From a business point of view I can understand it. Its a real opportunity to make money! Scratch that... make a HELL LOT of money :) But pity us poor buggers who have to shell out for presents, flowers and dinner... sigh...
BUT as they say, one can never put a price on the happiness of your partner... trust me... a happy gf/wife/partner is the best thing you could ever wish for. If she is happy... trust me you will be happy too! :)
You can always tell yourself that you don't need to spend that kind of money on her AND she may agree with you... BUT remember she is a woman and a woman LOVEs to be wooed and showered with gifts and love... OOh and if you can do it in her office it would be EVEN better. You are sooo gonna get some that night! hahaha :)
NAh... I'm not trying to put a hamper on the day nor the need to spend the money on her. Please do so.. I think I will too :) Like I said be fore a happy GF is a happy Ken!
So Happy valentine's day to you all!
I'll share something I got from one of my friends...
To My Friends Who Are...........SINGLE
Love is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it eludes you. But
if you just let it fly, it will come to you when you least expect it. Love can
make you happy but often it hurts, but love's only special when you give it
to someone who is really worth it. So take your time and choose the best.
To My Friends Who Are............NOT SO SINGLE
Love isn't about becoming somebody else's 'perfect person.' It's about
finding someone who helps you become the best person you can be.
To My Friends Who Are............PLAYBOY/GIRL TYPE
Never say 'I love you' if you don't care. Never talk about feelings if they
aren't there. Never touch a life if you mean to break a heart. Never look
in the eye when all you do is lie. The cruelest thing a guy can do to a girl is
to let her fall in love when he doesn't intend to catch her fall and it works
To My Friends Who Are............MARRIED
Love is not about 'it's your fault', but 'I'm sorry.' Not 'where are you',
but 'I'm right here.' Not 'how could you', but 'I understand.' Not 'I
wish you were', but 'I'm thankful you are.'
To My Friends Who Are............ENGAGED
The true measure of compatibility is not the years spent together but how
good you are for each other.
To My Friends Who Are............HEARTBROKEN
Heartbreaks last as long as you want and cut as deep as you allow them to
go. The challenge is not how to survive heartbreaks but to learn from them.
To My Friends Who Are............NAIVE
How to be in love: Fall but don't stumble, be consistent but not too
persistent, share and never be unfair, understand and try not to demand,
and get hurt but never keep the pain.
To My Friends Who Are............POSSESSIVE
It breaks your heart to see the one you love happy with someone else but
it's more painful to know that the one you love is unhappy with you.
To My Friends Who Are............AFRAID TO CONFESS
Love hurts when you break up with someone. It hurts even more when
someone breaks up with you. But love hurts the most when the person you
love has no idea how you feel.
To My Friends Who Are............STILL HOLDING ON
A sad thing about life is when you meet someone and fall in love, only to
find out in the end that it was never meant to be and that you have wasted years on someone who wasn't worth it.
If he isn't worth it now,
he's not going to be worth it a year or 10 years from now. Let go.....
TO ALL MY FRIENDS.......
My wish for you is a man/woman whose love is honest, strong, mature,
never-changing, uplifting, protective, encouraging, rewarding and unselfish. ^_^
