Solo Valentine!

First time in, well, as long as I can remember. Valentine all alone...and lonely! Tricks to beat the blues? Managed to put my snowshoes at the back of the car and went straight from work for a hike up in the snow, looking at sunset across the lake, a couple of pick-me up yodels and a "pain au chocolat". Next?

I doubt that anyone could beat that!
Sounds like the perfect Valentine when you enjoy your own company!

Re: Solo Valentine!

We just got back from the ski service place...the guy vehemently putting my date of birth 10yr younger and signalling he is single, it was hillarious. Just because I fit in a 14yr size of DC jacket. Cmoooonnnnnnn.

Tonight is the night. A pile of ironing, a pile of papers to grade and me.

Re: Solo Valentine!

I got an Amazon Alexa yesterday. It's just like being married - I make a perfectly reasonable request, and she either doesn't understand, or won't do what I want.

I also spent St. Valentine alone. I was also denied the right to a grilfriend! Life is extremely unfair!

Denied the right?! I know it's been warm, but a tad early for a barbeque get-together?

It is my right to have a girlfriend. But the system is working against me and denied me a girlfriend! So I had to spend st. valentine alone, unlike anyone else!

You missed this other lonely heart.
Apparently there was a virtual 'try before you buy' as well:
