With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought I might write something that was in some way relevant to the theme of love, especially romantic love. Personally, I barely even notice V. Day’s coming and going. But the fact is that for a lot of people, especially the youth, it does mean something and I respect that. If they’re in a relationship, it’s a day to celebrate their love. If they’re not, it can become an annoying reminder of their single status. This is why, on holidays, a lot of young single people want to hang out with other single friends. It’s a way to shield themselves from the feelings of lack or loneliness.
