Love, love, love—Valentines’ Day is almost upon us! And it’s time for some Valentines Day treats!
I have always looked forward to Valentines’ Day because, you know, it’s the one time where love is celebrated for the whole year. Although it’s partially crazy that when love can be celebrated every day, we human beings decided to have “a day” for that, and it’s still something people look forward to.
It’s just ridiculous and kind of sad at the same time. For 6 years, Mix and I haven’t really celebrated Valentines’ Day simply because we’re little deviants. We preferred to celebrate in our own time and in our own terms. No flowers. No chocolates. Just a lot of fucking around all day, laughing at how crazy people are and binge eating later. Two years through the inevitable LDR, we have no choice but to celebrate Valentines Day apart. Sacrifices.
Needless to say, Valentine’s Day is a time to be happy about being in a relationship or mope about being single. It’s a time for realizing you haven’t said “I Love You” to the people you hold dearest to your heart. This is the one day to wear the fuck out of that pink dress you decided to wear before that heartless bastard decided to ditch you.
It’s the perfect time to be bitter seeing all the lovey dovey couples everywhere, shrug your shoulders, and say “Meh. Mag-bebreak din kayo.” It’s your chance to indulge in Ben and Jerry’s and romantic movies, and cry your heart out to the kind of loneliness in love you can never relate to. It’s the ultimate day to be extra mean and get away with it. haha
Kidding aside, love it or hate it, Valentines’ Day is still something to look forward to. Hello? What other day can you find hearts flying everywhere? People are extra nice to you because they’re expecting a chocolate or a favor from you. It’s a heart-themed Christmas. It’s cheesy and crazy at the same time. And I love it.
Whether you’re single or in a relationship (or in a weirdly-complicated, impossibly-entangled relationship), there’s always time for something sweet during the month of love. Smother yourself or your loved ones with these fun and yummy hearty treats this month!
