It is February and we all know what that means, Valentines Day is here again. In some circles it is referred to as ‘Singles Awareness Day’. This occasion can be challenging for those without a beau at their side. Valentines Day for singles does not have to be lonely. In fact, this year turn it into a celebration! Learn to love all the many different types of relationships you have. Here are a few ideas that are sure to put a little pep in your step this February.
The very last thing you want to do on this love holiday is stay at home feeling sorry for yourself. This is a moment to celebrate all love, not just the mushy love between a boy and a girl but the love of good friends and positive family.
Decide right now that this love holiday you are going to put a smile on your face and think of all the positive love you have in your life. Rather that wish there was someone there to shower you with kisses and hugs turn to a friend, a neighbor or even a pet and shower them with affection. You will be surprised at how much your will get out of making someone feel extra special.
Plan an evening out with all your best girl friends by booking a room at a fun restaurant ahead of time. Bring party hats and insist everyone be silly and wear them. Laugh and tell stories with all your best girlfriends and you will see how special the love you have with them really is.
Valentines Day for singles with kids can be full of love also. Make this time of year extra special for them by waking up early and making them heart-shaped pink pancakes by adding red-food coloring to the mix. For lunch invite your sister or mom to come over for a special lunch and then together bake heart-shaped sugar cookies. Spending time with her will help you see the love you have right in front of you.
Another idea is for the slightly bolder hearted. Gather your closest girlfriends, dress to the nines and hit the town. Stop off for some dinner and drinks at your favorite restaurant and then head to a dance club for a night of girl bonding that will reinforce your confidence and bond your strong independent selves. Sometimes the most romantic Valentines Day gift suggestion is the gift you give to yourself.
Remember that this time of love is meant for everyone. This does not mean that it is a time for you to think about who you wish you were dating or what you may think is missing in your life. It is a time of love to be celebrated with all your amazing friends and family.
Look outside of yourself and find those singles that may be feeling lonely and invite them out for a Valentines Day for Singles adventure or simply invite them to spend the evening watching a sappy girl movie with you. Bring out the popcorn and milk duds and swoon away. Helping her see that she is surrounded by love will wrap you in love as well.
