Why being single on Valentines Day is the best

Tomorrow may be the dedicated to love, partners, and romance all over the world, and I’m not saying the day isn’t a nice opportunity to celebrate this – but I think it’s an equally great time to celbrate if you not  so in love, and here’s why.

Embracing your alone time 

No fighting over what tv channel to watch. No uncomfortable nights pulling the duvet. No arguaments over where to go for dinner. Not having to worry about what your other half wants may sound selfish – but it’s the truth.

Proving patriarchy is long gone

Women (and men) no longer need a partner to prove ourselves. Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to remind yourself of everything that you’ve accomplished on your own; cause you don’t need no man.

Treat yourself

Been eyeing up a pair of shoes for weeks, thinking how pleased you woul be if they landed on your doorstep with a red rose? But it yourself! There’s no point waiting around for someone else – if you want it, you get it (you know you deserve it).

Money money money

The romantic among us may say ‘a price can never be put on love’. Which whole may be true, a price very much can be put on an expensive meal out, 100 red roses, and a new pair of underwear.

The day AFTER Valentine’s Day (hellloooo cheap chocolate)

When it comes down to it, the love and romance will most likely last 1 day at most, and after that things are pretty much ‘back to normal’. So just muster the enjoy roc through those 24hours and it will all be over. Plus, think about all those valentines themed chocolates being reduced, which you can smugly buy knowing those in love had to pay twice as much for.

Whether your spending Valentine’s Day out with your boyfriend, having a Netflix and chill with your girlfriend, or chilling with your friends and family, I hope you tomorrow as the time to think about who your with now, and who you want to be with later – with no one at all being a perfectly acceptable answer as well.
