Valentine’s Day is the first major calendar event after New Year and suffice to say, a lot of people are excited about it. While there are some who feel that Valentine’s Day can be quite exploitative, the spirit of the event should always be taken into mind. Still, one dating expert claims that a lot of harassment happens during Valentines Day, even from something as simple as sending cards to people.


Annabelle Knight is a published and well-known sex and dating expert who has had several media exposures. Of course, she was bound to appear again on air since it is Valentine’s Day and she is an expert in such matters. So she was invited over to Good Morning Britain to express her opinion and advice on dating matters. Here’s Knight doing her work:

However, to everyone’s surprise, Knight somehow equated sending Valentines Day cards to people you’re not officially dating as harassment.


“Sending out Valentine’s cards to people who (you aren’t dating) is like cold calling, it’s just a little bit unnecessary. It’s hiding behind a holiday to express your intent – if you can’t say the words at any other time of year then you probably shouldn’t say them on Valentine’s Day,” so says Knight.


Additionally, Knight believes that “Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love. It’s just something that is between two people who are romantically involved, whether that’s long term, short term, or very new.” Not everyone is on Knight’s side regarding her views, though. Another dating expert gave her own opinion to counter that of Knight’s:

What do you think of Knight’s opinion on asking someone out or being romantic on Valentine’s Day? Feel free to discuss in the comments.
