Being single on valentine’s day may not be as bad as the world may make it out to be, I should know because I’ve been single for close to 7 years and am only 27.
The TV and radio adverts, the supermarket décor the billboards all on LOVE of course don’t make it super easy. Firstly, for those just getting out of relationships I won’t lie its somewhat hard, for those that have never actually experienced it and base their intel on movies or other peoples’ relationships well you’ll definitely feel a pinch, as for the indifferent ones it may seem like it doesn’t matter or its not much of a big deal but there are emotions involved so you’ll definitely have a harsh day.
Based on my experience I have three methods that may work for single you this valentine’s day;
1. Join the anti-valentine’s day clique who would prefer to detest the day in order to focus their minds and hearts away from the pain of not having a valentine!
2. Choose yourself. Get yourself all that you’d want, spend the day with a friend in a similar boat as you. Basically love YOU!
3. RISK IT ALL. Go on a blind date or an online date. You actually get to meet a new person for the first time with no expectations just a good time. And if it actually turns into a long term relationship you’ll have a good story to tell your kids.
Being single can be lonely but they’re are loopholes to self-happiness without the influence of another person. As for me this valentine’s day will be spent loving me because that took a long time to realize.
