I understand that the thought of Vday hurts. I agree with you that it's about having someone in your life. Our lives. The commericialism only highlights our feelings of loneliness. But it could easily be read as, "the day I make up for all the nice things we should have done for one another leading up to today."
It's certainly not the case for everyone, but in the real day to day of many relationships those moments are looked over. One day can't make up for it. And then we wonder why people don't stay together anymore.
I am the warrior.
