Valentine's Day is an interesting holiday. It's a day for love and romance that has it's origins in martyrs and really weird pagan rituals. Throw in the St Valentines Day Massacre and it's a wonder there's anything romantic about the day at all! It's also one of those confusing days for guys who wonder, "Is a card and flowers enough?" "Is dinner and jewelry clever enough?" "Is a home-cooked dinner and a bottle of wine sweet, or cheap?" Lets face it, most guys really want to do the right thing, we just have trouble every now and then knowing what the right thing is. They didn't teach us much in middle school about what women think, and what they like. We did learn a lot about what a wet towel can do to someones backside in the shower and how to make body sounds with your armpit. So, consider this an appeal from a middle-aged adolescent who needs your help. What is the appropriate gift for Valentines Day? Is a gift necessary at all, or do you women think like most men that Valentines Day is a conspiracy created by greeting card companys and flower shops to reduce inventory? Please, post your thoughts and help us all. Seems like every day should be Valentines Day if you're in love, not just one day a year. But don't take my word for it.
