I geuss i'm kinda sad because recently i asked someone to go on a date to the movies with me and that person had to be the one of the day that ripped my heart into shreds and then burned it because now i can't go anywhere near that person which is hard because i sit by her at shool. I asked my older brother what to do and he said just to wait and see what happens so thats what im doing. post a comment to tell me what to do i don't really care anymore i just want to die right now oh well. bye

Thanks for posting your honest thoughts. I hope you all are hanging in there today. I know it's hard when it seems like everyone else has someone to date but you don't. Just know that you're not alone. Not everyone is dating -- it just seems that way sometimes!

Also hang in there if the person you like doesn't like you back. It's rips your heart out now, but trust that God has better plans for you down the road.

I hope you get through the day and remember that you are loved by God, by family, by friends, by ENCOUNTER!

I know I'm kinda late, but I've never had a date on valentines day. I know that I don't have to have a guy to make me whole. God loves me and has a plan for me. Some day I will meet my prince, and I hope he's waiting to meet me too.
