We all have new avatars.

I had a thread last year talking about hating a single Valentines and how I would avoid it. It was very therapeutic to be able to whine with others about it. Made me feel less alone. If I wasnt feeling about Valentines day this year then I would start one of those types of threads.

I'm looking forward to this Valentines day. I've never done anything for it before but the manfriend is very romantic and wants to do it up. Then I'm throwing a lingerie party that weekend for my single friends. Happy VD for all!

How come I love reading other people's witty signatures, but can never seem to make an awesome one for myself?! Life is hilariously cruel.

Why do you care what I think when it comes to this?? O.o

Even more annoying when they leave messages on each others Facebook wall and they live together!! Just go and tell them...

When I was single it really depressed me. It's e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e. Red hearts in the grocery, fabric store, gas station. It felt like a constant reminder: "You're lonely!"

Oh, don't get me wrong...I am quite happy on my own. Working with people day in & out has me appreciating solitary times. I am just annoyed that I am constantly punished for being an individual by paying more for events, trips etc; that whole "single supplement" thing. Ya, I know why they do it, but I don't have to like it. I really don't mind Valentines...lots of chocolate around!

Love many, trust few..always paddle your own canoe

for this one, I live with my boyfriend and I leave messages on his wall. it's a cute little surprise for him to find when he gets home from work and logs in. what's wrong with that? (granted, they're not gushy type messages, but I love you does tend to make an appearance rather often.) everyone else can just scroll right down and ignore it if they don't like it, or hide the post. problem solved. /shrug

I never used to celebrate this one, because it always seemed like a way to punish the single people (you know, the ones who didn't LIKE being single), but we compromised - by us not making Christmas and Easter a big deal, we can do something nice for Valentine's Day. (I always made him a nice dinner anyways, but now we'll rent a few things from vudu and hang out.)

Wake up your generation! Wake up and save the nation! Wake up determination! I am afraid we're going down, Afraid we're going down in flames...

Oh well. But the thing I have learnt about days like that is that they come, then they go. Even if they are depressing, soon they will be over and behind you. Also, you can do some things which can help make the day a bit better. Have a self-care/pampering day.

I am going to be too distracted by my brothers wedding to care this year. And actually being single isnt so bad as people say I dont think. I couldnt say this last year, but this year I definitely can say it. I would rather be single than be in a bad relationship.

Many things are preferable to being in a bad relationship.

Such as stabbing yourself with a spoon.

Yes, but strangely, when you are in the relationship, being out of the relationship seems awful, so you end up staying in it.

Of course it's awful.

But it ain't awful enough.

I look forward to the day after Valentines Day when all the VD merchandise is on sale. I always try to grab a bunch of scented candles and other random things.

How about preparing a cute suprise for when he comes in that involves...I dont know...spending time with him. Sorry but I dont see the 'fun' of leaving messages on peoples wall that you see everyday anyway :/

I can't do that if I'm not at home when he is, now can I?

I just dont see it as any different than leaving a voicemail when you live with someone and see them everyday.

also, it'd be kinda hard to spend any more time with him than I already do... just saying. I'd have to literally cut a piece of me off and stick it in his pocket for that... and that's just weird.

How about we just don't judge people and let them express their affection in whatever means they would like, so long as it's not destructive to those around them?

The last two years I was with someone for Valentine's day. Last year the boyfriend at the time and I went on a double date with our friends, had a picnic at the botanical gardens near us. Then we went into our respective couples for more personal time. He and I went to see 127 Hours, not a romantic movie, but an awesome movie. It was a sweet day. The year before my boyfriend at that time had to work on Valentine's day so we went to a movie the night before, then on Valentine's morning he surprised me by driving the half hour to my house to give me a rose and chocolate. Very sweet.

This year I am single and it all seems like a horrible reminder that my relationship is over. So a single friend and I are going to cheer each other up by sending each other Valentine's packages. Should be a nice thing to brighten what would otherwise be a sad day for a single person.

I know what you mean. I was in a similar position last Valentine's day- I had just been through a breakup 3 weeks previously. Somehow I managed to survive it though, I bought a lot of pampering stuff. It was a hard day though.
