SINGLES AWARENESS DAYThursday, February 12, 2015
So if you’re single just as I am you shouldn’t spend Valentine’s day under a blanket crying and feeling underrated just because you don’t have a date for the biggest holiday of love. You have the right to make some plans on Valentine’s day too. And this is exactly what you are going to do ! As long as you don’t cry, everything is ok ! Statistics shows there is around 35 % women spending Valentine’s day alone…just sayin’! Here I wrote down 5 things you can do if you’re single and gorgeous on Valentine’s Day.
I. GRAB A GIRL
I’m pretty sure you have at least one female friend that is still single and depressed just as you are. You can plan a whole day or evening and pretty much have a date just like any other “real” couple do. Go in the fancy restaurant and have a lovely dinner, visit cinema or theater, go shopping, cook together… I just realized there is more fun things to do with your female friend than with a boyfriend because simply there is no pressure and you can just have fun together.
II. MOVIE MARATHON
If you are emotional type of a girl, I wouldn’t recommend you this one because once again, you shouldn’t spend your night crying. If you ask me, I would totally go for it and choose rom com kind of night but sometimes it’s better if you have a different variety of movies. Here is the list of movies I would choose:
- Mamma Mia ! – it’s my ultimate favorite movie and I could watch it every day. It’s all about singing and dancing next to it.
- Valentine’s Day – Well title says it all. Also a bunch of hot actors and actresses !
- The Proposal – ok can you go wrong with Ryan and Sandra ? I don’t think so ! Cute and super funny romantic movie.
- What Happens in Vegas – totally fun movie with a bit of a romance in it. Stay away from it if you recently got divorced.
- Eat, Pray, Love – this movie will inspire you as nothing else before.If you’re feeling down, you should watch it to help you see through the darkness and to realize you have to move forward because world is waiting for you to explore it. Explore love, explore life and explore happiness.
III. SPA TIME
You can visit a spa or you can save some money and create a whole treatment at home. It’s winter and in single girls vocabulary that means no shaving. There is a huge chance someone could mistake us for bears but we don’t really care as long as we don’t go on a date with the guy we’re actually attracted to. Well honey, now it’s time to shave your entire body, make yourself a bath, create your own peeling and use it on body and face, paint your nails, wash your hair… Be a lady, you deserve that !
Oh my favorite thing to do! I believe it's the best kind of rehab for any kind of heartache. Take a day off and plan it just for shopping. Have fun with it. It should be a shopping with no strings attached, so no obligations or expectations. Try on all the cutest dresses and just enjoy in it. I always take photos of my favorite items in the changing room and send them to my friends. On the end don't forget to buy yourself a treat and visit the cutest pastry shop for a bit of a guilty pleasure. You're single girl ! Enjoy in the fact you have saved yourself money by not buying totally overrated teddy bears and actually having money to spend on the gorgeous bag you saw in the shop window.
V. SHOP YOUR CLOSET
Clean your whole room and give an extra attention to your closet. Take all items out, dress up and act like your whole room is your runway. By mixing up your stuff you'll be able to find items you had at the back of your closet and completely forgot on. Try to create completely new combinations and just have fun with it. Go through everything and make 3 simple sections, 1. keep, 2. donate, 3. trash. Better to have less clothes that actually fits you than having a bunch of shit you hate.
You can even download some cool "virtual closet app" which offers you to save all your items in and create outfits even if you're on the other side of a country. I'm pretty sure you remember the scene from a movie Clueless when Cher had the best closet ever and the moment we all realized that closet is the love of our life's. Now you can have it too. A bit different but still worth a shot.
