Why Valentine's Day Sucks

Ok, so I know that most of you reading this are a part of a couple, and that this weekend is a time to reafirm your love and commitment by showing with romantic words and gestures how much you mean to each other. Most of the time, I would say that is a great thing. I have even enjoyed Valentine's day in the past, last year was one of the happiest memories I have. However, this year I am not lucky enough to have someone to share all those happy things with. The only man I have ever been in love with just left me a month ago, and is now back with his ex girlfriend, giving her the flowers and attention that I think I should still be entitled to. I just spent the last 14 months of my life with him, so where are my flowers? So here is my version of a bitter rant towards men (and yes, not all men are bad, I know, so no one on this site should take offense). It's impossible for me not to feel upset and sad just because HE decided he was bored and no longer wanted to be in a serious, long term relationship. It is ridiculous for him to tell me that I cry too much and that because I cry means I am still hanging on to the idea he is coming back for me. I am not. I have mostly good days now, but sometimes a girl just has to break down and cry, no matter how much she hates herself for it. So that's why I am boycotting V-Day this year- it just reminds me that things don't always work out the way you want them to. But anyway, I don't really know any of you very well, I just thought I would join the ranks of ranters and venters for a moment. I don't know any of you very well, but I would very much like to. From what I can see, you are some of the best people in the world. Sweet, and loyal, and caring. So please enjoy your Valentines day if you have someone to share it with, and take it from me: don't ever take that person or a single day you spend with them for granted. Tell them how much you love them every day. And help out your single friends so they feel included in this couples weekend. Thanks, and to everyone, I hope I can get to know you all better. You are all wonderful. Heather

  2. I agree with you there and everyone needs to let the emotions out from time to time, better out than in. It is said that "You should admire someone for thier strengths but you love them for weaknesses for un-ended beauty lies within emotion", so if they can't understand that then thats thier fault. Just my 2 cents and ignore the deleted comment it had a typo in it.

  3. I'm totally with you in the boycot of valentines day. i mean, where did this stupid day come from anyways? the creator should be shot. maybe i'm just bitter of past experiences and i've never had a good valentines day. but, i would rather spend it alone then to be dissapointed.

  5. I personally have never been shot at with an arrow by some random dude with wings. It sounds confusing and painful. You are probably asking yourself "What in gods name does this have to do V-day"? Instead of sitting here trying to explain myself at great length" wich i might add would be a feat of intelect for any normal person to comprehend" I will just say Happy V-day because all of you will be in my heart with my best wishes and all that other redundant stuff....
