Reflections of a dumpee on Valentine's Day

Love. Romance. Passion. All of these things can be found at my house tonight. But only because they'll be on tonight's episode of "The Bachelorette".

As for me, this is how I will be spending Valentine's Day:
5pm - allergy shots
6:30pm - haircut and highlight
9pm - The Bachelorette
10pm - Medium
11:30pm - go to bed by myself

Jealous???

You might think I'm bitter. Well, you're goddamn right I'm bitter. Today I hate everyone who has a significant other. That includes my parents and my sister. You all suck.

It wouldn't be so bad if my Valentine's Days with B were bad, but they weren't. They were amazing. In 2003-four months into our relationship-he sent me a package full of stuff. Candy, a teddy bear, a CD, a chick flick, etc. Plus he sent me flowers at work and then came to visit me. Last year we went to Ocean City, MD to stay at his aunt's condo on the beach. I woke up on Valentine's Day morning to a flower arrangement he made himself, McDonald's breakfast and homemade chocolate covered strawberries. He used dark chocolate because it's my favorite, and then in white chocolate he wrote out "I LOVE YOU" on them. Dammit that's fucking awesome.

Oh well-it's really not a big deal. My hairdresser said that she and I could eat chocolate together tonight so that will be fun. Plus I have a lot of people who love me. I am a very lucky person. Valentine's Day really doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things.

If anyone needs me I'll be getting drunk in the ladies room.

Hey look me up when you're drinking. That's my favorite place to hang out.

Ah-nice, John. Your role as "creepy old man who stands outside the ladies room playing with the change in his pocket" is secured.

Hey, I HAVE a boyfriend and I am still going to be watching Bachelorette by myself, and I too and getting my hair highlighted and trimmed. So there, you are not so alone. That's crazy y'all went to OCMD last time, I live real close to the beach. That's an Eastern Shore hotspot!

Sarah said...

Yeah since B was from Baltimore and lived with his parents, every time I came to visit we went to Ocean City so we could have some alone time. That place is awesome!

Tigerlily said...

Yeah, I lived in Baltimore too for 3 years. You got to watch people from there, sheisty.

I don't have any uplifting messages for ya, you know how hot and cool you are. That not-ready-for-prime-time B don't know what he's missing.

I did learn a new word - sheisty. Sweet!

I'm coming over to watch Bachlorette! Tonight something "different" happens, so I have to watch. See you after class....

Sarah said...

You guys, I stand corrected. Tonight I will be spending Valentine's Day with my baby sister which is much less depressing than spending it alone. I'm just saying nothing about that is pathetic.

Scott said...

HANG ON! Toren - I am going to need a quick description of this guy. Is he like 6'0" and big like a cuddly teddy bear? Because if you picked up "B" in Baltimore, shotgun or no, you're going down.

I don't know you other than reading your blog (which I love), but I am quite certain that your ex is a jerk.
