Don’t Fall Victim of Valentines Robbery in the Name of showing Love

14th February is here. To, it is the day of showing the affection they have towards their seventh ribs in full blast. On the other side, there are some few out there who have been adapting to the behavior of the desert locusts that have just invaded Uganda only to eat you up. These human locusts are hungry and many of you who seemingly in love with such ladies/ men should beware

On this day, many women collude with florists, confectioners and other related traders to turn a day that was supremely about love into opportunities to fleece men.

February 14th is a day that many women mark on their calendar with high expectations. They expect gifts and treats from men.

St Valentine’s Day was originally a celebration of love and appreciation for those whom you genuinely love.

Unfortunately, many have turned it into a day when they make all kinds of demands from men in the name of love. The tragedy about it is that most of them hardly give back. This is not to call out all women, but a staggering majority of them fall into this category.

Folks, it is time for us to give ourselves a reality check and understand that love is not measured in French perfumes, Italian shoes or chocolate covered strawberries or even five star hotels dinners.

You see a post like “better get me this ring for Valentine’s Day or else…”!! Honestly, you really need to check your priorities if the most important thing to you is what you receive on Valentine’s Day.

Why not instead spend your energy planning something to spoil your boyfriend? Why is it so one-sided? When did we as a society decide that Valentine’s Day plans fall on the man in the relationship?

What do you think?
