It feels awful!

I feel like today is for in love people to flaunt their love and make the rest of us feel bad and unworthy of love.

I know that's a tad extreme.

Who else is single, and what are you doing today?

I will be single on Valentine's Day too. It doesn't much bother me though... Valentine's Day is all hyped up by the candy companies and I never much cared for it even if I was dating someone. I'm probably going to be reading I, Robot and just relaxing. Don't feel bad because you're single on Valentine's Day, a lot of us are. You should go out and treat yourself to something nice.

It's just another day here. I will be working ...serving couples actually.

...come to think of it, i've worked Valentines Day every year for a number of years now.

It hasnt ever been important to me.

Maybe, like BOE said, you could do something nice for yourself.

Hope you find a way to cheer up!

Add me also to the 'single on Valentines' list Even though I don't have anyone special right now doesn't mean I can't go out and treat myself to shopping or spa and make the best of it...and I do still believe there is a lid for every pot, its just a matter of time

I love Valentine's Day when I'm single, which I am now. When I was with someone there was always some issue on Valentine's Day, some kind of pressure to make it wonderful. What would happen is either I would be too idealistic about it and then be disappointed with my gifts or flowers or I would have fallen out of love with my partner and then I felt just awful pretending to get him something that proved my love and I felt like a bum.

But when I'm single, I actually bye myself the flowers or the rose bouquets that I REALLY want, and I get them delivered to myself. I get myself the right size candy box, not too big where I don't actually eat the candy because there are too many that I don't like.

I also like the platonic feel of the holiday, showing my friends that I love them, nieces and nephews, co-workers, etc. My thought is that if Hallmark had to create a holiday, why not a holiday dedicated to love. I used to work on Valentine's Day also serving couples and I observed that they are not all happy, it's like they are forcing the holiday so there is a lot of misery on that holiday, too.

I say enjoy your freedom now and celebrate your love for yourself because....that day is gonna come when someone is in your life and let's just hope it's wonderful, but it ain't always. I do have single friends who really want to be with someone, I would like that also, but I always remind them to enjoy their freedom now because when that certain someone comes along, you're gonna have to give all of this (extra freedom) up.

Happy Valentine's Day to all my single peeps and to all my favorite loving couples as well. Just let it be and love the one your with, etc. ad infinitum.

Today, I shall be as romantic as possible, preferably flaunting my love somewhere that will upset as many single people as possible.

Kidding. I'm off to work, he's already at work, when I get back I'll feed the cat and carry on moving the furniture. I'll buy him a present and/or express my appreciation at a personal time when I really mean it.

I love being single on Valentine's. I get more Valentine's date offers which I ALL turn down. WHY? Because I can.

I am single this time, and I don't have to explain to my partner where I got the other gifts from.

I mean... if I don't take my birthday seriously, nor Christmas and such, why on earth would I bother with this day? If Valentine's Day was a non-working holiday, then I would appreciate it, but currently, I don't see the point.

I am not bitter either. I am finally breathing after years. Love it! Love it! Love it!

For the singles here, you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone. Enjoy having noone to pester you.

Single and loving it...would not have it anyother way..

Ladies, it is not "Valentines Day" today but


"V" has long been the symbol for femaninity, Venus, Virgin, the female sex organ, how a woman's pelvis is shapped like a "v."

