Ooh I love any celebration day! Tick-tock, few hours until date night times for couples.
How long has it been? 6 consecutive years without a date on Valentine’s Day. That’s a quarter of my life, mind you.
How would I feel getting through them all as a romantic? I used to feel pretty miserable but not now. Let me share some ways to fully enjoy this day without straying away from its meaning.
1.Expressing love to family and friends
I once gave them all chocolates and wish a happy Valentine’s Day, just so they won’t feel left out during this festive day. Or bring them all to eat out together, spending some quality time.
or just have casual night out with the girls
2. Pamper yourself = Love yourself
If you have a period when you’re away from all family and old friends like me, it’s time to invest this day for yourself. Have a nice long bath and soak up the warmth.
Add a bath bomb to make it fun!
Pour yourself some wine for Valentine’s day treat.
3. Submerge in your hobby
For me, it means cooking fancy stuff. I did love to cook for every celebration, I think good food is the key to enjoy everything. What’s yours?
4. Stay away from social media
Social media are tools to show people’s highlight reel and Valentine’s Day celebration is usually one of them. Thus if you can’t stand watching them without being jealous, just shut all media down and save yourself unnecessary negative emotion. Focus on what you can do by yourself on this beautiful day.
There you go.
What would I choose to do this year? *mind wandering off 7,600 miles away*
So what would YOU do on this Valentine’s Day without a date?
Wish you a happy Valentine’s Day anyway!
