Valentine’s Day is the day of love. Too bad this Valentine’s Day, I’ll be embracing how single I am, just like I do every other year. I’ve come to the conclusion that I always feel the same way towards Valentine’s Day. Being single on Valentine’s Day actually sucks, and this is my timeline of thoughts on Valentine’s Day.
Beginning of February
Oh look, Valentine’s Day candy. It seems like it was just Christmas. Maybe I should buy some of conversation hearts to have at home.
Week Before Valentine’s Day
Maybe someone will surprise me this year with flowers or something. There has to be someone out there who is dying to confess their love to me.
Day Before Valentine’s Day
Well, nobody has confessed their love to me yet. Looks like it will be another year of me being single on Valentine’s Day.
10 a.m. on Valentine’s Day
*receives text from mom* Oh, thanks mom. Love you too.
Everyone you know seems to be in a relationship. You begin to wonder, “Am I forever alone?” Fear not my super sexy, independent lady! There’s no rush to find that cute significant other. You should feel great being single because here are the benefits:
10. You can focus on yourself.
You don’t have to worry about anyone else BUT yourself. Enjoy this feeling while you still have it.
9. You save some “moolah baby.”
Being single means you don’t have to worry about buying something for your significant other when it comes to anniversaries and birthday’s, because that relationship is non-existent! You can save your money and spend it the way you want to.
8. You are able to go out and have fun!
No boyfriend/girlfriend? No problem! You are completely free from the “guilt” feeling.
7. No “Checking in.”
Wow. How annoying must that be? Just think about it…”Hey, how’s the night out?” “What time are you going to be back?” “Where are you?” “What are you doing?” “Who are you with?” No, thank you.
6. You can be flirtacious without feeling guilty.
You are a free woman. I repeat: A FREE WOMAN. Go flirt with whoever you want! Heck, you can even flirt with a tree. You’ll be gucci sweetie because there is no guy or girl holding you back.
It’s hard being single when people are constantly killing your vibe by degrading you for BEING SINGLE. Whether you’re single by choice or not, here’s the things you might be tired of hearing:
18. “How are you single? You’re so pretty.”
17. “Aren’t you afraid to die alone?”
16. “Stop being so picky, that’s your problem.”
15. “Oh my gosh, do you want me to hook you up?”
14. “You never like anybody.”
13. “Don’t go looking for love. Love will find a way.”
