How to Be Single On Valentines Day



  Let's be real, Valentine's Day sucks when you are single. Honestly, it does not have to. There are ways to make February 14th less lonely and sad.

 So all my fellow single people, let me show you the way to make the day good.

But first let me tell you a story.

It was Moonshine's first Valentine's Day alone since Chris broke up with her. Five Valentine's of having a boyfriend then not can really mess with someone. She had no clue how to spend the holiday alone nor did she really want anything to do with it this year. 

 Kisses from Moonpup wiped away the tears that fell from her black eyes. 
    "Oh, Moonpup at least I know you will never leave me. We shall spend Valentine's together. Who needs a man?"

She stopped crying as she held Moonpup tight


1. Have girls or boys night

    Celebrate the holiday with your fellow single gals or guys. It will be fun and less lonely. 

 Girls can talk about how much boys suck or their crushes. Boys can do whatever they do. Honestly. I am a girl so I really don't know what a boys night in would be like. 


2. Stay home and sulk in your loneliness

 Why not just get in your sexy pajamas, drink some alcohol (if you are of age), eat some ice cream and put on some of your favorite movies. 

 Spending time with yourself and giving yourself some crying time does great for mental health.

 This is normally what I do since I don't have any friends and prefer to spend my time with my puppy. 

 3. Spend time with the family

  I know who wants to spend time with their family on Valentine's Day. Spending time with people you love, love you and make you happy also does great for mental health. 

 Hopefully, your family is not the type who asks why you are single on Valentine's. That would be quite awkward 

4. Think of the holiday as just a regular day

  Think of it this way, on Mother's day you don't see many people complaining that they don't have a mom to celebrate the day with.

 Why?
The holidays really don't matter. They are just there to make people spend money and feel more depressed then they really are which in turn makes people spend more money. The holidays are mainly for consumers not what the holiday or who the holiday is celebrating.

  I mean what is the point of only saying your significant other is special only one day of the year? Or that your mom is? You should be celebrating them all year round. 

5. Go to a dog shelter or homeless shelter

  Animals are great for helping change your mood. Animals also can care less about any holiday, or if you are single. They care about attention. 

 Many people in a homeless shelter don't have the family or significant other to care for them. They are just as lonely and sad as you or the animals. 

 These are great causes that will make you feel good, someone else feel good and make you forget about your depressing life for a while.

Conclusion


 Single or in a relationship, February 14th really should not matter.  It is just a consumer holiday made for the economy to make money.

 If you must then take the day to feel sorry for yourself. Then go and change that. Figure out why you are single.

Have you not put yourself out there enough? 
Did you experience heartbreak not too long ago? 
Have you been neglecting yourself? 

  Life is too short to spend it alone feeling sorry for yourself all the time.

  3. Great post.. I agreed, there's no reason why girls or boys should feel sad if they got no one on valentine's day. I think is just pressure coming from other people. Go out & enjoy life :)
