Valentine’s Day is coming.
And already I know what I’m doing.
I’m getting dressed up in a onesie, heading out to downtown for an un-valentiney Valentine’s Day pub crawl.
Now, we all know I’m game for anything that starts with beer and ends with more beer.
But this is more than just a progressive.
This is a powerful statement about the pressures put on people to see life in terms duality instead of complexity – from genders to relationships.
Yup, that’s a nod to my trans and poly friends.
Good things come in more than just two.
I’m going to get dressed in my onesie and join my fellow single and coupled up friends in celebrating a day for love, be it romantic or based on friendship, in a very non-traditional way.
Nadine will be joining me, so I have that to look forward to.
Sometimes I feel like the measure of my happiness is NOT the health of my romantic relationship/s but instead in the strength of my female friendships.
I’ll be celebrating that for Valentine’s Day, instead of feeling bad for myself or lonely.
