Valentine's Day Do's For Singles

Bookmark and Share

ere you are, single as can be, not looking forward to Valentine's Day. You have come across articles advising you what not to do, with the hope that you won't feel worse. However, reading a list of don'ts may make you feel like you're excluded from yet another thing. After all, it's bad enough that you don't have a significant other on a day that seems prejudicial against singles. Now some author wants you to find out what else you can't do this day?
No need to fret. Valentine's Day might seem friendly to couples only, but you don't have to be left out. There are things that you can do as a single man or woman to celebrate the spirit of the day.
1. Believe that you are lovable.
Just because you have nothing special planned for the day does not mean that you are not special. Just because you don't have a significant other does not mean that you are unlovable. You are indeed lovable, no matter what your current status is.
2. Help yourself believe that #1 is true.
You may feel unsure about this next step, but give it a shot anyway. Every time you look at yourself in the mirror, say earnestly, "I am attractive. I am desirable. I am lovable." You may feel awkward initially, but as you keep repeating the exercise, you will find that the words eventually sink in.
3. Appreciate what you do have.
Even though you may be currently partner-less, chances are, you still have other things (or people) to be thankful for. So, count your blessings! Whip out a list of things in your life that do matter, such as your health, family, job, crazy best friend, old roommate. After you have completed your list, read it over and be thankful for every item.
4. Show your support for those who are in a relationship.
If you do this, regardless of what you feel inside, you are effectively investing in an opportunity to allow others to be happy for your happiness in the future. So go ahead, help your co-worker figure out the most romantic restaurant to take his fiancée to. Be genuinely enthusiastic for that neighbour whose online dating account finally paid off. Be happy as your love struck friends go out on a date. Keep yourself cheerful and supportive of others. The time for you to celebrate with your own special someone will eventually come!
