It’s pretty hard to believe that Valentine’s Day is only about a month away. I really am not a fan of Valentine’s Day to be honest. If you love someone, there shouldn’t be just one day where you love them more than every other day. I love everyone I love every day, you know?
And there are plenty of things to celebrate on February 14th besides Valentine’s Day. Realistically, I know most people will celebrate this Hallmark Holiday, and that’s cool. I probably will too now that I’m boo-ed up, but I’d rather have a date on not Valentine’s Day. Anyway, if you are celebrating V-Day, whether you’re in a relationship or single, here are some things you should absolutely not do.
Don't Have High Expectations
This is the reason most people have crappy holidays. We put sooooo much hope into having these amazing holidays, and they never turn out the way we picture them to. Do yourself a favor and keep those expectations in check.
Don't Try To Be Spontaneous
LOL Valentine's Day is NOT the time for spontaneity. Do you know how crazy things get on this holiday? You need reservations for things. If you're looking to do something on the fly, do a picnic or something that doesn't involve crowded public places.
Don't Go On A First Date
I know this works for some people, and bless their hearts. Just. This is not the day for a first date. It's not.
Whether you've had good or bad ones in your ghosts of Valentine's Day past, do not compare them to this one. This is Valentine's Day 2014 and has nothing to do with your past Valentine's Days.
Don't Talk To Your Ex
If you're on a date with your boo, your friend, your mom, whoever, do not complain. Just don't. It's rude. It may not be the Valentine's Day you had in your head with if your expectations are running wild, but that doesn't give you the right to complain about it.
Don't Sit Alone
If you are single, do not sit alone! Get together with your girlfriends or go out with your family. You will make yourself sad for no reason if you hang out alone.
Don't Hate Other People For Loving Valentine's Day
This is a big one. I don't like Valentine's Day, but I don't hate other people who obsess over it. Some people love V-Day, and that's it. No one's judging you for obsessing over some obscure holiday so just chill out.
