Because of my stupid dependence on Hollywood love stories, Valentine’s Day serves to remind me that I am, indeed, alone. Again. But guess what?

Where on earth did this garish tradition begin? Valentine’s Day: a superficial and commercial enterprise that should be written off as a ridiculous affair, or so they cry down the Old Cynic Road.

My boyfriend was relieved earlier this week when I informed him that my next couple of columns were going to be about dudes who aren’t him (he likes his private life private and even though I’ve previously written about my violation of such requests, it’s also not in my interests to annoy someone I have…
