Eh, I still walk to the mailbox that day with some vague forlorn hope, even knowing it is a hope that will be dashed. I suspect most uncoupled (and perhaps, more than a few coupled) people feel exactly the same way.
Not that it makes it any easier to take, knowing that I have compatriots out there.
If that stupid “Forever Alone” meme didn’t exist? It would make it easier to take, I think.
