Being single on holiday is not a disaster

Feb. 14 is a significant day for sweethearts, but how does it make those who are not in relationships feel?

You might think, "pretty horrible" - but that's not always true. There are many ways it can be a great day, and there are actually people who have tons of fun being single.

"I just want to go out and defy the world by being single and having fun on a day made for lovers," said Kaleigh Jablonski, a freshman at Greenbrier High School.

For most people who are single on Valentine's Day, it's just a regular day - except that other people are carrying around flowers, candy or teddy bears.

"I think it would be a lot cooler if I had a girlfriend, but it's still a lot of fun," said Kris Fausnight, a Greenbrier senior. "It gives me an excuse to buy candy and cards for my good friends."

On Thursday, plenty of unattached teens will go to the movies with friends, to someone's house, drop in on parties, go out to eat, or just drive around. This just shows how today's teen-agers can ignore society's stereotypes and enjoy a day such as Valentine's Day while being single and having fun.

Teen board member Shannon Kelley, 14, is a freshman at Greenbrier High School.
