Valentine's Day: Or how to ruin your life. Focus all your attention on what you don't have. Make believe that you cannot, will not, be happy until you find someone special. Listen to all the advertisements that validate that belief, so you know you are right. Spend each peak moment with the nagging sentiment, "If only I could share this with special person." (Way to put a dent in it!) Observe all the couples you know and believe each one is happy. Happier than you. Don't go anywhere, not to dinner, or a movie or vacation because you are single.
