Celebrate Valentine's Day with friends and family

See also

It's easy to get caught up in the tornado of manufactured love known as Valentine's Day. It's a day of couples doing what couples should be doing depending on their own timeline, but en masse. If you're single this week, it's no wonder that some turn to a pint of ice cream and/or a tub of cookie dough! Even radio DJs talk about how they have not had a date for this special day for xyz amount of years. However, it is not always this way and Valentine's Day is not just a day for couples, it's a day of celebrating love! Love can be celebrated with family and friends, not just the significant other. Perhaps celebrate the federal government's extension of legal benefits to same- sex marriage in all states, including states where same- sex marriage is not legal. It is OK to be without a Valentine or not be in a relationship, who says you need to have either to celebrate? Year round, family and friends are the type of people who will listen and who will lend a hand when in need. Love is more than romantic love, it's sisterly, motherly, brotherly. Spending time at home, going to the movies or going out to a lovely restaurant are all great things that one can do to spend a little time with friends and family. Or if you want to try something unconventional, perhaps reserving a paintball session or challenging each other at video games would be more suited for your tastes. Valentine's Day has a special place in everyone's hearts as a day of celebration, but remember that there are more than one kind of love and it is good to celebrate it all.
