It’s Okay To Be Single On Valentine’s Day

As we all know, February 14th is Valentine’s Day. Everything is painted pink and red, there’s at least one aisle in every store that is purely pink and red. There are giant stuffed animals everywhere.

Couples are out everywhere and they’re looking at each other with those puppy dog eyes – we all know the look. The look is just amazingly, sickeningly adorable.

Then there are some of us that don’t have anyone to share that look with. We don’t have anyone to buy the candy for or to buy it for us. We don’t have anyone that we’re going to go on a super romantic date with or anyone that’s going to give us the mushy cards or share the entire mushy day with in general.

Two ways to look at this: I’m so sad about all of this… or we could just rock this.

If you’re single on Valentine’s Day, there’s no need to go into a hiding type deal. You don’t need to match up with someone just so you have a Valentine. Do you know what’s even better? Be your own Valentine. The person that you should love first and foremost is yourself! When Valentine’s Day comes around just take care of yourself.

You can use this day to totally pamper yourself. Show yourself the love that you deserve – how often do you actually pause and do that? Take a long bath, light some candles or incense, buy yourself that candy and treat yourself to it with no regrets. No one else needs to do what you can do yourself.

Again, I repeat, don’t just pick someone to match up with so that you can “fit in” on Valentine’s Day. This could end disastrously, and it’s bound to end in heartbreak or at least some form of pain later down the road. We see all the hype about Valentine’s Day, and I know that it can be so difficult to see it when you don’t have anyone to share it with. Truthfully, there is NO reason that you can’t be hyped up to spend Valentine’s Day with yourself.

You don’t need someone else to tell you that you’re incredible, we all already know that you are. You don’t need someone else to tell you that you’re the best thing, because you already know that you are. Take Valentine’s Day and make it YOUR day.

Just remember, you can get in on the hype, and you can show yourself all the love that you would give to someone else. When the right person comes along, later on, you can celebrate Valentine’s Day with them – until then, it’s okay to be single on Valentine’s Day.
