40 Something & Single on Valentines Day

Apparently Valentines Day has become a day for battle of the sexes! Ok, some guys really are into Valentine’s Day but I find, from my recent personal dating experiences, that when I asked the guy how he felt about it - without hesitation – the response was an emphatic,

“I hate Valentine’s Day!”
Whoa! Stop the presses!!! Take it easy…I was just asking. Geesh! Relax…at nearly 50 years old I can afford to buy myself presents…

Jay Leno said it best for the guys:
Today is Valentine's Day. Or, as men like to call it, Extortion Day."

Fine. Be that way. 
No sexy lingerie for you underneath my rockin' red cocktail dress over a romantic dinner at my favorite restaurant. Whatever.

However, I like to think of Valentine’s Day as a moment to stop and tell those I care about how much I love them if I haven’t lately. That’s all. End of story. This quote from an unknown author says it best:  "Love is just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning." 

Now go give someone you care about a hug and an I love you  ;)
Happy Valentine’s Day - EVERYONE,
