It’s easy to fall victim to the Valentine’s Day blues, resulting in feelings of loneliness, insecurity and self-doubt. But we think you should be celebrating your singleness more than ever in the month of February. And, just in case you don’t believe us, here are six reasons why you should be totally content not being coupled up this year:
TIME TO FOCUS ON OTHER RELATIONSHIPS
There are so many people in your life that love you. Being single gives you more time to be with those people who love you in a non-romantic but just as meaningful way. Check into those relationships that already matter, and give them the love they deserve for once. Go to dinner with your sibling or another single vina!
Valentine’s Day is a big suckhole of unneeded gifts and throwaway sentiments. Instead of spending money to try and prove your love to someone else, start a savings account so you can love yourself down the line!
While everyone else is stuffing their faces with candy, get a leg up, and use this as fuel to become the best-feeling you. Pass up that box of chocolates, and try a boxing class.
HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO
50% off chocolate on February 15th. Enough said. There’s never a reason for you to have to share your favorite foods, candy, heated blanket, etc. Or have to compromise on what TV show to binge watch. They’re all your own decisions, all day, every day. Get it girl.
YOU CAN GIVE BACK
Use your freer schedule as a reason to do a good deed. While everyone else is spending their Valentine’s Day focused on themselves and their partners, you can steer that energy outward. Volunteer at your favorite philanthropy, or babysit for one of your vinas who is in a relationship.
TREAT YO SELF
‘Cause self-love is the highest order of love. Not having to spend money on someone else (see reason two) means you can spend twice as much on yourself if you want! Couple’s massage…Pshhhh, how about two massages for you? Spend that money on some new shoes or that coat you’ve been eyeballing all winter. Because guess what? You deserve it.
