The Do's And The Don'ts of Valentine's Day, As Told By Corrine Olympios

The Do's And The Don'ts of Valentine's Day, As Told By Corrine Olympios

"My heart is gold, but my vagine is platinum."

Every January, America's longest lasting reality television show, The Bachelor, debuts with a new dream guy, and twenty-some even dreamier women. The show, centered around finding a potential spouse, falls over the most important holiday to celebrate love: Valentine's Day.

February 14th is a strange day in society. It's loved by many but also extremely dreaded. Let's be honest, walking down those drugstore aisles, filled with giant, fuzzy stuffed animals, and looking at people buying their significant other heart-shaped boxes of chocolate kind of sucks, but if you're the recipient of that giant stuffed teddy bear and those delicious chocolate truffles, you probably love V-Day.

In the world, and in the Bachelor Nation, not everyone is going to be the recipient of chocolates, flowers, nice dinners, and teddy bears on Valentine's Days, but that doesn't mean that you still can't have a great February 14th! Here are the do's, and the don'ts, of Valentine's Day, as told by everyone's favorite Bachelor 21 contestant, Corrine Olympios!

1. Don't hang out with couples

Just don't do it. It's going to be uncomfortable for everyone involved.

2. Don't go on a date, just to have a date for V-Day

Don't settle for a free dinner and an awkward kiss at the end of the night.

3. Don't be jealous of other people and their relationships just because it's Valentine's Day

Remember, jealousy is the ugliest color someone can wear!

4. Don't hook up with someone

Just trust me on this one.

5. Don't text your ex

Just trust me on this one, too.

6. Don't be sad if you don't have a Valentine

You're you, and everyone around you loves that!

Now, just because there's some don'ts, doesn't mean you can't have a few do's. Once again, here's Corrine, telling you how to have a successful V-Day!

1. Do treat yourself

Get some sushi, get some wine, rent a movie, and snuggle up with that fuzzy blanket you couldn't resist picking up when you were at Target.

2. Do drink that wine

This V-Day is technically Wine Wednesday, so that's a good excuse to drink my whole bottle of rosé, right?

3. Do go on a date with the right person

Don't settle, but if it's the right person, why not?

4. Do show affection to those who deserve it

A smooch-smooch here and a smooch-smooch there!

5. Do tell everyone that you love and care about them, even if they're not your significant other

Everyone deserves to hear this on the day of love!

6. Do remember your worth

Remember that self-love is the best love!

So thank you Corrine Olympios. Thank you for showing us the do's and the don'ts of Valentine's Day and thank you for making Nick's season so entertaining!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.
