Here’s a New Year’s resolution that I would very much like to stick to: no last-minute pity dates for Valentine’s Day. Yes, I am single. Yes, I may sometimes yearn for some affection. But no, I will not succumb to societal pressures of having a hand to hold or make googly eyes with while we make small talk in a cramped restaurant filled with other couples.
Another New Year’s resolution? Read more books. So in the interest of hitting two birds with one stone, I am going to spend my Valentine’s Day coursing through racks and racks of books. And okay, fine, I may or may not hope for a meet-cute where I’m going to meet the love of my life when we reach for the last copy of the same book. But that’s just about all the action I will get and hope for.
