Well…I was going to restrain from posting on Valentine’s Day but I can’t help it. I am a hopeless romantic but something about this day when you are single makes you think about anything but your relationship status.
I am stuck thinking about Valentine’s and I have to say that I have not had the best experience thus far. When I was little I used to run around chasing boys and it seems not much has changed since then. As I browsed through news and online posts today, my attention was caught by a “how to online date”. One said that if you want to find someone online you should use descriptive words, another said to use a catchy online screen name, like chasing_kt. To all these I have to just say one thing…ridiculous!
Whatever happened to being yourself and being okay with who you are. You are great and lovely (unless you’re a serial killer or rapist) just as you are. If you pay attention to social media and to not, you would have to be living on a remote hillside, there are what love means posts and reminders of a day that is just like any day of the year.
So here is how to handle being single during valentine’s day.
❤ do what you normally would do.
❤ take yourself to coffee/breakfast/massage/to the fifty shades of grey movie if you are a masochist.
❤ tell people you love that you care about them (this is where you send them cards and give chocolates, sometimes a phone call suffices).
❤ get outside…walk, notice the birds and for the love of god, DO NOT WATCH A ROM COM….watch Fargo instead…or anything that is slightly twisted.
❤ get wine, beer or whiskey and friends and try and not send a drunk text to your shitty ex tonight when you are three sheets to the wind.
Well there you have it, some helpful reminders about how to handle being single amidst a see of love struck hand holders….don’t worry tomorrow they will go back to being totally normal and barely speaking.
