Whoever said Valentine’s Day is exclusively for couples was wrong. If you are single, Valentine’s Day should be fun, if not super exciting. This is not the time to call up your exes trying to secure a date. It’s not the time to get drunk until you pass out and then nurse hangovers the next morning.
You might not exchange flowers, cards or sweet nothings with anyone. Remember though, love is not for couples only. Your relationship status does not define you. It might be a hard day but guess what, you will survive.
When the chilly blues of being a single girl on Valentine’s Day set in, here is what I suggest you do.
Get together with people you love.
This includes family, friends and colleagues who are single like you. Never follow a couple on Valentine’s Day (no matter how much they insist).
Buy yourself chocolates or go for a manicure and pedicure. You can even choose to do your own manicure and pedicure at home or a facial treatment. Look good and you will feel great.
Make someone else’s face light up.
Spread the love to someone who is not so close to you. It could be a co-worker, friend, neighbor or a total stranger.
Throw a party and invite your single friends.
It doesn’t have to be big. You can just have a sleepover or a girl’s night out.
Enjoy your own company.
Stay at home and cook a good meal for yourself and enjoy your space. If you can find happiness on your own, you can find happiness in any situation.
If you have a hobby, devote time to it on Valentine’s Day.
Whether it’s drawing, writing or any other thing you can do indoors or outdoors, you will feel a sense of accomplishment if you do it on this day.
If you have the time and money then get out of town.
Visit that friend you haven’t seen for a long time and just go and explore a new town or city.
Valentine’s is a day like any other.
If you don’t feel like doing the above mentioned then just do all the things you would do on a normal day. Valentine’s Day is a commercial holiday and one of the main reasons why it is so overrated is because businesses make crazy profits during this time. At least you will be saving your money.
