Hi. I realized something today. I am an evolved woman regarding space and independence and whatnot. However, I’m still a girl. I wish this upcoming “holiday” was not full of expectations and pressure–but how do we get around that without seeming like a cold-hearted jackass or a sentimental fool? How do I balance my extreme desire to receive flowers and silly notes of affection while trying to remain a normal human being? Damn you Hallmark!!!
