With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, you are either experiencing one of two emotions: pure excitement or sheer disbelief. Girls, not having a valentine isn't the end of the world. In fact, you should be using it to your advantage. Think of it like this: it's ONE day to show love, so why not take advantage of it and start showing yourself the love that you deserve?
1. Make yourself a nice breakfast.
Make it as unhealthy (or healthy) as you want. If you can't cook, take yourself out.
2. Take a bubble bath.
You deserve a break so soak it up while you can.
3. Buy the damn flowers for yourself.
Just do it. Even though they'll die eventually, take the cute Instagram pic and caption it, "Bought the damn flowers for myself." You're welcome.
4. Reward yourself with something you've been wanting.
There's nothing that makes you feel more confident than when your bra and underwear match. If you never splurge on lingerie, consider this the day to do it.
5. Watch Iskra Lawerence's TED Talk on body image and self-confidence.
Can't believe I met this woman (twice). I love you, Iskra, keep doing what you're doing, you're setting a great example for young women.
6. Go on a day trip to somewhere you've never been.
Because why the hell not? It doesn't have to be far, it can be the next town over. Get your Spotify playlist going and hit the road!
7. Take cute Instagram pics with balloons.
At least the decor is cute! If you want to dress up, invite your fellow singletons over and have a photo-shoot. It's about time your feed got more colorful, anyway.
8. Figure out what you want out of love.
I know you didn't want to hear it from me, but let's get real here-- it's TIME you decided what you deserve. No more fuckboys, no more excuses. Maybe you're just looking in all the wrong places for love. Maybe you shouldn't even be looking that hard. Good love will find you.
