At least I don't have to share my pudding.

Happy Valentine's Day for all you lovers out there. The rest of us hate you. We're jealous, we hate your mushy crap, or both. It's "both" for me.

Added up, I probably have spent about six months of my life not being single. This, of course, largely consists of the time I experimented in college. Even then, that was hardly remarkable. Being single does bother me but I don't worry about it like I used to. You see, I used to have this romantic notion of finding a girl, marrying her, buying a house, and having kids. Each goal would be attained by a certain age. But as my life is clearly not on the track that I had hoped, I have come to accept that I don't know what's ahead. I don’t have lofty expectations anymore. So I take things as they come and try my best to make sure that I am making choices that will make me happy.

Maybe someday I will be able to celebrate this damn holiday with someone but I am not going to kick myself in the ass because I currently don't.

Valentine's Day was made up just to make people feel bad.

Three guesses who spent the day alone while her insignificant other helped his buddy fix his truck.

Romance is SO overrated!

First step in achieving your goal: leave that godawful two-horse town you live in.

You have two horses?! In my town we dream about having a second horse :-).

I don't have two horses. My next door neighbor has one though. But I do appreciate anon's point though.
