Do you and your sweetie have plans? I'm still waiting ...
October 19th is not my birthday. And I'm single.
Oh, fooey. Sweetest Day is the most made-up holiday ever.
I'm just trying to decide what to do for my & dh's 19th anniversary next Tuesday. 19 is so random (and a prime number!!).
We don't celebrate Sweetest Day. We don't even celebrate Valentine's Day, and that is slightly less fake.
Sweetest Day? Puhlease.
I don't know any orphans myself.
I've never even heard of it.
This is the first time I've heard of this
Apparently I'm not the only sourpuss.
I could get behind a Saltiest Day.
I'm an orphan.
And yes, I usually get candy on Sweetest Day, too.
Just another day to try and make single people feel weird and outcasted from society.
Count me in as one who's never heard of this day.
Outcasted support group. Saturday, October 19. My place. Bring your favourite dessert.
I think dentists would love to have more 'sweetest days'. Bad for teeth good for business.
Nope, first time I heard about such a Day.
In all fairness, there should be a Sour-est Day and Spicy-est Day too.
And bitterest day and umamiest day?
Actually, Chocolate Day and Potato Chip Day would work for me.
And for dessert?
Why a support group? Why not a celebration day?
International Singles Day. Loner Pride Day.
Come on, help me come up with a better title.
Happy to be single day
(not that I am single but if something happened to Mr halffull I can't imagine I'd look for another).
I'm afraid I've never heard of Sweetest Day, either. I looked it up on Wikipedia:
"I am single so you won't find me posting snide sarcastic comments on facebook about the other person in my life" day.
A title inspired by my sister.
But you will post snide sarcastic comments about people who post snide sarcastic comments about the other people in their lives?
I only post where those people who my snide sarcastic comments are about would never read them.
What kinds of snide sarcastic comments from people in relationships have you read? I guess I have a hard time believing people would post things that were intended to be hurtful toward single people (especially on Facebook if they had single friends), so I'm curious. I can see how it would get annoying to read dozens of lovey-dovey statuses from people in relationships if you're not in one (and especially if you want to be), but I've never encountered anyone posting anything that I thought was anything other than celebrating and being grateful for what they have, so my happiness for friends being happy outweighs the slight annoyance at not having ever experienced that kind of relationship.
My sister writes less than flattering stuff all the time about her husband. And her kids as well. One moment saying how much they annoy her and the next moment that she loves them very much. She thinks she is being funny. But it really isn't very nice.
Every day is a chocolate day.
Oh OK, I guess I misunderstood what you meant. But people don't need to be in a romantic relationship to make those kinds of comments about other people.
