Valentines Day


I logged on to my laptop, feeling if I am honest, a little bit down.  Here I was sat on my own on Valentines Day night. When I should have been out enjoying myself or at the very least sat here with a lovely man.  It had been a bit hard today at work watching my colleges receive lovely red roses and hearing them talking about what they were doing that evening.

I started reading through my messages and they instantly began to cheer up. Obviously there were more people than me sat alone tonight who were logged on to the Mature Free and Single website chatting, emailing and basically just reading other members diary entries.  I started reading through the diary entries myself and found myself was smiling in no time,  its funny how some men always write jokes and then other people always write serious entries about factual subjects. I love it because whatever mood I am in there is something that will entertain me.

I decided to write a diary entry and wrote the following.

Its Valentines Day night and I am sat here alone but the strange thing is that I don’t feel alone because you lot are on here too. Happy Valentines Day everyone, lets hope this time next year some of us are with someone special.

I pressed the send button and my message flew off in to cyber space waiting for approval in no time at all it was approved and was visible for other members to see.

Then messages started coming through to me from people all over the country. A guy from Scotland said Hi there, don’t be upset because your sat on your own on Valentines night, it’s a right money making thing  Valentines day, this made me giggle, he went on to say. The restaurants are charging a fortune,  just because they are putting a candle and a few red hearts on the tables.

But Donald I replied how romantic it would be sat staring into a beautiful woman’s eyes across a table lit by candlelight.

Rubbish he came back with, Valentines Day should be everyday of the year for a couple not one night so the restaurants can profit out of it.  Hmm, I thought maybe he had a point.

Another message came through from Richard 57 of Hull and It said you have a gift, A gift I thought, what’s a gift, what on earth is this. I opened the message and there was a virtual gift of a beautiful bunch of flowers with the message, Happy Valentines Day, they may not be the real thing but they are sent with affection just for you. Richard x

Well I was amazed; I instantly filled up with tears, what a lovely gesture, that he bothered to use the bolt on facility and purchase some flowers for me. I was completely blown away. It could not have been worth more had they been delivered to me personally. I clicked on his profile and saw that we had emailed each other before regarding diary entries.

I smiled to myself, hmm maybe there is much more to Richard than I had initially thought, time to find out more………
