Thoughts on Valentine’s Day

You know friends, as Valentine’s Day approaches it is all too easy to feel cynical about the very notion of love and romance in our modern, celebrity obsessed culture. With people getting married just to generate press coverage, not to mention the continued existence of Kim Kardashian, romance can seem to have no place in our busy lives. For a single person at this time of year, all the talk of love and the search for happiness can seem disheartening and overwhelming. But sometimes I’ll be walking down the street and I’ll see a young couple caught in the first exhilarating throes of their love affair. Arms wrapped around each other, that sparkle in their eyes, whispering sweet nothings as they giggle with delight. And I’ll quietly think to myself, “I hope you both get syphilis.”
