Asexuals have difficulty with certain aspects of Valentine's Day. An Aromantic Asexual may feel like the Scrooge of February waiting for the day to pass so they can go about their business. No historical documentation shows three spirits visiting an Aromantic Asexual on Valentine's Eve to show them the error of their ways.
The cultural backlash against the holiday applies to Asexuals and people who choose not to date or marry. Either person may find an Anti-Valentine's Day celebration to better suit their needs. Such gatherings attract a crowd, although they are hard to find in smaller towns and cities.
If there were one thing an Asexual might find solace in, it is in the ease of finding red velvet cake mixes at a local grocery store. Society has linked the color red with Valentine's Day inextricably, but the cake mixes used red food coloring to achieve this effect. Red Velvet cake contains German chocolate.
As a way to make the holiday relevant to all Asexuals, a new tradition must start. The administrator of this website puts forth a simple solution. Asexuals should eat a red velvet cake and not have sex in order to celebrate the day. The older tradition of waiting for the day after for chocolate to go on sale still remains in place.
