Valentine's Day is typically a day of fun and romance for those who are in a relationship or have a special someone in their lives, but simultaneously it can be a day of frustration for those who are single. In this post I will share some ways to enjoy Valentine's Day as a single person.
1. Know that you are not alone.
This is important, because around this time it is easy to feel a little down or like everyone, except for you, is in a relationship. During this time there are constant reminders of love and couples and you may be drawn more to wanting this or feeling like you are missing out. You are not alone. There are a lot of single people out here, and it is important to remind yourself of this.
2. Do not romanticize being in a relationship.
*Insert sarcastic tone here* I know life would be so much better if you were in a relationship and somehow single people are worse off than those in a relationship. But on a serious note, please refrain from romanticizing being in a relationship. The goal should be learning to live a happy and fulfilled life while single. Recognize the various options that you have to make yourself happy and indulge in them for Valentine's Day.
3. Do Something You Enjoy
- Treat yourself to a spa day
- Enjoy an evening out with friends
- Plan a Galantine's Day party
- Try a new restaurant
- Visit a museum
- Go to karaoke
Find the thing you thoroughly enjoy or a new experience you'd like to try and go for it.
Whether you are single or in a relationship, Valentine's Day is a day of love. It is a festive holiday to cater to yourself, your spouse, your children, etc. It is not just a day of romantic love. You define how to celebrate this day and how to spread love.
