You know I could not let the
dummiest stupidest commercial idiotic day day of hearts candy and love pass by with out having a rant about it…sorry welcome to the mind of a single almost 30 year old women people suck it up and read about it…..so there
So yeah Valentines day. Yep I feel a little sick in my mouth every-time I have to say it or type it. There is no urban myth about this day and single people in particular single women. The day is the shittiest day in creation if you are a single women. It is shittier then spending Christmas or New Years alone. At least with those days friends call you and wish you merry Christmas and happy new year. Friends buy you lovely presents. On Valentines day …its like you have TB or the Plague…” No one go near the single person it could be contagious!!! steer clear!!”
The funny thing is I am not a overly sentimental person or even HUGELY romantic . I like the gesture and the thought behind someone doing something special for you. I also have to be the only single women in the world that seriously has never received chocolate nor flowers on Valentines day …I am so serious when I type that. I am 29 years old have dated fairly frequently and been in long term relationship since the age of 18 and I have NEVER received either of them from a guy …crushing
But you know what Valentines day is one day out of 365 of them. It is a single day and it should not be the single day in the year that single people feel like losers and leper’s.
So this year I am going to ignore it. I am single I have struck out as yet to find the elusive and foreign creature that is a boyfriend BEFORE the dreaded V day. So I will laugh on Valentines days I will not be all sad and pathetic ( OK maybe I will be just a tiny bit but its not like I would actually show that vulnerability to any tom dick and harry) I will pretend that this is just February 14th 2008 the 29th one I have lived through on this earth. It is just a day in a slew of other days.
P.S yes secretly I would love to be someones Valentine and yes I would love to get candy and flowers and adoration …am I going to get it …Hmmm I am thinking some how not likely
