I see all these dumb Valentine’s Day posts about single women who want to “cancel” Valentine’s Day because they are not in a relationship. STOP! It’s one stupid day! Guess what you can do? You can buy yourself chocolate— you don’t need a man to do that for you. You can celebrate you on the day. You can tell your friends you care, your family, your co-workers., etc. STOP feeling that you need to be in a relationship for the WRONG reasons. If you can’t even LOVE yourself, how do you expect others to love you?
Do people even know the story of St. Valentine? Saint Valentine was a Roman priest who performed secret weddings against the wishes of the authorities in the third century. Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death. THIS is WHAT we are CELEBRATING on Valentine’s Day!! Not very romantic, huh?
This also got me thinking about some NFL players and all the secret relationships they have due to Tinder and other dating apps (also social media) Why do we insist on having secret relationships in the first place?
Is a secret relationship, one where you also have great sex, but in fear of being judged, never admit our true emotions and feelings to friends because men prefer superficial, and fear real intimacy? As I do my podcast, “The Recordings of A Fan Girl #Sarcasm, we will continue to talk about that and how this stupid idea that a NFL football player is “forced” into this fake ideal world that they NEED to be with a supermodel… that if they are seen with a REAL, down-to-Earth, the girl next door type, they will ridiculed.
