Funny Observation

I just realized that I've never spent Valentine's Day with a boyfriend, even though I've been dating Josh for nearly 5 years! Every year we've been in separate states and it's always been on a weekday. While in college I was usually in a theater performance on that day, anyway (you know, V-Day monologues).
This year he works until 5, and I go to work at five. We could do stuff afterward, but it doesn't matter to me too much. He keeps asking if we are exchanging gifts, and I told him that he shouldn't feel forced to buy something for me for some arbitrary holiday. I'd actually rather not get a gift because I'd rather have him save the money.
I've never really cared much for the holiday anyway. It seems so ridiculous, a commercialized "Hallmark holiday". I know who loves me and who I love, and what matters more to me is the little daily reminders, the surprises, and our own little holidays. And I have plenty of that with Josh :)

I think that it'd be foolish and greedy to ask someone for presents. I find it hilarious when girls pout and get angry with their boyfriend because their gifts "aren't nice enough". I mean, how much meaning would those gifts really have it the person was coerced to buy them? Obviously those girls are really just after the gifts, which is pretty damn shallow.

Hehe... Anyway, I'm just bored and this thought entered my mind. I feel really lucky to have a guy that understands :)

Re:
hey sash!
Good to hear from you. :)
I can't believe I haven't posted in here for so long. Things are a bit hectic lately, but all is well.
I'm sure that you'll meet your special someone, you deserve it.
I hope things are going well with you, too.
Hopefully I'll get back into the swing of posting here again regularly, I hate when I let it go like this.
Anyway, thanks for your hello!

Yeah, I don't update my livejournal as often as I'd like to either... so I can relate. :o)
Well, I don't know if I will meet my "Mr Right", but I sure hope I do. I haven't had much luck with men so far tho', so I hope I am not doomed to have a crappy love life 4ever. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
