Expecting a super sweet day of kisses on what is meant to be one of the most romantic days in the calendar? Singles unite! This is not a time to wallow, but rather to celebrate (and get very drunk… you do you)! In fact, your coupled-up friends will be quite jealous of the Valentine’s Day plans you regal them about over a sensible dinner party with a bottle of regular red. Anyway, read on to discover why it is totally cool to be the single one on Valentine’s Day (we promise).
1. You can pamper in peace
When able to spend the day by yourself, do what makes you feel really good! Practice yoga, pamper in your PJs (fancy or comfy), get your nails done, or just slob out with a sourdough pizza. You can drink that bottle of ‘manager’s special’ without having to squeeze into something “sexy” and put your fave celeb crush films on repeat, dreamy. Over to you, Jake Gyllenhaal.
2. You are not in a crappy relationship
Unfortunately, most people have encountered some form of toxicity in a relationship. Now is the time to take a moment and remember how sh*t it was, how good it feels to be free, and how nice it is to be drama-free in 2017. Count those single blessings and swipe right if you’re feeling a lil’ footloose and flirty, no strings here, baby.
3. Cheap wine and chocolates
Not only are you saved from splashing your hard-earned cash on a sub-par date night in a novelty themed venue (Valentine’s Crazy Golf, anyone?) but chocolates and V-Day vino are also half price the next day. Win.
4. The hotties at the bar are also single
It might feel like you’re the only single grrrl on the planet, and those non-stop office deliveries aren’t helping tbqh Karen, but if you’re up for a night out you’ll meet an abundance of singletons in those non-romantic locations! Why not go on a girls’ night out? An insider let us know Cupid works extra hard on Feb 14th…
5. Time to celebrate all the love in your life
Believe it or not, we think Valentine’s Day is a great day to remember that life isn’t all about bfs, partners, honeys, man/galfriends, gfs or spouses. Instead, celebrate the other great people in your life. Whether that be friends, family or work colleagues (calling Team HANX, we’ve gotchu!) - make the most of Valentine’s Day and be the inspiration your other single friends need.
