A Single Person’s Guide to Loving Valentine’s

Valentine’s season is not just for couples – it’s also for YOU.

Many people loathe the thought of being alone during Valentine’s day. Feeling like every couple in the world exists to slap the reality that you are single in your face is common among most people. During the month of February, love is everywhere – in shopping malls, social media, and even on the streets. It’s understandable how difficult it is to be single. But, do you know that being single during the season of romance is not really a terrible, terrible thing? 

You may feel alone but in reality, you’re not. If you think about it, you’re not the last single person in the universe. Consider yourself lucky as well that you exist in a generation that encourages self-love. Being single during Valentine’s day can actually be a great thing – if you shift your perspective and celebrate the wonderful you. And Fuzzable is here to help you do just that.

Following the right mindset and practicing a healthy activity will surely help you celebrate the couple’s season with only yourself.

Here are three important guidelines you should follow in order to love Valentine’s day as a single person:

Embrace your singleness

Think about it, there are lots of perks to being single! You get to decide what channel to watch on TV, you can leave your bedroom as messy or as clean as to how you want it to be – you get to choose how you want to live your life. You have more free time and fewer responsibilities for yourself. Being in a relationship is not only fun and games, but it also gives you responsibilities for your partner. And this Valentine’s day, you don’t have to worry about any of those.

Treat yourself

Craving for those heart-shaped chocolates? Need a teddy bear to cuddle with? Want those flowers in your vase? Here’s a reminder for you: no one’s stopping you to buy that for yourself! You deserve all those gifts. Remember, you’re also in a relationship with yourself. Treat yourself just like how would you treat a loved one. And while we’re at the subject of treating yourself, Fuzzable’s tip for you is to go big. Watch a movie, buy a fancy dinner, or treat yourself to a spa day!

Spend your day with those you love

Whether these are your family, your friends, or your pets, celebrate your Valentine’s day with them. They are the ones who never left your side, and they also deserve to feel loved. Giving them Valentine’s day gifts is surely a nice gesture to show them how much you appreciate them. In turn, celebrating the season of love with them will make you feel less alone in the world full of couples as well.

Being single is not a crime. It’s a choice and there might come a day, if you plan to commit yourself to relationships when you too will follow the lovely rituals of romance with your partner. Utilize this time in learning about yourself and this might help you learn how would you like your own love life to be and work for it. Embrace your singledom!
