    Even though I am happily married I hate

    No Holiday For Singles And A Day Of Tragedy For Me

    Valentine's day is basically Singles Awareness Day - a day designed to make you feel like there's something wrong with being single. If you are involved, it's another one of those days that you are supposed to celebrate not being single. For me, V-Day is a day etched in tragedy...

    I'm not sure if it's just the fact I've never

    been able to connect on a romantic scale with anyone, but it's just around this time of year I feel so bad. This year isn't so bad. I've grown apart from a destructive influence in my life (which Valentine's Day only made worse) and everything is set to be great by the later...

    I really hate Valentine's Day.

    I can't even put into words how utterly alone I feel on this day. ...It's not even a real holiday.

    Living a lie, watching myself die Valentine's

    day used to be one of my favourite days of the year. I am an incurable romantic. I am a very demonstrative, loving, caring man. I enjoy spoiling the woman I love and making sure she knows, without even the shadow of a doubt, that she and she alone is the "sweet sovereign of my...

    I Have Always Hated Valentines Day (yes All Small Letters)

    I have hated valentines day since i was in 2nd grade. I actually liked a girl and bought a special valentine for her. When she saw that it was from me, she wadded it up and threw it away and I saw her do it. She thought that I didn't see her, but I did. Not only that, but I didn...

    Can't figure out why in the world I'm dreaming

    about him. The dreams "feel" so real- always about our marriage ending though. And what's weird.. Is that HE is sad about it too (in the dream). Woke myself up by crying this morning.. When's it gonna end? What am I supposed to be learning? Freaking Valentine's Day is...

    Why do we need a special day to tell someone we

    love them. We shouldn't have to, because you should be able to show it (without trying) the other 364 days a year.

    I think it's kind of dumb.

    I understand you want a day to show who you love you love them, but shouldn't you do that everyday? What makes Valentine's Day so important? Of course these thoughts may have to do with the fact I'm single, but still. Everyone feels they need to have that a girlfriend or...

    As in every single holiday

    and even my birthday this valentines day will be no different. My husband will look at me and say" I didn't know what you wanted or even what you like. So you just go buy what you want." Really after 15 years?!

    I hate this day. Years ago,

    when I cared about it, I lit almost 100 white candles in my now-husband's bedroom as a surprise. He took one look and asked what I was going to do with all my stupid cheap candles, 'cause I was NOT allowed to leave them in HIS house! (I took them back to MY apartment and...

    Plain jealousy; it's

    that simple. Some people just get handed everything. Money, friends, the one, and much much more. Ow well, jealousy is such a stupid emotion anyways. If only I can just launch it in a black hole and not think about it. Or I could barbecue it just because I feel like barbecue...

    I really don't see the appeal

    for the holiday whether I'm single or with someone. It just seems like this one day out of the year is just for couples to be annoyingly lovey dovey and for singles looking for dates to act entitled and as if they expect something extra when going out on a date and having a...
