Writer's Block: Single pride day

Given that we're less than a week out from Valentines, how do you feel about the approaching holiday? Will you participate or abstain? If you're not in a relationship, how will you celebrate your single status?

     In my case the question should be? Your relationship started last Valentines day and ended a few weeks ago, close enough to the day to call it a year. How do you feel about that? This year I will not participate. I enjoy giving and receiving as we all do but I feel gifts should be given because you want show someone how much you apprecate them. Not because a day on the calendar says you should do it. Today the motive for the gift giving is blatant greed and not a reminder to people that its nice to show your appreciation to someone for caring and loving you. If I feel grateful and loving, I give gifts anytime. You never know what to expect from me. The idea is to feel good about yourself by giving something to someone and not want something in return…A surprise gift or just being nice is much better than the expected thing…If your still reading this now, to answer the last part of the question is..... I will stay home and watch the Lifetime channel and feel sorry for myself……..Yah right….
