Dear single person
First of all, you must know that you aren’t alone. I am also single and this for 21 years now, wait it even gets better I’m 21 years old. Last year I was depressed about this fact on this special day, which is only meant to be for lovers. As a child, I was excited for my parents, excited for them to spend a romantic day. But since last year they are divorced. So, I really have no reason to be delighted on this day.
Actually, I can claim that I have experience with being single on Valentines’ Days. For me, it has always been just another normal day. But I admit that I usually spent a short time of these days thinking why I have no lover again this year. I guess I am just waiting for the right person to fall in love with. First, let me explain to you how I will spend my Valentine’s Day this year. Then I will give some advice, which could help you to spend your Valentine’s Day as a single person.
This year the Valentine’s Day is on a Wednesday, this means the most people must go to work, it also means that we won’t see many annoying couples during the day outside. This fact doesn’t matter for me because I will probably be at home the entire day. I’m still on my semester vacations, therefore I don’t have to go to the university. I will wake up early at 8 a.m. and eat breakfast as always. Then I will be studying until noon. After lunch, I will keep studying maybe until 6 p.m. Really boring right? Yes, I know. But wait, it’s my day, not yours. In the evening I’m going to watch some new episodes of the series “Greenhouse Academy” on Netflix, the second season will be released exactly on this year’s Valentine’s Day. After eating dinner while watching Netflix I will sleep and will have survived the day.
Now my advice for you
If you’re someone who will be depressed on this day because you’re single or you just have broken up with your ex, then you shouldn’t spend the day on your own. Find another single person, this could be one of your friends, siblings, cousins or just somebody you know very well. If you have nobody then you got me, send me a direct message on social media so we can chat about this terrible day. You can find me on Twitter and Instagram @erenblogs. Afterwards, you can do with this person any activities you both enjoy. You could cook a nice meal together, watch your favorite movie, do any sport, go to the gym, which will probably be empty in the evening. Just have fun with this person. But avoid going out somewhere, where all the couples will be. This means no cinemas, no restaurants, no malls, and no places in nature, where couples can go for a romantic walk. In this case, our aim is to stay away from the couples. Most important avoid social media apps, because every couple will share their cute pictures with the hashtags #forever, #valentinesday, #valentine, and #LOVE. Just log out yourself for the whole day, the next day nobody will care anymore.
If you’re ok on your own with being single. Then you can spend your day alone. You could do a wellness day, take a long warm bath, use a face mask and cook a healthy meal. Also, do your favorite type of sport to feel fit and healthy. In your case, you can go outside and see the couples, just ignore them and focus on yourself. Go to your favorite places and enjoy yourself. You can also stay at home like me and watch movies and series of your favorite actors. Or just read the book, you always wanted to read but never had time for. You could also make a list of the characteristics your dream lover should have. Who knows maybe you will meet him/her the next day.
To end this blog post I want you to know that even you’re not in a relationship yet, you are worth it and loveable. Don’t think the opposite! Love yourself every day and true love will find you one day for sure.
