Or any other day for that matter
Being single maybe your choice, or you might consider it an irritating and temporary circumstance that needs resolving ASAP, but finding yourself alone on Valentine’s Day should never be a cause for concern. Let’s face it the whole shebang is part of a global retail marketing machine anyway, designed to make you part with cash for goods and services pushed out to the masses at an inferior quality than usual. Why anyone complies beggars belief!
But, not everyone can resist the pressure and feelings of sadness about being single on a day dedicated to lovers can creep into the minds of even the most steely strong and independent women. I am here to tell you are not alone and also to get some bloody perspective on the situation. For a kick-off, there are millions of people out there just like you and while some are happy being alone, others are snivelling into handkerchiefs and it’s time to stop because your life is NOT empty or incomplete if you’re uncoupled.
There are many advantages to being single. For example;
Embrace all of them and don’t feel guilty because being single is a state to be enjoyed and cherished. Think of it as time for enrichment, a chance to try new experiences, meet new people and develop your independence. Being single at least once in your life will benefit your personality, making you more interesting and attractive.
However if none of this appeals and you’re adamant that you work better with a significant other then I suggest enlisting the help of friends. Smug marrieds love nothing more than playing match-maker so refuse to attend their functions unless they invite other, preferably good-looking, singles to functions so you can mingle with similar unattached people. Get close friends to write your online dating profile because they will make you sound far better than you ever could.
Above everything, be open to the unexpected because love can take us by surprise!
And don't forget to love yourself first, because if you can't love yourself, how the hell are you gonna love anyone else?
