Love Advice From Older People on Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is almost here and some of your older family members and friends may give you false advice. While Valentine's Day is a money making holiday they will promote it and make you feel that in order to have love you need money.

Valentine's Day is all about celebrating the day with the person you love. Older people may tell you that the guy has to take you out to dinner or you could only see him at night. If you really care about him does it really matter what time you see him?

Not all guys have a lot of money. It depends what age bracket they are in or how financially secure they are. If a doctor takes his wife to the Plaza you can't expect your 22 year old boyfriend who is out of college and has a part time job while he is looking for a new one to do the same. If you really love the guy you are with you won't put pressure on him.

Valentine's Day is also another day. In 24 hours it will all be over. It is one of Hallmark's most profitable days. It is very commercialized. You shouldn't tell someone you love them or show them how much you care about them one day out of the year. You should do it everyday. Everyday you should let the person know how lucky you are to have them in your life. Do nice things for them and treat them right. When you have someone you care about, money does not matter.

So if you have older people putting pressure on you for Valentine's Day don't listen to them. Just spend time with the one you love. When you really love someone all you want to do is spend time with them. You can't put a price on true love.
