The Abhorred V-Day

It's almost like D-Day to some single people. I've never understood how they could detest the day so much. It's just another day to me.

Although I can't say that I HAVEN'T wanted romance in my life. Because yes, it's true, I have.

But I also have never had such romance and have never had a Valentine, never been taken out for the supposed most romantic day of the year. Is that why I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything? Is that why I don't mind not being with someone again this year?

I'm not sure why I don't feel unloved at the thought of NOT having a Valentine. I don't feel an extra pang of single awareness. I enjoy seeing all the nice Valentine decorations. I enjoy sending Valentine cards and wishes to everyone. I would buy all my girls flowers if I could afford such things.

I would love to make everyone's Valentine's Day a wonderful day. A day that they don't feel alone, a day where it's just another day, or a day where they do feel loved and know that they have a Valentine.

It's not possible to do that, but I hope I can at least bring a smile to their faces.... !!

And chins up to all you single people. Valentine's Day is not a day just for those who are 'in love'. Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate wherever you are in love, in life, in happiness. And if you are with someone, love them. If you are single, be proud. Enjoy the day. Live it up and realize that there's nothing wrong with being single. One day, if you so wish, you may not be anymore. But for now - be single and live that life to the fullest of your potential. It's a fantastic day!!

Here's an article to help those in whatever stages of relationships celebrate V-Day.


And remember - it's V-Day NOT D-Day . . .

Or, just celebrate the fact that there is love out there and you may well find it someday.

It is like that quote from a church leader (can't remember which one) "we can't stop talking about families just because people are single...families is one of the sources of our greatest joy and we don't just want to erase it" (paraphrased of course)
