Love Can Be Hard For A Transwoman To Find
We are not only surrounded by cisgender couples gay and straight expressing their love for each other, we're drowned in an avalanche of romantic movies, songs, radio and television commercials in the weeks leading up to it.
It's a day for romance that for many of us won't result in someone leaving us heart shaped boxes of chocolate, presents, gifts of jewelry, stuffed animals, getting flowers delivered to our addresses, a sentimental call from a person we describe as our sweethearts or a marriage proposal from the person we love.
As I wrote in a Valentine's Day post last year, unlike some transwomen, I've actually had the experience of being a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding.
