Sorry not sorry if this makes me sound bitter as hell but I fucking hate Valentine’s Day. As someone who is chronically single and most of the time quite happy to be so, Valentine’s Day still hits me like a slap in the face every February, making me you question how everyone else is managing to hold down normal relationships while I’m still getting left on “read”. If you read my last post about the Welsh Valentine’s Day you may be intrigued to know what, if anything, has happened with the potential love matches mentioned there. No prizes for guessing that those possibilities have gone to shit already and so yes, I am spending the 14th February alone, again. This year, as luck would have it, I am actually on my period this Valentines’ which is perfect timing because it means that at least I can’t set myself up with a sympathy shag and end up regretting it the next day.
There are about a billion blog and magazine articles out around this time of year advising you on the best place to date on Valentine’s and because taking relationship advice from me would be on a par with taking dating advice from an owl, I’ve decided to write you a little “Do’s and Don’t”’s list if you’re single on Valentine’s Day.
