Valentine's Day, a requiem for forgetful romantics

Yup, today is Valentine’s Day and the regularly scheduled grinches have made their appearances denouncing the commercial exploitation this day has become. If you are one of those people, you’re missing the point but fear not, there is hope yet.

Valentine’s Day isn’t just the overly schmaltzy opportunity to exploit you commercially by guilting you into buying fake roses, heart shaped boxes of chocolates and mass produced furry animals imported from China. For those people who forget the everyday romance V Day cynics suggest should be in your life all the time, Valentine’s Day is a little nudge to make a point of letting the special people in your life know you care about them.

There are lots of different ways to express how you care and they don’t have to be the fake roses, the chocs and furry animals (but those are ok too). Sometimes all it takes is a seemingly innocuous gesture that let’s that special person know you are thinking about him or her. So if you are not the everyday romantic (and so few people are), let Valentine’s Day be a little reminder to reach out in your special way.
