Where my single people at? Being single on Valentine’s Day, a blessing or a curse?

Hello my beautiful, lovely people. It’s that time of the year again, where cupid is at work. But what if you’re single? Whoever said that only people in relationships deserve to have fun on Valentine’s Day was lying. Singles can have their own fun too. You know, being single myself, I find that, there is nothing more satisfying than a human being who is able to be comfortable and happy in their own skin.

The first thing you can do on Valentine’s Day is to send yourself some chocolates. Yes! I said it dammit! Send some expensive “Ferrero Rocher” chocolates to yourself. Even if it’s a bunch of flowers! I don’t care who says what, you’re worth it. Valentine’s Day is a day of love for everybody, now why should that not include you?

Which brings me to our next fun activity: take yourself out, baby! To my ladies: you don’t need a man to take you out to a romantic candle lit dinner for you to feel special. And to my fellas: you don’t need a lady to enjoy yourself. They say, there’s something sexy about a person who can enjoy their own company. Therefore, if you are currently not in a relationship, you might want to enjoy this last little bit of time that you have left. It might just be your last, before you end up meeting your perfect match and then you’re hitched and out of the market for good.

Make the most of your day. I don’t care what you do, whether you write yourself a love letter or a poem, go to the park and read a book or go down to the lake and go canoeing. It’s all up to you. As long as you wake up and make your day count, have fun and do something exciting as long as it brings you enjoyment and fulfilment. So what if you’re single? It’s probably for a good reason because a lot of people are in relationships they are not happy in, so it might be a blessing in disguise. Embrace it!

Call a few of your friends over and have a singles party. Having a little singles get together, as a group of single friends, can do one wonders. Nothing cures loneliness like having friends around. We all know there’s nothing quite like having a good time with friends over some wine and good food. You and your friends might even decide that you want to go out and paint the town. Hell! Do whatever feel’s right to you. After all, this is your life that we are talking about. Whatever you do, make sure you laugh it up, treat yourself, you could catch up with someone you miss. Just do something, because at the end of the day, you are the CEO of your life.

It can be a bummer to be single on Valentine’s Day, but only if you allow it to be. You deserve to be happy, with or without a partner, so do everything in your power to make this day a positive occasion.
