I do not want to brag but, I have a lot of things to do come Valentines – I will give myself the best treat one single person in this revolving world, deserves. For the past 21 years of celebrating Valentines alone, I have come to the conclusion that celebrating this day alone is pretty relaxing. I will again be spending Valentine’s Day alone this year – just like how I have spent it for the past 21 years. And just like those who are in a relationship, I am excited!
I am excited because I don’t have to fret over what to wear, where to go, and what to give my partner for Valentines. Aside from being able to show yourself how much you love yourself, it is also but practical. Because basically, Valentine’s Day is just like any other day – and I couldn’t care less or more about it.
For my 21 years of existence, I have never had a partner during this festive season. Though I know for a fact that this is nothing new – considering the world where we live in now. We are living in a world where labels no longer exist. Even though I am one of the remaining few who believe that love is a fairytale. Seriously, a lot of my friends would always tell me that; “You’ll find someone worth it.” And I am just like, “Whatever!” I am not in search for Mr. Right nor am I looking for someone to celebrate my Valentines with. Because even though I am single, I don’t think that it means that I will die alone. And, who cares if I do anyways? It will never make me, nor you, a loser. Yes, I am single and I couldn’t be any happier about it.
The mere fact that I am accustomed to spending Valentine’s Day single only means that I have zero expectation. And if you’re not expecting anything, it is but impossible to be disappointed. Even though the loved-up couples will be treating each other to romantic dinners and give each other expensive gifts, I just thought that why should I deprive myself then? I might not be celebrating this day being in-love with the opposite sex but, I can totally rejoice in my freedom by spoiling myself a little bit more.
Hence, this Valentine’s Day, I’m going to do just these- I will be eating all my favorite food, stay at home, drown myself by reading, and drink copious amounts of coffee. Seriously, I can’t wait for Valentine’s Day.
