Happy Singles Awareness Day!

Ah yes, Valentines day. A day where lovers get together and the whole world seems to want to shove it the faces of all who are single.

Now, speaking as a single guy, I don't really hate Valentines Day. Afterall like many other things in todays world, its lost its meaning to pretty much everyone. The word love itself is a hallmark greeting that might as well mean "Pass the salt."

I did hate this holiday in the past, just because many of my previous girlfriends had chosen to break it off right before Valentines Day. But I have since realised that this day is just another day unless you have someone you truely love to share it with.

Love is a complicated thing, and I would not presume to know everything about love, and those who claim to only think they do. Love is as complex as developong a hyperdrive that powers itself completly on nachos.

Today, love is described with long, pretty and even abstract words that nobody knows, and everyone who is in love believes in a sort of ignorant  self truth that no one feels what they share.

Two against the world is a romantic concept indeed, and although many try to apply this to their relationship, I think its a rather unhealthy concept that could place distance between lovers and friends.

Love can also be pain for some because they fall in love with someone who doesn't reciprocate the feeling, or someone who wants nothing to do with them. People can't help who they fall in love with. Thats what makes the feeling such a cold hearted bastard. It doesn't give a shit, it just tells you "Hey, see that girl? Whenever you see her, I'm going to make you feel all funny, and make you anxious when ever your around her." Which is such a dick move, but it can't be helped.

I'm not trying to take all the romance out of love and boil it down to an equation or anything. I believe in love, and as much as I wish I didn't, I believe in love at first sight. What I think about it and what I feel about it have about as much in common as a mallard and prom night dumpster baby. I THINK its creepy to suggest that you fell in love with someone when you first saw them. Its shallow because you don't know anything of their personality, however I FEEL that we as humans pick up on things without even knowing what they are. It could be body language, or just something about them that we sense without knowing.

Example: There is this girl I know, and I have felt strange about her ever since we first met. She looked just like another person, but at the same time, she didn't. I can't explain it, but something I noticed about her was that every once in a while, she would touch something. Like not accidentaly, she would touch something, and feel it for a moment. Of course, you wouldn't notice because she would do it every so often while she was talking to people or doing something. I kinda felt like a freak because I don't know why I noticed it and I didn't know why I liked it. (Not "like", as in "Oh that makes me so hot, lets bone!" you pervs >:/) There was just something about it.

Of course, because I have the backbone of a worm, I didn't talk to her about how I felt, and thats kinda what sucks the most. My inabitions are a constant bother when it comes to things like this. XP

But (And this is the most important part!) Life goes on. I have had chances in the past to try and do something about it, and I've let them slip away. A lesson was learned, and I hope that one day I will have the oportunity to go where I couldn't before, but until then, I won't let it get me down. Sure, I may have an off day here and there, but thats normal.

The point is that life goes on. I think this is what we all tend to forget when things look like shit. 

I'm not sure what the purpous of life is, but to me, its not to fall in love. Falling in love is just one of the best perks.

Another thing to remember is that love is a gamble. There is a chance that the other may not feel the same way. This is something we must try to remember, but not dwell on. Being prepared is half the battle. And if it turns out that thats the way it is, then at least you tried. And you have to respect their wishes, otherwise you'll be a creepy stalker, and they suck big basket balls.

So to all of those in love, I say go for it! For those who have found love, hope you have spent a beautiful day together, and to all those who are single, don't give up, because giving up is for pussys.

As for me, I'll just be eating my boxed lunch alone at the Y. And you know what? I don't mind terribly. :3
