Here’s a post I wrote three years ago when I was an AFC regarding Valentine’s Day.
Back then I was a confused, frustrated misogynist. I did not understand women nor did I know how to talk to them.
I like to read these posts to see how far I’ve come. I refer to them as my “AFC Chronicles”.
I have some comments following the article.
I will be single this Valentine’s Day, in the past being single on Valentine’s Day made me sad , but this year I figured out what Valentine’s Day is all about.
First, being in a relationship doesn’t guarantee frequent sex. I know married people who procreate once a week, once every two weeks, once a month, or even less frequently. When you are single, having sex usually involves saying the right things to a member of the opposite sex while you both have a few drinks in you and that’s that. In marriage, sex is a commodity. There are strings attached to it. It is not simple, you have baggage, and it is a chess match to get it when you want it.
Valentine’s Day is for the man in a relationship who gets sex infrequently. He buys jewelry, candy, flowers for his significant other, takes her out to eat, pays for them to see a chick flick all so he can have “guaranteed” sex that night. The only “guaranteed” days for sex are your wedding night/anniversary and Valentine’s Day. Corporate America benefits from your sheer sexual depravity. You will pay any price and spend whatever money it takes to put yourself in an advantage to get great sex on your “guaranteed” night.
If you are in a relationship and you have sex frequently, Valentine’s Day is a just a plain pain in the ass. If you are a single guy, like any Holiday, Valentine’s Day is a great time to take advantage of those girls who feel sad and lonely about being single at such a time.
This article was written by a guy who was lonely during Valentine’s Day and wanted to retaliate against his married friends that he was jealous of. There was no other reason for me to be wasting my time psychoanalyzing married life at that point in my life.
I like how simple I said it was for single guys to have sex. Some conversation, some alcohol and then WHAM-BAM. IT’S ON LIKE DONKEY KONG!
How naive I was!
I used to always focus on holidays being a great time to “take advantage” of women who happen to be in an emotionally fragile state of mind at that time. I now do not “take advantage” of women in any state and I do not want anything to do with women when they are emotionally fragile. It leads to problems and headaches.
It is like a weak lion who has to prey on the old and injured gazelles in order to eat and survive because he can’t catch the strong and healthy ones. I now consider myself the king of the pride who demands only the best.
I still agree that Valentine’s Day, like all holidays, is primarily a commercial holiday. If it was truly just about expressing “love” your wallet wouldn’t have to be involved in the equation.
Companies like DeBeers and Hallmark along with the floral, chocolate and restaurant industries all reap the financial rewards and will do their part to insure for years to come that women should expect to be pampered on Valentine’s Day with their goods. The candy industry went as far as to push for a similar holiday in October called “Sweetest Day”.
When will guys join together and sprout some balls and stand up against this corporate infiltration!
I guess once it stops getting them laid
