    Even Though I Was Born the Day Befor

    I hate v-day! Even if I did love someone, unlikely, why do you need that one day to show that you love them. I mean shouldn't it be every day? I don't feel like typing much so thats all.

    Here We Go Again

    The day is coming again, tomorrow.  I'm with someone new.  We've been seeing each other since July.  So Thursday, he says "have a nice night" and that's it.  No phone calls, no "what are you doing this weekend"  I actually have a bet...

    For me, it's not because I'm single.

    It's because the person I spend it with or the circumstances are always so... Unromantic. This year I was gonna try to fix that. I made a lot of money, was gonna buy us dinner and a hotel for the night. We were gonna shower together and I was gonna surprise him with the new...

    Dear Clayton,

    One Day To Love

    Isn't it ironic that people only use this "man-made holiday" to tell people they love them? I dislike the concept of "one day to tell people you love them", because you must be able to tell people you love them all the time, not just when this "one day" comes on the calendar map...

    It's just not fair. Some girls get loads of cards, presents, heart shaped balloons etc. And others .... nothing D': Valentines Day is an evil, evil holiday. It was formed to sell flowers/cards/merchandise. Reminding you that you have no life whatsoever and bringing pain into the...

    My Least Favorite Day of the Year

    As the dreaded day draws closer I can already see the signs of the worst day of the year. Jewlery stores are advertising a hell of a lot more, flowershops are stocking up, corny cupids and pink hearts decorate the window of every store. Valentine's Day is like a day for couples...

    I've never been with someone on Valentine's. It's always a lonely day that way. My dad always gives me nice presents and candy so it's not all bad.

    Commercialism to Blame

    Valentines Day is that day of the year when all you want is something from anyone to show you that someone actually really cares, but with it being so over commercialized it has taken away the magic of it all, with such an easy excuse as over commercialism not to spoil someone on...
