With valentine’s day around the corner, many people still believe it’s supposed to be the holiday built around guys courting girls, bringing her roses and buying her chocolates.
This is lovely because which girl doesn’t want to be spoiled like that? but come to think of it, who is it that makes these rules? Do we really believe that the men in our lives don’t deserve to be spoiled too? Everyone wants to feel that warm sense of appreciation – even the men in our lives.
The pressure to exchange meaningful gifts to symbolise our love for one another is overwhelming. Our brains have become scrambled. The insight that we thought we had into each other’s wants and needs is shattered by an onslaught of adverts for cuddly toys and power tools.
