The Annual Inevitably Cynical "I Hate Valentine's" Post

It's an especially hateful Valentine's Day this year - I won't bother explaining why and I won't be responding to any questions either so don't bother. I'm serious. Cough.

So what can us singles collectively bitch about this year? Commercialism is lame (and easily avoided by celebrating the day before or after), complaining about how difficult it is to find someone is annoying (I'm sure) and just stating that those who happen to be in relationships are losers is just too easy (no matter how true it is). You do all realise it's just a matter of time before you break up, right?

So how about we flip the script a bit? I think that conventionally this annual post shouldn't be deep or long, so just bear with me on this one: how about I make the suggestion that those of us still single are such purely out of choice? Make it due to laziness, high expectations, fear or whatever you want; the point is that if any of us really did want to celebrate VD (snigger) with a loved one then they totally could. It's in our hands people.

Still, at least I won't be totally and utterly alone watching a film this year. No, tonight is all about curry, poker, foos-ball (and bitching about those in relationships whatever their gender. We are equal opportunity haters). I guess I should be thankful for having such lovely (and chronically single) mates. And you know what? There's no reason whatsoever that we can't celebrate the unique love that exists between friends during this day either.

  1. Did you spend the night with Mash again?.. hey look damn it you, i gave you my free heart on fb! stop complaining already. And you're problem is you do have high expectations. Not your fault, or maybe it is. Who know's what's going through your membrane. But for what it's worth you are a great friend and i would have loved to spend vday with you if we were in the same area code. Yeah so hmmmn......

  3. Fug,

    Like I said, knocking VD for being commercial is lame and a bit too easy as well. Try again?

  4. "You do all realise it's just a matter of time before you break up, right?"

    ...So true. The blissfully ignorant lovers, oblivious in their happiness to what lies ahead...
