V-Day

Time again for the annual re-post of this Classic:

_____________________________________________

Nothing says “I love you” like saturated fat and slutty lingerie.

In the U.S. businesses expect men to spend on average $186 for Valentine’s day – over three times the average a woman spends on a man. Explain to me why women own V-Day? If it’s a “celebration of romantic love” why should it be an annual shit test?

Lets clarify a few things about Vagintines Day since it’s become probably the most irksome manifestation of westernized/commercialized romanticism. V-Day is far and away the most vulgar display of female entitlement. On no occasion – even a woman’s birthday or her wedding anniversary – is this sense of entitlement more pronounced and our refined commercialization of this entitlement/expectation simply twists the knife in further for men to live up to this with ZERO expectation or entitlement to any reciprocation. He gets ‘lucky‘ if his romantic offerings are sufficient to appease her (social) media fueled expectations of ‘good enough’ to reward him with sex.

And exploit the media does. I can’t get away from it; Every radio station, every TV show, every newspaper and magazine article. Go to askmen.com right now, I guarantee there’s a “how not to fuck up this year’s V-Day for her” article there.

I listened to a talk radio show that I regularly tune into on my commute home on Friday; it was about what not buy this year. “Don’t buy lingerie, she knows it’s really a gift for you” or “Don’t pick up flowers at the gas station, women know they’re cheap”, and “God forbid you pick up some cheap jewlery or stop at one of those roadside urchins selling prepared flower baskets or arrangements – women know you didn’t think about it until you were on the way home.” On my way to work this morning, different show, same list. [Side Note: Never buy a woman lingerie, she will never be happy with it. A woman has to do this on her own to “feel sexy”, make sure it fits her right, and it’s HER IDEA. When you buy it for her it’s contrived and it is overt and overt is often the kiss of death for a try-hard guy.]

Why wouldn’t women have these expectiations? They’re relentlessly marketed to as the primary consumers in western culture. V-Day isn’t a celebration of romantic love, it’s a machine that drives a wedge of expectation and entitlement in between otherwise happy, relatively contented couples.

I’m not down on the idea of a special occasion to celebrate love (I actually proposed to Mrs. Tomassi on V-Day 18 years ago), I am down on the twisted expectations that have been perverted into it that puts a woman on some pedestal of entitlement by commercialized popularization of this feminized ideal. Why isn’t there an official “fuck your boyfriend like a wild animal” holiday or a list of criteria to meet that’ll make his day special? “Show him how appreciative you are of all his dependability and hard work this year – buy some lingerie ON YOUR OWN and pretend that you like him cuming in your mouth on his special day!” If women are so liberated and interested in equality, one would think this would be the first thing to occur to them. We need a special day to make us apprecitae each other?

Gentlemen, beware of falling into the trap of negotiating desire for Valentine’s Day performance. Don’t be lulled into thinking Game is any less necessary on V-Day. In fact, I can’t think of a more direct illustration of how the feminine encourages the transaction of men’s goods and services in exchange for a woman’s sexuality than reserving a ‘special day’ just for it. Remember, you cannot negotiate genuine desire; and with the right art, a bag of Skittles can be a more romantic gesture than all the sonnets, flowers and jewelry your inner romantic soul will ever be appreciated for by her.

Note to PUAs

Valentine’s Day is ripe with opportunity for an enterprising Man with the ability to see it. Go hit the clubs tomorrow night, particularly the ones that cater to a 25-40 y.o. affluent crowd. There’s a million different venues you can hit, all with promotions to help single ladies feel better about not having a date – usually with genderist drink specials to help your approach too. You’ll notice impromptu GNOs (girl’s night out) set up just for this occasion to prove to themselves “they don’t need men to have a good time.” A good PUA couldn’t arrange a better opportunity to hook up in multiple sets.

Don’t go play ‘pity friend’ with any girl on V-Day, don’t be the “you’re such a great friend” consolation date.. Call up your best wing man and sarge on the best night of the year to sarge. Wedding receptions aren’t even as good as V-Day for this.

V-Day in the Matrix

Just in case you weren’t already convinced of the complete totality of media control that the Matrix has, let me offer yet one more Valentine’s Day example:

I was in a grocery store this weekend picking up something to grill and thought it would be a convenient time to pick up a Valentine’s Card for my wife since it’s coming this week. So I meander over to the greeting cards section to sift this years crop of mushy sentiment.  Much to my disgust the only cards available in the “For My Wife” section of the Valentines Cards (and I mean ONLY cards available) come in two types:

A.) The sentimental, “My life was nothing before you and would be nothing without you”, tripe that reduces a man to a simpering, codependent who owes his very existence to the woman who deigned to marry the poor soul.

