The Complications of Valentine's Day

Quote of The Day: Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence.
~ Erich Fromm

This has possibly been the best Valentine's Day I ever had. In fact, each year has managed to out-do the previous one. But the more my boyfriend showers me with love and presents and more presents...the more I become disappointed with myself. My greatest worry is that I'm not living up to be the best girlfriend he can have. 

The problem with Valentine's Day is that it has become a monkey-poop corporate holiday that is bleeding couples dry. Boxes of chocolate and expensive dinners don't symbolize love at all. As the matter of fact...if you truly love your significant otter, you should be taking them out for a walk! Or in my case...barre classes!

Ladies...you know your man truly loves you if he's willing to spend time with you at the barre, stretching himself in ways he never thought he could. I don't want my boyfriend to think he has to spend money at a fancy restaurant to express his love. Women should not be the type to expect flowers and fine-dining either. If men continue to use money to buy love, it becomes painfully over-played, and will become anything BUT romantic.


在美国,一过情人节时,情侣习惯出去吃丰盛的晚餐。男方通常会献给女方贵重的礼物和巧克力。

但是,巧克力跟爱情一点儿关系都没有,反而会让女生发胖。这也是为什么美国的糖尿病的几率这么高。如果你真的爱护你的对象,就应该带她/他出去锻炼身体。。。对吧?

这才是最甜蜜秀恩爱的方法,还不用花太多的钱!
