Supermarkets are stocking various Valentine gifts, but many of them are just too expensive for majority of guys and babes who as we know now are really financially challenged in Nigeria and most of them are unemployed. Therefore they cannot afford expensive Valentine gifts for their sweethearts.
This is the time to humble girlfriends that are too demanding.
Of course wise boys and men avoid dating covetous and greedy girls and women who don't care how guys make their money to impress them and the day the good times stop, these greedy babes move on to more buoyant men. And lest we forget, they don't care about love and sacrifices. They just want to suck you dry like vampires.
Don't let any girlfriend make you borrow or even steal for Valentine.
Valentine is even one of the best times to know who truly loves you or not and the best gift for Valentine is the priceless gift of pure and true love and it is more precious than diamond, gold or any other precious gem.
And lest we forget true love is not free, because it comes with the greatest sacrifice, the sacrifice of a life time. True love can cost you your life like in Romeo and Juliet and the greatest love sacrifice of all, God sacrificing His only begotten son for our sakes. That is why the Holy Bible said, "His love surpasses all knowledge", because nothing else compares to His love. And today is Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent) when all Roman Catholic Christians begin fasting and praying, the season of preparation for the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday. And any true Roman Catholic Christian will not abuse and misuse the St. Valentine's Day by messing around night clubs and any dalliance of carnal romance.
The Lent will definitely affect the way Roman Catholics will spend their Valentine's Day.
