I’ve had a mixed relationship to Valentine’s Day through the years. When I was younger I remember the cards and classroom parties, and also the anxiety of whether the boy I liked would give me a card or show some sort of interest towards me on this special day of love.
As I grew up and became an adult I realized that for many years Valentine’s Day carried with it feelings of sadness, disappointment, anger and frustration. Being mostly single in my adult life I haven’t had many boyfriends on Valentine’s Day, and the few times I had a boyfriend during the month of love they weren’t into the Hallmark holiday aspect of Valentine’s day.
Through the last few years my relationship has shifted towards Valentine’s Day. Instead of focusing on what I don’t have, my journey into self love has me enjoying the fun around this day of love instead of feeling bad about it.
A few weeks ago I was inspired to bring together a group of folks for the first Ignite Intimacy roundtable to explore each of our relationships to V-Day and how to navigate this sometimes tender or agonizing day of love.
With a reminder to love ourselves first and to keep it real wherever we’re at with V-Day, Join me with Megan ‘Z’ Zimring, Oren Harris and Dr. Cat Meyer as we explore, discuss and unpack the many faces, experiences, attitudes towards, recreation of and keeping it real about Valentine’s Day on Episode 103 of Ignite Intimacy!
