I think Valentine's Day is a bit overhyped, to be honest. If you are in a relationship then it's just an excuse to be slushy and a great reminder to the blokes out there to do something special - but it shouldn't take a day in a diary to remind them to treat you amazingly; it should be like this all year round.
If you're single, then it's just a reminder that you're a singleton!
Recently, somebody said to me, 'You're nearly 30 and still single, how sad!'. I've been single for a number of months now and I know how difficult it can be for girls and boys out there to meet someone special.
As much as I would love to be in a relationship, I'm really enjoying being single at the moment as I am so busy with work and all my different projects seem to be going amazingly well, so I can't complain!

When the right man comes along I'll happily make time for him (where are you??), but for now I'm just happy being with my friends and dating.
It takes a lot for me to fall in love and I have only ever really felt like that once. I had my heart broken, but it's fully healed again now and I'm ready to fall all over again!
With my new dating website 'Hope With Pope'
, I aim to bring some happiness and introduce similar people in my position together.
