The craze about valentines creeps in as early as mid-January and this year was no different. What was special about it though was the fact that the 14th February 2018 was also Ash Wednesday and a crucial football fixture.This created a lot of questions; what would this mean for love birds?

Several memes were created implying that ladies should just forget about the valentines. This begs the question. Are women the ones who benefit from valentines?  I think much has been made about turning this in to a ladies’ affair that men actually want to hide away. As usual, memes are there to remind us. The most hilarious one for me was one titled:

A MAN WOULD DO ANYTHING TO BREAK UP WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND BEFORE VALENTINES
So, a girl serves her man eggs. 
Man: I brought two eggs one to be boiled. You boiled the one you were to fry and fried the one you were to boil. With that, it’s over between us. (Lol)
Can it get to this?

In my opinion, love is a two way affair. Real love is felt when both partners feel involved and therefore as much as the thought of valentines has over the years evolved to the woman’s benefit, that’s not how it should be.We want to be loved and feel loved yes, but the man must also need to feel the same affirmation and affection.  Let’s hear your thoughts about Valentine’s day below. To get a male perspective on this, click HERE to read Mitchell’s post.
