Some single ladies dread this day, and well, some don’t bat an eyelash. And if you’re like me, you have a love/hate relationship with it. It’s a day where most single women are forced to take inventory of the quality and volume of love in their lives. They say “nothing is worse than being single on Valentine’s Day.” Don’t fall victim to that! I did when I was a kid, because no one told me not to. Until I realized what life was all about, I expected grand gestures (that I never received) and was in turn, filled with disappointment and sadness. I look back to those young adolescent years and laugh. Today is just another day and another opportunity to express your care for another person, or for YOURSELF. As a gentle reminder, today should not be the only day to express your love or admiration for you or for someone else. Personally, if the entire year isn’t filled with romantic gestures (from me and him), we’re not meant to be!
There’s been lots of advice thrown around on how to help single women “get through the day”…and because we should all be filled with laughter, I’ve rounded up the best and worst advice I’ve heard. I’ll start by saying, there are also single men too.
