The days of finding cool Star Wars valentines with the best candies are over. No more paper bags hanging off the side of your desk for all your spoils of the day. Now teenage girls have higher expectations. A “join the the dark side” valentine with Darth Vader on it isn’t good enough for them. Now they want giant stuffed bears and chocolates, maybe throw some flowers in there too.
Teenage girls have this strange idea that teenage guys have money to spend on them, when most of the time we have no money at all. By the small chance we do have money, we don’t want to spend it on our girlfriend. We have better things to spend it on like video games or gas if we can drive, and after those things are taken care of there is not much leftover to spend on them.
For all the single guys out there, there is always one person you can get something for. Your mom, she raised you after all, so don’t be afraid to get a little something. It doesn’t have to be very big, you don’t even have to buy anything, Just make her a card and write something from the heart. She’ll appreciate it a lot and it’s the least you could do to thank her for all she does.
At the end of the day Valentine's day isn’t about buying the biggest flowers or the best chocolates. It’s about showing the people that you care about how much you appreciate them, whether it be a gift or just a compliment. So get out there and start showing your appreciation.
