Ah, Valentine's Day, the day to celebrate love, the day to spend time with your special someone...Huge eye roll. Having been single for so many years, Valentine's Day was always a nauseating day to watch other people buy flowers and candy while everything is awash in a sea of pink and red. Gross. Now that I'm married it is somewhat better, but I think I still have lingering PTSD from Valentine's Days of old. In all honesty, I have had boyfriends on Valentine's Day before, but I've pretty much always thought Valentine's Day was a little silly. It is fun though to have a day that it is perfectly acceptable to eat all the chocolate you want. It is not fun to get the "Oh, what are you doing for V-Day, wait, oh I'm so sorry..." trails the voice of judgment and pity for being single. It is almost like being in a relationship causes people to believe that being single is some sort of genetic defect. This behavior makes me crazy. My advice is if you are single, take a hot bath, relax, and treat yourself well. If you are in a relationship, be nice, watch your words, and don't judge the single person - they may be much happier than you think, maybe even happier than you. So for everyone out there Happy (ish) Valentine's Day.
|Perfect for Valentine's Day|
