Valentine's Day hype

Considering the fact that being alone on New Year's Eve makes me depressed, Valentine's Day really doesn't have much effect on me.

I participate if I'm seeing someone on V-day, but if not, it doesn't affect me. I'll sometimes buy my nieces a Valentine, however.

I celebrate V day by buying funny V day cards and mailing them to all my also-single and over-40 gfs.

What I really like is when a man finds out what your favorite kind of flower is and doesn't just send red roses, which really requires no thought at all.

I am actually one of those people who believes Valentines Day is a pagan holiday and man made by Hallmark.. It hasnt bothered me at all in years .

I would rather focus on Feb. as heart health month as You can stil wear red and focus on red. (lol)

I do see though a few singles dances and events which if anyone was totally depressed about it one can attend.

I'm forced to celebrate it with 9 year olds. It's not my favorite party!

Because of my parents' religious beliefs, I wasn't allowed to celebrate it when I was growing up.

That would be fun though--all those memories of the kids giving each other those little Valentines.
