The Keys to Surviving Valentine’s Day When You’re Single
If you’re in a relationship, Valentine’s Day is pretty easy (well, for the most part!). However, if you’re single, it can be a pretty tough day, especially if you work in an office full of married or committed people. The women in the office who have a man who care about them will get flowers delivered, maybe a heart-shaped box full of chocolates or just something special. But if you’re single, it can make you feel pretty depressed or not feel good about yourself.
The pressure of the holiday, which was created by the card, candy and flower companies in my opinion, can be overwhelming for some especially if single or newly single. I ran across some great tips that can help you keep your mind off romance on the day of love.
You don’t need a date. If you have found yourself dateless on Valentine’s Day, it’s not the end of the world (as recently proven by the Mayan calendar!). In most cases you’re probably better off spending the day by yourself than be with someone whom you don’t really care about.
Plan a girls’ night out. Having your girlfriends around can do a lot for your spirit and your confidence too. Plan a night out on the town with them and even if you all decided to rebel against Valentine’s Day, you can wear that little black dress and possibly catch some eyes while out on the town too!
Digital dating is the game. Now if your just determined to find love before Valentine’s Day, you might want to try one of the many online dating service that are available these days. But beware though, don’t give up too much personal information when chatting and first meeting up. Still have your guard up!
Hire a secret admirer. It’s just an idea I thought of, send yourself flowers or candy from a delivery company and have them come from an anonymous person and then you’ll have the ladies in the office wondering who it could be, but it’ll be your little secret!
