Season 2/Episode 6: Is Valentine’s Day Necessary?

In All Seriousness

Valentine’s Day: A day of Giving

In this week’s episode, Jill and Tony discuss whether lovers should concern themselves with Valentine’s Day.

Tony urged listeners to love, love, love, whether it’s your mate or a total stranger.

Meanwhile, Jill reminded listeners that Valentine’s Day is not about you; show that you care about others.

As always, both have more advice:

  •  If you love Valentine’s Day, and your partner doesn’t, don’t be afraid to let your mate know what would make you happy on this one day.
  •  If you are the type to compare your relationships with what others post about theirs, stay away from social media that day.
  •  Remember that Valentine’s Day is just one day. Consider showing others you care about them regularly.

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day this year? What has been your favorite Valentine’s Day to date? Why? Please leave your response in the comments section.

We’re still hoping to hear what topics you’d like for us to discuss in our episodes.

Do you need a relationship whisperer in your life? Remember that we are here for you in that regard as well.

    My plans are to send my family and friends cards and to buy myself a bouquet of balloons to put on the fire place! I will probably send myself a card through the mail! I will also call a few of my dad’s elderly friends to say hello.

      Diane, what a lovely way to commemorate the day. We are sure your cards and calls will make the recipients feel special. We hope you feel loved, too. Thanks for listening to our podcast and for commenting. We love it, no pun intended.

      1. My husband and I realized long ago that we are both bad at planning, so we took the pressure off and lowered the expectations for one another on holidays. We are going on a lunch date for Valentines Day while our kids are at school. We have 2 girls, and my husband always does something special for them.

        Hi Leejuana! Thanks for commenting. We love your plan for Valentine’s Day and that your husband also does something special for your daughters. It’s never to early to be treated like royalty. Love it!

    I love Valentine’s Day and so does Denis. It’s wonderful when you have a great husband or boy/girlfriend. The only thing about it is those without someone special in their lives, may find it a sad day. Jill’s advice to get out of yourself and show friends and family how much you care is excellent. Ideally that would alleviate much potential for sadness. And also to stay away from social media! Talk about something that could rub salt in a wound.

    Even with such good advice, a person with no romantic prospects, maybe especially a young person might still find it a hard day. But here it is, and it’s here to stay–I guess we’ve been celebrating in this country since the 1700s. I’m sure it was meant to remind us what we have and not what we don’t have, so there again, to remember others is such good advice.

    Denis and are going to Flemings, our favorite restaurant for celebrations, and I love flowers, so that’s fun. I’ve always thought of it as a day for just Denis and I, but this year, I’m going to take your advice and reach out to others.

    1. @jillccwrites2 says:

      Mary, we like that both you and Denis love Valentine’s Day, and your plan for this year sounds lovely.

      Your point about young people feeling sad on the holiday is certainly valid. Jill overheard her students talk about how Valentine’s Day tends to overwhelm them because they are uncertain about how others view them. That made Jill sad because our youths tend to need others to validate them. Jill hopes they outgrow that.

      Thanks again for supporting us and taking the time to comment. We enjoy hearing from you.
