Valentine’s Day is approaching! It’s actually 6 days away! That’s less than a freaking week damn it.
(So if you haven’t already purchased those gifts, made those dinner rsvp’s, then please explain to me what you’re doing with your life! LOL)
But this post isn’t for the one’s that are in a relationship, and what they should buy their lover. (I’ll actually be discussing that over on The Broken Robotz blog this week, so if you’re still scrambling to figure out what you should get, we’ll be discussing that there!)
However, THIS post is for all the single ladies (and men) that ain’t got nobody to love this Valentine’s Day. Like me!
Yes, I’m single too! And I’ve ALWAYS been single on Valentines Day, with the exception of one year. And that wasn’t even that great.
So maybe I’m a bit overqualified at the moment, but what ever, let’s not discuss that.
Let’s talk about how you’re gonna survive all the mushy, lovey dovey folks this year so you don’t end up depressed and crying to yourself, drowning your expensive ass ice cream in your crocodile tears.
(Because no one likes wet ice cream!)
How To Survive Valentine’s Day When You’re Not In A Relationship:
1. Don’t Go Outside
No seriously, Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday this year! So what ever you do, DON’T GO OUTSIDE!
Do you know how many “in love” couples are out there just waiting to rub it in your face? Don’t do it to yourself damn it. Stay inside!
(Unless of course you’re like me and you accidentally rsvp’d for a fashion show on that day! Ugh!)
2. Binge Watch TV Shows On Netflix
Since you’re not allowed to go outside, why not stay inside and binge watch those TV shows you’ve been dying to watch? I haven’t watched Orange Is The New Black in WEEKS because I’ve been so damn busy, but you my dear friend don’t have an excuse!
So watch something. Then watch something else.
But here’s the thing, don’t go watching any sappy, love stuff!
I love romantic comedy’s too, but for the love of God do NOT watch them!
Wanna know what you should watch?
Well, that’s tomorrow’s post! So pop your email address in to the right of this post and subscribe to find out when it drops.
I’m gonna search through Netflix for you and make you a list of funny shows and movies to watch so you can take your mind off of Valentine’s Day, and if they’re not funny, at least they’ll be distracting.
3. Don’t Talk To Your Friends
So how many times have you had to listen to your friend rant about how great her boyfriend (or girlfriend) is?
Let’s not do that this year!
Turn your phone off if you have too. But do NOT conversate with anyone in a relationship!
(Yes I know that’s not a real word, don’t interrupt me!)
Oh, and don’t log into social media either! That’s 10x worse! You’ll have to see photos of hugs, and kisses and .. and ..
… and all the damn gifts everyone else got that you didn’t! *cue waterworks*
So yeah, for your sake, and mine.
STAY AWAY FROM ALL MANKIND.
4. Buy Yourself Something
So since no one else is buying you those roses, or chocolates, why not buy yourself something?
Listen, with the way MY bank account is set up … “see I got a checking and a savings and all the money is in my savings so…” I can’t really afford to this year, especially since I’m going to Fashion Week and the little money I do have, I’m going to have to spend it on cute clothes I’m only gonna wear for one day. Ugh.
But I mean, if you can afford it, then why not treat yourself to something?
I’m not saying order a thousand things and address them from “your secret admirer”, then have them shipped to your job so you can pretend that someone likes you. (Don’t do that! Lol)
What I’m saying is, if you want those macaroons, go buy some! That nice bracelet you were staring at last week, go get it! Why? Because you freaking deserve it damn it!
Don’t wait for someone else to buy it for you.
(Because I’ll tell ya, it ain’t never gonna happen! LOL)
So there you have it, your mini guide to surviving Valentine’s Day!
Know anyone else that’s single? Maybe you should (kindly) pass this on to them, from one single friend to another.
But don’t you dare pass this on to your single friend if you’re in a relationship damn it.
So tell me, what do you think? Do you have any other tips to add to this list? I need all the help I can get this year! Seriously. LOL
Talk to me!
