VD Date

Now that I’ve been alone for over a year, I get it. I get why people want to be alone.

Nobody to boss you.
You can make your own decisions, and they stick.
No one to tell you that you aren’t good enough.
Nobody to second-guess, criticize or condemn you.
Nobody to lie to you.
No one to answer to.

Just you! I mean me! Nobody else!

Not that I don’t miss loving, supportive collaboration. Parenting together. Knowing that there’s someone out there in the world who really cares about you. Who you can call if you get into a car accident, or get locked out.

And that’s just what girlfriends are for. No strings attached.

So when I think about VD, Valentine’s Day, or Vindictive Dating – I just say no. 
Only love, please. "I love me!" has a nice ring to it.
