I’ve always been single on Valentine’s Day and unless something drastically changes in the next couple of weeks, I’m going to be single this Valentine’s Day as well. I’m not against the holiday, actually. In fact, I think it’s a little over the top when people go on and on about how much they hate it. It’s a holiday about lovey dovey crap, big deal. Ignore it, I say.
But at the same time I sort of understand that it can feel a little alienating, especially if a lot of your friends are in relationships. But it’s not the end of the world, girls. Sure, I wouldn’t mind having a boyfriend on Valentine’s Day, but there are plenty of perks to not having a GF/BF on this so-called most romantic day of the year. If you don’t believe me, check out these seven things you can do as a single lady this Valentine’s Day.
Eat A Bunch Of ChocolateUh, why share that with a BF or GF when you can eat it all on your own? Pfft, sharing is caring but not in this case. Source: Clueless/Paramount Pictures
Have An Anti-Valentine's Day PartyYou don't have to be aggressive about it. But you can get together with some people, create a mix and have a little party that is all about rejecting the silliness of this over-commercialized holiday. Also, music, friends an acting like you hate romance is always a little fun. Source: Hey Arnold/Nickelodeon
Hang Out With Your Single FriendsSingle only! Naw, not your friend who who is going to meet up with her boo thing later that night. Not your friend who is sacrificing a date night to not make you feel left out. They can go off and have their little trysts. I'm talking single folks livin' it up, you know? Source: Living Single/Fox
