Adult Valentines Ideas-solo parents

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for fancy dressed couples to display their affection in public as they court one another with chocolate covered strawberries. Yet, it can feel that way when you don’t have a significant other. Single parents often hide behind their kids so that they don’t need to face being romantically remote. Their children become their special Valentine as they bring them carefully crafted school made cards covered with pink symbols of love

My politics dictate that no human being should ever be robbed of his or her dignity by being objectified.  Reducing someone to an erotic symbol deprives the person of his or her inherent worth and nullifies any effort he or she makes to rise above the ordinariness of human life.  People should be recognized for their talents; when they excel in public endeavors, they shouldn’t win even greater accolades for their sexual appeal, nor be disgraced for their lack of it.  Sexual objectification of any person in any form should be deemed unacceptable.  Unless the person’s an athlete.  Then we should objectify them ‘til the cows come home.

But everything started to change when my relationship of ten years began to fall apart. I felt free to focus on what I really wanted for the first time in years, maybe ever. And I started to think more and more about what it would really be like. Could I, would I want to, make out with another man? Have sex? What kind of sex?
