    HATE It!!!

    This is like, always the worst day of my year, along with new year's eve.  When I was a little girl, my daddy used to go out and buy me teddy bears and candy and he'd call and sing to me (I'm really about to cry) and my mom would make valentine's day cupcakes or cookies and...

    not a true one...I show my affection

    and get none in return. I've come to stop acknowledging the day as I never have someone who treats my heart tenderly.

    Never Ever Ever....

    I've always been single so, I guess never having a real valentines day comes along with that. Hopefully that will change soon... All I know is that I don't want to spend the rest of them by myself, watchig the happy couples kissing, holding hands and exchanging gifts.... I want...

    Never have I ever had a valentine

    but I do t care too much about that :) just go and spread the love with family and friends, give yourself the excuse for home made biscuits and chocolate, have a cup of hot chocolate or a smoothie. Just enjoy your day, not just this day but every day in general :) Happy...

    I never had a Valentines Day, either. Even at school... the thing was, the teachers told everyone to make or buy valentines to exchange in class. I would make half and buy the other half. Having enough valentines for everyone in my class. :-) Then, when it was time to give them...

    Concept of Love Only Once a Year?

    As I discover more about origins of holidays, I am learning the absolute contradiction of the original idea and the modern consumption of holidays. Over ten years ago, I started to make my own holidays where I would silently remember important events in my life, my...

    Nope. Never. I'm thinking about changing it

    this year though. ^_^ Here's the deal: I already hung out with this girl once, and it was a pretty fun time. We're really good friends right now. I wanna try hanging out with her again the upcoming weekend, and surprise her by asking her to be my valentine. When we go up to my...

    Will You Be My Valentine?

    I've never had a Valentine. A guy made me a card once a coupe of years ago, and put it in my locker at school. Although, he admitted it some time later and he was just a friend of mine. So, it wasn't very... uhm.. romantic. I still generally love Valentine's Day, because love is...

    I've just never understood the hype over it.

    Showing someone you care is so simple and should be done daily. It's the little things, like waking up to fresh coffee, coming home to a house you didn't have to clean for once, all of those little mundane things that are usually taken for granted. If someone were to ever give...

    I Have Never Had a Valentines Day...

    ...and as it looks like I won't have one this year either... Once again I will go out with my single friends and talk about how much we hate this day... But we will deeply know that we hate the fact that we can't celebrate this day... It's a bit pathetic but what else can...

    I never had a Valentines Day. Every year on this day I'm either single or had some king of argument with my boyfriend (if I had one) but somehow I'm not bothered at all. The only thing I don't like is all this artificial pressure it puts on people - that if you are alone then...
