Singles’ Cheat Sheet To Valentine’s Day!
Every year sees the same pattern, the month of February starts and the red roses and chocolates come out. The celebration of love, the appreciation of one’s partner and the never ending thoughts about what gifts to get and what places to go out to.
But, this day (or week) that is supposed to be a day to appreciate love, has also become a day to hate for all those people who do not have a significant other or a loved one to celebrate it with. Along with chocolates and roses, the trolls and the memes also come out on 1st of February. Even though the single people might say that it’s just another Tuesday this year or they don’t care, nobody really hates having a special someone in their life to celebrate this Day with.
So for all the beautiful people who do not have a partner to celebrate this Day of love with, here is a little cheat sheet on how you can still celebrate and make the best out of Valentine’s Day. It does not have to be just another Tuesday for you, celebrate love by having a good time with your other single friends (and judge all the couples around if that is what your idea of a good time for that day might be).
Go out. Have fun. A girlfriend/boyfriend is not the only person who would love you, celebrate it with your friends and cherish your moments with your family because they are the true love of everyone’s lives. Buy little presents for the people that make your daily life a little better and make you laugh a little louder. Yes, you might see a lot of couples around showing off their love and relationship, but it’s their day, let them have their fun. That does not mean you cannot celebrate it, it’s your day too. Dress up a bit, go out with your friends to a nice place and have some fun, who knows? You might find the love of your life right there in that crowd who is celebrating his/her single life and freedom along with his/her friends too.
Being single is showcased as a curse or a deficiency in this Tech savvy age, but what these “committed” people fail to understand is that you have your freedom to go about wherever you like and with whoever you like. I do not mean to say that love binds you, but in this age of constant texting and WhatsApp and Instagram, you forget to explore the moments that are right there in front of you.
So, this Valentine’s Day you have multiple options to choose from, because you’re the only one calling the shots. Have a night out with your friends, or just stay home and get your favorite food and watch your favorite TV shows or movies (don’t listen to all those people saying that staying at home in front of your laptop is a sign of loneliness, they don’t know the power of all those amazing characters that make you feel as if you’re in a different time with a totally different crowd), have a house party with all your homies (that way you save up on the cover charges to all those expensive places), spend time with your family and have a nice dinner and chat with them, or if Singleness bores you so much, go out and find someone equally Single who might also be looking for a Valentine’s date and have fun!
Just have a good time and relish this day of Love and appreciate your freedom.
