And still, I find myself with little or no social life.
For loners (by choice or fate) like me, February is probably the next most lamentable month – second only to December. In fact, the popularized acronym S.M.P. (which stands for Samahang Malalamig ang Pasko) found a new form as Samahang Malalamig ang Pebrero.
I do wonder if I really suck at romance after all.
Yet, is love all about romance? Is it all about cheesiness, of dating, of having someone to hold your hand, or dedicate a love song to? Is it all about having someone to devote your poems, text messages, Facebook status quotes, and everything else trivially passionate?
And true, I do wish to someday have a family of my own. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have love. Nor have I not learnt it yet.
Love isn’t just a season. Or an occasional whim.
And being single is not an excuse to think that February’s gonna be cold – because the fact is, you can choose to give love instead. So stop looking for love! God already gave it to us – and maybe He’s just nudging you to go out and share it with everyone else (and who knows, a little love from you can warm up someone’s heart to you!).
Have a warm February, everyone – especially to my single friends! Don’t be cold: what are group hugs for, anyway??? XD

And yeah, I might as well plug for our Single Adults Ministry’s pre-valentine activity… In case you don’t have a place to share that love inside you, why don’t you join our single adults on February 4, 2011? Check out the image below for details, or visit our Facebook account!
(And yeah, anyone wanna buy Valentine cards from me???) XD
