I have to disagree with Taylor, staying in on Valentine’s day with your friends is nothing but pathetic. Even though every romantic comedy makes it seem like is impossible to be happy single. You don’t need anyone, but yourself to be happy. You are a strong independent women who don’t need no man.
1. You don’t have to spend any time picking out something he “might” like
I have two older brothers and still have no idea what to get a guy in any situation. I usually write something dirty, but probably shouldn’t do that cause well, I’m single so clearly doesn’t work.
2. You can look as fancy or as ratchet As You Want
The best part of staying in is you don’t have to wait 45 minutes to get into a so-so restaurant in your town than to get seated next to some couple who is feeding each other chocolate cake. When you stay in your friends and put frozen food in the oven and bake some chocolate goodies.
3. No disappointment
After being in a relationship for the past year, only thing amazing about being single is there’s no disappointment. Here’s my trick talk to at least three guys, therefore you can’t ever build up expectations. Also, I’ve gone through planning pretty romantic things to never be what I thought it would be. Long story short any girl who rants about how great her boyfriend was on V-day, it probably wasn’t that lit.
4. Boys come and go, best friends stay through it all
5. You don’t have to share
Oh, your boyfriend bought you a box of chocolate, but you didn’t get any? The best thing about any holiday regarding candy is the day after everything is half off. You can have all the candy you want and can eat that toffee bar that you normally let him have.
6. You can do WHATEVER you want
No Taylor you don’t. Every article about being single on Valentines Day says that if you’re single that it’s just a normal day, but why does it have to be? Do something you want to do, just cause you’re single doesn’t mean you have to go home watch mad men, and shit on guys. Treat ‘yo self.
7. You can meet someone new on Valentines Day
Just cause it’s on some random day in the middle of the week doesn’t mean you can’t go out. Go out, wear that cute top you’ve been needing a reason to wear. Meeting new people is a great thing, which we don’t (at least my generation) doesn’t take advantage of.
