"Always a bridesmaid and never a bride, hey?" I was on the receiving end of that a couple times.

(Case and point: the strange man I interacted with on Craigslist who seemed more interested in "getting to know me" than purchasing my old couch.) No sale is worth compromising your personal safety.

After a lot of self-work and love, I dropped the crap and chose to love myself, every wrinkle, every imperfection inside and out. This form of self-love is what we could be spreading, as opposed to fear of aging and the fear of ending up alone. We were born alone, and we will die alone, whether or not you have a husband and kids, this is true for all of us.

We firmly believe it's possible to find love again after experiencing a major heartbreak, but be forewarned: "possible" doesn't mean "easy." The first obstacle to surmount is fear. This is the most critical roadblock to moving forward and finding love again. Fear is often so dominant that it can crush any new budding relationship before it takes bloom.

When I hit 30, I noticed my social media fill with announcements of engagements, weddings, new homes, new pregnancies, thriving careers and growing families.

Last weekend, I ran the Nike Toronto Women's 15k on the Island and had the good fortune of having two girlfriends come out to support me. They jumped in a cab at 6:15 a.m., waited in line for a ferry, getting to the island three hours before my race time and watched me in the pouring rain.

If you're in a relationship and would like some tips on how to make your Valentine's day special, here you go.
