Happy day to you too, Ann!

(If it weren't so early, I might think your little dancing guy had been drinking!)

Now that I look at the dancer more closely, he does look tipsy.

Is that awareness of single things? Of things being single? One-mindedness? Single mindedness? Being unmarried and unattached? (perplexed and too lazy to google)

OK. I'll explain. I saw my 16 year old son posted "Happy single awareness day" on FB. Then it occurred to me how acutely aware people are of their relationship status on Valentine's Day. Single or Married with Disappointments.

I should have called it "Relationship Awareness Day"...or "Lackluster Love life Day".

I'm guessing that people have one good Valentine's Day...maybe at age 18 or 19 totally enchanted with each other, and then it's all downhill from there. Valentine's Day thereafter recurs as a bit of a downer. So I tried to brighten it up by having a stick man dance...but it turned out he was just stumbling around drunk.

In other words, this wish for a happy day goes out to all those who feel alone on Valentine's day (whether they're in a relationship or not). So yes, Nikolas, your situation counts. smile

Happy Valentine's Day. This year I posted gifts to all of my single friends and I have to say their excitement made the day so much better. I normally feel somewhere in between not bothered and vaguely depressed.

Thanks for your honesty. I try not to let Valentine's Day bother me. This time was one of my more successful tries. Then as it turned out a student brought me a 3.5 oz Ghiradelli chocolate bar with raspberry filling. What a surprise! I decided that for the moment, I like Valentine's Day after all.

In the full reply box (the one you get to when you click "reply" to a specific post) there's a button (4th one along from the left) which is "enter an image". You link to an online image using that.

You know, they have "Gay Pride Week" . . . & I'm straight as an arrow. I don't get all depressed cause they won't let me in on their parade,

You know, I think Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate couples.
It's one day, . . . not a week!

If you singles want a day, make one! But leave Valentine's Day for Lovers! It's just one day. Enjoy all the other 364 days of the year.

Just sayin'

Well... just sayin'

I think you lovers can celebrate 365 days a year all you want and nobody's stopping you! And this is coming from a person who's been in love with his wife for more than 10 years now! wink

Well they now have "Grandparent's Day"! I'm not crying in the sink cause I'm not a grandparent!

I say if you are single be happy for those who are in a relationship. Don't do the sour grapes thing! Celebrate Valentine's Day for them. And be happy for those who are couples! If your parents didn't become a couple and fall in love, you wouldn't be here! More reason to say, go Valentine's Day! Let's hear it for Lovers!

Just sayin' again!

Ann said: "In other words, this wish for a happy day goes out to all those who feel alone on Valentine's day (whether they're in a relationship or not)."

Can't you appreciate this wish from Ann without calling it "sour grapes" and "crying in the sink"? If you can't be happy that others not in your position are wishing each other a happy day, then I feel kind of sorry for you. After all, it's not taking anything away from you, is it.

But hey, have a happy day anyway.

Oh it is too crying in the sink & sour grapes. Not an approachable look from what I can see.

Well... It's 8:58 in the morning over here and Valentines' Day is over now. I'm guessing that it should be close to an end to Canada as well...

I'd wish for you to keep being happy and in love for all days of your life.

As for some of us who may have unfortunate circumstances and couldn't celebrate yesterday as we wish, let us be.

Even more so because even if we were with those who we love, we could very well not celebrate that special day, cause it's NOT special. At least for me every day is a Valentine's day, when my wife's with me!

curra: I believe Dianne was talking to me, rather than Ann... but still...

It's inspirational to hear you feel this way. smile

I'm glad my thread generated some conversation. And ezpiano learned how to attach a picture.

One update: my son said 4 or 5 girls walked around high school yesterday with GREAT big teddy bears. I have to admit this makes me chuckle...thinking of teens and their responses to Valentine's Day.

Just a thought about love.

Did anybody see "A Beautiful Mind"? In it Graham Nash is the emotionally distant/disconnected sort. Still a woman falls in love with him and marries him. And later he becomes mentally ill and she sticks with him. Not sure how true the movie version is, but this is the sort of love I can admire. Perhaps no longer feeling the joy, but a certain devotion is there. That's beautiful.

As opposed to "Whee! We're in LOVE!"

I think you mean John Nash.
Graham Nash is the rocker who played (plays?) with Crosby and Stills.

I have made that mistake a few dozen times, and it always makes me chuckle to think of the two of them trading places.

And Ogden Nash is the esteemed poet, who wrote such classics as:

Quote:
If you behold a panther crouch,
Be prepared to holler ouch.
Better yet, if called by a panther,
Don't anther.


and many more almost as good.

LOL! You're right!

Another update: I had lunch at a local Indian restaurant today, and the waitress told me that it was "crazy" last night (restaurant extremely busy). So lots of folks dining out on Valentine's Day. Good for them. My husband prefers not to celebrate that day. I'm getting used to it. And grateful that I could meet a friend for lunch today. smile

Adding Ogden Nash to the Nash mixup game makes me laugh outright.

(imagine the rock and roll lyrics!
Imagine the wall covered in bits of paper with odd rhymes
Imagine equations written with guitar chords and animal sketches!)

The ant has made himself illustrious
Through constant industry industrious.
So what?
Would you be calm and placid
If you were full of formic acid?
