1) Don’t bother answering someone if they ask you what your plans are today!
Sometimes people just seem to enjoy rubbing your nose into their fortune. It is not that bad. Come on, love is always around the corner, it is just about finding the person who matches well with you and taking things ahead with them.
The market and the society makes a big deal out of it. So what? Don’t participate in their meaningless actions of pushing you down. You know that the best kind of love is not in the one which these companies or the society pushes at you. You are smarter than that!
2) Don’t try to find a partner to fit in!
Don’t bother fitting in on this charade. You are what you are and your relationship status is what it is!
No one has the right to keep bugging you on that. If you are single on valentine’s day – so what? Big deal! It just means that you have different things to do other than falling prey to the stupid marketing gimmicks of the shops.
So, don’t react to the pressure from the society. You don’t have to find someone just to be a part of this so called festival. Just be yourself, be calm and composed with yourself the way you are – love happens the way it is supposed to happen to you. Don’t bother forcing it upon you.
3) Being single doesn’t mean unlovable.
I think this is one of the biggest lies told by the industry! If you are single – it means that there is something wrong with you.
Come on! This is one of the biggest lies ever told. No one cares about that and neither should you!
Being single just means that you are single – Period! And you will find that someone when the time is right, not because it is the 14th of Feb
4) Connect to people you love.
It is a big fat lie that valentines day is about couples. Valentines day is about love. Granted that it talks mostly about couples, but that doesn’t have to be your definition of love.
Love is in the smallest of the things in the world, in the littlest of the gestures. It is not in sitting in a romantic restaurant and ordering the most expensive champagne, nor is it in booking the most expensive room in the hotel.
It is in those gestures which you make to the people who mean a lot to you.
5) Tell your loved ones what they mean to you.
Stop feeling sorry for yourself! Stop feeling sorry for being single.
It is not a crime and for god’s sake stop letting others punish you for this. Pick out a pen and paper and start writing letters to people who really mean a lot to you.
Call your friends, call your family and tell them how they make you feel. Talk to your neighbours, talk to your pets no matter how insane it sounds. You don’t have to be cheesy when you can be classy.
6) Love is not about the big kiss on the valentines day.
Love is in gratitude, the feeling of completion within oneself, the aspiration to share your life with someone else.
There is one person in this world who deserves the most love – it is yourself. Don’t deny yourself the opportunity just because it is valentines day and the companies, hotels make you want to feel single and left out.
You know your life more than anyone else ever will, you know how great you are and the challenges you have gone through.
Pamper yourself! The shops have great discounts on valentines day. You can buy some really good stuff for yourself.
7) Don’t read those cheesy quotes.
For gods sake – don’t read those cheesy quotes. I have come across so many annoying ones about being single on valentines day
– Being single means that you are taking time to decide who you want to spend the rest of your life with
– Being single was never my misfortune, it was my decision!
– Being single isn’t a time to look for love, it is a time to work on yourself and grow as an individual.
– Yes! I am single and I don’t need a significant other to make me happy
– Being single is a good thing – no drama, no heartaches and no headaches.
– Being single is smarter than being in the wrong relationship
– Being single doesn’t mean you are weak, it means that you are strong enough to wait.
I think I can quote a few more such quote which can try to make you feel better, all thanks to google. Or we can simply accept where we are –
If you are single on valentines day- you are single on valentines day. That’s it – so what?! Big deal!
There are lots of amazing single people out there. Don’t let the world into bullying you about its definition of love and relationship.
It is your life, your happiness and your definition of love and it can be anything you want it to be.
So go out and live your life – if the world wants to push you down and prove that you are single – then proudly say that you are single on valentines day and are not bothered by it. Proudly tell yourself and the world that it doesn’t matter what it thinks.
You are single on valentines day and that’s a simple fact, it is not something to feel bad about, it is not even something to think about. You were single on the day before the valentines day as well. Why should this day get a special credit?!
Just go out and live your good life. For every other stupid thing which people say – there is always time 🙂 .
