HOW TO: BE SINGLE ON VALENTINES DAY AND COPE WITH IT

Hey Readers!
...or should I say single friends? 
As you guessed from the title, this post is my personal take on how to be single on Valentines Day.
You must be thinking, 'What sort of person has enough time on their hands to write a post on this?'
Well I'll tell you the answer to that one! A single person. Me. I'm a single person. I have enough time on my hands BECAUSE I'M A SINGLE PERSON. I think you get what I'm trying to say here.

Enough of that. 

What inspired me to write a post like this you may ask? Well as we have just established that I am in fact, single, I'm also sick of the bitterness that is associated with being alone on Valentines Day.
You see, these past few weeks I have been walking past $600 teddy bears, signs that say "Diamonds For The One You Love" and copious amounts of cute gift wrap and cards that state "10 reasons why you're the best girlfriend". Ugh. This leads me to yell "stuff this!" and "FML" and almost immediately feel crappy.





These harsh reminders prove that Valentines Day is just around the corner and although this isn't the first time I've spent it alone, I've decided to actually stop the negative thoughts this year...starting from now.

Instead of watching Love Actually with a box of tissues and a 1L tub of Neapolitan ice-cream, I've decided that I'm going to focus on having the best day dedicated to my one and only..myself.
Before you think I'm crazy and press the X in the right hand corner, read on because you may feel liberated after reading this. Or you won't and if you don't, I'm terribly sorry and hope you have a good day anyway.

FOCUS ON YOURSELF

I know what you're thinking, "easier said than done". That's true. However, moping around the house in your pj's isn't going to make you feel better. Nor will be scrolling through your Facebook News Feed and watching all of your friends get spoilt.

My best friends are happily taken. I like to have the mindset that they're saving the best until last. Which is absolutely ridiculous and totally untrue, but it eases the pain.

It's important to focus on yourself and improve the person you are. You have to love yourself before you can love another.


If you're independent and picky like me, you will know what you want and deserve. One day isn't going to shy you away from that.


I think what's best for a single person to do is to make plans for this day. I'm set on having a great day.

This Valentine's Day I'm going to:
1. Buy myself flowers. I love flowers. Roses are my favourite.
2. Have a bath with a rose-scented bath bomb. Heaven is calling.
3. Watch movies in bed, comedies are great at a time like this.
4. I will most likely buy pizza.
5. I will dance around with no pants on to 'Single Ladies'.




Have the "I don't need a man" outlook and this day will be wonderful. 

Some quotes to get you by:

"The right man will love all the things about you that the wrong man was intimidated by"

"I like my lovers selfish. Do you know how sexy it is when someone only wants you?"

It's so important to remember, if a guy wants you in his life, he will make sure you are. If he wants to be around you, there is nothing that could stop him. He will text you, he will call you. If he's the right one, you won't have to be constantly reminding him that you still exist. There is someone out there who has been waiting all their life for you, and I guarantee you that once he has you, he won't ever let you go.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Love,
Amber x
