Valentine's Day Sucks (As Usual)

Valentine's Day Sucks (As Usual)
Jessica Rabbit

Today is D-Day. Whether you’re single, in a relationship or in the purgatory that is somewhere in between, Valentine’s Day can be hell.

If you’re single, seeing all the fucking teddy bears, flowers, chocolates, couples dressed up for their dinner reservations feels like a serious slap in the face.

If you’re in a relationship, all that can feel like a slap in the face too…because maybe your boo didn’t do any of that for you.

If you’re somewhere in between, there’s no rules on how things are supposed to go. And the pressure is intense.

Even though it’s just a (semi-fake) holiday! So why does it matter so much!?

So maybe one guy doesn’t do much for Valentine’s Day. Well another remembered Sweetest Day, which I could actually care less about, right before he asked me if I’d be OK polyamory. Um, no thank you. So really, a guy remembering holidays doesn’t mean that much.

Or so I’m trying to convince myself. But then I log onto gmail and Facebook and Instagram, and I feel like red and pink hearts are being shoved down my throat and getting lodged there.

Fuck that bullshit. I vow from now on to keep my expectations as low as fuck.

Also, ladies, you can wear purple, pink and red with your red hair. Don’t listen to any of the “rules”. Light shades of pink and mauve look great, and red on red can look spectacular.

  • You are preaching to the choir, my ginger friend! FVD!

  • In reply to Michelle Babicz:


  • From your headline and your general diction, we now know how Jessica got Roger off.

    ha, whut?

  • In reply to thegingerphiles:

    Let me leave this as that I don't know how big of a winkie a Disney rabbit has, and whether that has anything to do with multiplying or doing advanced calculus like a rabbit.

  • My mother used to say that redheads should not wear red. Now I love to wear red! I'll do what I want!


  • In reply to Diana Schneidman:

    Same here! I think red on red on red (a red dress and red lipstick on a redhead) looks especially stunning!)

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
