Singles Only--Happy Valentine's Day Thread

So you're feeling a little off kilter because society has been shoving the couple's paradigm in your face the past few weeks. And now it's here.

Not to worry, Foo love is in the air.

Use this thread to reflect, complain, vent, empathize, rejoice, or share whatever you feel on Valentine's Day.

Or you can simply be my Valentine.

I want to punch my ex in the gut and make fun of how her life is now in the ****ter because she decided to cheat and get pregnant by some 29 year old guy.

Instead I'll probably just make fun of her, I don't believe in hurting babies.

I suspect she has enough problems now; no need to pile on. Just be glad you don't have to deal with that headache.

Retail merchant? Singular? I think you mean all of them!

I figure it was one that probably started it (probably Hallmark).

First Valentine's Day since my wife and I separated (amicable, no divorce in the offing, reconcilliation possible though not likely) and I'm pretty ambivalent. I've always hated these Hallmark holidays, but it does remind me of the hole in my life.

But I agree with Velo Vol that we Foosters can have our own love-fest here (purely Platonic and highbrow - I'll save my usual crass double entendres for other threads ). So, hugs to all, men and women alike (except for those of you who prefer handshakes) and sincere love and best wishes to everyone.

There. I feel better now.

I like how even forums that are generally safe from such advertising (like sports talk radio) suddenly become filled with spots for jewelery, day spas, candy, and the like. I guess the listenership is only expected to shell out for romance once a year.

bikingshearer, I think we'll stick with a handshake. I don't hug guys this early in a relationship.

We had Velotine's Day in Portland today. Much more fun than Valentine's Day, I think.

Although I have a steady sweetie, it's not really an arrangement that takes me out of the "single" category. I'm beginning to wonder about it, frankly.

I like making valentines for my friends and loved ones - you know, the kind with lacy paper doilies, red construction paper, and glitter. Not particularly commercial, I know, but I've been called eccentric for far more unusual practices.

Work has been sucking up my life tremendously, so I didn't make them this year. But if I had, you all would have received one.

Are you kidding? Out for burgers with a couple of my friends last night I got a chance to really appreciate being single. All three of them spent the entire evening whining about what a pain relationships are. In your face society!

That's totally what I'm talking about. What a great holiday. Cheap candy and romantic suckers making sentimental fools out of themselves while trying to desperately trying to do something different.

Celebrate singlehood. You never know when that fateful day will come when sanity leaves you in favor an S.O.

Oh how I wish that didn't hit so close to home . It sucks that a simple date (or the lack thereof, tee hee) could point out the fact that women have hated me for a whole year. Well, time to drink that bottle of my brother's homebrew I've been saving and put a lampshade on my head.
