Valentines Day my way

I'm not that into Valentine's Day as a romantic holiday. I do find it contrived and I hate the over focus on couples for the day. Especially because all the ads emphasize that showing your feelings for someone is done via 'romantic' dinners or flowers. [except I do love the chocolate] R. has much the same feelings about the day. However, I did feel that since we were going out, that we were obliged to at least spend the day together. It seems just as silly to me to avoid the damn day as it does to get all nutty and emotional about it.

At the same time, I do think that Valentine's Day is hell for people who are recently single. There was one friend of mine who went through a difficult break-up this year , and I hadn't seen him in ages. I suggested to R. that we go out drinking with him. The two had never met and I figured that they would get along great. I wasn't wrong. I also figured that this would get my friend to not get morose thinking about his ex.

We had a great time at the Madison pub, ate crap food, and got absolutely trashed. R. ended up having to put his hands on my shoulders and guide me home I was having so much trouble walking in a straight line. Then once we were home alone we did do some couple activities: we had wild drunken sex.

What made the evening special to me, apart from the fact that I'm a drunken whore and love evenings like that, is that my bf was willing to spend the evening with one of my friends and didn't insist that we do something alone together. It meant the world to me that we used our current happiness to spend some time with someone very close to me who was feeling a bit lost this year.

That sounds nice. Wild drunken sex is awesome, and I don't think you can be considered a whore if it's with your boyfriend. Correct me if I'm wrong, lol. We never do anything for VD, never have. Working in the restaurant biz made me loathe the "holiday".

You're awesome, you know that? So caring. And I'm jealous of the drunken sex. Haven't had that in AGES.

I'm starting to really like R. He has impeccable taste in women, and he sounds cool and fun.

Now all he needs are some bi tendencies...

Torn: My brother hates NYE because of the many years he worked as a bartender

Freak: Ah, drunken sex is so great.

Dan: Okay, you can borrow R., but I get to watch.

I watched Lost and had chocolate Häagen-Dazs. By myself. And LOL'd at the anti-valentines at meish.org.