So today I celebrate being in absolute love with ME~~~

I like having themed days. It's like having Charlie Brown Christmas on video or dvd and still choosing to watch it when it comes on network television. Because the sheer number of happy children all sharing in the enjoyment and laughter at the exact same time that you are also basking in the happy glow is palpable. I can feel the difference.
Valentine's Day is the same (who cares if somebody is trying to sell you something, it's not like they don't do it every other day of the year too... day in day out every minute)unless you let yourself get caught up in expectations (just like Christmas). Use it as a day to give love and to celebrate the joy of romantic love in your heart. It's true that when you don't have that romantic love you can feel the gap where you wish it would be. And it's true that romantic love isn't all joy, and comes with a lot of pain that isn't illustrated with pink teddies (bears or otherwise) and flowers. And those who do have romantic love are the first to tell you that.
It's also true that we can't sit around waiting for some elusive perfect partner to fulfill us with trinkets and chocolates... although they are fun and nice and there's nothing wrong with a yearly reminder to men that the little tokens of romantic affection mean a lot to women. Even the most sensitive and amazingly romantic men don't know exactly what trinket you have your eye on so even if you are in a relationship it is stupid to drop hints or expect him to read your mind and know. A man who writes a beautiful love note or chooses a meaningful card is the best, and if he throws in a flower or some chocolate he's the king. Just get what you want for yourself. If he wants to get it for you, let him take you shopping (now that's a real gift of love, a male companion on a shopping adventure).
I'm blabbing on about that because I got a gold ring with pink heart stones for myself and I'm having it sized now. I also got some red, pink and black "underthings" for myself earlier this month to get me in the romantic February mood. I have a tiny box of chocolates of some sort for me (I put it away and my air sign mind forgets what I got for myself so it is a surprise hehe) and some fun candies for my daughter. I also got a bottle of wine from Italy in this gorgeous carafe. It was $6.99, so I might end up mixing it with Sierra Mist for spritzers hehe but it's beautiful and feels romantic.
Can't you hear the music...?

comments say it isn't Italian music but it is a band in Florence, so it has the beauty of Italy There are more, but I liked this one.

Happy Valentine's Day luvahs

Here's a Single on Valentine's Day article that came with my horoscope yesterday.

Survive Another Valentine’s Day
A 24-hour plan that works
by M. McMahon

Okay, before you read on, step out of your home, look up at the sky and scream, "Why God, WHY?"

Now that we have that out of the way, it's time to face the longest 24 hours of the year for the many, many, many single people in the world. I emphasize "many" because it's easy to confuse "single" with "alone." Single means open for new love that is imminently coming toward you. Alone means, well, alone! Let's break down these 24 hours into a 3-step plan:

First 8 hours
It's best to sleep. Sleep in, sleep it off, just stay asleep. You have permission to call in sick to work. You are sick of the everyday grind and it's time to take a day just for you!

Next 8 hours
Go go go! Manicure, pedicure, new outfit, decadent dessert, movie, hike, museum, bike ride, beach trip, painting, singing, yoga, skipping, dancing. Do something that you like so much it puts you right in the moment, in the right, right now, where you are actually enjoying your own life. Because you have the ability to treat yourself as well (or better!) than any other person on the planet - because you know what you enjoy more than anyone will - ever. Make this a day of intimate love for you and give yourself an awesome few hours.

You can pick a single friend to embark on your eight hours of awesomeness - if they are willing to play by the rules. No tears, no regrets, and absolutely no calling an ex. No matter what! Happy, open single friends are a good idea, actually. Sad faced fellows who want to throw pity parties are forbidden.

Last 8 hours
Fly through the danger zone. You are a beautiful, wonderful, sexy, intelligent, intuitive, sensitive, hilarious, successful person who is loved by many people in your life. Not only that, you are real and human and it's okay if Valentine's Day is just a tad bit painful. Let yourself off the hook in the final stretch. Eat whatever you want. Watch whatever you want on Tivo. Call anyone you like (except ex's - definitely no ex's) and accept that the desire for romantic love is part of being human. It's just one single day in everyone's life and doesn't even exist in most countries. Neither does clean drinking water, public education, adequate healthcare and a stable currency.

So, in many ways, Valentine's Day has everything in common with all the other days in your life. It's a gift, it's a blessing and no matter how you spend it, it's only 24 hours long. Take it as you take all the days of your life - with love for yourself and others. Take it with gratitude. Take it with joy. Happy Valentine's Day to you!

I'll probably go and watch a film later on, then cook myself some seafood.

I am single and completely un-bothered about the fact. Yay!

Thanks to everyone who answered my question. I wish I was happy being single but it's been such a long time since I wasn't.

Thanks for cheering me up
