Re: 2nd Annual Valentine's Day Extravaganza!

Valentine's day is probably one of the harder days for single people (who want to be in a relationship). In general as a single person there are only a handful of times a year where I feel lonely or feel it more strongly, my birthday, new years day and Valentines day to a certain extend. Like I said before it's not that I don't mind being single but one can't need easily swirch emotions on and off. It's best not to dwell too much on what you don't have but rather what you have.
I understand and sympathize. New years is never a problem for me luckily because me and my small group of geek friends decided a few years ago that we celebrate that together. None of us is especially lucky in the relationship area, but we never feel like we're missing something at New years at least

Regarding the single life, I do get what you're saying about the freedom of it. I like it as well, but at times it feels like I'd be willing to give up that freedom for someone to share it with. It's not as important as it used to be to me, but even so.

Sure I have friends that I go and see, but most of my firends are paired up these days. And you can feel like a third wheel at times.

Can we try to keep this thread a little more positive? I really don't need to hear about the issues of being single right now!

You are loved by many. It is seen in many a thread here on the BBS.

Re: 2nd Annual Valentine's Day Extravaganza!

I sent out three as well. Seemed like the perfect number.

The iguana just won the thread.

Turn off the lights. We're done here.

Okay guys, one more day left! For those of you who have submitted requests recently, I'm still working on entering them. You'll get a PM from me confirming your request after I'm done.

Re: 2nd Annual Valentine's Day Extravaganza!

I have had a brilliant idea!!!!

I am sending no flowers this year because of my flowers being the flowers of death (see beginning of thread).

A lot of people are going to be reading this thread and thinking, "maybe someone" or even "maybe that person I like" will send me a flower! And then COME THE DAWN their mailbox will be empty.

Well if that happens to you I encourage you to remember that you were on my list. It would have been anon and it would have been white and it would have been in your mailbox if I wasn't superstitiously abstaining from this little ritual. Only my fear has left your mailbox empty. It's not you, it's me.
