Jackson, Mississippi – Last Valentine’s Day, we brought you the story of Steve Bearmiller, a local sad sack who claimed he had had enough of Valentine’s Day catering only to couples and had decided to hold his own Valentines party for only himself (though life kind of made that decision for him.) Now 43, Bearmiller, who can be seen in this photo looking longingly at the last valentines gift he receieved – in 1987. We entered the basement in which Bearmiller lives just as he was looking at this present and sobbing uncontrollably, though he claimed he just had something in his eye….for the next minutes. We asked Steve how had he been doing since last Valentine’s day, though as we noticed he was wearing the same stained gray wife beater and sweatpants he was wearing at this time last year, we just assumed we knew the answer already. He claimed he had been doing great in the last year, telling us he had gotten a few new games for each of his Playstation 3, Xbox, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo 64, and Super Nintendo, some new CDs, and that later today he would be pleading with his sister to buy him the newly released “Perks of Being a Wallflower” DVD when she goes out, because he does not….ever. In fact, Bearmiller told us he has not left the house since last Valentine’s day. “So it’s safe to assume you haven’t been on any dates?” we then asked him. He replied, “Well, I was talking to a couple of girls online, but they couldn’t handle my spirit.” Turns out that “spirit” he spoke of led him to being permanently banned from the dating websites eHarmony, Zoosk, and Match.com, as well as receiving a 6 month ban from Facebook. It is believed that he is the first person to receieve a ban from so many websites at once. Bearmiller, however, says he is ok with it because he plans to start his own dating website called IlltakewhatIcanget.com. “But first, the party!” he exclaimed as he pointed to the table in the corner of his virgin lair, a table containing numerous finger sandwiches, chips, dips, cupcakes, cookies, popcorn, and two cases of soda. We were excited for him at first, as it was clear that with the amount of food he had, that he must be expecting a large gathering of friends or perhaps family, prompting us to ask how many people were coming. Our excitement turned to sadness as he responded “Just me guys. It’s going to epic!” Our feelings then became an odd mixture of sadness and fear as we noticed that on the table, beside the multiple snacks, were a stack Valentine’s day cards featuring WWE wrestlers that he had written to himself with messages of “Best friend ever,” “Stay cool,” and “You’re gonna make it one day. Just you wait! 43 is the new 20″ (last year, he wrote “42 is the new 20″ on his own homemade valentines to himself.) We then hurried up the stairs away from his basement and left Steve Bearmiller to his big day, a day filled with eating nine pounds of food, watching old episodes of Doctor Who and Firefly, and taking the more than occasional break to masterbate.
