V-day


That stupid holiday that is pretty much to make singles feel bad I think...honestly. All the couply crap and what day is there out there that is just for singles?? I mean I've been feeling pretty good about my situation and where I am in life but partly cause of a stupid boy and partly due to those things around that day, I actually was feeling bad about myself last night and I hate that a stupid nothing commerical holiday has that power. It's been too long (11 years I think) since I had a boyfriend around V-day so I don't know that I'd feel different if I had someone...but I honestly believe in little gifts and acts of appreciation more than one day a year...But I digress...one thing that kind of bothers me too, is when people wish you Happy Valentine's day...umm....exactly what is happy about it? My mom sent me and my siblings a greeting, saying she loved her "babies" and that was OK...but a few others saying it I wasn't OK with...particularly said stupid boy mentioned above. Unless you're dating me and with me, don't wish it for me...arghh...now, spring, you need to come as this S.A.D. is hitting me too much...of course spring sometimes gets me a bit (much as I love it there is a sadness to it too) as it's a great time of year to be with someone...ah well...It's basically been 11 years since I was with someone in spring too so I should be used to it right!! I should never have dated L, it got me back into relationship mindset!

Hey, I'm with someone and I still think it's a stupid holiday. Hope you found something good to do yesterday ... and I totally hear you on the S.A.D. This winter is HORRIBLE.

Chicago had a TON of anti-Valentine's Day events that made singles feel not left out. More than I have ever seen.

LOVES! Enjoy being single - it is so much fun if you embrace it! I never thought I would get married because I loved being single and free. Don't get me wrong I love Tom but being single was some of the best times of my life.

I agree with Nicole's comment. Enjoy being single! It is like David Spade said on an episode of "Rules Of Engagement":

"And now I am going to do whatever I feel like...all of the time!"

Being single CAN be enjoyable! I realized this valentines, that I have been single for almost 2 years now. Time flies when you're having fun... or enjoying life! It's just how you perceive it!
