CHIVALRY SHOULD NOT BE DEAD
By Chesz Dylan
February 14, 2019. I am certain that every lovers and anyone who knows how to love knew this day. It is one of those dates that should never be forgotten, aside from of course, birthdays and anniversaries. It is the day where color “red” is rampant, images of heart in every corners of the streets and flooding in your social media feeds. The only day where hotels and motels are fully-booked, and restaurants are fully-reserved. Yep, it’s Valentine’s Day!

Every year it is somehow part of the tradition to give chocolates and flowers to your beloved. For girls, some are liberated enough to take the initiative of giving their boyfriends a gift, rather than the norm. It is very common that you could see partners HHWW (Holding Hands While Walking) everywhere. Believe me, unlike any ordinary days, it is only during Valentines that you will encounter overrated sweetness and PDA (Public Display of Affection) at the malls, at the parks, at the restaurants and going in the hotels. Excessive cheesiness alert for those who are single. (IKR?) So, you might think of cancelling your personal engagements if you are a single who isn’t comfortable on such sights.

Just as how lovers dearly loved each other, it is also important to consider to be safe. How? By keeping yourself protected. Recently, HIV (Human immunodeficiency Virus) cases has doubled if not tripled this last decade. Ages from 13-25 are the ages where high widespread of AIDS patients contracted the disease. Due to the liberation of the society, pre-marital sex and same sex has been common to the point where everyone is doing it. To the point where even at a young age, they are well-experienced. Just like a commodity that can be easily bought, at a cheap price. Keep yourself protected – use contraceptives and wear condoms. The generation today is so aggressive in love and courtship. Virginity today is never an issue, unlike during the 90s and early 2000s where couples are more conservative and preferred the virgins as their spouses. Well, we might differ in opinion but affairs has been easy and more common nowadays. Thanks to the television shows and soap operas promoting affairs and divorces, the youths has been influenced (sarcasm intended).

At the end of the day, it is your relationship. For girls, it is your body while for boys it is your chivalry. Keeping away from pre-marital sex and getting to know each other are still a few of the best practices in love and courtship.