B.)The “humorous” Valentine that is essentially the greeting card equivalent of Everybody Loves Raymond or Family Guy. These are basically intended to beg for a wife’s forgiveness for all of his uniquely male faults and foibles, that only she can solve by virtue of her infallible feminine wiles. Judging from the ‘humorous’ intent of these cards, no man is capable of feeding himself much less ask for direction or leave a toilet seat down, but on “her special day” this card is meant to prompt an appologetic laugh.

Needless to say I’ll be making my own card this year, but for fuck’s sake, how can we ever get a break from this shit when we’re ankle-bitten at every opportunity? You simply cannot buy a card that doesn’t force a man to be self-depricating.

“Woodward said a controlling and manipulative man forced her into “sex slavery,” according to her appeal letter”

“… she noted that she earned the highest rating of “exemplary” last school year in DISD’s distinguished teacher program and was a nominee for district teacher of the year.”

Some words are overused to the point they are a cliche (particularly when used in a certain context). Quality is one of the many, many. It comes across like an e-Harmony ad.

But it is true the cost to gains equation for choosing a life partner is different from choosing a booty call. Or it should be. Unless you want to see your quality of life go down faster than a hooker’s head on payday Friday in a brothel on the Titanic.

@Marko Many guys are talking at you and we are all trying to get a concept across to you that will break the myth of “symmetry” Men and woman are fundamentally different. You can define your own goals to harmonize with those of a woman, but if you become your mental point of origin you will see quickly that your woman (quality or otherwise) has different goals. For example, I think I have a QW, meaning that as far as 40 you women go, she is better looking, has a generally amiable attitude towards me, serves my needs well (sex,… Read more »

Pull some different threads here at TRM together. First: …Quality Woman… Second: “They are all girls”. So actually sometimes the topic should be Quality Girl? Hmmm? I’ve found that using the term “girl” around the 30-something professional women first gets some bristling, like “women!” but a bit of cocky-funny “Oh, right WOOOOmen!” in a sort of Dr. Evil voice brings the giggles, and then…no complaints about the G word.

” . . . guys here don’t want to confer re Long Game.” See the last year’s worth of comments and note that although game has relevance to the topic of this site, it isn’t a game site. “Sentient” See the man who has been, over the past year or so, the most ardent supporter of LTR in a “to the victor go the spoils Darwinian” mode on TRM. “My wife and I explicitly put in the wedding vows . . .” See Briffault’s Law. “Rollo. What are your thoughts on “commitment” . . .” See The Rational Male. I… Read more »

Quality is not very easy to pin down. Robert Pirsig investigated it philosophically at one point in his life. The price he paid was to be labeled clinically paranoid schizophrenic and clinically depressed. When he psychologically healed from that (and he snapped out of it pretty damn well with the help of ECT, and his brain wasn’t so scrambled later on) he wrote about the Metaphysics of Quality in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintainance. Quality comes before everything in this dualistic life, not after the fact. It is not a problem in searching for quality, it is a… Read more »

Keep in mind, Pirsig’s ideas are merely a theory of reality. A model. Like most things metaphysical.

@Playdontpay Only you can really know how to play it with your son so far away. Seeing him 5 times a year must be difficult. I didn’t intend to number close in front of him to start with, we were just all chatting. If I’d told him I was moving in for the kill he’d have hated it and clammed up. Instead we just shot the breeze and I got him comfortable talking to a random hot bird. I didn’t hit her for the number until we got to the door … actually she’s ignored my text and I never… Read more »

RE: Emily Hart Video Who cares what this woman, or the angry mgtow has to say, really? I mean, c’mon….who gives a fuck and why? Fellas, FOCUS. Remember, billions of people on the planet. Don’t get sidetracked by nonsensical gobbledygook. Nothing about this video is important to a man’s self improvement. Learn to ignore. The problem is, society traps men in the FI soundstage. This is a huge part of men’s problem. Recognize it and break yourself free. Idgaf how much money she makes fucking about, Don’t count other folks money. Personally, most highly paid people are not worth their… Read more »

There is a V Day for men: March 14, Steak-and-Blowjob day. All we need now is for the consumer media to officially recognize its equalist mindset.

I find it interesting how “St. Valentine’s Day” became “Valentine’s Day”. I’ll bet if you were to ask a young person on the street who “Valentine” was you would probably get a confused look in return. It kind of reminds me of how the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. became Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I shouldn’t be too surprised. I’ve met more than a few secular families who “celebrate Christmas”, yet their kids have pretty much no idea of who Jesus of Nazareth is; nor what his connection is with Christmas. Interesting world we live in. Or as the… Read more »

Married for 26 years. I haven’t bought a Valentine’s anything in probably 20 years. My wife ‘gets’ it. “Why are you supposed to love me more one day out of the year?”. We don’t play the game and don’t celebrate a silly Hallmark holiday.
