Ah Valentine’s Day, a bit of a ‘Hallmark Holiday’ don’t you think?
That thought aside, I have always liked it. I think it’s a nice excuse to show that special someone how much you love them, as well as share in a little romance – because why the hell not?
In every relationship I’ve been in I have always celebrated Valentine’s Day. We exchanged gifts and flowers, dined in romantic restaurants and enjoyed romantic dinners.
One Valentine’s Day that has really cemented in my memory, is eight years ago. I was with my first serious boyfriend at the time. He set the bar high when he filled his entire bedroom with candles and even spelled out the word ‘I love you’ with candles on the bed. I think that is still the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for me! It still makes me smile a little when I think about it.
The last couple of Valentine’s Days haven’t been quite so romantic. Not even close, but I have been single! I thought about putting some romance in my own bedroom once, but I figured putting candles all over my own bed might be pushing it…it also might start a fire!
This Valentine’s Day, I realize that it’s really not the end of the world if you’re not in a relationship on Valentine’s Day, and it really is going to be okay if you haven’t got a hot date.
So I want to do something a little different with my evening. I want to spend the time with my single girlfriends (the few I still have anyway), and embrace the single life. As corny as it may sound, I want to go out and show Perth that we’re single and fabulous!
If you’re single and dateless this Valentine’s Day, I recommend you do the same.
Please don’t sit around the house moping because you don’t have a date, or that you didn’t get a rose! Go out and buy yourself a bunch of roses and drink some champagne with your girlfriends! – You deserve it!
