Whew! I survived another year without a mate on Valentine’s Day. Listen.. I am all for the glitz and glamour, flowers, candy, wining and dining on this special day for lovers, but trust me when I say I gagged consistently throughout the day. I’m 31, single as a dollar bill and live in NewYork. You can imagine all the heart shaped balloons, obsessive kissing commercials and bouquets of flowers purposely being thrown in my face! Lol — yes it was on purpose damn it!
In the midst of accepting all this single-dom.. What stood out for me is, it is a day to SHOW love– publicly lol.
Can you agree that a lot of times it’s hard to accept it or even notice it, if it’s not in the way we want or from who we want. We block it out, turn our backs, shrug it off, or just plain ignore it ( lalala im not listening!!!) Then Valentine’s Day comes along and we wear black to celebrate “Singles Awarness Day” and are mad as hell.
So the moral of this story is.. I don’t need to be reminded that I’m single (sheesh!) but maybe I should take a huge whiff of all that love in the air so next year I can blog about all the flowers, wining and dining — oooh and jewelry would be nice haha!
