Itís that time of the month again. Where people in relationships are anticipating a romantic gesture from their partner and single people are dreading the thought of spending it alone.
Donít fret singles, Iím happy to announce that those in relationships are the ones who are most likely to get disappointed.
Singles have no expectation, they know thereís nothing coming so they prepare for exactly that. If youíre still worried, make a reservation at your favourite restaurant with one of your best friends or a group of your girlfriends. Stay at home with your loved furry friend with an indulging treat and watch cheap reality TV shows. Or better yet, just continue living as if itís a normal day Ė because it really is!
I have personally been in a relationship for most Valentine's Days and Iíve seen it all. Iíve been disappointed with the boyfriend who did nothing, Iíve been given the tiny teddy bear, had a romantic getaway in Vanuatu and have even been surprised with a serenade of love songs at my office (which embarrassed me to my core).
If you really are worried about the hype that is Valentineís Day, then just plan ahead. Talk to your partner about what youíd like to do on that night so that you donít have false expectations, this way if you do get the surprise flowers sent to your office it can be a little bonus in your day.
And singles, enjoy not having any one in particular to worry about or who will let you down.
Letís all just relax and turn Valentineís Day into a day for all to show a bit of love for life!
