Valentine's Day. I'm glad it's over, just like I am every year. The hardest part is that, with each passing year, the pressure gradually goes up. It's an unspoken pressure. People almost don't realise they do it, but they do it none the less. It's the pressure to be seeing someone romantically. To have a significant other person in your life. I don't. I don't have any plans to change my relationship status. I'm 24 now and I've never had a boyfriend, I've never been in a relationship. I've gotten used to the questions and the comments. So many people I've met, even worked with, don't seem to understand that I'm not interested in something because everyone else has it or because it's 'expected' of me. It bothers me, actually. I've gotten to the point where I enjoy and actually love being single. I enjoy being on my own and the freedom singleness brings. If I never get married, I won't mind (I'm still on that journey of learning to live with myself). I guess I've never done well following the expectations of those around me. Oh well.
