Because not everyone can always be satisfied

10 Things To Do When You're Single on Valentine's Day

Let's face it, being single on Valentine's Day is kind of terrible. Love is all around, but who is going to shower you with chocolates and teddy bears bigger than Trump's ego? I hope that the people who, like myself, find themesleves in this unfortunate circumstance can get a laugh out of this. Enjoy!

1) You can order 20 boneless chicken wings and eat them all.

While other people have burning holes of love in their hearts, you can have a burning hole of buffalo sauce in your stomach. While the breakup with this unfortunate circumstance will burn other parts of your body later on, at that moment, you can feel full, like people feel full of love. This time, however, in the literal sense.

2) You can have yourself a merry little Galentine's Day

In the wise words of American icon Leslie Knope, Galentine's Day is "only the best day of the year." Get your girls together, gather at your favorite restaurant, and exchange gifts that are very corny. (To play on this, you could even offer actual ears of corn. #bestiegoals)

3) You can sit and watch a favorite movie

There are no rules as to what movies you can watch, only the ones that you can't. Included on the list of Stay The Hell Away are Beaches, The Way We Were, and The Notebook.

4) You can go spy on happy couples and wish you were them

Wanna play stalker for the night? Want to go all out and watch happy people live happily so that you can live in denial? No problem, just go to your local Olive Garden and sit in the parking lot. You'll find lots of couples that won't suspect that kind of behavior AT ALL.

5) You can eat sour candy.

Like myself, sour candy represents just how bitter I am on this day. Sucking a lemon also works, but that will rip your stomach up way more than the candy.

6) You can think of things you would rather do than celebrate Valentine's Day

Included on this list for me are entering a coal mine with no light, walking over fire, and watching an SPCA commercial with Sarah McLachlan.

7) You can eat a whole pint of ice cream

I have a date on Valentine's Day. It's with my Chunky Monkeys, Ben and Jerry. Get some ice cream, sit on the couch, and the only thing you will have to wonder is what piece of cookie dough to eat next.

8) You can drive around to the pop hit "All By Myself"

The popular 1975 hit will be a constant reminder that you are, in fact, all by yourself. (Also, as a side note, the Celine Dion version of the song is fabulous.)

9) You can look forward to the things that are going to be half off tomorrow.

Always wanted that Valentine's teddy bear but are reluctant to spend $30? Or do you want some Ghirardelli chocolates that are SUPER expensive? No problem, just head to your local CVS on February 15. All of that wondrous glory will be half off.

10) Just drink

When in doubt, turn to your favorite set of former child star twins who did not evolve into weirdos, Jack Daniels and Crown Royal.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

Dear Grandma,

I wish my words could adequately explain how much I miss seeing your smile and hearing your laugh. You were such a bright ray of sunshine in my life and now that you're gone, I can't help but remember all the times we had together.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

The NBA is back, and for basketball fans, like myself, it has been the BEST news we have heard since COVID-19 shutdown play indefinitely. I mean, come on, we need to see if James Harden can once again perform so well he has back-to-back 50 point games, Kawhi can lead another team to the championship title, and whether Giannis is going to be back-to-back MVP... among like 500 other things running through our heads!

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.
