    I'm not going to lie.

    I dislike it because I personally know what it's like to be alone on Valentines Day. I remember this one particular Valentines Day moment and it's haunted me ever since it's happened. I was feeling alone, fairly jealous, angry and sorry for myself. I sat in Starbucks, looking...

    But a lot of people need to feel special.

    I'm going to a nursing home and help hang decorations for a "dance" at lunchtime. For all the residents whose families couldn't get them or stay for a long visit, I can put a smile on someone's face. I might even stay for the dance so someone can keep me smiling :)

    Still single and wanting to be with someone;

    all the Valentine's Days worth mentioning are parties in elementary school although they were always the same.

    The holiday itself is fine.

    If you want to spend a romantic evening with your partner go ahead. But I don't like the way schools turn it into a competition. Like in grade school the popular kids got tons candy and the less popular got much less. Just because I'm aromantic doesn't mean I don't like candy...

    Valentine's day should just be cancelled,

    there is absolutely no reason in the world for such a stupid day. When I was single it was just a big, fat reminder of how alone I was, but even if you're in a relationship, if you place importance on the day it brings nothing good. People get expectations built up of what...

    Ok there's really no reason to hate it.

    Other than the obnoxious couples who are glued to each other. But do something for yourself, buy yourself chocolate, get yourself a teddy bear, make yourself a nice dinner. Enjoy your freedom! Treat yo self! Also, do something kind for someone because we could use less self pity...
