It's Valentines day and I'm at home more single then ever. I've always spent V-day alone but it's really frustrating me this year. Almost all of my friends are now in relationships. I don't want to sound like the kind of girl that needs to be told time after time she's beautiful or anything but is there something wrong if you don't even have a guy ask ya out? I'm shy when it comes to guys. I'm more old fashioned and would rather them pursue me, but I know I'm never going to get anywhere if I don't also do my part. Advice? Also, there seems to be no decent guys left in this world! All of them are taken or end up being a jerk.

I've always been single over Valentine's Day too, but I've never seen the point of Valentine's Day anyway. It's just another day to me. I decided to embrace my singledom and do what I wanted. That being watching slasher flicks, playing games online, talking to my other single friends online, and basically made fun of those people who just HAD to go out on the day because of what day it was.
I've never been asked out for Valentine's day and I gotta say, I'm okay with that. I probably have more fun talking to my single friends both here in my town, and across the planet (granted she does have somebody in her life, but still), and doing my own thing.
As for pursuing guys, do whatever's comfortable for you. Smiling at the guy you like is always a good option, a casual "Hey, how are ya?" can help start communication. You don't have to come right out and say "Hey, I wanna jump your bones" because let's face it, that idea is terrifying and not the smartest way to start any kind of relationship. Just be true to yourself, and don't do anything you're not comfortable with.1
