Dear my fellow single chocolate lovers all around the world,
It's officially February. No one is thinking, "hey winter is almost over, spring will be here before we know it". Nah, who would ever think about that? Everyone is either thinking about their boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife/dog/ferret that they love more than anyone, or about taking a bottle of wine to the face when the wonderful day of love comes around. Yes, I'm talking about Valentine's Day. Whether you are thinking about a significant other or about that wine that is calling your name, both can bring you same amount of happiness. Single people, quit being annoying when this day comes and get a grip on life (and your bottle).

I don't think in my 18 years of living, that I have ever had a "real" valentine. I mean, my parents get me chocolate usually, but that doesn't count (please send me chocolate still). I never really understood this day of love because the single pringle life isn't really that bad. Many single people only see the negatives of Valentine's Day. Hello, are you people ok? There are many benefits to being single during this time. Let's discuss, shall we?
First of all, the discounted chocolate the days after Valentine's Day. You can have a field day at the super markets. Buy as much chocolate as you want to make yourself feel better about being annoyed about all the cute little Instagram posts. C'mon, we shouldn't be petty little Valentines Day "grinches". Some couples are actually adorable whether we want to admit it or not. We love to hate on love.

You can also play a nice little drinking game with your other single friends. Every time someone makes a Snapchat story of chocolate or presents, fill up that glass of wine. I promise you won't even be thinking about the fact that you're single. Just don't be one of those people who texts their ex...especially on Valentine's Day. If you drunk text your ex on this day, you might be the worst person and this might be the reason that you are single.
ABC Family or whatever the hell it's called now will probably have a nice movie marathon. 100% they will show "He's Just Not That Into You" and "How To Lose a Guy In 10 Days" maybe 7 times in just one weekend. Classic. Do not sit around and watch these for the whole day. Throw a party by yourself, have a dance party and blast some Rihanna. I don't care. Stop watching the same movie that you can practically quote word by word, and do something spontaneous.
As the living legend Britney Spears once sang, "My loneliness is killing me (and I) I must confess I still believe (still believe)", she was clearly going through a rough patch. This "loneliness" is non-existent when you are living your single life to the fullest, and "I still believe" that all of us will find love with our wine bottle in hand in the future. No worries, look at Britney Spears now. She's killing it.
