Today is Valentines! The day where your singlehood is made painfully apparent to you (if you're still single) or the day where business will try to suck as much money out of you in the name of love (if you're a boyfriend). And if you're a girl and in a relationship, well good for you, because unlike those spinsters or bachelors out there, and unlike the boyfriend beside you, all you need to do is to enjoy and let yourself be pampered. Because somehow somewhere Valentines has become a day for girlfriends to be treated like queen, instead of really celebrating love as how they would put it.
Sure, some girls might make a simple card or gifts for their boyfriend, but in essence, the guys are expected to do much more than just a simple card or gift for their girl. If there's no trip to an expensive restaurant accompanied by a bouquet of flowers, that's it for you. You would be hearing non-stop comparisons with her friend's boyfriend who arranged for a candlelight dinner at the most expensive restaurant in town along with a long walk at the beach followed by a romantic diamond ring gift at the end.
So single guys out there, be happy that you're still single this Valentines. Because while you can still DOTA freely on your computer, some of your not so lucky peers was dragged out to expensive restaurants, forced to wear nice clothes and dress up just for the sake of keeping their girlfriends happy. And not to forget how some evil scheming business choose to raise the price of things just for this day. So be glad because DOTA is still free.
As for me, I have a date with my assignments. So see ya.
