I’ve got 10 events in 10 days at work so I’m reposting some old content I find funny. New content will resume on February 6th.
Reposted from 2017:
I can’t tell you how HAPPY it makes me to embrace my bitterness and frustration and write these posts.
I want to send all my single friends nasty little “VD sux” cards.
I want to wear a TOXIC LOVE sweatshirt to work with bitter little earrings and just wallow in anger and self-pity.
For once, I don’t want to be optimistic and positive and try to see my situation as temporary and enjoyable.
I just want to be mad.
Because on Valentine’s Day, being single SUCKS.
No one loves me.

I just realized that the next big holiday coming round the corner ready to brain me with hearts, red/pink flowers, chocolate, and saccharine sentiment is VALENTINE’S DAY.
Oh how I HATE Valentine’s Day!
A whole frigging day devoted to love and reminding me that I am single.
As if I need a reminder.
My whole existence is ONE BIG REMINDER that no one wants me.
Okay, that’s a lie.
Lots of people want me and love me, but no one who regularly climbs into bed with me and does the nasty with me.
When it comes to romantic love, I’m fresh out.
And that’s why I don’t need an entire day to remind me of that.
I have ALL THIS LOVE TO GIVE and NO PLACE TO PUT IT.
So, as typical for me, I intend to post my Anti-Valentine’s Day gifts – courtesy of etsy.com – so that you too can be bitter and angry like me.
So here it goes, Round #1 of Anti-Valentine’s Day sentiments:
Men just have it easier
Do I really have to explain myself?
We live in a misogynistic world and it’s so much easier to be a man (and a white man at that), than it is to be a woman.
- Women give birth.
- Women are typically tasked with the lion’s share of raising the kids.
- Women get paid less for the same job that men do.
- Women are frequently the target of violence.
- Women are objectified (see target of violence, above).
This is no scientific discourse on women’s rights, though.
It’s about the dinner I was at the other night.
Everyone was SO CONCERNED about the single man in the room. The man who had been single for less than a year.
Was there a peep about me? 10 years single and running?
Who cares? Just another single woman.
I personally think that people PREFER me that way.
- I date men then get ghosted.
- I get invited to be the third wheel in a threesome.
- Married men propose wicked things to me.
Everyone is willing to take, but no one is willing to give back.
Basically, what I’m saying is what I’ve been trying to ignore for the past decade. . . THERE ARE A LOT OF SHITTY MEN OUT THERE AND THEY’RE ALL MEETING ME.
I know. This goes against my optimistic outlook on life.
I hate to think I’m bitter.
But after that dinner, I think it’s safe to admit that I am.
Bitter, that is.
And DEFINITELY not in a good place.
