I used to have a thing for this day. It's so easy to join the anti-Valentine's movement and be grumpy but I realize it's NOT a day for hating. It's a day for love! For one day in a year, the entire world celebrates love! Now isn't that what we've been wishing for in the first place? Everyone is in good spirits, everyone is happy, love fills the world-- it's like Christmas day all over again :)
I know people say that this day is not just for couples-- that it is also about love for family, or friends, or pets, generally, others. I'm not saying they're not correct but I think we should stop brushing away the truth that this day is more a boyfriend-girlfriend kind of day. And that's the main reason single people start sulking when this day comes, because it always rubs in the fact that they don't have special someones to share the day with.
Don't worry, one day, all you single people out there will get to share this occasion with someone special. As Swedish House Mafia puts it, "Don't you worry child, see heaven's got a plan for you". *wink!
Happy Valentine's Day my darlings!
