Is Valentine’s Day Overrated?

Is Valentine’s Day overrated? Is it just another holiday that big corporations can profit off of consumers? Or is it still a special day to express genuine emotions to love ones? This holiday might still be relevant holiday in order to share nice sentiments with others. We feel that the right person can make this day worthwhile.  YHM asks two young women how they view the day of love. Morgan Bibrey, 22 | I don’t think Valentine’s Day is overrated, but I don’t think it’s a big deal either. People shouldn’t be pushed into celebrating this holiday if they aren’t interested in it. I feel both parties, male and female, should make a mutual contribution on the holiday. But what I do find annoying about this day is how single people tend to complain how they don’t have a special someone to share time with. I think what everyone should remember is that you don’t need Valentine’s Day to show love. Vanessa Estiman, 20 | It’s a nice holiday and it reminds people how important love is. People …

A Mixtape of Love: The Perfect Way to Your Valentine’s Heart

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what to get that special someone that you might want to spend the day with.  While many people choose to splurge and adore their Valentine with expensive gifts and flowers, there is always a way to avoid breaking the bank while also showing him or her how much you truly care. Mixtapes are the perfect way to show a great deal of sentiment and can also send a personal and intimate message to your significant other! Music has always had a strange and magical way of uniting and allowing people to express their love to one another, without actually conveying them with their own words. In Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012), Logan Lerman’s character, Charlie gives his love interest, Sam (played by Emma Watson), a series of mixtapes to show his love in a subtle but adorable way. A playlist of all the songs that make you think of your Valentine would certainly put a smile on their face. It shows that you …

The It Guy; Notes For Picking Prince Charming

Romance can be filled with spontaneous moments of “Aww! You shouldn’t have!” Then there are moments that are more like “I don’t know what to say.” Trust me that is not always a blissful reaction.  Instead it’s a search for words that can truthfully explain how your significant other doesn’t really understand you. You can re-make your list of all the qualities your prince charming should have a million times, but in the end it’s all about compatibility and connection. Why sit around and dream of or chase after someone who is only  “your type” when your special someone could be right before you. Here are some modest yet inspiring ways young women are making smart choices picking their “It Guy.” Ashley, 20 – When trying to find the right guy, a good place to start is just looking in the places that make you happy, like your favorite class or your favorite store. This is helpful because you’ll have something to talk about right away – your mutual interest – and it won’t seem …

Matt, 22 – Definitely got to be a bit romantic, but this date is the attention grabber, the hook, the intro paragraph to what is hopefully a long book. I don’t think it has to always be a romantic dinner, and it shouldn’t be, I would tell the girl to be open minded and to expect that it is something I know they …
