Single for Valentine’s?

Will you be spending Valentine’s Day alone this year? Sick of the hype surrounding the day? Well, instead of feeling sorry for yourself, here are some reminders that the day isn’t all that important.

Being single can be great. In fact, we believe that so strongly that we’ve written a whole article on it. You can do whatever you like, eat as much chocolate as you want without having to share, and you don’t have to spend a penny on anyone other than yourself.

Valentine’s Day is a manufactured holiday. You shouldn’t be worrying that you haven’t got a partner to share it with; it’s only become so popular because it creates so much revenue for shops across the country. Most people in relationships feel as though they have to celebrate it because everyone else is, not because it actually means something to them. So, don’t stress about it.

A lot of us are actually single, too. Around this time of the year, it can seem as though you’re the only one who is single. In reality, that’s definitely not the case. According to 2015 statistics, 51% of people in the UK were single. Though this doesn’t include people who aren’t married, and are simply in a relationship, that’s a large proportion of the population. So, you’re certainly not in it alone.

If that hasn’t made you feel any better, remember that all of your favourite chocolate will soon be on sale. And guess what, you don’t have to share it with anybody else. Come on now, what more could you want? There’s nothing worse than someone eating your favourite chocolate out the box, is there?

If all else fails, just head to a bar on Valentine’s Day – chances are, most people in there will be single too. So, you have your pick of all the fitties. Plus, if you decide that you don’t fancy taking it further with anyone, you can go back home or do whatever you want because you have that much freedom!

Remember, it’s just one day. We promise it isn’t that much of a big deal.
