Valentine's Day can be both great and depressing whether you are single or in a relationship. In both cases, no one should spend their February 14th alone. As a longtime happy and healthy single girl, I think that Valentine's Day has become over time, a more commercial business than a special day in which love is celebrated. It became a sort of low-key and cliché, because people would nowadays get flowers, chocolate, have dinner, or get their lover a luxury item. I've always spent Valentine's Day alone, or with my sister, so I know what's it like when you have no lover to celebrate it with.
Hey girl, you know what? It's totally okay because with the tips I'm about to give you, you're going to spend a great time !
MAKE IT SOUND AS A TYPICAL DAY
Of course, you will be remembered about what day it is, thanks to the pretty sales posters on shops, thanks to your friends' Instagram stories about how great their day is going...but stay focused and do what you're used to doing on a basic day. Go to work, interact with your colleagues, go to the gym, keep yourself busy.
You might not be in a real relationship, but you're actually in a relationship with yourself in all matters. There's no one there to take care of you, so treat yourself. Take your day off, and go to the spa, have a facial, cook your favorite meals or desserts. Muggle yourself in a hot bubble bath with Epsom salt, a glass of wine and a good old book. Offer yourself flowers if you really want to stick to the clichés.
GO OUT WITH YOUR SINGLE FRIENDS
Same as making it a typical day, going out and hanging with your friends will help you forget about your status. Dress and pamper yourself as if you were about to meet your soul mate, and go party. If you want to add some spice to your evening, wear red lipstick and spray your body with Poison Girl by Dior. Trust me, hanging out with your friends will make you feel all the love you need on this day because friends are the only persons out of your family who can show you real love.
