2018 is the year of the woman. There is absolutely nothing amiss with being single; it merely demonstrates you respect yourself enough to sleep alone until you find the right man. Valentine’s Day is about love – meaning it’s not just a day to celebrate being one half of a couple, it’s a day to love thyself!
Love Thyself: The Single Girl’s Guide to Valentine’s Day
If you’re recently single, Valentine’s Day can be painful. However, it should serve as an essential reminder it’s better to be alone than with the wrong person.
2018 is all about unashamed self-love – what better time to ritualize this than on Valentine’s Day?
#1 Host a dinner party.
Organize dinner and wine with your most fabulous single girlfriends. Ask everyone to bring a dish and a bottle for minimal hassle.
#2 Give yourself the gift of love.
Do something today that makes you happy. Buy the shoes you’ve had your eye on, send chocolates to yourself or treat yourself to a spa day or dinner. It’s time to love thyself!
#3 Do not, I repeat, DO NOT text your ex!
You split up for a reason. Don’t go back to him for attention just because you’re feeling lonely. Onwards and upwards. If they cared for you, they would have fought to keep you in their life and would have tried everything in their power to secure you as their Valentine’s Day date in advance.
#4 Plan your evening YOUR way.
Cook or order your favorite food, pour a glass of wine, choose a few movies or binge watch your favorite TV show. End the perfect evening with a luxurious candlelit bath, face mask and pamper session.
