Exchanging gifts, flowers, cards and love to one another is what Valentine's Day is all about. However, for many of us they day can evoke loneliness and self doubt. From experience, February 14 can be quite difficult when single, so make sure you have your single survival kit in place.

Do not dwell and focus of the negatives of being single. Instead, take the opportunity to focus on all the positives of flying solo. Being single means you can do what you want, whenever you want. If you want to stay up late you can, if you want to eat Chinese food, then go ahead. Celebrate the fact that you don't have to answer to anyone.

Spoiling yourself on Valentine's is a great way to get into the spirit of things. Give yourself a little extra TLC and remember that you don't need a partner to buy you things. Enjoying a massage or buying that piece of jewellery you have always wanted will help cure any feelings of loneliness.

Keeping busy is the key to surviving Valentine's Day. Organising a catch up with friends is a great way to keep busy and your mind occupied. Don't leave this to the last minute, make sure you book this date in early so you are not disappointed and end up alone. Go out for dinner to a fancy restaurant or do some shopping. Go to places where other singles will be such as a bar or a club. These are great places to mingle and meet new people.

If you are vulnerable on a day like Valentine's Day, make sure you don't do something you may regret later. Making that call to your ex is a definite no. Avoid romantic movies if you believe they will make you more depressed. Avoid anything that you believe will harm your heart and emotions.

These are essential key points that should be kept in your survival kit. Don't be afraid to re open your kit throughout the day to ensure you stay focused and busy at all times. Remember there are no negatives about being single on Valentine's Day only positives!
