See, I didn't get crazy about Valentine's Day
I could, I suppose. It's tempting. Even more than selling greeting cards, certain dates on the calendar are designed to get us to think on specific subjects, and though Valentine's Day can be a kind of sadistic way to cause one to ruminate on love and romance, it's worth thinking on.

My friends are all paired off, even if it's not serious in some cases. Jen's pregnant. They're all moving through this process, forming certain types of connections in order to establish families. Even Maureen and Anna are doing that, though not in the same exact path, obviously. Whereas I, right now, don't feel like being on a path. The part that sucks about that is that not wanting to be on a path doesn't keep a person from being lonely, and not just in terms of wanting to get laid. I want to do stuff with people, but not have it be pointed at anything, so to speak.

Maybe it's time to start dating again. I don't feel like less of a woman for not having a man, though sometimes I do feel like less of one - less of a person, even - for not wanting to go after one.
