see all the ads about LOOK IT’S HEART SHAPED THIS or OH WE CAN DATE THAT. So you’re going to make me feel bad about having no valentine…Whatever!
