No matter what your current status is, I know you've already thought about what you'll be doing on February 14. Between the candy aisle at the grocery store and the Valentine's Day movie preview that's getting played out on TV (I wanna see it!), it's kind of hard not to. Every year up until the last four, I was single on this holiday of love—more or less. (The most my college "boyfriends" did for me was send awkward E-cards and buy me shots of Jager. So romantical, right?)
I don't know why, but I usually don't make a huge fuss about Valentine's Day. (I guess I'm just too cool and perfect and independent and...right..). When I was single, I'd go out with my girlfriends for dinner and vino—lots of vino, and now that I have a bf, it's more of the same without the male bashing. When I was unattached, I never felt depressed or that I was on a fast track to Loserville because I didn't have a man, but I did dream about what it would be like to one day have someone special to share the day with.
And now I know. It's nice. It feels good. Sometimes it's just right, and other times it falls a bit short. One year he'll send flowers, the next it's chocolate covered strawberries. Sometimes he takes time to write an extra-special message, other times he forgets to even buy the card. Dinner. Sneaking kisses. Going to a double-feature at the movies. Red lingerie. Damnit, I DO really like Valentine's Day!
Tell me: Have you thought about Valentine's Day yet? Do you know what your plans will be?
