Valentine’s Day is a great concept and an interesting idea to celebrate and express your love to someone you are interested in or someone you are living with. It is a day when couples exchange gifts, flowers and a lot of other things as a sign of love and appreciation.
Not everyone celebrates this day though and not all of us can get a boyfriend who either believes in Valentine’s Day or wants to celebrate it as much as we want to. Instead of brooding about having a boyfriend who does not share your enthusiasm or beliefs for the day, you can do the following things on Valentine’s Day to make yourself feel better.
Just because he does not believe in celebrating Valentine’s Day does not mean that he is not in love with you or does not love you enough. Compromise on your wants and desires for the day. When you expect less or nothing, there are no chances of you getting disappointed and the day will also be like any other normal day. Do not bug him into celebrating it just because you are into it.
Valentine’s Day is a day of love; where you celebrate the love you have for others. The others do not necessarily have to be a boyfriend alone. You can also express your love for your parents or your friends. And if your boyfriend does not want to be a part of the fun, leave him alone and have a good time with your parent and your friends.
It is not always him that has to get flowers or gifts for you on Valentine’s Day. If he doesn’t believe in it, you can get him stuff yourself. Even if he does not care for the day, he will sure be happy to get something from you.
Try and think different for a year. See if you can see the day the way he looks at it. If he think it is frivolous and just a commercial exploitation of people, you should also try to see it from that viewpoint. Maybe there is a chance that you will also see his point and not want to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
You do not always have to be the understanding girlfriend. You can always create a scene and be the drama queen for the day and get him to do whatever you want him to do. There are chances he will stay mad at you for a while for forcing him to celebrate the day, but sometimes all is fair in love and war.
Finally, If you know he loves you, you wouldn’t really care that he does special things for you on one particular day. If he does not believe in it, he needs to be respected for it. Let go of it and find interesting things to do to take your mind off it.
