Let’s be honest, if we could pick our Valentine, the majority of us would pick a food item…or items. Food knows us best and in all the right ways.
Food won’t leave me
Food knows my deepest desires
Food cares about my well-being
Food won’t leave feeling me empty inside
Food calms me when I’m stressed
Food can’t hurt me
All in all, food is the winner. What could be a better date? Enjoy your V-Day while I’ll be with my true love…food.
It’s that time of year again! The time for flowers, chocolate, fancy dinners, and heart shaped everything from cookies to pillows to toilet paper sheets. Instead of complaining about it or calling it SAD-day, let’s call it the name it deserves…Victory Day.
We’re victors! We have stayed single for another WHOLE year! We did it, despite all odds: we remained companion-free.
February 14 is a day to celebrate our singleness. Our day to celebrate independence and individuality. Our day to celebrate our ability to not give in to societal standards of being coupled off.
How to Celebrate Victory Day:
1. Turn that frown upside down… into smirks
2. Catch those tears and water the flowers planted in the ashes of your ex’s stuff
3. Throw away the pity-chocolates and order yourself a damn cake to congratulate yourself
4. Take those heart shaped candies and crush them as party favors for V-Day
5. Don’t cancel that dinner reservation, find the sexiest dress you have, and grab your bestie
6. Don’t run from the color red, instead paint your face for battle
Embrace the holiday with open arms and a heart full of sass. It will make it so much better while all those fake couples showcase their love as publicly as they can.
Love: an intense feeling of deep affection; a person or things that one loves.
Valentine’s Day is normally associated with couples, lovers, relationships. But, if we are going to look at this day at face value, it is not meant for just those people in relationships.
Love has no boundaries, is not meant for specific people or relationships, is not meant to be restricted by people.
We need to recognize love in our life that does not come from a significant other. We need to recognize love from other people, from other things, and from moments in life. Love is not bound to a boyfriend or girlfriend, or to a person for that matter.
Love comes from our family
Love comes from our friends
Love comes from our pets
Love comes from studying what we like in school
Love comes from pursuing our dreams
Love comes from ourselves appreciating our worth
Love comes from those laughs shared with people who know us
Love comes from the apology from someone close
Love comes from the sunrise
Love comes from your past, your present and your future
So Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone. I hope you feel the love today!
It is almost Valentine’s Day everyone, and we all know what that means: a day of constant reminders that we are in fact still single. Looking at all of the cute couples posting photos of their nice dinners out, flowers, champagne glasses, heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, etc., I actually only think of the practical reasons I would need a significant other.
I mean I can buy myself a whole bottle of champagne. My mom gets me chocolates. And my dad can send me flowers….if I ask him….and then remind him again….and then again. But still, I don’t need a man for all of that.
I don’t need a guy for anything romantic.
Not to tell me I’m beautiful because I am…on the inside.
Not to hold my hand because I tend to not see cracks in the sidewalk and don’t need to take both of us down.
Not to buy me chocolates because those are always on my weekly grocery list.
Not to watch movies with because I get way too invested in the characters and get emotional…no one needs to see me like that.
However, what I do need a boyfriend for is…
To pay for my meals
To kill bugs for me
To clip my jewelry together
To pay for my Netflix subscription
To remind me to pay my bills
To drive my places
