Ah, Valentine's Day, when we show those we love the extent of our affections the old-fashioned way -- with gifts! Fortunately, we have multiple option...
The Millennial conundrum: we love technology, but we despise what it's done to romance. Yes, we are witty, easily bored and in need of constant stimulation, but has love really changed? Can Valentine's Day still be the same?
We may be uncomfortable receiving if it came with strings attached when growing up. We may have received compliments only when we accomplished something, like winning at sports or achieving good grades.
