You may think that being single on Valentine’s day will suck. But here are few reasons to revel in the fact that you’re single and ready to mingle!

Wherever you go, there are flower bouquets, chocolates on sale, cheesy couples holding hands, and whatever nonsense that only pops up whenever it’s Valentine’s Day.

Not to sound bitter, but if love exists between two individuals, shouldn’t it show up all throughout the year?

Whenever Valentine’s Day is mentioned, singles all throughout the world worry about what they’ll do on that dreaded day when their singledom will be rubbed right in their faces.

Yes, it can be hard, but if you think about it, you can always make the best of the circumstances.

Being single on Valentine’s Day is that the smartest thing.

Trust me, there are a few things that make Valentine’s Day a real treat for all the single guys and girls in the world!

1. Chocolates come cheap this time of the year.

With all the people with someone flocking to grocery stores to buy those campy heart-shaped confections. You can just sit tight and wait for the prices to drop.

Chocolates that don’t get oversubscribed forthwith when valentine day can handily press on sale.

Because, let’s face it, when else would anybody want to get tacky heart-shaped boxes filled with chocolates?

You can grab all the endorphin-raising chocolates you desire, and you can enjoy it without sharing with anyone!

2. Two-for-one deals.

Since valentine day, it ought to be a money-making business perpetrated by whoever came up with the holiday.

There will be tons of two-for-one deals in restaurants, movies, spas and even in stores.

Businesses do that so as to encourage droves of couples to partake in their services throughout that just one occasion of the year wherever couples are expected to be joined at the hip.

But when you think about Valentine’s Day. You don’t even want to have a significant other to reap the benefits of this sale.

In fact, you’ll be able to drag on a bunch of friends, faux to a couple as couples. And revel in the total expertise at less the price!

3. Speed dating.

Because many people think that you just have to have a special somebody on Valentine’s Day. There are places where people are encouraged to meet a few other singles, in the hope of finding true love.

However, I’m not a big believer in finding true love after talking for a couple of minutes.

Speed dating is a great way to expand your network and meet new folks.

Cynical as you may be, who knows, you might find somebody who fits all the qualities you want in a partner.

And if you’re not looking for love at all, then having a bunch of folks vie for your affection during a speed dating event sure does boost the ego!

4. You’re pressure free.

On Valentine’s Day, one half of a couple, particularly the guy, is expected to come up with an elaborately romantic date to beat out all other dates.

This comes complete with selfie-opportunities, social media post-worthy pictures and emotions. And of course, a sweet little gift that may or may not involve shelling out few hundreds of dollars.

The singleness on Valentine’s Day, however, experiences absolutely none of that pressure.

You can choose where you want to go. What you want to do and what you want to buy. All without the anxiety of wondering whether or not your lover will approve.

5. Meeting singles at the club.

If you’re single and you don’t want to be, there might be other people who feel exactly the same way at some hip and happening Valentine’s party in your area.

Don’t think you’ll find true love there, but you can hope to snag somebody to make out with or maybe even sleep with, mostly thanks to the fact that singles are practically shoved into other singles during this time of the year.

And if you’re the kind to enjoy some no-strings-attached fun between the sheets, then Valentine’s Day may just be your lucky day.

Oh, and plus points because this is the time of the year where condoms with funky flavors and textures may be a lot cheaper, too.

6. It’s a great time to pamper a loved one.

Who says the love on Valentine’s Day should be reserved for somebody whom you’re romantically involved with?

Scrap that, and make it all about somebody in your life who means a lot to you!

You can pamper your mom with flowers, chocolates and a meal at her favorite restaurant. Give your sister to a full-body massage coupon at your favorite spa.

You can even take your best friend out on a dinner and a night of fun-filled partying.

And if you’re not looking to get out of the house, share your warm and fuzzy emotions with your pets by spending the day pampering them and cuddling with them!

7. Share your love with people who want it.

There are many people in the world who need love, but sadly, they don’t get it.

Even though you can reach out to them at any other time of the month, some of them may be pining for some added affection when they see that couples far and wide are celebrating Valentine’s Day.

You could visit a nursing home in your area and offer to talk to the elderly men and women who want to share what Valentine’s Day was like back in the day.

ang out with the kids at a children’s shelter and help them out with making Valentine’s crafts.

You can even pay a visit to an animal shelter in your area and volunteer as you spread love to the animals who are in need of some affection and care.

The best thing about this is that you can learn more from the folks who are bereft of love that you can from partaking in commercially orchestrated displays of affection.

8. There is humor in bitterness.

Look at your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds for five minutes on Valentine’s Day. And you’re sure to run into somebody ranting about their lack of a love life.

They may not truly hate in this day and age, however, their funny very little rants will positively be abusive.

And when you turn on the TV or tune into Netflix, you might even find some romantic comedy that depicts the futility of romance in a world. Where everybody’s either bitter or cynical.

Though you may not share their feelings, it sure is a great way to lift the pressure off being single on Valentine’s Day.

And if you’re feeling lovesick on this day. The humor spewed out on this particular day is indeed one of the greatest medicines!

So what if you’re single on Valentine’s Day? It doesn’t mean you can’t have as much or more fun than all those other couples you see around you.

Use this day to appreciate being a single, carefree and amazing individual!
