Mostly for the non-single guys, but still embraced by all
Here in Dallas, word is getting around of a new holiday falling on Leap Day, February 29; a holiday I am quickly embracing. The holiday is mostly for the guys who shell out time, money and creativity for that hallmark day of Valentine's year after year. So, our reward for our hard work, besides a satisfied woman, is a day dedicated to men once every four years. General census from the ladies I've talked to claim that it's a fair, recognizable holiday. Sweet!
That's great and all, but here's the catch-22 that I see with this:
Ladies who do not feel they received a Valentine's day equal or greater than their expectations, we as men, can fully expect a very upset girlfriend or wife and, in result, be expected to shell out more money, time and creativity to make them happy making the whole event far more expensive and time-consuming; this is common knowledge. However, if we as men do not receive the attention we think we deserve on this once-in-four-years event, we are expected, by the ladies, to "get over it, it's not that big of a deal. Be a man!" Not fair by any means, but it's common knowledge.
I intend to still try to milk this day for all it's worth, the best I can expect from my girl is to not get in an argument since I can pull the "Day of the Man" card if there's any bit of tension. I believe it's a hard-earned day, it's free so I say take advantage for all it's worth!
Spread the word!!!
