Day of Love

Will you be my valentine?

I have been asked this once in my life. That was yesterday. My roommate and I were in the parking lot of Wal-Mart and a woman walked by with two redish color baloons in her hands. Both me and my roommate responded with, "Ugh, Valentines day." My roommate turned to me and asked, "Will you be my valentine?" I instantly said, yes laughing. We are both desperate. Right? Later my roommate put as her status, 'Michael said he'd be my that desperation?'

Valentines Day has never been my favorite holiday. Technically it isn't a holiday, it is just an excuse for couples to make out and women to get chocolate. To me that is basically the reason why Valentines Day even exists. Some of you might disagree with me, but If you are disagreeing with me, are you in a relationship? Are you married? Yeah, I thought so. Some people call it Single Awareness day. That is even worst than calling it Valentines day, because it makes us single people realize that we are alone with no boy or girl there for us to give us chocolates, except maybe our mothers.

I find it funny when a guy is going out with a girl and they have been going out for a while and the girl is so excited for the upcoming valentines day that she plans something. Well, I think its funny when the guy breaks up with the girl before valentines day. Why do I think this is funny? I think so because everyone gets so worked up for valentines day that it has to be perfect. Valentines is just like ANY other day. Am I not right? So why fuss over it?

Valentines Day may be the day of love, but it also makes people realizes how lonely they are! I have one Valentine, my roommate! I love her a lot so i'm not ashamed to be her Valentine! Yes, we're desperate since we're both single, BUT its true that we love each other. haha


  1. I hate Valentines but again thats just cause i dont have someone lol, now if i did it would be a totally different story :)

  2. Joel calls it Single Awareness Day and he's proud of it. I'm not particularly fond of the "holiday" either. But it's no reason to get worked up. You're an awesome person and you'll find your special person when the time is right. So cliche, I know. But it's true. Love you!

  3. I have a girlfriend, and I still hate Valentines Day. If the only time throughout the year that you can get any real action is on Valentines Day, you're in a pretty shitty relationship or you really suck in bed. In addition, it's a chance for retailers to sell a lot of high margin merchandise in order to make a couple extra bucks after the Christmas season.
