Single On V-Day?

Don't be ashamed to say the phrase if you're single... "Happy Valentine's Day!" or as other's who don't have a boo, man, or significant other would say, "Happy Single's Awareness Day!" This day like no other, gives you the harsh reality that you're single. It doesn't have to be harsh though. There is nothing that says Valentine's Day has to be shared solely by two people who are googly eyed for each other. You can in fact share it with a group of friends. 

There have been many occasions where I just didn't have a "Valentine" and that was ok with me. My girlfriends and I one year decided that we were just going to order pizza, watch movies, and give each other gifts on Valentine's Day... which leads me to the point of my post. Are you and your girlfriends single this Valentine's Day? If so here are a few things you can do, to still feel special and have a great time on Valentine's Day:

Gift Bag or Basket - Not just any gift, but maybe a basket, container or gift bag filled with cute little girlie things. Target has a HUGE Dollar Bin section that is filled with things you can add or accent your basket with. Get creative based on your friends' personalities.

Ladies Night - If you and more than a few of your girlfriends are single, this would be the perfect time to have a night out on the town. Rent a limo and head out to your favorite destination. You never know, there night be a group of guys with the same idea.

Blockbuster Night - Call Roundtable Pizza or Papa Johns and invite all your girlfriends over for a night of watching chick flicks. The Notebook is the ultimate chick flick LOL.

Girlie Girl Night - This is a night that includes ALL things girlie. Cupcakes with pink frosting, pedis, manis and make-up tips. This sounds like a juvenile sleep-over, but you're never too old to have a fun night with your girlfriends. 

There is nothing wrong with being single. For whatever reason, society tells us we NEED someone else to make us happy and that's just not the case. Happiness starts from within FIRST and the person that comes along that is our 'soul mate' only ENHANCES the happiness we already have. Just a little food for though. Snack on that.
