Growing up, I HATED Valentine's day. I thought it was a day devoted to gross lovers and girls like me were supposed to sit at home in the dark and watch reruns of Gilmore Girls.
I thought about this a lot when I went to lunch and to see Gnomeo and Juliet (seriously. don't ask) with my best friend and his boyfriend. Yeah, you read that right.
I thought about it more as he whispered things to me in the dark of the movie theater. As there was a reference that only we got and we silently looked at each other and burst into fits of giggles that would be expected from the likes of 14 year olds.
I thought about this when I saw that my mom carefully iced a line of The Social Network onto my birthday cake this year.
And some more as my best far away friend sent me a text about my favorite author.
Valentine's day is about love for all kinds and I just hope that every sad, single person this year realizes that.
Love to you all.
