In case you haven’t picked up on the “subtle” hints all around; here’s the message loud and clear: It’s almost Valentine’s Day. And the thing about V-Day - whether you love it or hate it - you can’t ignore it .… it’s everywhere! But, what if you’re flying solo?
So, February 14th, known as “Singles Awareness Day” or “National lonely hearts Day” for those of us in the single lane, right? Actually, quite the opposite. Recent studies reveal that more of us are single than ever before. According to Eric Klinenberg, author of Going Solo, The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone, people are choosing to live alone, and despite the best efforts of every romantic comedy ever made to convince us otherwise, many consider their single status “a mark of distinction, not a social failure.”
In fact, there’s a rom-com still to be documented and it goes like this: There’s a single person with many best friends – men and women, and the occasional lover, and a heap of crushes and he/she moves through life with no regrets and no cats. Happy mostly. Just like everyone else …
Okay, so what about the happy singletons among us, you know - those who don’t actually MIND being single on V-Day - shouldn’t the celebration have something for us as well? Definitely! V-Day isn’t exclusively for couples. February 14th is a day dedicated to loving your friends, family, and most importantly, yourself. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be your own secret admirer!
So pop the cork and celebrate a day of love!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
