Did it hurt, Internet? You know, when you fell from heaven?
Ok, that was pretty bad. I apologize for my desperation. But let’s face it, Internet- I’m looking at another Valentines Day alone.
And by “alone” I mean “boyfriendless”.
The state of singlehood really got me down on Valentines Days past. When I was in high school, and even in middle school, the halls would be filled with happy couples exchanging cards and gifts. The worst were, of course, the girls walking around the hallways lugging huge stuffed bears. As I was feeling blue about all this, not to mention green with envy, I’m sure I appeared a lovely shade of turquoise to passersby. For some reason, this did not help with the boyfriend situation.
So now I’m at college, surrounded by people who are “in committed relationships”, “engaged”, and/or “going to spend the rest of their lives together”. And you know what? Good for them. I hope they have a happy Valentines Day.
Because while I may be single, I’m not alone. Against all odds, I’ve got friends. I also have 17 cats, and… wait, sorry. That’s 30 years from now.
For those of you who, like me, will be spending this February 14th without a significant other, don’t let it get you down. You’re still awesome. And for those of you who are with someone, enjoy your romance.
But if I see you carrying around a giant teddy bear, we’ve got problems.
