The Dating Files: Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentine's Day. Historically the most hated of all holidays for the single gal. And I"ll admit, in the past I've een known to feel a little stabby on this day. I know what you'll say, "but Amy everyone hates Valentine's Day and even if you're in a couple it's still pretty stupid." And yes I agree with you. Even when I was with someone it wasn't all romance and rainbows. Like that one time I got an external hard drive for a Valentine's present. Yeah, that was cool. Of course, that probably had more to do with the man than the holiday. But I digress. The thing is, February 14th can do a great job of making someone who is single feel reallyreally single.

But, in my old age I've learned to take it in stride. It's a silly holiday really. And single or not, if you feel like celebrating love today go for it, my friend. And if you don't, well than it's just another Thursday, right? So if you have a Valentine I hope it's a magical romantic time. If you don't, you should do something nice for yourself. Aka treatyoself. And one thing I know is this: I love you all to bits. Happy Valentine's Day!

p.s. I have a date tonight. He's picking me up and there will be pizza.
