Binge watching can be a fantastic way to take your mind off things, particularly if you’re among those who would prefer to be partnered. For women, shows like Gilmore Girls, Will & Grace, The Golden Girls, and Sex and the City might just do the trick. Looking for something edgier? Orange is the New Black might be right up your alley.
You know better than anyone else what type of gifts you prefer, so who better than you to choose the perfect, calorie-free Valentine’s treat? A custom name necklace is a fantastic way to add a touch of style to your wardrobe, plus it celebrates someone special – you! What if you’re already rocking the classic Carrie necklace and want something different? There are lots of exciting personalized jewelry options to choose from.
Call it “Valentine’s day for singles night” or “anti-Valentine’s day.” Whatever you do, have a great time enjoying dinner, drinks, and plenty of laughs. Decorate, enjoy your favorite music, watch movies, or play board games while celebrating your collective singleness.
You might have been planning to take a break from Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram anyway, and if you’re single, Valentine’s day is the perfect time to act on those plans. Avoiding social media will prevent you from seeing all those lovey-dovey posts that make you feel sad, annoyed, or even inadequate. So, have fun today, but without your favorite device in notify mode. Go shopping, take a walk in nature, or spend time visiting someone you haven’t seen in a while. You might find that you enjoy this and want to make it a habit.
However you celebrate and whatever you do, keep in mind that as a single person, you are in complete control of every aspect of your life. No one is pestering you or making demands. These things can happen in any relationship, of course, but they tend to be more frequent in unhealthy unions. So celebrate the time you have to yourself, whether you prefer it this way or not. There’s so much more to life than love relationships. Focus on the many benefits you enjoy and remember - it’s up to you to savor and celebrate each moment.
