Since I've been on both sides of this coin, I want to share a couple of thoughts. First, if you are a Valentine, and you think you can get by on bringing the romance once a year, think again. Keep that fire burning regularly and it will keep you warm. Ladies and gents, I mean it, we've got to bring it and not just complain about it not being there. Refer to my post yesterday for some inspiration on bringing it ;). Although I'll admit everyone looks sexier in black and white.
Don't Be Mine-Be Yours ;)
And now for those who aren't with a significant other just now. I would like to pose the thought that romance in life is about a lot more than just a person. I've learned you can live a pretty lovely life, filled with beauty, goodness, doing for others, and love, in times of being single as well. Buy yourself the fresh flowers, use the good stuff, cook a fabulous meal for a friend or just yourself. Keep that calendar filled enough that you don't have too much down time alone for your liking. Travel, adventure, enjoy. Guess what? you don't have to work around any one else at this time in life. My best tip, when life seems lonely, is to do something good for someone else. My mom was right, it's a sure fire cure for getting us out of the blues. So rather than 'be mine' I say 'be yours' and that's pretty fabulous!
