Does being single on Valentine's day make you feel happy or upset?

I think I feel relieved this year that I'm not out searching for a gift like the couples of the world.
Happy Valentine's day indeed. : )

      That's a good attitude.

      My daughter's the exact reason why I'm unbothered about the whole thing. Other things like their smiling faces are well worth not having anyone.

  • My Valentine's days are all days of the year except Feb. 14. I cannot hear that name anymore. Should I ever have a little daughter, then Valentine is the name that is taboo to me.

    Many couples think they need to do something special on that day to show they care. W-R-O-N-G!

    You do something special for somebody special every single day of the year. True love is not limited to these 24 hours in a year where you suddenly remember that you forgot to say thank you for a small gesture, you omitted to smile back because he shaped his hands in the form of a heart, you ignored his hand that was seeking yours on a walk and you rejected his offer to give you his sweater when you were shivering.

    The year has 365, possibly 366 days but there are an infinite way to show your appreciation and love.

    So, no, I am not sad or unhappy, I am glad that this day is just like any other in the year because I get this Valentine's feeling every time I look at him and see the sparks in his eyes, feel the warmth in his heart and every single, ever so small but unmistakable sign of care and love that oozes out of every pore.

    And for all that, I do not need to be reminded of what I am getting the year long.

    Happy Valentine's to those that are not that lucky

  • I'm neutral. I think its an overdone holiday. Me and my fiance dont celebrate it. But this year in taking my friend out because she was recently cheated on and dumped by her long term boyfriend and they always did valentines day. So I dont want her staying home and being sad

      Aww, hopefully Valentine's day will bring you back together.
      It has that power. : )
      Just kidding.
      When I was your age my girlfriend and I broke up and got back together over and over again.
      I know your pain.
      It'll probably work out, try not to get too down about it.

      My mom doesn’t like how much older he is than me.. and he has kids.. and other reasons..

    • 7d

      Well I can understand that but as long as it’s all legal age then it is fine. What else seems to be the problem?

  • I am indifferent to it. I am neither happy or sad. I will be going to see 'If Beale Street Could Talk' despite the fact that it's being released on Valentine's Day.

    • Aww, I'm sorry to hear that he didn't make any effort on Valentine's day.
      As much as I don't care about Valentine's day I still used to buy roses and write her a love letter.
      I hope you have better luck in your future relationships. : )

  • Not a flying one given , happy if anything , just business as usual. V Day is only a commercial day , a TRUE romantic would not pick a pre-packaged day of " love " ...( more like ££$$$ !! ) and be spontaneous

    • I agree.
      True love shouldn't just be expressed according to the date on a calendar.
      It should be everyday.

    • Single dad , working FT and do not ever want to date , so does not apply to me. Women are great as arms length friends only

  • I’m actually relieved that I’m single this year haha Last year, my ex got in a fight with me on Valentine’s Day and broke up with me 2-3 weeks after, so yeah 😂 I have a crush on a guy this year, but if something should happen between us, I’d prefer it to be another day. All days are worth of love. It should be something that comes natural and because we want it, not because of social expectations on one particular day. Anyways, Valentine’s day can still be fun though, so Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! 😊

      Wow, that's unfortunate.
      I got in a huge fight with my ex on Halloween one year. It's funny how those memories can ruin those days.
      I hope something good happens to you this Valentine's day and erases the bad memories.

    • 6d

      Thank you! Hope you don’t hate Halloween because of it, at leat the fight was in the ‘scary theme’ haha

      It'll be ok.
      I was with a woman I loved for 15 years.
      Then we broke up and I had to completely start over and get over her.
      You'll get through it.

  • When you have had your heart broken right before Valentines Day, it’s a much worse feeling then being single on Valentines Day.

  • I'm pretty even lined when it comes to Valentine's Day. But it more has to go with being widowed on Valentine's Day, it's sad that I don't get to have one more year, even if I didn't make it a huge deal, so yeah it gets me a bit depressed. But spending time with my daughter and knowing she's happy takes away from that.

    I'm also allowing her mom and her mom's husband to call it a night and get some alone time. So that my daughter, her sisters (their kids) and I can watch a movie with them, and have snacks, minus the youngest.

      Keep searching for your valentine, she must be out there somewhere.

    • She is. I just would rather find her sooner than later.

  • Doesn't make me feel anything special. I'm happy for those who have a reason to celebrate it, whilst I'm single, and when I'm not I'll celebrate it just the same.

      I have tried to talk to her and tell her what I see on him. She wouldn’t allow me to finish telling her what I thought about him. She just started nit picking everything I was saying about him. I just said screw it. You’re not going to listen to me, so you don’t deserve to know anything about what I do..

      I tried telling her that I think my boyfriend is a sweet and caring person. He’s the oldest out of 6 kids, and his dad wasn’t around so he had to be Dad growing up.. He’s a very family oriented, hardworking, affectionate and nice person. He likes nature hikes, snowboarding, cooking and I’ve been getting him into painting..

      I feel like no matter what I tell her, she’s constantly judging him and it’s sad because my mom always tells me to find a decent guy that treats me well and that I’m happy with... I do that and immediately she doesn’t like him. She’s only met my boyfriend... three times. She has his number and will text him sometimes when I’m with him to see if I’m okay.. he always texts back. Every time I try talking to her about her past, she gets upset and won’t really tell me much.. she’s told me some things but it’s pretty minimal.

    • 7d

      @Moochii These things take time. You have to whittle away at her defenses. Try not to make it about you. Focus your concern on her. Don't patronize her, but genuinely try to understand who she is. If you treat it like you are only trying to get to know her "issues" as it relates to your situation, she will get defensive. Then it becomes more about you than about her.

      Don't get me wrong. I am not saying your struggles are lesser than hers and that you should put your mother's needs over your own. What I am saying is that the only way to truly get her to want to understand you is for her to be vulnerable and for you to show her that it is safe to do so. There should be no judgment passed on your part. If you show her that you aren't judging her (only her behaviors), then perhaps she will realize that perhaps she is judging you unfairly. Once again, that shouldn't be the goal. It might be a natural consequence of you allowing her to let her defenses down.

      More than likely she is carrying around some kind of baggage as it pertains to men and past relationships. She probably doesn't want to see you get into an unhealthy situation and go through the same struggles she did. She no doubt has trust issues, that much is plain to see.

      As it is now, she may never trust your boyfriend no matter how much he tries to prove himself. This is especially true if her past trauma had anything to do with betrayal. The crazy part about betrayal is that a lot of times people don't see it coming and even people who you trust the most can be the betrayer and that causes some of the worst pain you can imagine. It isn't a feeling someone can let go of. It integrates into their person and can taint every relationship they have going forward. Sometimes only therapy, or a deep understanding, can begin to heal the wound, and even then, it is a hurt that will always need icing over.

      Anyways, know that this part of the ordeal is mostly about her and not about you.

      I pray for you bud. I wouldn't give up hope on love. Your situation might not be the norm, and it may take a special person to be a part of your life, but I wouldn't resign yourself. I have heard of specialized dating services for the disabled, but then, you probably know your situation better than I ever could.

      I wish you luck and happiness wherever you can find it.

      @freakyzeaky Thank you very much. And don’t worry about me giving up. My life isn’t over until God calls me upstairs, and until then I’m giving it my all for Him down here.
