Since my sweater is almost sold out, here’s some more great pics from Chicwish!
We’re upon that time of year where everything is popping up pink hearts, red roses, and the phrase “I love you” is printed everywhere. Personally I’m a fan of Valentine’s Day and always have been. I love that everything is so pink, pretty, girly, and gives me an excuse to consume more chocolate in a day than I would in a week. Then you have the other types of people. The single people. The single people that are sad and bitter about being single and share the meme of Sheldon spraying a Lysol can to the caption “When people tell me love is in the air” all over their social media feeds.
As someone who’s been single for all but one Valentine’s Day, I’m here to tell you that I get it. I get feeling lonely and sad on Valentine’s Day because it seems like everyone else has someone but you. Everyone is planning out cute dates (and probably proposals) for their significant other and you’re standing off in the distance left to wonder when that will be you. But I’m also here to tell you that Valentine’s Day is NOT just for relationships. Anyone can enjoy it, you just have to have the right outlook! Here are some of my favorite tips and ideas on how to enjoy Valentine’s Day when you’re a single gal.
Host a Galentine’s Day party
You had to know this was going to be my first idea, because Galentine’s Day is almost better than just plain old Valentine’s Day. What better way to spend being single on Valentine’s Day than to binge watch romcoms in your pjs and eat chocolate with your closest girlfriends? Or get all dressed up and go out!
Who says you can’t get yourself a Valentine’s day gift? Buy yourself flowers and chocolate, go to a movie or nice dinner, or get yourself something pretty!
This goes along with treat yourself, but less expensive. Take a long bubble bath, use a face mask, paint your nails, blast your favorite playlist, or binge watch your favorite TV show in your coziest pjs!
Spend Your Time and Energy On Others
Instead of spending the day being sad that you’re single on Valentine’s Day, spend your time making others feel loved. Often times when we focus our energy on something bigger than ourselves we’re happier and more positive people. Buy a little something for the close people in your life, or do something nice for them like handing out homemade Valentine cards or baking a goodie. Making others feel loved and happy will in turn make you happy instead of feeling like you’re missing something without a SO.
Realize Your Time Will Come
If nothing else on this list helped whatsoever, let me leave you with this. Just because you don’t have a Valentine this year, doesn’t mean you won’t have one next year. Everything happens in it’s time, and if now isn’t that time for you, one day in the future it will be.
