Whether you are in a new relationship, have been married for 30 years, or are just plain single, there are so many ways to enjoy this holiday of love. But to be honest, I think Valentine’s Day is a lot more fun when you don’t have to stress out about what to get your significant other. So often online, we see way too many BuzzFeed videos and tweets about being #foreveralone on a day that is known for spotlighting the glory of relationships.
Yet there are so many reasons why Valentines Day can be so fun for those of us who aren’t in relationships.
1. No Sharing!
With no one you are obligated to share your heart shaped chocolates with, you are totally free to keep the whole box for yourself! So, don’t be afraid to hold back! Order the extra banana peppers your ex would have hated for your family size pizza, sit back and enjoy!
2. You get to spend extra time indulging in self care.
Whether you are a corporate workaholic, a student or a stay-at-home mom, I think we can all agree that sometimes life can just be a bit too much. Self care is ridiculously important especially considering how it pertains to mental health. So, since you don’t have to worry about taking care of someone else, go ahead and treat yourself! Take a bath with a colorful bath bomb or bundle up in a warm Snuggie!
3. Netflix and chill, but on your own free will
Being single on Valentine’s Day is even more of a reason to take advantage of having the remote to yourself. So I highly encourage you to literally just Netflix and chill. Why think about the slang meaning of the term when the literal meaning is so much more relaxing?
