It’s easy to get into a funk around Valentine’s Day when you’re single. Everyone else is getting presents, love, awesome dinners. And if you’re lucky, your mom sent you a care package with a gift card and candy (which is still pretty clutch) but you’re still really single.
Really, it’s just a day that’s going to suck. But, if you follow these don’ts you’ll have the best single gal/guy Valentine’s Day there could possibly be!
DON’T make people in a relationship feel bad just because you’re single. Eventually, you’ll find someone who will make you as happy as they are and you don’t want anyone to bring you down just for being love on February 14th.
DON’T get black-out wasted and cry. By all means, if you want to get super drunk then do it. But, do it with people who love you and are there to build you up rather than break you down. Dance, buy drinks, smile, and be happy on Valentine’s Day!
DON’T binge eat. Once again, treat yo self! If you want to order a pizza or go to a fancy meal – then do it! Avoid ordering everything on the Domino’s menu, eating it all, then regretting how full/fat you feel and ultimately how much money you just spent on food you really didn’t want or need.
DON’T forget to love yourself! Just because you don’t have a significant other, doesn’t mean you can’t love yourself. Do something that makes you realize how good you feel about yourself. Go shopping, go to the gym, get your nails or hair done, kick back and watch your favorite movie. Loving yourself in general is the most important aspect to having someone love you.
DON’T get upset that you don’t get presents. Instead, give presents! Buy some goodies or flowers for your closest friends. They’ll appreciate it, single or not! It will make you feel good to make other people happy and ultimately, it will make you happy.
DO enjoy your Valentine’s Day – alone or with someone – it’s just a day to realize how loved you really are! 🙂
