Here we are again in February which means one thing; we are coming to that special day of the year where the whole world celebrates love or so we are told to. Valentine’s day approaches and whether you love it or hate it, you can’t avoid it. So, if you are like me, you will find yourself in the percentage of the population that will be spending this Valentine’s day alone.

However, it’s not all doom and gloom. Being single on Valentine’s day can have many positives. So here are some things to keep in mind this coming Valentine’s day.

1. You do not need another person to feel complete.

It is okay ok to be single and it is even more ok to be happily single. Have a night in, treat yourself, do whatever makes you happy.

2. Use this as an opportunity.

Use this day as a chance to meet with your friends that you don’t usually get to see. Have fun! Throw a singles party, celebrate being alive and happy. Is there anything better then singing in the car with all your friends?! Not really!! Laugh till you cry.

3. You can buy yourself a present.

You don’t need someone to buy you chocolate or flowers. You don’t even need a reason to buy yourself a gift. You work hard and deserve to be spoiled. Why not try Thorntons for some chocolate or Interflora for some flowers. Or go all out and buy yourself some jewellery from Pandora. Treat yo'self!

4. Your bank account is looking healthier than those in relationships.

As a singleton, you don’t have to buy expensive gifts or pay for restaurant meals or date activities. Smile as you think of all the money you are saving.

5. You don’t need to plan.

You do not need to plan or organise a date or a gift for your significant other cause you don’t have one. So, enjoy a stress-free day! Take a nice bubble bath maybe even add in a LUSH bubble bar. Relax!

6. You don’t even need to leave the house.

Stay home, lounge about. Bury yourself in a blanket and surround yourself with your favourite food and drinks.

7. You don’t even need to worry about dressing up.

Another great point is that you don’t need to dress up. In fact, you don’t even need to get changed at all! Pyjama Party!

8. Lastly, but the clearly most important point…. You can buy discounted chocolate the day after valentine’s day.

So, it is the day after valentine’s day, the shops are filled with left over chocolate and sweets. They are discounted and deserted but this is your time to shine. Grab as much as you can fit in your trolley and run to that checkout. Get home and get binge watching your favourite series on Netflix. Don’t be sad your friends are celebrating valentine’s day because let’s be honest who’s the real winner here, I think we know who!!

9. Seriously though, it is ok to be single. It ok to focus on yourself. Be in love with who you are, enjoy getting to know yourself and be in love with your life. Find fulfilment in your family, friends and career.

10. Your time will come but for now you’ve got a hot date with two men one is called Ben and the other Jerry!!!!!!
