Dear Doolina, 

I’m dreading Valentine’s Day because I don’t have a valentine! Should I do a last minute scramble to find a special someone or celebrate my singleness?

Sincerely,

Dear Missed by Cupid’s Arrow,

There’s nothing worse than forced love. Actually, there are a lot of things that are worse than that (see the current situation in Syria or the food in the DUC). But still, the point stands: don’t force love.

Especially when you only have 24 hours until V-Day and you could be using those hours to watch Friends on Netflix instead. I recommend you throw yourself a Galentine’s Day or Paletine’s Day celebration.

Gather some single friends, and, instead of wallowing in pity over your collective singledom (an oxymoron if there ever was one), celebrate the other valuable relationships in your life: your friendships.

Delightfully,

Doolina

Dear Doolina,

 

Do you have a valentine?

Sincerely,

Dear Enquiring Minds,

While I don’t have a valentine per se, I do have my eye on a certain skeleton with a fine tail bone who roams the paths of Emory and from time to time lets students out of class. Let’s just say I’d let him put a ring on my phalanges if he asked. Hopefully he’ll see through my cold exterior and love who I am on the inside– which shouldn’t be too hard, as I am a skeleton after all. 

Delightfully,

Doolina
