Happy Single Awareness Day, everyone.

Valentine's Day is not a good holiday for single people. I spent my entire day daydreaming about what I would plan for that special someone today. But then I started thinking...why do couples wait until Valentine's to get romantic and lovey dovey? I'm the kind of girl who would do something mushy and special for my girlfriend WAY more than just once a year...So that's why I think this holiday is just bullshit, just another way for florists and Russell Stover to cash in on roses and cheap half-priced chocolates. Gag.

I mean, if I had a girlfriend, I would try my best to tell her that I love her or that she's beautiful at least once a day. I would of course do something for her on Valentine's Day, but I would be romantic other days too. And I wouldn't buy half-assed gifts like chocolate or flowers. I'd be a bit more classy.

Maybe I'd buy her something funny and quirky, depending on her personality. If it's snowing, I'd like to cuddle beneath the covers on a comfy sofa and watch any movie of her choice, but only after we've played like little kids in the snow. Take her to a restaurant of her choice, no matter how simple or how fancy. Lavish her with jewelry (cool jewelry, not that glitzy, gaudy chocolate diamond stuff). Write her a poem (not a really mushy one though, an awesome one). Lay in bed with her, holding her, telling her how much she means to me. Making passionate, wild love until the early dawn. Fall asleep with her in my arms.

Okay, maybe I am a bit cliched and romantic. Kinda got lost in that daydream a minute there.

The cheerleaders were selling roses today. They walked around classes all day delivering them. I seriously considered having a rose sent anonymously to Brittany. Guess what? I didn't. I came really close though. Now I'm beating myself up over it. Damn.

Wanna know how lame my Valentine's Day always is? My mom and my grandma both are the only people who buy me anything, and they both always ask if they can be my valentine. But that's okay. This holiday has no real significance anyway.

This!

This is a summary of this year's Valentine's Day for me! I was lonely and kept wishing I had the confidence to tell Brad. I'm watching motivational videos right now. Maybe tomorrow will be a bit less repetetive.

Just take caution: If you

Just take caution: If you spend a lot of time planning for the moment you tell Brad, you won't tell him. Because you've spent so much time planning you're putting pressure on yourself. But, if you tell him how you feel on an impulse, in the spur of the moment, you'll surprise yourself. The harder you plan on things, the worse you make it for yourself. Believe it or not, impulsiveness can be a good thing at times.

That's why I didn't buy a rose for Brittany. I thought about it all day long, and I psyched myself out. This was the only day to buy roses too. God, the more I think about it the more pissed at myself I become. Ugh.

That's my problem: I barely

That's my problem: I barely know Brittany because I still struggle with being impulsive. But I sent Amber a text asking her to give Brittany my number on an impulse, and now Brittany and I text. I've sent her a couple texts on an impulse, didn't really plan it so I didn't worry myself, and things went smoothly. So I've found from experience that the few times I've managed to be impulsive, I get somewhere.

Lucky.

I can't text Brad. We did have a very transient text conversation, but after that I texted him and he didn't reply because he never checks his phone and it runs out of battery.

Well, thank goodness I'm not

Well, thank goodness I'm not the only one who chickened out with the whole rose thing. I really had no reason not to do it. She never would've figured out it was me. Ah, well. Another chance will present itself to you and me both, I'm sure.

Aw..but you can send her a rose anonymously any day! Like next week, for instance. As far as Valentine's day not being good for single people, I've never experienced Valentine's day not single (that I remember). But, it's still good single...because I don't have to spend money on dinner or roses..and I don't have to feel bad for blowing off my girlfriend to study for a test the next day :P

Ah, but I'm afraid I can't.

Ah, but I'm afraid I can't. Today was the only day the cheerleaders were selling roses, and I can't have deliveries sent in school from outside stores. I don't know where her locker is or her combo, so I couldn't buy a rose, bring it to school, and put it in there. If I went to a florist and bought her some roses, I would never have the nerve to give them to her in person and I have no idea what her address is. I mean, I guess I could ask around or be a stalker and find out, but I dunno. I wanna do *something* flirty, that's for sure.

I'll admit, being single on Valentine's Day does make me feel a bit pathetic. But overall I'm just indifferent to this holiday. And you're lucky you've experienced Valentine's with a girlfriend. So very, very lucky :P

I really haven't ever

I really haven't ever experienced vday with a girlfriend. I should avoid using double negatives. But I imagine we'd all be lucky if we could have that experience:)
So, flowers are out fo the question..something flirty, hmm.. I'm confident the perfect idea will come to you eventually, but good luck! If nothing else, it's nice to think about. Embrace the warm fuzzy feelings :P
