It's Valentines Day. Yay. Everyone is all lovey dovey and buzzing about dates, presents and what wonderfully romatic thing their sweetheart did for them. Now, I am not a completely bitter old spinster but I think I might be getting closer and closer every year. I've never really had a date for Valentine's Day unless I was in a relationship...and even then I had a boyfriends that were so inept that they couldn't even send flowers let alone try and get a dinner together.
With that said, I'm not really big on what gifts I get, being taken out or whatnot. All I ask is that you think of me. If you can put in enough effort to pick up a phone or send a few carnations; that would be enough in my book. Am I that lucky? Nope.
I am aware that I'm getting older and still single, I can deal with it. But Valentine's Day is the one day every year where I can't just deal with it because this day is a CONSTANT reminder that I'm single and that Cupid wants nothing to do with me. So, I will try to get through today with my sanity. I will ignore the explosion of hearts and flowers and all the gushy crap. (And the really crappy part is that I am a complete sappy, fairytale, movie love romatic...I make myself sick.) I will now go and eat heart shaped foods and enjoy my Singles Awareness Day.
