I've Never Had A Valentine, But That's Never Stopped Me From Being In Love With Valentine's Day

February 14th is a day couples overcompensate on big time. They give each other lavish flowers, chocolates, and gifts that would make you think they're celebrating some sort of anniversary. Nope. Just Valentine's Day, nothing out of the ordinary.

Instagram is going to vomit sentimental pictures and on Twitter, couples will be tweeting about just how happy they are to have found "the one." Do I sound like I'm painfully single and petty? I know I must sound that way because I am, in a sense.

I've never had a Valentine, and it's something I can say that I've always wanted. I definitely sound like a jealous hater, but that's far from the truth.

I'm an absolute sucker for Valentine's Day.

The love I can see between couples really comes out during this time of year. Everyone reflects on their partner and how much they've brought into their lives since they started seeing each other. I think the excessive presents and lovey-dovey language on posts is a tad too extra for my taste, but I still think it's still cute none the less. Buying gifts for those we love is one more way to show how much they mean to you. But, it's not all about the gifts of course. The whole point of the day is to be with your person and enjoy their company.

I love the color red for its symbolic meaning of passion. The passion you feel for the person you're with is something unfathomable to anyone except the two of you. While I can say I've felt that passion with guys in the past, it was never to the extent of those couples in actual, mature relationships. Embracing the passion of the color red is something we can see in stores everywhere. Clothes, candy, and more all colored various shades of red beckoning us to buy them for ourselves or for our significant others. Take that passion and say something amazing or go on a spontaneous trip to watch the sunset. The materialistic tendencies Valentine's Day ushers out of some couples should be pushed aside for passion, love, and thankfulness because there are plenty of us out there who don't have anyone to say goodnight to.

I love the idea of love and it's amazing that we have a designated day for it every year where everything comes to fruition. Loving whoever you want to love is the message Valentine's Day has always sent, and in 2019 that message is as clear as day to all. Love is what keeps relationships alive when hope seems lost and allows humanity to do the amazing things we have accomplished for centuries.

Yes, I'm jealous I'm not getting any gifts or romantic tweets about how much my imaginary boyfriend loves me. That being said, I'm so happy for those who do, and I only wish them the best in their relationships. Valentine's Day is a day we should all loves ourselves and those important in our lives, and I'll always love it for all that it stands for.

10 Signs The Guy You're Texting During Sylly Week Will Be Your Boyfriend By Finals Week

Trust me hunny, if he is actually interested, you can tell.


We've all had that guy in our message thread that we have a crush on but can't tell if he does too. It's a little nerve wrecking because us girls don't want to say to much and make him flee. It's a give and take kind of game that can be fun or stressful. When texting a guy, it's always a gamble.

Here are 10 signs that will tell you if he actually likes you:

1. He texts YOU first 

This is super, super telling. If he really likes you, he will want to initiate conversation. Plus, this means he is thinking about you.

2. He sends long, thought out messages 

Typically, guys aren't the biggest texters. They usually send short and to the point messages, but if he is sending you long and carefully constructed texts, you are heading in the right direction.

3. He texts you when he wakes up 

Everybody knows this is of extreme importance. There are so many things a guy thinks about when he first wakes up so if you receive that message it means you were one of the first things that came to his mind.

4. When you don't text back right away he asks what you were doing 

The longer you take, he either wont think anything of it or he will think nonstop why you're not responding. So, If he asks what you were doing you know he's interested.

5. He makes it a point to text throughout the day 

Guys typically hate texting and don't do it often. So if he texts you all day long you are important in his daily life.

6. Compliments, compliments, compliments 

Compliments tell it all! If he constantly is genuinely complimenting you he is 100% interested.

7. He is always asking you questions about yourself 

If he does this he wants to get to know you better, which is a very good sign.

8. He tries to make you laugh

Making a significant other laugh is normally incredibly important. So if he is always trying to make you laugh and it's successful, you are on the right track.

9. He lets you know what y'all would be doing if he was with you 

This means he is thinking and fantasizing about you and imagining what it would be like to be with you—the best sign you could receive.

10. He texts you when he is drunk 

Listen up girls, if he is texting you and he is blackout drunk then this is tell tale sign. Guys can rarely even remember their name when they are drunk let alone text. So, if this happens you are definitely on his mind.

There are always signs to let you know if a guy really likes you. Here are just a couple to give a little insider, but if he does these then girl you've got nothing to worry about. Go get him, girl.

10 Reactions You Have When Your Ex-Boyfriend Has A BABY, As Told By Michael Gary Scott

"Oh, my God! OK, it's happening!"


I don't know if I'm still too young or already old enough for my ex-lovers to start having children but either way, I'm freaking out.

Whether it's my ex or my friends, I am in utter shock because it's a reminder that I am not getting any younger. I'm stepping into a realm that I've never traverse before, and in all honesty, I don't think I'm ready.

There's nothing wrong about them having a child, settling down, and doing their thing but how the hell did time fly so fast? It's just that I can barely make my bed every day, let alone change a miniature human's diaper.

These were my reactions while stalking my ex on Instagram, as told by Michael Scott:

1. When you first hear the news 

2. "Wait how old were we?" 

3. "How old am I?" 

4. "No I'm not THAT old... am I?" 

5. "Can someone please tell me how and when did this happen?" 

6. "OMG, it's so small and chubbers" 

7. Two words—baby fever 

8. Then you remind yourself that you can't even take care of yourself 

9. Miss emotions about the whole ordeal 

10. You're actually really happy for them 

OMG, check these out
