February - the month that has Valentine's Day in it. Yep. The month I've always spent accepting the fact that I'm alone and will spend the 14th like any other day, while other adorable couples go on cute dates and do whatever else cute couples do.
But you know what? Fuck it. A lot of the time, Valentine's Day is basically a day that makes every single person feel bad. Apparently some people even throw anti-Valentine's Day parties?
Valentine's Day is about love. While many of us hope to find that one person with whom we can completely be ourselves, it's also okay to be single. So let's spend Valentine's Day loving ourselves instead of feeling bad about the fact that we aren't cuddled up on the couch with a significant other, watching some rom com with a freshly-gifted bouquet of roses on the counter and a box of artisan chocolates in our laps. Who says you need someone else to do all of those things?
Treat yo self.
Buy yourself a bouquet of flowers. Seriously, it's amazing what some fresh blooms can do to brighten up your day. Go to your favorite cupcake shop and buy that red velvet cupcake you've been denying yourself in the name of New Years resolutions. Put on your favorite movie and buy yourself some lingere that makes you feel sexy. Order takeout from your favorite restaurant. Postmates is a beautiful thing, my friends.
