There is always some sort of pressure that comes with Valentine's Day. Do you go big and try to impress her? Do you play it low key and spend the day at home? Do you treat it as any other day because you already have your weekly date night? Do you go out and try to find someone or stay at home and celebrate the single life?
With all the possible answers to all of these questions, it can be easy to just throw up your hands and call it a day. It doesn't matter what you do, as long as you love her, right? It doesn't matter what you do, because you're spending the day alone anyway, right?
Those answers are partially true. Anything you do for your girl, as long as you do it from the heart, is the right thing. Think of something she loves to do that you put up a fight about doing with her or something you both love to do together. Anywhere you go, and anything you do, as long as you show some gesture of love, the actual gift doesn't matter. It can be tempting to take the easy way out and claim that Valentine's Day is a commercial holiday or is only for heterosexuals. The truth of the statement is irrelevant. The fact is that Valentine's Day has become a part of our culture, and even if it's just a cute lesbian card from 10percent.com, a little 'I love you' can go a long way.
For the single lesbians, it is important not to get down on yourself. The best kind of love comes when you are ready for it, so gather your pets and stuffed animals and single friends, pop some popcorn, and pop in "But I'm a Cheerleader" or "Imagine Me and You". Just because you're single doesn't mean you can't enjoy a good lesbian love story.
