Did I miss it? I'm a little surprised no one has put up a Valentine's Day rant page. Or perhaps the single people are too suave to do that and be decried for sour grapes.
So I guess if there isn't a V-Day rant page already up, this is as good a place as any to let it rip!
I remember only 1x in my memory being very bitter (and, of course, unwillingly single) on V-day and that was my 2nd year in college. And I was at a woman's college no less. You know, Lezzie Heaven. Hahahaha. :yim_rolling_on_the_
When I worked at a chocolate store, V-Day was like Xmas on steroids so of course I was dealing with it for the whole month. Otherwise, the holiday doesn't register. I think every time I was in a relationship or seeing someone it missed V-day by miles so the day just doesn't register for me. Like Secretary's Day.
I have noticed though that male friends become mysteriously quiet and don't call or even return calls for at least 1 week preceding and a few days after V-Day. Alright dudes, I get it. Sheesh.
I actually have a few people I need to get back in touch with and call, but I'm avoiding doing it until after this week perchance there is mis/ understanding.
Otherwise, I have nothing against V-Day or people who celebrate it. I would prefer to celebrate it a little different from normal, is all.
V-day is just as festive and obligatory, lauded and derided, heartfelt and commercial as any other major holiday. And I like festifivities and excess, so you know, no complaints.
