By: Future Point | 12-Feb-2019Views : 2008
While there is not even an iota of doubt about the fact that Love is the best thing that can happen to anyone, there is also a factor of pomp & show that often takes on the superficial appearance of Love. Today we are playing the devil's advocate by presenting singles' take on Valentine's Day. So those of you who are gung-ho about Valentine's Day and are getting annoyed at us for labelling Valentine's Day as overrated, just cool your jets! We are merely presenting the views of single people. So as per single people, Valentine's Day is overrated because:
It's just a Fashion
Singles think that Valentine's Day is just a fashion that is prevalent all over the world and has little or no element of genuinely felt feelings of the heart.
A Commercial Game
Singles also believe that at the end of the Day, this occasion is just propelling a multi-million dollar consumption sector by boosting the sale & purchase of goods & services such as gifts, restaurant sales etcetera.
Distortion of History
This Day started as remembering Saint Valentine, who loved humankind immensely but in a platonic way. However, with time Valentine's Day was commercialized and took on a form & theme centered around Love between a man and a woman. So it signals distortion of history for a materialistic, adulterous, and manipulative agenda.
Diminishes the Essence of True Love
True Love does not need a particular day or time of the year to find genuine expression. So why chain the essence of true Love all year round and let it loose at a predefined time to find superficial or pressurized appearance.
Induces Inferiority Complex
The kind of pressure that Valentine's Day exerts on an individual to be in a relationship just because it has become such a raging trend worldwide induces a sense of inferiority in a human being who is single. Proposing on Valentine's Day and garnering the acceptance of your "beloved" or bringing gifts, going on a date with your partner has become a social prescription that been affecting many on the psychological plane.
Promotes Fake Proposals
In the end, don't forget one thing -
"Live Life to the Fullest".
