    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. ...

    I'm perfectly alright being alone

    and such. I just don't like seeing lovey dovey couples acting extra sweet, as if telling me that I'm never going to experience that. Besides that, though, I'm alright. Perfectly alright. But then last year, my grandmother passed away. Just days before Valentine's. I didn't...

    It Will Never Be Same

    I used to love Valentine's day. Love romance, doing things for the special someone. Not anymore. I was supposed to out of town at a party for friend, but it didn't gel. My wife never came home from, she had said something about going out with her cousin. I just knew... Drank all...

    I have in the past not thought much about

    valentines day. It was never anything special but I knew I was loved every day. So everyday was special. Everyday was valentines day. I miss my Valentine, but thank you to my ep friends who helped make my day :-) a little less lonesome

    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...

    There is no story to tell. I'm 47 and I never had a valentine ever. To me the day has no significance. I guess to those that do maybe. But to me? No:(
