Valentine’s day… Don’t you think it’s overrated??!
Even though couples who genuinely love each other makes me happy about this day of celebration, couples who ‘announce’ their love and share their ‘private’ pictures on social media with mushy mushy hash tags make me feel annoyed about this day.
I know how it feels to be single on this day. All thanks to couples who are ‘desperate’ to prove to the world that they are ‘madly’ in love. All I understand out of their effort is ‘madly’.
Even I used to feel bad few years ago that I don’t have one to make my day ‘special’, I’m sure most of the gals go through this phase. Especially those who stay away from home, whose roommates leave them alone as they have to be with their #sweetheart. Now that I’m out of it, thought sharing my views about this much hyped day.
I bet – open your Facebook and Instagram page on valentine’s day. Most of the account’s display picture will have two members. I mean with their #soulmate. Guys, it’s your own social media account, not any joint account that it requires both of your pictures.
Then comes the flood of hash tags. #besthubby #bestwifey phewww I’m sure most of them must be silently crying inside for being with their #mineforever
So in one statement – Not everyone who is single is lonely… Not everyone who is taken is in love…
If you are a happy single like me… Cheers to that happiness and freedom…
So, happy singles, if you are still figuring out how to skip this day comfortably, here are some ideas to make ‘the day of love’ even more comfortable…
You know what’s the best part of gifting your own self??? You don’t have to spend time thinking what to gift… Whether they will like it or not… 🤔 what if they don’t… Blah and blah and blah..
You know what you want. Let me make it even more easier. Open online shopping sites. Open your wish list. Pick a random item and buy it. Because darling, you are totally worth it.
Have any single friend???
Nothing more fun than two friends bit*hing and Making fun of those social media couples with tons of cozy pictures and cheesy quotes. Come on I’m not being mean here. They chose to post their pictures on public forums and we chose to ‘comment’.
PS: This one of my favorite scenes from my most favorite series F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
Spend the day with the one who loves you
Even if a person is a criminal, I’m sure there will be at least one person who loves him genuinely. His mom. Not everyone of us have these precious persons in our lives – parents and siblings. If you have one don’t forget to make them feel special. It’s time to admire the beauty of love they share.
Spend the day with furry friends
I feel peaceful when I’m with animals. They are a great example for true love. Spend your time with them.
If you are not an animal lover, it’s time to interact with one.
Oh come on, I’m sick of listening to people giving excuses like – when I was a kid, a dog had bit me, a cat had scratched me. Hello, even when I’m an adult, people hurt me. Shouldn’t I be scared of people??? Well according to your logic yes but Im not.
Animals do those things as their self protection not because they want to hurt you. Spend time gaining their trust and love. Dude, once you earn it, the validity lasts till the lifetime. Unlike some humans.
Spread love to those who are in need
There are so many people out there who need love and care.
Didn’t get it??? I’m talking about orphans who never got a chance to feel the love of a family.
I’m talking about old age home. Old parents who spent their lives loving their children. But unfortunately who abandoned them.
Go their. Spend some time. Your presence will be a biggest present for them. Most importantly you will feel proud for being a great human.
Most of the men think that we gals dress up for them. Sorry… We dress up because we like it. We don’t spend our time getting ready to impress a guy who can’t even differentiate between a baby pink and dark pink.
Dress up. Wear that favorite dress of yours. Experiment with makeup. Enjoy yourself.
Take yourself to a movie or a dinner date
Who said only ‘happy’ couples can make singles jealous. Time to make them jealous.
Dress up (or don’t to make even more fun. Gals who spent ages to get dressed up should think ‘she is so careless. I miss those days of being single’. Haha) take yourself out for a movie or for a dinner. I’m sure there will lot of couples out their giggling. Be happy and confident. Show them what being a happy and independent singles is all about. Trust me, many of the gals will feel jealous of you. Haha
Eat, Sleep and Repeat
Honey there are so many perks of being single. First and foremost – Freedom. Freedom to be your own self, freedom to eat what you want because you don’t have to look hot and perfect for your guy, freedom to sleep because you don’t have to be on call all the time. Ugh no matter how beautiful or boring the conversation might be, I can’t compromise with my sleep. Can you??! If you agree with me celebrate the freedom on this day. It’s worth celebrating.
Instead of waiting for that perfect someone to come and make you happy, do what makes YOU perfectly happy…!!!
Happy Valentine’s day gal…!!!
