Come along of course that is meant to say. They ic be interested to see what cow along meant ....
I really, really, really hate Valentines Day.
I hate it because it is commercial clap-trap. It's nothing more than an excuse for chocolate, flowers and all manner of kitsch to be sold at inflated prices.
I hate it because our local Tesco can manage 4 aisles devoted to cards and chocs et.c.....and then has no fresh milk (yes, it happens at Christmas too...and Easter...and Summer when they big BBQ displays come out...and September for Back-To-School...and Halloween....maybe I hate Tesco rather than Valentines?)
I hate it because TV will have some stupid sloppy mushy trash on, and I much prefer thrillers, whodunits and Sci-Fi.
And most of all I hate it because I can't take part in it!
I am one of the lonely, missed out, sad and just-everso-slightly-bitter ones. For most of the year I cope. I'm actually a cheerful soul who copes amazingly well with a somewhat-difficult life. But at this time of year I just feel it more.
I don't want to be alone. I want to be loved. I want to love someone in return. I want someone to tell me how special and adorable I am.
But for me, I can't see it ever happening. I'm Aspie. I don't go out anywhere. Add to this physical problems and I am often housebound. I don't use a phone. I am an elective mute...I don't to people...even if someone does eventually come (or cow!!!) along, how will I communicate with them?....and that's before you hit my trust-issues!
And yet, for some stupid, unfathomable reason I can't give up hope! Maybe someday some amazing person will knock at the door and teach me how to trust and love them!....Please let it be soon...I'll be fifty this year....I've been alone for too long now....
I always thought St Valentines Day was about declaring love to someone who doesn't know it?
Commercialism has made it spread to declaring love to anyone in recent years?
Hello!! Another lonely heart here! Who is planning on waiting until the silly day is over and prices have returned to normal then treating MYSELF to a nice bunch of flowers and a box of chocolates! Valentines night will be spent at my parents, just like every Monday night, watching Coronation Street and taking each other on at University Challenge! It can't get any worse, hopefully, than a few years ago when I found myself in the same position, it was a Saturday night and my best friend of the time phoned me to share the happy news that she'd just got engaged! Thanks! Spent the rest of the evening in floods of tears bemoaning the fact that I was sat at home with my parents on Valentine's Night while everyone else in the world was out getting engaged!! Eight or so years later and I am back to square one! Oh, dear....
I'm another lonely heart newly single so hate it even more. I do think though that tv programmes are insensitive banging on about it. Yesterday on daybreak they said 'happy valentines day its just around the corner' I just think its nice for couples but tv does not even need to be going on about it and I especially don't want to watch any surprise tv proposals!
Am not a lonely heart but hate V Day with a passion as it's commercial nonsense. I show my lvoe for OH and vice versa as and when we don;t need a day for it. We were in TEsco the other day and I said we aern't doing Valentines are we? He said nah it's a load of &^%$$" and we carried on witht he shopping. So no embarrassing situations where one has and the other hasn't.
I don't hate Valentine's Day, I don't celebrate it either.
I see the stuff in the shops and keep on walking past without any thoughts.
Not a lonely heart but will join the club of those who think v day is just ridiculous.
We will be having a normal monday night in. Years ago I was taken out for valentines day and hated every bloody moment of it.
Its just gone ridiculous, went from a sweet day to a crazy overrated holiday (and BTW has anone seen that Olay ad? I would kill someone who bought me anti wrinkle cream for Valentines day!). We're doing card only.
I have a lovely male friend who is single (late 20's) in East Midland (I think its classed as there) more into the simples pleasures though which most women (he meets) seem to dislike x
My kidneys are not lonely, ther are two of those to keep one another company, but my liver is. Will that do?
