OP, this is what you need to do: stop giving a shit about the perceptions that others might have of you, just because it's Valentines Day. Today is just like any other day, except men and women alike drain their bank accounts in feeble attempts to show their special someone that they "care". Last time I checked, love wasn't measured by how many boxes of chocolate and goofy looking teddy bears you bought for someone. You're single. Go out and enjoy yourself. Treat yourself to a nice di

Well put! Love is supposed to be shown year round, not just one day out of 365. It's how I have made things work, and it is the only recipe or success in any relationship!

There is also the good old, bitter, if-I-can't-have-love-no-one-can approach, of sitting on your roof with a sniper rifle, taking out every couple that strolls by. A tad extreme? maybe... hours of fun: guaranteed ;)

38 - that's a good idea! And as a bonus you will never be alone on valentines day ever again after that. The guards and other inmates will always be there to keep you company :)

#1- Thank you so so so so so so much for giving all of us hopeless, sympathy-seeking singles out here a reason to be happy today. And to anyone else who isn't happy today, just remember, sexy beasts like me and you are single today too. Sometimes the world just doesn't make sense.

I'm with 1. I'm in a relationship of almost a year and almost 7 months pregnant and I don't give a crap about this holiday. This is a made up holiday. Celebrate yourself if you feel the need to celebrate at all.

But you have to admit that being wanted is rewarding and showing it off just adds to the effect. It still is a bit sad though.

There's nothing wrong with it as long as you buy them because you want them. It's only sad when you try to impress other people by buying them

Well, you are right. It might not be the best for morale. That was only my take on the issue. I'll take those thumbs down as everyone is free to disagree.

Why not actually have a relationship with your family and talk about your life with them instead of creating a pathetic "plan". I'm sure they love you more than those flowers and chocolate :)

If you were already desperate to buy yourself roses, you can always lie and say your secret admirer left it there to show you that price is not a problem for your love.

Just go out and expand yourself to others. Easier said than done, but that's all you need to do, and most likely, you won't be buying yourself flowers.

Why would your family have the least bit of interest in your lack of Valentine this year? You're not going to be deemed a loser in their eyes until you act desperate and pathetic. I guess you just fulfilled that prophecy

Some families are judgmental about things like that. I've known a few people that have families like that, it's a horrible feeling.

Some families should be taught by example that certain things are none of their bloody business. A person with avid investment in a relative's love life is more of a pathetic weirdo than the one that just so happens to be single that year in my opinion.

Oh I totally agree with you, but sadly there are families out there that are too nosy, so I understand wanting to deter some of the questions.
