    I Dread Valentine's Day!!!

    Okay so I am thinking about V'Day coming up soon.  I have already seen the stores covered up with everything getting ready for the big "day".  I am in a marriage that lacks any romance/intimacy at all.  But let's have a holiday to make me feel worse. ...

    Hate It Actually.

    Sono solo. I'm alone. I think Valentine's Day is just an excuse to make all single people feel like crap and think they're lame.... And it works! All the single people are sitting alone at home thinking about how much they would love for someone to ask them to be their valentine...
