Being Single on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is just a few breaths away and a lot of people [those who are currently dating, in a relationship or married] are thinking of how to make their significant others feel extra special on this day.

Others are trying to come-up with creative ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day while others are going for the simple-type of celebration.  After all, they would argue, the important thing is being together and feeling the loooovvveee… [elch] 😀

But whattabout those who are single?

In their attempts to make single people feel better on this day, friends who are part of a couple would say that Valentine’s isn’t only for lovers [in the coupling sense of the word]; but rather it’s a day to celebrate love and everyone in your life is part of your love circle.

Tsk.  Tsk.  Let’s face it, single people just feel a bit of envy when they see lovers all gooey-eyed and exchanging love mementos on Valentine’s Day.  This is the only time of the year where you see a lot of women proudly carrying their bouquet of flowers all on the same day. 🙂

Whether you are happily single or are still waiting for your The One, Valentine’s needn’t be a day of mourning and depression.  Valentine’s is the one time of the year where you should all the more put extra effort in celebrating being single.

Gather all your friends who are in the same boat and toast your singlehood. 😀  Don’t talk about your sob stories or reminisce about past relationships where you had this or that kind of magical Valentine’s Day.

If you want to talk about love [again in the coupling sense of the word], talk about the kind of person you want in your life.  What qualities you wish for your partner to have; their looks; characters and such.  Perhaps you can also talk about the lessons you have learned from your past relationships which have now given you a better idea of what it is you exactly want from a partner. 🙂

The thing is, you don’t have to feel sorry for yourself if you don’t have a significant other this Valentine’s.  There’s always next year, and the next, and the next…for as long as you live. 🙂

Surround yourself with love…from your friends and family.  Celebrate, throw a party for all your single friends and family; or get your favorite book, snuggle up in bed with warm cocoa in hand and enjoy your single days. 😉

…and comfort yourself with the thought that the couples you may know now may not be couples anymore next year…or perhaps their only celebration of love is during Valentine’s but the rest of the year they’re like cat and mouse!  Hahaha!!!!! 😀
