THE DARK SIDE OF VALENTINES DAY

By: Matt Bridgestone

Flowers, chocolates, and teddy bears are all great, but not everyone comes out smelling like roses on Valentine’s Day. Many people describe it as their least favorite day of the year.  For millions of people, it’s a reminder that they don’t have a significant other, and for millions of others, it’s a time that applies pressure to come up with lots of money for gifts and dinners they can’t afford.  Well, here is some advice from someone who has experienced all sides of this controversial holiday.  The best thing you can do if you’re in a relationship is wait till about 3 weeks before Valentine’s Day and then dump whoever you’re with.  On Valentines Day they will be lonely and realize how great you were.  Then they will take you back after the holiday and you get out of having to buy them stuff.  If you think this is too cruel remember that this is a holiday based around a baby who shoots arrows at people.
