Is everyone feeling sad about not having a romantic partner on Valentines Day?
I have no interest in providing extra money to retailers. Vday is a made up holiday that has no meaning to me. When I was in a relationship I did not need to be told that a certain date had certain obligations. As a single person I am not diminished in any way not having a partner. My worth as a person is not measured by bling on my finger or relationship status. However, I will go out the day after and stock up on half price chocolate to keep in my office to share with my fellow minions.
MAN!! And I thought I was a skeptic!! I ain't got nothin' on you guys.
I guess I'll have to be the odd man out again and say yes, I am a little sad.
This is the first year of the last 17 I will spent it w/o my wife, and I did enjoy getting her little things for Valentines Day. There was a time when I would bring her little gifts or cards home at any time just to see her face light up. The gift itself didn't matter so much, it was the thought she enjoyed most... that someone was paying attention to her and loved her.
