Anti-Valentine’s day

Valentine’s Day, is the day of love, the day to celebrate the love you feel for your significant other. Now I always found this day to be rather strange. You have all these days to celebrate love. I can’t imagine why you need one day, to be nice and spend a lovely time together. It feels very forced. The things you do on Valentine’s you can do every other day. Now I might just be salty because I am single on Valentine’s Day. There is no denying that I might feel very differently if I had a partner. When I saw I was going to put a blog online on Valentine’s day I knew I needed to do something different from everyone else. I am single on V-day and you might be too. And I am here to tell you that we can still celebrate.

The thing is a couple of years ago a friend and I made up anti-Valentine’s day. We had wine and tiramisu. We went out and danced the night away. For me personally, it was one of the best Valentine’s days I had had in a long time. For people with no partner, Valentine’s Day is just a day. That’s what everyone says right? But it really isn’t. All love declarations and other stuff are thrown on social media and in stores there isn’t running away from it, it follows you everywhere. And that isn’t fun. Expect if you look in your bank account and release that this day doesn’t affect that number whatsoever (winning for sure!)

Valentine’s Day is a day of love so I was thinking. If you don’t have a significant other to love, go on and give yourself some love. Most people don’t do that enough anyway. So I made you a list of things to do on Valentine’s Day. You can do it alone or with a friend.

Pamper yourself
Have a full pamper night, wash your hair, shave, put on pretty or comfy pj’s, and put a mask on. Anything that makes you happy. Read a book, watch a TV show. Whatever it is, make sure it makes you happy.

Put on candles
Candles are ridiculously romantic. Now you might be single but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy romance. The same goes for pretty underwear, just because no one might see it doesn’t mean you don’t deserve the romantic vibes.

Give yourself a compliment
People don’t give themselves enough compliments or credit. Give yourself a compliment. Be nice to yourself. You really deserve it.

Get yourself a gift
If you can afford it. I would totally recommend giving yourself a gift, making yourself feel special because you are. I for example ordered shoes that are going to arrive today which is super exciting.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what you do. I for example am going to go to the gym, do some homework (a necessary evil), wait for my shoes, and have a pamper night. Valentine’s Day is just a day and it will be over tomorrow. And on the upside at least you didn’t spend a ton of money on your significant other.


How are you spending Valentine’s day?

 Lots of love,
