Hypnopoetics…Modern Love Poems and Hypnotic Inductions
Portland, OR (PRWEB) February 2, 2009
In order to call attention to the growing unhappiness with the annual holiday of Valentine's Day, several websites that provide Dating and Relationship products and services to the general public will be taken off-line for the day on February 14, 2009.
Phil Billitz, of 4 Quarters Technology, LLC, an Oregon Marketing and Consulting firm, says that Valentine's Day is "a waste of time and money", and "causing far more misery than happiness".
Billitz says he is not anti-romance, nor is he anti-love; he is in fact very involved in helping men and women with dating and relationship advice. But, he says that millions of people have unreasonably high expectations that are just not fulfilled on this particular holiday.
"There are lots of reasons why people have been turned off to Valentine's Day. People who have been scorned, hurt in love or have lost someone just don't want to be reminded. Others who are lonely may be even more bummed out, apathetic or figure 'who needs it?'" says Billitz. "Many guys don't get into it because giving Valentine gifts seems more like an obligation than an act of love. Often, the gifts aren't liked or appreciated - they spend lots money on gifts for women and often get nothing in return."
"For their part, women end up getting cards and gifts they don't like, often from men they don't like, and many of them only receive Valentine gifts from female friends or, worse yet, have to send cards and flowers to themselves," Billitz continues.
Billitz says he's tired of seeing men and women spending lots of money on mass-produced Valentine's gifts that don't improve their situation at all: "People will spend billions of dollars on mass-produced cards, flowers and candy that are largely ineffective at bringing love into your life."
Billitz is promoting an alternative to Valentine's Day that he calls "UnValentines" - saying that, "any day of the year except Feb. 14th" would be more appropriate for love, dating, romance and seduction.
There is additional information about Valentine's Day (Feb. 14th) at the Hub-Page "Valentine's Day - Bullets, Candy, Cards and Murder" and at UnValentine's Day. Both of these sites will be off-line on Feb. 14th as well.
