Valentine's day for singles..

Sigh, why must Valentines Day only be for lovers? Why don't more single people use it as an excuse/opportunity to approach someone they like? Maybe send them a bouquet of roses or something, instead of just sitting around feeling sorry for themselves?


Because if a man did that, he would be accused of “creepy behaviour” and “stalking”. If you run around performing random acts of kindness, they will lock you up.

Chocolate, Netflex and a bubble bath.......some erotic texting at best....lol

Sounds like a plan to me! It’s really amazing the conversations that people will engage in with strangers, when you’re separated by thousands of miles and they know they will never actually meet you.

Well, I'm being an optimist now because met a really nice man so have plans for Friday. It will be our first official date after our fantastic meet/greet; I'm so looking forward to it. And though, it won't be on Valentines' Day, it will be all the more special because it's just the next day and I'm assuming a lot of dates are waiting until the weekend to celebrate it.

I'm going on a meetup outing to a new restaurant in Minneapolis, there will be over 50 people there and I haven't met any of them. I can't wait :)

And to Literate Hiker, you should go out on a date with the staunch republican, they're super easy to tease, help him learn to lighten up.

Just working, it's not a holiday I care much about when dating. When single and at work I see all the men buying flowers and it does kind of make me feel lonely/unloved.

I like the idea of being single for valentine's or any day.. I've dated in the past, and it just didn't do anything for me;

I don't miss being with the guy that make's me feel uncomfortable, and I don't miss the arguments!

So don't have a pity party and feel sorry for yourselve's for being alone Valentine's day, go out around people, your friend's, family- or just treasure the luxury of being single!

Yes we do get lonely, but I'd rather be lonely, then with somebody that I don't like!

Instead of looking outward's for someone to be your valentine- Be a valentine to yourself!

Even when I'm in relationship, we didn't do anything special for V Day.

I had a "date" for V-Day. It was going to entail a good amount of sweating, huffing, puffing, moaning, and crying out "Oh God! No more! I can't take it!"

Then my personal trainer informed me he was going out of town tonight for a few days and had to cancel our workout tomorrow ;-) Life!!!!

I've been trying to be a little "extra special nice" to people today. A sweet message or two to a sweet prospect, but also things like leaving behind single anonymous chocolates in my work-mates' in-bins that say: "Hope you get a chance to feel a little extra special today." I've found that by doing little niceties without any expectation of receiving special niceties back has made Valentine's day one of my favorite days of the year. (Second only to Thanksgiving.)

I delivered flowers to everyone in my life that I love because today isn't about just romantic love to me. I like that we take a day out to make our loved ones feel special. Other than that, I took a day off work to go shop and maybe see a movie. As for evening plans, I'll likely make some girlie mixed drinks and giggle myself silly, masturbate, and then go to bed.

In years past I've wallowed in loneliness and self pity while watching Meg Ryan movies, but I'm down on absurd, modern fairytale-type romances at the moment.


That's why the Horror genre (the most awesome genre of all) was invented, right?
Out with the ridiculous romance stories that don't resemble reality.
In with the stories of weekends spent camping and fighting for your life against mobs of zombies!

Is it appropriate to wish someone you are conversing with or had a date with Happy Valentines day? Should one call, text or send a message to convey interest or does it appear desperate being alone on this day?

It's perfectly fine to wish someone a Happy Valentine's Day, but if you've had a date with them and you're still talking, why not suggest a future date?

I've never been big on celebrating valentines day, regardless of if I was with a girl or not. It's a day to make people in relationships spend money, and the people who are single feel bad for themselves while all their friends are celebrating. To me, what matters is what you do the other 364 days of the year.

That and it's a big reminder of how terrible a lot of my choices in friends were in the past, and still today... LONG STORY, that's completely unrelated to me being single today

Umm ... YOU don't close threads.
It's 5 pm here in Colorado.
Last week, I snail-mailed some Valentine cards to a few of my single friends.
I received a couple of calls yesterday to thank me (and one just now). That was nice.

Last night I brought some home made brownies to share with the members of my trivia team.
(Substitute pomegranate juice for water in recipe. Yummy!)
I told the guys they were my Valentine! It was fun.
Last week, I boxed up a small selection of beautiful See's truffles for a friend who's a sweet freak. She loved them.

Tonight, I'll go out to meet up with some buddies to listen to a live soul/ funk band and maybe even shake a tailfeather!


P.S. I received a package today ... Some kitchen / cooking equipment I ordered AND I'm about to make a lobster tail dinner.
Happy Valentine's Day to me!
