Happy V-Day to you all! Granted, I'm presently single and it just feels like another day to me, but I love everyone in my life and wish you all a fantastic day! I hope everyone, single or taken, has a lovely Valentine's Day. Greeting card holiday or not, the concept of celebrating love is positive, so tell someone you love them.
I did wear a red shirt today to be in the Valentine spirit. And pigtails. That has nothing to do with Valentine's Day, but they look cute. After work, I'm going to get a tempo run in before heading to the dentist for a cleaning. I think Danielle and I are going to grab dinner together, and then I'm heading home to catch LOST. It should be a quiet day for me, but then again one never knows when something might surprise her. Lightning 100.1 is playing songs about love and relationships all day, so I've got that playing on my computer. It's setting a nice tone for my day. :)
I did this survey on Valentine's Day last year, so I thought I'd post it again and update my answers where necessary. Here goes…
 Is there anyone you like at the moment?
I like a lot of people… but as for if I like someone in particular, my lips are sealed "at the moment…" ha
 Have you ever given or been given roses?
I've gotten some roses a few times… I don't think I've given any
 What is your all-time favorite romance movie?
One Fine Day with Michelle Pfeifer and George Clooney; I also really like Hitch with Will Smith – it's so funny!
 How many times have you honestly been in love?
Honestly – one solid time; I may have thought I was in love another time, but I was young and didn't really know
 Do you believe that everyone has a soul-mate?
I think that we're capable of developing relationships, romantic or not, where we feel deeply connected and know that person almost as well as ourselves… and I think we can do that with more than one person.. that's the kind of relationship I want with a man AND with my closest friends
 Do you think that you should put your friends first?
I think there should be a healthy balance, though I definitely think there are appropriate times when your significant other should come first (b/c this person often becomes your best friend)… again, balance…
 Have you ever had your heart broken?
Um, yeah… more than once… but I'm resilient, so I'm not afraid to accept the risks that come with love to find the man who's NOT going to break my heart
 What do you think about long-distance relationships?
I've done it before – it's doable… you just have to do things in a different way than you would if you could see each other all the time
 Your thoughts on online relationships?
I think the Internet is a good way to maintain relationships to a certain extent… but I kind of like meeting people in person to figure out if there's something there or not
 Would you rather date someone five years older or five years younger?
5 years older. No contest. There's a bigger difference between a 25-year-old girl and 20-year-old guy than there is between 25-y-o girl and 30-y-o man. (And I know I'm not 25 yet, but I'm close enough so shush your mouth)
 Have you ever seen a friend as more than a friend?
I think so. If my memory is clear, it seems like it always fizzed out before I ever did anything about it, and that was probably for the best
 Do you believe the statement, "Once a cheater always a cheater"?
I think we all make mistakes and can change after them, but I also think that we have a right to not trust a person once they've lost our trust... especially in that way b/c that's a pretty big deal
 How many kids do you want to have?
2? I don't know… I'm not thinking too much about having kids right now…
 Do you usually fall for the right boy/girl?
Yes… well, ones that I think are "right for me" anyways
 What is your favorite color?
Green – what does this have to do with Valentine's Day?
 What are your views on gay marriages?
This doesn't really have much to do with the rest of the survey either – I'll say this: I'm planning to marry a man, because I like men
 Imagine you're 79 & your spouse just died, would you re-marry?
Who knows what I'd do at age 79? But knowing how I am now, I think that if I just spent like 50-55 years with my husband, I'd probably not be able to be with any other man.
 At what age did you start noticing the opposite sex?
I used to race boys on the playground in elementary school… they didn't like it that I could run faster than them. I didn't start actually liking boys til I got to high school.
 What song do you want to hear at your wedding?
Goodness, I don't know – something that is fitting for me and the man I'm marrying… I'll plan the wedding once I find the man (or he finds me), ha
 Do you think that someone likes you?
It's always fun when someone likes you… I think a lot of people like me… and I hope that if anyone really likes me a lot, that they'll tell me
 who is your #1 person on your myspace friends list?
My sister Meredith
single or taken?
 Describe the perfect Valentine's day.
I like surprises – and it doesn't have to be anything fancy… I'm a simple girl who just likes for things to be thoughtful
