eZine #5: Valentines Day

Valentine’s Day is coming!  
Scarey isn’t it? No you didn’t miss it- I’m giving you LOTS of warning.

I’ve never really liked Valentine’s Day. In fact I’ve historically hated it. I remember when I was in high school feeling like I was supposed to be with someone and feeling like there was something wrong with me because I didn’t. Everyone else getting flowers or candies- I felt left out and alone.

Now though, I’m married, so I have someone every year! YEAH!
But even in marriage I’ve spent a few years despising the candy and flower filled celebration.

Why? Because I don’t like being told I have to be romantic. I don’t like having that kind of pressure forced on me. The pressure of an expensive date, flowers, presents and everything else that the day typically expects.
