Idea of romance

If you know anything about me, you probably know I dislike a lot of holidays. One of the worst offenders for me is Valentine's day. To be more clear, I dislike the way our society expresses love in general.
One day in biology lab, we were introduced to a type of sponge that is made up of a fiberglass-like skeleton. It is known as the glass sponge or the Venus' flower basket. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus%27_Flower_Basket
A pair of mated shrimp would live and breed in one of these sponges. The tube would eventually close up as the sponge grew, trapping the shrimp inside. A Venus' flower basket with a pair of dead shrimp inside used to be a romantic gesture or wedding gift because it symbolized a pair of lovers dying in each others arms.
I may have been the only person in the class that found that to be a very thoughtful and romantic gift. Apparently thoughtless severed plant genitals that symbolize fertility and "I totally want to nail you tonight" makes me think the relationship is going to last about as long as the flowers.
With this and my passion for biology, I can see this happening someday if I get a wife.
