Valentine’s Day is around the corner

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I couldn’t help but not want to turn that corner because I know what’s there. Because I’m single on this February 14, there will be nothing waiting for me. Tradition, I guess.

Last year was mostly a romantic day. It was spent in New York. The weather was sunny. Lunch was eaten at Pastis. Shopping was done in the Village. And, a massive fight was started in SoHo because of an incredibly selfish act (done by someone who wasn’t me). The rest of the day was a wash because of the argument between someone who would do anything for the happiness of another, and someone who wouldn’t acknowledge everything the other one did for them.

I don’t want that this year, but I also don’t want to be alone.

Yes, Valentine’s Day is a day like any other but the whole point of it is to enjoy it with someone you love. I have a hard time finding someone to spend my days with someone I like, but that’s another story.

There won’t be any cards, flowers, chocolates, or romantic dinners/walks/etc. for me this year, but it’s not like I’ve had that in years past. I’ll partake in the day like everyone else who is single. It’s not like I haven’t done it for over 20 years. Maybe that can be my tradition on the 14th of February.

Valentine's day in not meant to be spent just with someone you love, but with also the people you love. You can still have a nice dinner or walk with friends. Do something nice for yourself. Go see a movie, buy yourself a flower or next year give me your address, I'll send you a card! Have a great day and do something nice. You deserve it!

i can understand that u r in pain and hurting but also do understand that u have brought this pain upon ur own self. why do u have to love someone and then be expecting him to acknowledge it? r u loving the person bcoz u want self gratification of being so noble and caring and loving and having everything that a loving husband should have? or r u loving the person just for 'love'? u can be the sun in ur own solar system but that wont give u any warmth. u can feel love only by loving ur own self and ur partner as one. when u buy something for ur self u do not thank ur self and the same applies for ur loved one too. if u want this 'thanks' and 'appreciation' then u better just have a dog bcoz that's what u r looking forward too. look inside u and see what u really want bcoz u r so caught up in the pretentious and artificial world that u r losing sight of who u are. i know that u r a lovely person with a beautiful heart but also know that u r in pain. love urself and open up to being a real human being. will say a prayer for u. stay happy always and don't complain. just love.
