Valentine

And if by chance, that special place
That you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love

      - Whitney Houston





Valentine's Day...I have no Valentine.  I haven't even accepted a date since I returned from Hawaii.  I've been asked, but I wasn't able to get excited about starting something new.  Dating for the sake of dating doesn't seem fun right now, either.  I'm just not in the right frame of mind.

Maybe I'll do something special for myself...

I think all the "be my valentine" business is over-rated.

Do something nice for yourself!

I am eating my favorite Hungry Man dinner tonight. That counts as doing something special right?

You definitely need to pamper yourself! I have no valentine today either.

I agree with Kelly.

That's such a good song. What a classic.

Come on over and pick up a v-day card at my blog... I tried to paste one here, but I couldn't get it to go. Be gentle with yourself.

St Valentines day is the greatest triumph of the marketing profession since, well, ever. And how do they manage it. But instilling a sense of entitlement into the average woman together with a visceral fear of not having anyone to beat upon for that day.

And that is ok. When you're ready again, you'll know.

@Vince: Hallmark is guilty as charged, but they didn't limit it to Valentine's day and they can do it because we let them. There is no need to spend a lot of money to show someone you think they are special.

As far as the sense of entitlement thing - I always thought both should participate. Have you never had a girlfriend who did something special for you?

I hope you did do something special for yourself. You're worth it :)

good on ya!

being good with yourself is the most important thing you can do...

i see so many people that just date someone and settle, because they are afraid or lonely...

Heather said...

don't rush it....just be your own valentine...that way there are NO disappointments - and agree with bruce, there, never settle!
