As if you wanted another reminder, Valentine’s Day is upon us. If you’re single on Valentine’s Day, the red and pink hearts everywhere have been an irritating reminder of what will happen on February 14th.
***Cue the red heart balloons, boxes of chocolates, and giant teddy bears that popped up overnight***
If you’re not in a relationship, you’ve got three choices. A) You can pretend like it’s just any regular day. B) You can watch romantic chick flicks and eat ice cream while you wallow in self-pity (I promise, you don’t want to do this). Or C) You can make the most of being single on Valentine’s Day by doing something that will make you happy – my personal favorite. I promise, there’s no shortage of ways to spend Valentine’s Day if you’re single.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret – you might be better off than your friends in relationships. Think about it. You don’t have the stress and pressure of planning a date, getting your loved one the perfect gift, or spending too much money on trivial things like flowers, chocolates, and other gifts of love. There is absolutely no pressure to make February 14th a special day for anyone but yourself, so what’s not to love? Forget about past Valentine’s Days gone wrong and forget about those movie-perfect Valentines expectations and focus on loving yourself.
Are you still a little short on ideas for how to spend the day when you’re single on Valentine’s Day? We’ve got a list of 14 things you can do to treat yourself to the best February 14th yet. Channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and the City) and think, “Single and Fabulous!” (exclamation point), not “Single and Fabulous?”
Spend the day loving yourself and remember that there is more to life than expensive dates and giant teddy bears. Are you going to be single on Valentine’s Day? How are you spending it? What was the best way you’ve ever spent February 14th?
