I wonder how many other women out there are ordering food to cheer themselves up because they're alone on Valentine's Day. In a story by Jayne Phillips, the main character's mom says, "If you dine alone, dine by candlelight." In other words, be good to yourself and don't wait around for some man to be good to you. Amen. I'd rather be alone than with a jerk. But--that said--I'm jealous of couples like the O's, like Helena and Ruben, where you can see that they're so in love after so many years and still enjoy each other's company so much.
