Love knows no boundaries, so does being loveless on Valentine's Day.

Thursday, February 11, 2010


Let’s face it. Valentines is not for everybody. It’s a reality, which I despondently accepted for most of the years in my life – thank you. But that doesn’t mean that Melai and Jason and the rest of their kind can get to celebrate this Valentines. Sure, you may not have someone in your life right now with whom you could spend nights playing sudoku or something else in the bedroom. Or you may not be the best looking guy/girl/neuter in your barrio. Or you may be too gay-ishly gay to ask someone out. But, let me tell you this. You can make the most out of your day doing something else.

If your friends will ask what your plans are for Valentines, go ahead and tell ‘em, “Have to go to Church in the morning, afternoon, and in the evening” or “I have a shitload of work to do the following day.” It’s a Sunday so come up with all sorts of lame Sunday excuses!

But you need not be sad or be jealous of other couple going out on a date HHWW pa-sway sway pa, taking advantage of the cover of night, lurking in the darkness doing something else. I mean, these are people who are too busy or who absolutely fail to see that every goddamn day should be a day to sweep their partners off their feet and spread them apart. Amen?

Listen. Go out. Arrange with your Dota friends for a camping in a café. Call one of your gay friends and ask him if he wants to go to the mall with you. Some of them become extra generous during Valentines, mind you. Be careful, though. Get in touch with your ex and make her realize that her life would not have been miserable if the two of you are still together. Eat. Drink. Be merry. Stalk? For the love of God, just do anything and drag your ass out of your filthy room!

So, dude, wipe away your tears. Raise your head up high. Smile. Tell everybody you’re single. Be proud! At least you can play ding-dong with Mary Palmer unconditionally.

Don't rub it in naman sa mga loveless. I mean it's just another day... I prefer to go out after Valentine's, too many people out on that day. Hassle.

I've never been a fan of Valentine's day mainly because I've always competed with it for my birthday celebration. It's hard to drag along drinking buddies when they're supposed to be out taking their girlfriends out for a romantic night.
