    Married.
    But in a mood as IF I were all single.
    Totally no Valentine's Day mood.
    But then that is nothing unusual for me. I have NEVER IN ALL MY LIFE been in Valentine's Day mood.
    At times when that mood COULD still have occurred, Valentine's Day was all unknown in my country and the idea had not yet spread.
    Meanwhile well over 20 years have gone by, the idea is spreading, but is not reaching me and won't ever reach me, either.
    My sig-smilies may say differently, but this is only because I tried to find something to go with the fact that it is February, winter never was ... so the snowman just did not seem to apply too well.

    Well, I used to only hate V-day when I was single....


    ....but now I think it's even worse when you have a tentative date with a REALLY nice guy, but you're gonna MISS v-day!

    So....if we hit it off, I have to wait a full year! :p

    (I'm a super-duper hopeless utter romantic at heart....what can I say? )

    ah, to be single........oh wait, i am.
    I dont feel anything with the whole valentine thing. If i would send something to someone, i would do it on any other day but v-day. Think its to commercial nowadays.
