So how can you survive Valentine ’s Day as a singleton?
First of all, treat yourself. Buy yourself something sensible, or not so sensible – the decision is entirely yours! Maybe you have been looking at something since Christmas but didn’t go for it, well now’s your chance to spalsh the cash totally guilt free! Maybe a book, a game, a bottle of a nice wine, some clothes? Whatever you choose, this is all about you. After that, write yourself a little message, this can be something positive, something you are proud of or something you have achieved! This self-reassurance goes a long way to making you feel comfortable with yourself and happy that your life is going exactly how it should be.
Do not make yourself feel bad by judging yourself on other people’s ideals. This is your life, no one else’s – do things when you want, how you want. Imagine how many people are unhappy in their relationships? You do not have that problem. Another innovative option is: if you want to treat yourself on Valentine’s Day you can invest in something like Birchbox! Never heard of it?
Single Swag is a box full of different gifts for singles, from books to wooden art. It is designed to uplift and make you feel special.
Secondly, stay at home and chill – run a bath, cook a meal and pour yourself a glass of your favourite tipple. Truly pamper yourself, take care of your skin, and watch your favourite series. There is no need to feel sad or guilty just because you are single.
Alternatively, if you want to go out, try looking for parties or club events that are designed for single people – some of them are amazing, you can meet interesting people who share the same ideas, thoughts and feelings – Maybe it will be the start of a new chapter in your life?
If you and your friends are single, bonus! You can arrange a nice date with your girls or hang out in a nice pub with the boys. It will be a fun and very uplifting experience. You can share stories of all the disastrous dates you have been on! Having a glass of wine, a beer or sharing some nice food will be the perfect way to spend the day.
Spend less time on social media
Why? The answer is simple. Valentines day is the day of those cringey couples sharing pictures, comments, memories, engagements even! People like to over-share.They want you to see just how happy and perfect their lives are (even when for the most part, they actually aren’t) If you are a bit sad and disappointed that you are alone on valentine’s day, it is better for you just to cut off yourself for a day or two. Trust us, there is nothing important to see here!
Maybe it is time to make some life changes? Change your diet, detox and take care of your body? Try to exercise or buy a gym membership. It will motivate you to look better and it could even be your new hobby? Who knows – maybe you might even meet that special person you’ve been searching for?
Go for a walk, stretch in the morning before you go to work – Hit the swimming pool and do a few lengths or ask in your gym about group classes? Have you ever wanted to change something in your life? Maybe this is the best time to embrace those desires and make it happen! Think also about your diet, how much alcohol you drink, do you smoke and are you sleeping enough? Take care of yourself, there is nobody in this world who should love you more than you love yourself. Diet and exercise play huge roles in uplifting our moods, improving our health and giving us an all-round sense of good well-being. Exercise also releases feel good chemicals and today of all days, it may be the boost you really need.
How about…..masturbation? There are many advantages to masturbation and self-love. First of all it relaxes you, there are many health benefits to masturbation. It may even help towards preventing some degenerate diseases and well… it makes you smile and it will flood your body with endorphins! The Second thing to consider is that the stress hormone, also called cortisol, gets released when you ejaculate! This is sounding like a pretty good Valentine’s Day so far, right? For those of you who simply cant be bothered to cook on valentine’s day, order your favourite food and as we said before pick your favourite series or movie to watch and kick back. That is why, masturbation and chilling out on Valentine’s day is for you.
Summing up, there are some people in relationships who feel so miserable on Valentine’s Day but you need to say to yourself: everything happens for a reason. Maybe this is the time of opening new doors, taking care of yourself, changing some bad habits, refreshing your relationship with family and friends, and doing things that you have normally not got enough time for.
