Oh, Jammers, what to tell ya. I understand Valentine's Day holds meaning for women and can be hard for someone facing one single for the first time in a long time, but it's just a Hallmark Holiday. You gonna go through this again when Sweetest Day rolls around?<quoted text>
I'm not usually such a girl about this stuff, believe me. But this is my first V-day as a single person in a very long time, I haven't been single very long yet, AND my ex is dating someone new. That's a tough pill to swallow. I have a lot of pain and anger, irrational as that part is, that I don't know what to do with.
Don't wanna belittle your heartache, but don't want to validate it either. Valentines day sucks! Last year, tried to go out to a number of "nice" restaurants. 7:30 at night (I had to work late) and EVERY place still had a wait time of over an hour and a half! Ended up settling on Bakers Square where the wait time was only 20 minutes. How romantic!
Get together with your single girlfriends, drink plenty of wine and have a tickle fight in your underwear, and burn a man in effigy.
The longer you dwell on your sorrow, the longer it will take to move on. Embrace being single! ENJOY being single!
