We wish that all of you meet your secret admirer or admirers and have a lovely day. However, if the case happened to cause you to spend the day alone, a candlelit dinner will cheer you up for sure. By the way, getting a greeting card or a love confession letter is not what is this day all about rather it is about spreading happiness and smiles everywhere around you. It’s also about forgiveness and letting go of the pent-up emotions. February 14th is not for lovers only, it is for everyone to feel happy.
