Worst Valentine’s Day Ever

by Erika Torres

This Valentine’s Day, I will be alone. ALONE. My first V-day as a married girl, and I will be ALOONNNE.

It’s really not all that bad, I just like to be dramatic. Eric has to work a full 24-hour shift from 7 a.m. Feb. 14 to 7 a.m. Feb. 15.

But I didn’t want to just not celebrate.

So this is what my Valentine’s Day will look like:

Thai food feast + He’s Just Not That Into You dvd + the other man in my life=

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I wasn’t going to let myself mope, so decided to use my 2 for 1 coupon and create my own Thai food feast–which I haven’t had in forever, so don’t mention this when I write complaining about how I can’t lose weight–I got He’s Just Not That Into You on Netflix, and will be cuddling up with my furry love, Bentley.

So it’s really not that bad of a Valentine’s Day.

In fact, it doesn’t even compare to that time my boyfriend of two years decided to take a “break” the day before Valentine’s Day and got back together with me the day after Valentine’s Day. I think he did it just so he wouldn’t have to get me anything. Yeah, that was definitely my worst Valentine’s Day ever.

SO make me feel better–what was your worst Valentine’s Day ever???

My BFF broke up with her 7th grade boyfriend on Valentine’s Day. She’s married with a kid on the way and we STILL make fun of her for it.

I’ve been in a lot of long distance relationships so I usually spent Valentine’s Day sans boyfriend, but I’ve never had a bad one. I always had wonderful friends to spend it with. We’d go to the spa or get ice cream. We actually waited 2 hours to be sat in our friend’s section when she was working on Valentine’s Day.

Well, if you count the actual day I’m working a 9 hour day tomorrow massaging and I asked them to book me so they posted we weren’t busy so I’ll probably be murdered with appointments tomorrow and I’ll be too tired to celebrate it. And, I’ve broken up with guys just before Valentine’s Day and got them gifts and have been broken up before Valentine’s Day too. So, it’s not terrible, but the actual day is gonna be like a V-day for me at work!

I am not sure what was my worst valentines day but I would be willing to bet that it was the 3 I spent in middle school wishing that a boy would sent me one of those cheap carnations to my class. Ugh!

Thai food sounds delicious right now…yum! Have a fun nice with your “furry” other man. 🙂

Tell me he’s making up for it with a fabulous gift. . . Or at least date night another night. . . 😉 Just kidding. . . Sort of.

Valentine’s Day was never really a big deal to me until the year my guy was training for his upcoming overseas mission, and he was in CA while I was in MN. Luckily, we’re done with that and will be spending the night together, tomorrow.

Feb. 2008. My 4 year relationship with EE ended 7 days after our 4 year anniversary (Feb. 1) and 6 days before Valentine’s day. Let’s just say I was an emotional wreck. Valentine’s day is just a day anyway. You have an amazing man all the time! =)

My ex-boyfriend broke up with me on Valentine’s Day. It was awesome.

Before I met my boy, I had a terrible valentines day filled with, well, nothing. So I bought cards and put them on peoples winsheilds annonymously, hoping it would put a smile on somebodys face.
Your dog is soooo cute!

Aww! WELL if it makes you feel any better…at least you won’t be cooped up on airplanes all day tomorrow like me 😉 But it DOES suck to be alone on your first Valentine’s Day married! Your plan to ‘celebrate’ sounds awesome though and I can’t wait to catch up on Thursday! (as for bad Valentine’s Days….hmm, probably the first Valentine’s Day after my ex-husband and I were separated was tough)
