Ahhhh. Valentine's Day. The day all boo'd up LOVERS patiently await. And all others (not-so) secretly hate!!
I know all y'all without a significant other in your lives read that last line all like, "Not me! I LOVE the Single Life!" For some, that may be true, but for many, especially us gals beyond 25.... Shit gets LONELY. I know. I've been there. This is the first V-Day in about 3-4 years that I'm actually in a relationship. (It's true.)
So, to all my homies without a date and plans for today, I know ya pain. While chicks run to the receptionist desk to pick up their delivered flowers and chocolates all throughout the work day and come back gushing to their desk all "surprised" and speak of their date plans later tonight all damn day... And dudes are all in the grocery store picking up them cheap ass flowers while you just tryna grab you a lil groceries after work... And couples are spilling out the doors and windows of local restaurants, don't get too down. Your turn will come.
Speaking of which: My best friend and I actually have a book coming to assist you all. (<<Early PLUG) Stay on the lookout for it.
Anyways, I, too used to hate on all the mushiness of the day. I'm still not BIG into the celebration of the day, but I don't mind it either. Especially the gifts. LOL
With all that said, I gotta shout out my So-In-LOVE crew: Enjoy your day. Be safe. Have fun. And once the night ends, continue to treat everyday like Valentine's Day. You don't have to lavish your partner with gifts everyday, but be kind. Be gentle. Be caring. Be attentive. Be that support. Show love. Don't just make it a one day event.
