I won't have had a Valentines for 22 years now. It seems pathetic. It's not that I haven't been with anyone, it's just been that the relationships were either short term or occurred after the holiday.

For the longest time the only thing I did for Valentines was either be grumpy all day or fake sickness so I could stay in bed and away from the world. Been single all my life and the only Valentines I've ever gotten were forced (well except one... I'm still so happy I got that.).
And then I realized something... It's just a day. Sure it's a day for lovers, but for the rest of us, it's just a day. So what do you do if you're lonely? Love yourself and everyone else instead. Just be nice and don't be grouchy. Trust me it turns the whole day around.1
