People love to hate on Valentine’s Day. But why? It’s just a stupid holiday created by Hallmark, right? Maybe. Maybe not. Let’s not take it so personally. Quite frankly, “Singles Awareness Day” is getting old. I’m over it. She’s over it. He’s over it. Yes, I am aware that singles outnumber married people in America, but can we just call it “Saturday”? Or, like, “Wear Something Sexy and Eat Chocolate Day”?
And besides, are any of us really alone? Grab your best girlfriends and toast to singledom! Dear single, you don’t need to depend on a member of the opposite sex to get through any day. Go dancing. Strengthen your relationship with Netflix. Put on a pink wig and KARAOKE! Or better yet, soak in a rose-petal-covered bubble bath and treat yoself like the sexy bitch you are. Being single does not suck.
On the other hand, if you do in fact have a Valentine, enjoy your love fest. I encourage you to get some. Don’t get me wrong, I will not be seeing 50 Shades of Grey this weekend. Nor will I be seen in red, pink, or any other blush-colored tones. In fact, I may even wear head-to-toe black because that’s how I roll. I’m just saying, Valentine’s Day is for all of us. It is a day for mass-texting heart emojis and eating chocolate with reckless abandon. Let’s all enjoy it in our own way, single or not.
