Why do women send themselves flowers on Valentine’s Day?

‘If you want a job done, you might as well do it yourself’, as the old saying goes. That might be why 15 percent of women apparently send themselves flowers every Valentine’s Day.

A survey of thousands of single ladies across the globe by date.com found out there is a lot of self-love out there.

When asked if they had ever invented a Valentine an incredible 75 percent said yes, with many admitting sending flowers, signing made-up cards and buying chocolates.

When asked why, 65 percent of the women said they wanted to feel special, 15 percent claimed it was so the men in their office would notice them and 5 percent so they did not feel lonely and depressed.

Natalie Taylor, a women empowerment speaker, told the The Jamaica Observer there is nothing wrong with women treating themselves on Valentine’s Day.

She said, “Valentine’s Day is a day that marketing platforms use to get more sales for their products, whether diamonds, chocolates or roses. Everyone wants to feel important and with that said I don’t see why a woman, any time of the year, including Valentine’s Day if she is single, is not able to send herself some flowers.” She added, “A woman can go out, accomplish something and treat herself to a nice lunch, dinner, outfit, pair of shoes, movies or get her nails done, so, too, she can treat herself by buying herself some flowers or by buying herself a spa day. I just don’t agree that she should be waiting for Valentine’s Day to do this.”
