For me the highlight of Valentine’s Day is when it’s over and all of the chocolate goes on sale. I’m sure this is the same for all of the other singles out there. It’s actually kind of shameful that we need a holiday to show our love for someone. Most people either love it or they hate it. Personally, I don’t completely agree with the holiday and here’s why:
In a lot of cases, Valentine’s Day is a day for men to “make up” for the fact that they’re totally unromantic the other 364 days of the year. Also, I believe that a man should give flowers, chocolates, and unconditional love to his lady year round. I would rather be surprised with a romantic dinner and flowers on a random day. It means so much more that he took the time to do something like that on a completely insignificant day.
I feel like Valentine’s Day takes a toll on the single girls out there. Some the single ladies in the world hate V-day because they haven’t found that special someone yet. In most cases, you’re perfectly fine with being single on any other day of the year. Don’t let everyone else’s love (or lust) get you down!
Some of the female population without a man just got out of a relationship. Nothing like the most romantic holiday of the year to twist the knife caused by a recent break-up. “Love hurts” you say? Nope, but heartbreak does.
And then there’s the proud single ladies. Livin’ life for yourself, independent, career-driven and proud of it. On the most romantic day of the year we’re happy hanging out with our besties or doing our own thing.
……possibly with Netflix and a bottle of wine.
If you’re without a plan, here are some quick ideas to keep you entertained while couples are wining and dining.
1. Make Dinner for your Besties

4. Keep it simple: pizza and movie night.
5. Have a productive night in.
There’s always something that you’ve been “wanting to get around to” but haven’t had the time (like making your closet look like this one!)
