WASHINGTON, DC (PRWEB) February 13, 2004
It happens every year. It starts with a little reminder here, and a simple greeting card there. Eventually it transpires into this massive overindulgence of pink and red; covering every store one goes in, and serving as a constant reminder of oneÂs marital status. February 14th comes only once a year, but for the 100.7 Million single Americans, it doesnÂt bring feelings of warmth and love, but loneliness, despair, and isolation.
For the better part of the year, a single person can live out their lives, in search of someone special or being happy being single; however, come February 14th, they are inundated with a barrage of advertisements, store decorations, and overall tastelessly gaudy reminders that they are in a small minority of the population. This brings up feelings of loneliness, which can turn into feelings of depression and thoughts of suicide.
It is no wonder that February 14th marks the day that one can find more marriage proposals, more birth conceptions, and more attempts at suicide then any other day of the year combined. It is for this reason that the founder and author of Imdateless.Com is campaigning to remove this ridiculous holiday from the publicÂs general presence.
ÂIt wouldnÂt be so bad if only a small section of the store were made out in such a manner; where one could do their ValentineÂs Day shopping. The problem is that around this time of year, no matter where you turn, all you see is ValentineÂs Day paraphernalia. Being single, this only reminds me, more and more, of my single status. ItÂs not bad enough that IÂm single, I have to be reminded about it everywhere I goÂ says the founder.
ÂI completely understand peopleÂs desire to give that special someone something unique for this occasion Â seeing as it has been a tradition in America for some time now. The problem is, that not everyone shares in this feeling of hormone driven happiness; in fact this day only brings about anxiety and stress to a good percentage of the population. These are not only discriminatory business practices, they are tantamount to harassment, creating a nationwide Âhostile environmentÂ against single people sensitive to their single status.Â
In difference to the feelings of single people everywhere, Imdateless.Com is planning to launch a class action lawsuit against retailers who promote the ValentineÂs Day holiday in grievous manners that prevent single people from shopping there without being reminded about their single status.
Currently, Imdateless.Com is in search of legal counsel on the matter and is taking offers on legal representation.

Imdateless.Com was founded with one purpose in mind, and that was to find its founder a date. Its companion website serves as the central hub of information where you can find updated stories and events as the author scours the countryside for dates and maybe even love.
