Writer's Block: Heart to Heart

Valentine's Day: love it or hate it?

Am I supposed to hate it? Of course I am. I'm single. I'm meant to hate people who talk about how great it is having a boyfriend/girlfriend, people who snog in public and most of all, Valentine's Day. I'm meant to hate everything to do with coupledom, until I find a partner, then Val Day is fantastic and I go around pissing single people off by snogging in front of them inbetween saying how brill our relationship is.

But why? I have been single for two whole years, and appreciate that there are more important things than being coupled. Plus, I'm happy for those who are. My mum and dad still kiss when they come home from work, I'd much rather have them do that than split up. (In fact, my parents splitting up is one of the few things on my "I'd rather die" list.) I don't turn green with envy and shake my fist every time I'm out shopping with Lucie and she insists on buying things for her boyfriend Ryan, I think it's sweet. And finally -

She could be money, cars, fear of the dark, your best friend or just strangers in parks.
Whoever she is, whoever she may be, one thing's for sure - you don't have to worry.

-The Maine, "Whoever She Is"

Love can be for anyone and anything, not just partners. I just wished the kettle Happy Valentine's Day. (:

You don't have to hate valentines day if you're happy being single :p I hate it because I'm sick of being single and v-day is a reminder that I suck at finding the one for me. I do agree with you that v-day should be celebrated for love in all its forms though, not just the romantic - I sent 2 platonic valentines day cards to my best friends along with a me to you love bug tatty bear :)

Aww :( I used to always say that it sucks being single, but being single > my relationships so far (well, duh, otherwise I'd still be with one of them). It's better to be single than to be with the wrong person, yes?

And good on you for the cards and the bear. Love isn't just for couples, love is for everybody. (: <3
