For The Lovely Singles On Valentine's Day
Yeah, it does hurt when you’re single on Valentine’s Day. It seems like everybody is loved up, getting flowers and chocolates, and if you’re anything like me, you’re wishing the day was over (mostly so you can get half priced chocolate the next day). So if you’re spending the February 14th solo, here’s a few things to get you through the day and hopefully show you being single on Valentine’s isn’t necessarily the worst thing.
1. First, remember it’s just a commercial holiday, and you’re no less loved on Valentine’s than you are any other day.
Just because you don’t have someone; a significant other to buy you candy and flowers does not mean you aren’t loved. Remember all the people you have surrounding you in your life and be thankful for all the blessings you have.
2. Treat Yo’Self
If you’re upset that no one’s treating you, treat yourself. Always remember no one will love you more than you love yourself. So don’t mope around all day and show some love to the person who will always be around.
3. Instead of worrying about Valentine’s, try celebrating Galentine’s.
Got a big group of girlfriends that aren’t coupled up? Try gathering them up and do a secret-Santa type gift giving. Show your girls you appreciate them all the time and are glad they’re there for you, whether single or taken.
4. Only a few single friends? Pair up and take advantage of all that is Valentine’s, deals.
Grab your friends that are single, and take each other out. Valentine’s day is about love and doesn’t necessarily have to be about couples. Take yourself and your friends out and take advantage of all the deals while you can.
5. Take a class.
Whether you’re single by choice or haven’t found the right person, you can always work on yourself. Take a spin class, a painting class and spend some time bettering yourself. You may even find a passion you never knew you had.
6. Remember that just because you’re single this Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you’ll be single forever.
Valentine’s Day isn’t the be-all-end-all for relationships. Next Valentine’s day, next month or even next week you might meet your new boo. There’s no reason to be upset one day out of the year when there’s so many more opportunities coming your way.
