This card has been dragged out for sale every year at my local dodgy newsagents and I finally bought it because it cracks me up every time I see it.

Such sentiment!

The question isn't "Is there someone out there that's right for me?"

It should be (and usually is) "Is there someone out there who I am right for?"
Someone else also said this earlier in the thread, and I agree with both of you. I'm insecure in a lot of ways but when it comes to relationships, I know what I can bring to one and what my strengths (and weaknesses) are. Everything's a bit too raw for me right now but I'm hoping that with some time, I can look back and see what I brought to my marriage and what I can do to improve so that I'm a better partner whenever that happens the next time around.

Gonna lay down some wisdom for you all:

Bitching about everyone else being coupled off or how "Valentine's SUCKS!" is infinitely more irritating, self-absorbed, and short-sighted than *ANY* couple boasting of their coupledom will ever be.

I get being single and lonely is tough on a day like this, but its only as tough as you let it be.
To be fair, people haven't been bitching too much around here. Which I think is pretty awesome. Maybe it's because I'm enjoying being freshly single, but I don't think it's that tough to be single on a day like today. Maybe if I was in high school that kind of thing would suck more, but otherwise, it's just a day that you can choose to participate in or not.

I totally high-fived with my bank teller today over being single. We were both in great moods. Sometimes things are only as bad as you make them.

rageforthemachine, that's great! Congrats man! .

Thank you very much.

The funny thing was for years nothing made me roll my eyes more than when people said "and you know it is when you aren't looking for it that it happens the most". Then one day this girl e-mailed me out of the blue asking about something I posted on a psychology newsgroup. 14 years later here we are.

I've been much more of a lurker here for awhile now so I don't think I mentioned it before. 2012 was quite a year for me. Believe it or not I am not at all suicidal and don't even consider myself a "depressed person" anymore. Hmmm maybe I just don't have anything else to talk about. Thanks always Kestra.

Iguana is Italian. They are genetically predisposed to be irresistible.
In that case, Berlusconi and quite a few others must be changelings from other countries

Well, I hate to admit it, but Berlusconi was relatively handsome in his youth. Of course, over time, the evil inside him seeped out in the form of black phlegm and hair grease.

So if a relationship goes bad, would that count as a 'warp core breach'?

Ejection systems are off line.

Maybe, but they might live 10,000 miles away and you will never meet.
