“But you make me wanna act like a girl
Paint my nails and wear high heels
Yes you make me so nervous that I just can’t hold your hand”
Which is the reality of a lot of us this Valentine’s day. Sorry Demi Lovato, I will RELUCTANTLY not be listening to your amazing song this Valentine’s day because well this 14th of February nobody will be, like your song says, making me wanna act like a girl, paint my nails and wear high heels.
TV can’t say enough about it, the radio won’t stop playing songs about it, store’s refuse to stop commercializing it and now i can’t stop thinking about it!!! Its everywhere and don’t tell anyone but i think its haunting me… To take back the situation i have taken it upon myself to compile a singles’ guide to surviving the month of love…I am proud to say this territory is not new to me and i am a survivor. I have tried and tested some of these ideas. I AM SHE and i approve this message!
- Single’s Hangout: Because let’s face it…you are not the only single person you know and nobody wants to be lonely on Valentine’s day…So call up your friends…or create a whatsapp group as i prefer… #StudentBudgetProblems and plan hangout. It can cost as little a $5 per person because all you need is some decent snacks…and besides what the hangout lacks in the food department it can compensate in the good company department.
- Take me to church!! As Hozier sang in his single. Fortunately for you this year V’day falls on a Sunday so it goes without saying that some of us will have somewhere to be this 14th of February. PS God does not charge an entrance fee!! Take advantage.
- Romantic movie marathon: Yeah, so cliché, i know but trust me there no better way to pass time than a good two hours of a good love story…My personal favorite “Pride and Prejudice” the Keira Knightley version. And if you really want to go crazy why not kill 4 hours by watching a Bollywood movie. With of course some yummy treats…Spoil yourself!! I repeat Spoil thyself!! you do not need to wait for someone to spoil you…make it a binge night if you must. But Valentine’s day 2016 will not go uncelebrated.
- If you can’t beat them, Join them… Couples can be so annoying, especially on days that celebrate how into each other they are but let’s face it… love is beautiful and should be celebrated so why not be happy with them. And if you were in their shoes you would be just as yuckily in love as they are.
The key thing to this guide is that whether baeless or status pending or boarders separate you and your bae celebrate the 14th of February…TRY TRY TRY not to be alone…make it memorable…If you’re single then be good at it!!!
