No ... it's purely commercial. One shouldn't need to be reminded to show your partner that you love them. It should be any time, any day, and not only on 14th February. So my hubby and I will be off to bootcamp tonight like any other Monday night. Doesn't mean that we love each other less.

Another  " commercial day "
 But   I  also  say  if someone  sends you a valentine  ,  accept it graciously  not with expectation ,,  thats the problem with all the commercial pressure ,, people  end up feeling obliged , or  people  expect .. thats no good ...
 And yes  also  if  someone really means  something in your life  and  you  want  to  do it from the heart  merely using the day  as a channel  to  do it  then do it ,
without obligation , without  expectation ,  without  bowing  too much to the  " commercial  aspect " 
Oh dear  I'm babbling , must be all the Valentines wished  I got that have turned  my brain to mush    16_1_231
To see  sometimes  requires that you  first believe .
