Okay, I’m not trying to be a stick in the mud… but Valentine’s Day this year is reallyyyyyyyyyy irking me. This is my 2nd without Daniel :pout: and this is harder than the first-I think maybe because I was still in shock the first year.
I know its a nice day where couples indulge in the romantic side of life blah blah blah, but as a single girl in my 30’s I feel like all those 's, pretty boxes of chocolate and flowers exist just to mock me. I am sure I saw a bouquet of roses and a box of Russell Stovers pointing and laughing secretively when I was in the grocery store last night. :verysad:
I KNOW it shouldn’t matter. I KNOW I shouldn’t care. I KNOW I should celebrate it by doing something I enjoy. But I would rather be childish and stick my tongue out at all those kissy :ick: face couples mooning over each other. Not that I begrudge them their happiness…Happiness makes the world a better place. But what if we treated each other EVERYDAY the way we did on St. Valentine’s Day, Birthdays and Christmas? What kind of world would we have then? A better one I’m sure.
Ugh. I don’t think it would be nearly as big of a deal if I wasn’t the only single girl in BOTH offices where I work. My desk will look so plain and empty next to everyone elses with their huge bouquets and stuff. And what about the people who actually decorate their desks!!! :hair:
I think next year I will start up a Valentine group that sends gifts and cards to each other at work on St. V-day just as friends. I am sure there are others in the same situation as me.[/i]
