Singles can still celebrate
ROSES are red, violets are blue, I’m still single, what am I to do?
If the thought of going solo for Valentine’s Day fills you with dread, or at least makes you feel slightly bitter, take heart. You don’t have to stay under the covers all day and wait for it to be over.
Here are some ways to make a single person’s Valentine’s Day special:
If you are not expecting anyone to lavish you with chocolate and flowers and you’re feeling sensitive about it,
stay off social media.
Seriously, it’s not worth it because you know your feed will be filled with your loved-up friends showing off their roses and declaring how “blessed” they are. Instead, get yourself those chocolates and roses, gosh darn it, you deserve them too!
2 Plan something
special. Whether it’s a takeaway, a favourite DVD or a tub of your most indulgent ice cream, pick something to celebrate the day and enjoy it.
3 Don’t go it alone.
Hopefully not all your friends are hooked up. Scout around and find out who else in your social circle is a singleton and go out for a group dinner. Laugh, let your hair down and have fun.
4 Cuddle your pet.
Who loves you baby? Your pet does, of course. So hang out with your best furry buddy and soak up that unconditional love.
