Tomorrow is Valentine's Day - a really big day for many people, especially to many ladies in this country and around the globe. Some of ladies may actually be pretty anxious and excited to wait for the moment to arrive, hoping to be be surprised and swept off feet by their sweetheart, lover, spouse or secret admirer from the traditional tokens of love such as fresh roses, imported dark chocolates, a getaway trip for two to a romantic destination, a marriage proposal to something which is unique, creative and one of the the kind.
Like many guys in my own species, I am not a big fan of V-day although I am not against the idea to dedicate a day to show our special and sincere appreciations to the ladies we love. In part, it's because I don't like to be put in the situation in which I have to bow to peer pressures and high expectations. My lady protests that if you can handle the large dose of risks and stresses coming from the markets volatility, why not "a little love pressure". Well, there is a huge difference between those two. To begin with, you can't compare oranges with apples as they are in dissimilar categories. Secondly , financial instruments have no heart beats, a human does. In another words, you don't get intimacy with the money the way you do with your girl, up close and personal.
Nevertheless, shrugging off few complaints, I still enjoy v-day. Primarily after spending some time to figure out and implement a new idea based up romantic mechanism that worked before, I am able to collect the rewords in a long way.
I don't know about what other people may think, I believe that to adults, V-day should be renamed as ML-Day. I suspect, each year, for a single day, largest numbers of humans may ml happily on this planet on V-day. Although ladies might prize more those romantic ways and means in the process than the final products, we, on the other hand, would prefer the actions without extensive processing time. However, at the end, two forces would balance it out themselves, delivering the goodies and making Valentine's Day a special occasion to remember.
In conclusion, no matter if you are the kind of guys like me who just want to skip the main courses to have the desert first, or you really like to milk it for all its worth, my humble thought is that for the sake of love，情人节这一天， 请把我们的手温柔安静地放在她/他的怀中，感觉那一份温暖。
