Why It's Great Being Single on Valentine's Day

It's that time of year again, where all the single ladies (see what I did there) lament and complain about how they don't have a special someone in their lives. Well, I'm here to tell you that being single on Valentine's Day is kind of the best thing ever!

1. You can spend the whole day with your girlfriends.
(This is from the show Parks and Recreation, a.k.a. one of my favorite shows)

When you're in a relationship, sometimes it's hard to make time for your closest girlfriends; so since you're single on this day that can be very lonely for people not in relationships, spend the day with your friends! You can make each other feel better about not being in a relationship, and chances are, you'll have a much more fun day with all of them than you ever would with some guy.

2. If you want to stay in and do nothing all day, go right ahead!
My Valentine's day will most likely be spent doing exactly this, and I really have no shame about it. The beauty of not having to impress a date is, you can wear your baggiest clothes. All. Day. You don't have anyone to dress up for (except of course for yourself!), so make the most of it on this day and just don't try at all. And watch Netflix all day.

3. Treat Yourself.
(Please tell me some of you guys watch this show)

This is also known as "Treat. Yo. Self." Go out and buy all of the things that a significant other would buy you: jewelry, a nice dinner, a manicure/pedicure, or anything else you might want! This day is all about love, so why not love yourself! It's perfectly healthy to focus solely on yourself for one day, and being single on Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse!

4. You don't have to spend hours getting ready for the night.
With all that time you're saving by not having to get ready for a date, spend it doing something you love. Or, spend it on the couch watching those three extra episodes of Friends (or Parks and Rec because you all should watch it...I promise this post isn't sponsored by this show)

5. Think of all the money you're saving.
By being single, you don't have to go out and get an elaborate gift for anyone, or spend money on a date! Just think of all the better uses that money could go towards, like chocolate, ice cream, movies, popcorn, new comfy pajamas....

Well there you have it, five great reasons why being single on Valentine's Day is basically the best thing ever! But on a more serious note, don't worry if you're not in a relationship because you don't need to depend on anyone else to have your own happiness! Don't let a day that pretty much celebrates couples bring you down if you aren't in a relationship, because there's really nothing wrong with that! When it's the right time for you to be in a relationship, and you find a great person to be in one with, it will happen! You guys are all perfect just the way you are (this just got real cheesy, real fast, I apologize.)

Do you have any plans for Valentine's Day?

Thank you so much for reading, and have a great day! :)

    1. Haha thanks! I figured all of us single ladies needed some words of encouragement before Valentine's Day!

  2. This is such a good post with some valid points. There is so much more to life than having a boyfriend. There are so many others who love you like.


    1. So true! A lot of the times my friends get SO wrapped up into finding a boyfriend - it's like they're placing their self worth on whether or not they have a man!

  3. Absolutely love this post - I was actually thinking of doing something just like this! Haha number two is probably my favorite!
