Hey guys, I’m Itxy, and today we’re talking about how you can still have a good Valentine’s Day even though you’re single.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to tell you to get out there and meet someone or to celebrate today with some friends.
We all know that Valentine’s Day is a day celebrated by couples. It’s a day where we celebrate romantic love.
But, if you’re single, then screw that. Valentine’s day is a day where one celebrates love in general, so who’s to say that you can’t celebrate the love that you have for yourself?
So, I’m going to give you 4 ways that you can have a good Valentine’s Day while being single.
1. TAKE 5 MINUTES TO THINK ABOUT ALL OF THE GOOD THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF
Seriously! Just lay in bed and for 5 minutes think about all the qualities that make you amazing.
There’s no shame in loving you, so take the time to celebrate yourself.
2. DO SOMETHING YOU LOVE BUT HAVEN’T DONE IN A WHILE
This could be something like reading a fiction book that you’ve been wanting to read, or going to take picture, or practicing an instrument, or getting a massage!
Whatever it maybe, take at least 1 hour to do it today. Something that’ll make you just as happy as if you were on a date . . . or at least almost as happy.
3. WRITE YOURSELF A LOVE LETTER
Talk about how proud you are of yourself for overcoming certain things. Talk about some of the troubles you’ve had but how you were able to get through them. Then, talk about how much you love yourself—about this quality, and that one, too.
So, praise yourself in that letter, then hide it somewhere! Put it somewhere you’ll remember, and make an event on your Google Calendar for February 14, 2023–5 years from now. You can pick up that letter then and see how much you’ve changed and improved.
Maybe on that day—February 14, 2023–you’re going through something difficult, and you read this letter and you think, I was able to get through that, so maybe I can get through this.
Don’t forget to write down where you’re going to hide the letter in the notes section when you make the event.
Just praise yourself! Don’t be ashamed to do it.
4. TAKE YOURSELF OUT ON A DATE
Go to your favorite restaurant by yourself, or if you’re more comfortable with this, order take out or buy some pizza, and then watch a movie.
Buy yourself ice cream or chocolate—or whatever other sweets you like—and treat yourself!
And don’t watch a chick flick or a romance movie or anything that’ll bring you down. Watch something like X-Men or It or anything, and enjoy it!
Those are 4 ways that you can celebrate today and still have a good time even though you’re single.
That’s the end of this! Let me know in the comments below which of these you’ll be doing today, unashamedly.
