I’m not going to lie and say that being single and w/o a date on Valentine’s Day doesn’t bother me. I sent a text to my best friend wishing her best wishes for today…she wrote back saying same to me and ‘it’s overrated.’ I kiddingly thought to myself, ‘oh sure, you can say that..’ but I didn’t. Granted, she’s right…I mean, it is overrated and is a holiday for guys to panic, thinking they have to get a card, flowers, candy, etc…and go all out for their ‘significant other.’ When in fact, all we girls want is you to acknowledge us…give us compliments just because…not because it’s a certain day.
As I write this, I am watching one of my favorite movies, The Holiday. I didn’t have some extravagant, overpriced dinner nor did I have to get all dressed up…I had a decent dinner and am in comfy clothes as I have been all day. Tomorrow starts a new week and Valentine’s Day will be in the past. I”m okay with that. Maybe one of these days, I’ll have a ‘Valentine’ of my own. And if not, there’s always movies 😉
