Now put your hands up

What’s your reason for being alone this Valentine’s Day? Was it by choice? Did you get your heart broken? Someone jilted on you, or was it you who broke someone’s heart? Or maybe it’s the classic no boyfriend since birth kind of thing?

Whatever your reason is, being alone seems like a crazy idea this big V Day while being single is such a pathetic thing. (Oh, come on! Don’t try to deny it to me, once or twice, you feel pathetic for being single this love month – I do too, no biggie)

Moreover, what’s so hateful about this day is that being single is like committing a crime, your attached friends will try to set you up on a blind date, your family (your mom, your aunt’s and your sister in particular) will introduced you to this guy, your sister’s colleague, her boyfriend’s friend, one of the many son, nephew, godchild of your aunt or your mother’s friend etc.

For me it’s like testing my patience and sometimes a hassle. I am not in a rush to date, or to fall in love again. But being alone and doing nothing like it’s just a regular day on the calendar is just unacceptable. So I listed down some things you can do alone or with your single friends on Valentine’s Day.

1. Browse some dating apps: Cheapest and easiest way to pass some hours during the V Day. Swipe right if he/she caught your attention, swipe left for those who didn’t get you curious, shake here and there to find someone near your place, etc.

You can choose which one to join among the hundreds of dating apps available for android and iPhone users. There is Tinder, Hinge, Coffee Meets Bagel, OkCupid etc and oh! Did you know that there are dating apps that caters solely to the LGBT community? Remember to add on your best picture, who knows, maybe your soul mate is on that other line. Don’t tell me you don’t own a smartphone? Who in this generation doesn’t have a smartphone?

2. Join a Speed Dating Event: A little taboo and out of fashion but hey it’s fun, you’ll get to know lots of people, you get to practice your social skills, dress up (one speed dating event I participated had a theme) make new friends or meet a possible love interest, not bad right?

3. Make it a Family Affair: What’s so bad about spending your Valentine’s Day with your family? My dad works out of the country so we (me and my siblings) make it a point to celebrate Valentine’s Day with our mom. Treat her out to lunch or dinner, give her flowers, an out of town trip, or a shopping spree is not a bad idea.

4. Singles Party: Gather up your single friends or better yet invite all the singles in town and party. Not sure if you can be a good host? RSVP yes to an invitation or better yet, crash someone else’s party. Good food, good music and a couple glasses of booze and it’s a night of fun.

5. Me time: Indulge yourself, be it a lavish mani-pedi, body scrub, massage kind of activity or the shop till you drop kind of thing, or just go home early, binge on good food, good wine and an even better movie, a good rest, a long nap and you’ll be surprised how blooming and radiant you’ll be the next day, so go on, spend the day loving yourself.

Food For Your Thoughts: 
Don't worry if your single, 
God is looking at you right now saying, 
"I am saving this girl for someone special"
