Create a Different Kind of Memory this Valentine’s Day!


If you have not seen people posting plans, girls getting giddy, or the endless love commercials yet, Valentine’s day is approaching again!  Every February, the thing that is bothersome to most women about Valentine’s Day is not the whole “whose my valentine this year” thing, but the countless movies the media seems to promote each year that will be premiering right on Valentine’s Day!  For those lucky enough to have a Valentine for the day, what man genuinely wants to see another sappy love story, chick flick, unrealistic love story based movie?! No guy wants to sit through two hours of that, and neither should you!  They may do it, but come on let’s not put guys through that torture.  Besides its only going to cause your head to go into bat shit crazy mode on why your Valentine’s date was not as perfect as the movie you are watching, all while your valentine sits next to you bored out of his mind.  Perfect date night right!? Try something new this year! Instead of dinner and a normal movie, try dinner at a drive in movie theatre, or even dinner and some fun at Downtown Disney! This Valentine’s Day, don’t spend it in any typical fashion, get out there and make it the most memorable night and get rid of the stereotype that Valentine’s Day is the worst day of the year.

On the other hand, for the single ladies, go out and do something you will not ever forget because who ever remembers the nights that you fell asleep early?! Save the sad sob! Why watch a movie that will caused hated on life all because there is no current personal love story? Even if the movie trailer looks happy, what if the movie turns out sad? Now you’re crying not only because you are lonely but also because you are a sucker for love stories.  It continues to boggle the minds of women why such movies are put out at this time. For crying out loud, put it out after February 14th!
