Welcome, all members of the “Unvalentined Tribe!”
We all know what February 14th is.
But for those who were left at 50 and are singletons this year, I feel we should rename February 14th for ourselves and call it, “Unvalentined Day.”
That is the day we celebrate that we are no longer with the man we used to call our Valentine.
It’s a good day for us, not a sad day.
We will be looking forward to not having our hearts broken once again for the gifts we won’t get or the half-hearted flowers that used to show up at the door during those “ending years.”
“Thanks honey,” you would say dryly to the back of his head as he sat on the couch watching old episodes of The Sopranos in silence. How uncomfortable was that?
“Hey! I don’t love you and you don’t love me, Happy Valentines Day!” How do you find a card for that?
Luckily for us, those days are over. All of us Unvalentined gals can skip through this day freely and joyfully. Maybe buy ourselves a piece of jewelry or a red velvet brownie. (They are really both the same value to us, aren’t they? Ha!)
So enjoy your Unvalentined day and congratulations on not being in a phony couple with phony love gestures anymore.
That’s not what Cupid would have wanted.
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
