How To: Enjoy Valentine’s Day while single
During the month of February, there are two different types of people. There are the extremists who cannot wait for Valentine’s Day and expect the cliché candy hearts and red roses. Then, there are the people who dread the “day of love” and claim it is a Hallmark holiday.
Often times, the people who dread Valentine’s Day are single; they do not like the holiday because it is just another day to remind them that they are single; however it does not have to be like this. It is important to find a balance; although Valentine’s Day should not be hated, it also should not be taken too seriously.
Valentine’s Day does not have to be a day spent with a significant other. The holiday is known as the day of love, so spend it with loved ones; whether that is family or friends, be sure to enjoy the company. Valentine’s Day can be a fun, happy holiday. It does not matter if the plan is to stay in and watch a movie or to a party as long as it is a positive celebration.
Being single is not the end of the world. For example, the Valentine’s Day extremists often give gift buying a negative connotation. People get stressed out and end up paying a lot of money for a weak high school relationship. Being single will not only save money, but it will also save the stress of buying a gift.
The most important thing to remember when celebrating Valentine’s Day when single is to be happy with yourself. Valentine’s Day should not be thought of a way to express love for one day; it should be a day that reminds people of all the love in the world. Valentine’s Day is a reminder for everyone to be grateful for the people in their lives.
Although the fancy dinner and love letter might sound enjoyable on Valentine’s Day, it is so much more than that.
