Is Valentine’s Day a deal breaker for relationships?

By Antynet Ford

Valentine’s Day will be celebrated on Wednesday and is a day many couples long for.

This is a day most couples think of as a deal breaker to prove their love’s worth to their partners.

Valentine’s Day should not be a great deal because for example one day your partner may be broke and should not be held against them despite other days that they are there for you.

Most businesspeople say during Valentine’s Day, any gift associated with this day comes at a higher price.

“It’s just a commercialized day for people to make a profit where based on the industry you have to buy flowers and chocolates and love should be celebrated every day.” Business man Maina Njenga said.

For Maina, Valentine’s is just a normal day and he doesn’t celebrate it because he and his wife celebrate it during their anniversary on April 14th.

For others, the day is special and cannot be taken for granted.

They post their partners on social media and appreciate them as they share the day with their partners.

If you are going through a breakup on Valentine’s Day, you feel lonely and the pressure to measure up to those curated feeds can intensify those feelings.

Here are the two greatest tips on how to survive the pressure:

  1. Stay off social media –Tomorrow, social media will be flooded with images and videos of romantic gestures and this may draw your attention to the lack of a partner in your life.

Staying away from social media will protect you from the constant reminder that you just got heartbroken. Instead, use the time to focus on taking care of yourself.

  1. Treat yourself –You can decide to have a great meal, a day at the spa, or a gift you’ve been eyeing, treat yourself to something special. This is a good way to remind yourself that you deserve love and affection and it should be when you’re in a romantic relationship only, you can do it for yourself.
