The covetous Valentine’s Day has served as a staple for affection with your partner for many years. To those who can’t attest to this hallmark holiday, you may find solace in different ways than others. Here’s 4 ideas to conquer this year’s Valentine’s Day as a single person…
1. Go Party
Fortunately, this year’s Valentine’s Day lands on a desirable Saturday. So, gather some friends and tie one on for the night; you’ll instantly bond with your family or peers in a calming environment that’ll defuse any stress you’ve accumulated entering the night. Cool out and enjoy yourself by basking in the rarefied air of singledom.
2. Surprise Someone
Whether it’s a family member, friend, or a person you’ve been recently pitching woo at —surprise them with a gift. The gift doesn’t have to be extravagant, just something that’ll subtly get the point across; preferably being a card or candy. Any platonic relationship you have with a person over many years would be a delightful bolt from the blue for their well-being. Sweeping someone off their feet never hurt anybody, but does leave a lasting impact on their appreciation of you in their life.
Exercise is a boon on any day, this day should not be any different. You can channel some of your tempestuous emotions into a form of working out. By freeing your mind of unnecessary ruminations all day, you’ll unquestionably grow a little more confident by the mere fact that you’ve done some self-reform!
Unplug yourself from social media for the day. The breath of fresh air that you will endure is ineffable. Of course, seeing all the lovely gifts everybody receives on Facebook and Instagram can be endearing, but unfortunately, it can also naturally evoke envy. Many of the enviable presents that males or females bestow upon one another will be illuminated on Valentine’s day, thus engendering a sense of uncertainty about where you are in your path to love. Why not nip this in the bud & avoid all the frenzy?
