Ever since the book came out, I've received feedback about how it's made women think about friendships throughout their lives, as well as who is in their lives now. The goal of this blog is to open up and create a dialogue about friendships: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Each week I will post my thoughts, experiences, as well as various articles, topics or quotes that I feel are important when examining female friendships. Please feel free to leave comments; I look forward to hearing from you!

All the Single Ladies...

Valentine's Day came and went.  For those of you who are single, it can be somewhat of a challenging holiday to see all of your friends and family celebrate with their loved ones.  In past years, I have spent the holiday with friends, which tends to make it more about celebrating the friendship rather than feeling bad about ourselves.

One Valentine's Day, I took myself to see Avatar; I'm very glad I did since the movie was spectacular.  It was the first time I had gone to the movies by myself; I didn't make it a big deal, so it didn't feel like a big deal. 

I know people who celebrate the holiday by having a singles party or by having an anti-Valentine's Day party.  I'll be honest and say I'd like to attend one of those!  I'm curious about what goes on at these parties...

If you're single, how did you spend your Valentine's Day?  Does the holiday bring you closer to your single friends or is it just another day?  On the flip side, if you're in a relationship, have you ever spent the holiday with friends?
