Single On Valentines Day?

By February 10, 2014

Follow me on:

How important is Valentine's Day to you? The answer to that might determine if you're morose about being alone or happy about celebrating Valentine's Day single.

But what if instead, those who are still single/single again amongst us, decided to claim Valentine's Day as our own? As a day to celebrate love in all of its forms, including most importantly the ability to love oneself - no matter how we feel about February 14th?

So say instead of looking at the cheap Valentine's Day ideas that I've written from the perspective as a person part of a couple, you look at the suggestions instead as a single person pampering themselves like no one else can. Maybe all you want to do is curl up with a good book and a mug of cold beer - why not take advantage, avoid the Valentine's Day crowd, and plan for it? Or maybe being social is more your thing - so why not throw a Valentine's Day costume party for all of your single friends?

Are you single this Valentine's Day? What do you plan on doing, if anything? When single, do you celebrate St. Valentine's Day? To choose an answer, click on the appropriate link, or if you feel I've missed something please feel free to share your comments.

Without trying to get too philosophical here, I’ve been pondering on the question: Why do we seek love? And I’ve figured, it’s just a trick. A trick for the propagation of the human species (after all, we’re just like the animals!!). It’s a very good way for us to uphold the will to live and eventually yield offspring.

Albeit a very good trick, we’re all spellbound. I say to all the singles out there: never give up, always persist. Don’t hide out this Valentines Day, get out there and mingle. Negative thinking will get you nowhere and more than likely repel potential partners, whereas positive, reinforced thinking will more than likely attract a potential partner.

So get out there!!!

I’m going to be single this Valentine’s Day and whilst I wish I did have a special someone to share it with, I’m not going to beat myself up because I don’t.

I’m quite glad it’s a Monday, when I probably wouldn’t be going out anyway, but am deliberating over asking one of my two single girlfriends if she wants to go for a couple of drinks. Any guys out with their mates on Valentine’s Day have got to be single (or about to be) right?

I am married to the love of my life & I still HATE Valentine’s Day. Why? It’s too much pressure! I agree with Bonny again! Love for yourself-that’s what you need, what I need, what we all need.

I am making myself a delicious dinner, and lighting some candles-I deserve it! I am putting on my favorite music. And lastly, I am going to have a piece of chocolate!

I am going to do that because I will be alone too. The love of my life has to work in one of those busy restaurants tonight.

Being single isn’t so bad – I’m going to the library, and it will be a great day of studying for me. The day of love… of knowledge.

I’m really lost at on how to express my feelings to a friend….. I have always liked her since we first met. She is a good friend of my brother from college. My brother and our friends from college know I’ve had this big crush on her since then. So forward 7+ years to today.. My brother, her, and I are now roommates. We became roommates because my brother and I both got hired by the same company and were looking for place close to work. She happen to be looking to move out of her last apartment. She has boyfriend who lives about 3 1/2 hrs away. They have been dating for awhile now. I know she has a hint I like her a lot. So hear I am stuck on not trying to break up her current relationship and hoping not to lose our friendship if I say how I truly feel about her. Help??
