Love and Relationships 13 best things about being single on Valentine’s Day


Christmas and New Year’s celebrations have come and
gone, but Valentine’s is still on the way and you DON’T
have to be in a relationship to enjoy it. Here are 13
reasons why.
We are done with the Christmas and New Year’s
celebrations, and the next thing on our minds is
Valentine’s Day.
While some people are eagerly looking forward to the
one-day celebration which has been aptly dubbed
“lovers’ day,” some people however dread it.
This probably because this group of people are afraid
to spend such a lovely day alone, not having a special
somebody to hangout with and show some love.
If you fall into that category, then worry no more. Here
are 13 best reasons why its totally fine to be single on
Valentine’s Day:
1. You don’t have to pretend to like some guy’s silly
drugstore gift: “Wow. This bear wearing a bowtie
and holding a box of chocolates that are probably
from 2012 because most chain stores don’t always
check the expiration dates is for me? Uh, thank
you.” — Girl, you don’t have to be.
2. You’re not squashed into a crowded restaurant: Or
drenched in the romantic desperation of all the
other couples nearby trying to make sure this night
goes perfectly because otherwise they’ll probably
have a huge fight later. Who does that sound fun
3. You’re not squashed into ill-fitting lingerie with
hearts all over it: Even the sexiest actress knows
that totally sucks.
4. There’s no pressure to have amazing sex: When
you’re part of a couple on Valentine’s Day, there’s
this unspoken pressure to go home and have some
kind of Boyz II Men “I’ll Make Love to You” passion-
filled sex for the day to have been considered a
success. When you’re single, even if you just watch
a movie you like and eat popcorn, you’re like, “This
day ruled.”
5. You don’t have to stress about what to get for
someone you’ve been seeing for, like, a month: This
is why most ladies hate meeting anyone they’re
interested in within two months of Valentine’s Day.
6. You don’t have to spend N5000 on a crappy prix-
fixe dinner that wasn’t even that good: There’s
nothing quite like eating a tiny bowl of food
drenched in some weird sauce that, even though it’s
delicious, you still need to eat (real food) right after
because you’re still starving.
7. You can do whatever the heck you want: You’re not
stuck compromising on date-night plans that may or
may not suck because you are the captain of your
own ship.
8. If you go out to a bar, you’re guaranteed that all
the guys there are single: And that’s guaranteed
because even if they had girlfriends, if they’re not
with them on Valentine’s Day, they’re probably
going to know what’s up.
9. You don’t have to share your Valentine’s Day
candy: “Two whole chocolate bars” is the portion
size for one person. One. These are facts.
0. You don’t need to buy overpriced chocolate: And
you of all people benefit from those sweet, sweet
post-Valentine’s Day chocolate discounts.
1. You can bond with your other single friends: It
doesn’t even have to be about romantic love. It can
be about, like, noodles or something. Your shared
love of noodles.
2. No pressure to having an amazing, meaningful,
soul-touching date night: Even the idea of trying to
do this, that makes you both feel like your souls are
truly intertwined just so you can prove how much
you’re connected, should be enough to make you
psyched you’re single.
3. You can do what you really want to do, which is see
Fifty Shades in theaters with your friends: You
know, it opens that night for a reason.
