A Valentine’s Day : Single but ways to be happy

Love is in the Air !

Sure it is.

But are you feeling it enough? Never mind and just know that there are many like you who are also trying to avoid this very topic.

So do not you think that you too deserve to feel special? Do not you think that when you are here now you have every right to be happy? You should be feeling in love and be loved –do you agree with me so far? Do you agree that among so many people, you do not deserve to feel left out?

If your answer is yes even to one question above then please welcome aboard here. And let me share with you some ideas to enjoy Valentine’s Day.

The reason to unreasoning ……

One does not have so called love in life to celebrate this day. May be, one have broken up with ex for so many reasons that one do not even want to think. Or chances are that, you are yet to find the Right Choice and still on the waiting queue which seems purposely longer during this time of the year. Another option also may be that, you are a divorcee and also alone which hurts more specifically this time. God bless the one, but one may be widower to be feeling so sad during this time and missing the departed one more than ever. Then another reason to be more irritated is that all your friends are happily feeling the love in the Air and you have self-respect to be pitied upon. SO let the singles out there, feel happy in your own loving company even to make the ones in company envy you! Never the less, when it’s Valentine’s Day we all have every right to celebrate it to the fullest rather than being alone and feel left out.

Uhh….am I hearing you saying WHY to celebrate at all?

If you are alone and not planning for any celebration (yes even you can celebrate!) then sure you will be sad never mind together the sweltering frustration. In case of a widow, to be sadder during this time and miss your partner who is no more? But then, will your partner be happy to see you lamenting? The one with ex’s and enjoying the single or complicated status so far should celebrate more for one simple reason….do you not think that you will be angry and all negative and getting frustrated for all the reasons to be alone now? It is mush preferable to enjoy then to remember the ones who made you alone than to be angry and frustrated. For the one who is a widower it is to remember the lost one in some loving memory and to be happy for time together sure than to be with tears. So for the one who are alone in this Valentine’s Day here are some reasons to be happy and feel the warmth and yes LOVE in the Air…!

Single yet we celebrate !!!!!

o Pamper yourself and you can go ahead and book yourself a spa session to be happy – You sure have a big reason to pamper yourself on this Valentine’s Day.

o Going for a shopping to indulge in a nice dress that might have caught your attention for some time and what is the best day to buy it then the Valentine’s Day?

o Book yourself for a short vacation trip nearby to unwind – even one can feel luxuriously happy to be alone and with the room services on order to fulfil the day.

o Buy some nice flowers for YOU.

o Buy a nice gift that you like most may be huge a TEDDY, Bar of Chocolates, Expensive bottle of wine, Cosmetics, Perfumes, Purse, Shoes or anything. Why cannot you gift yourself to make YOU happy?

o If you drive you can go for a long drive alone with nice music on and unwind to feel the love in the Air.

o You can order a lavish dinner and decorate the dining table with candles and some romantic music with flowers to dine and feel rejuvenated on this Valentine’s Day.

o A visit to a temple to feel spiritually refreshed and celebrate the day may be even window shopping.

o Just seat with your fav novel with music as per your choice and relax the whole day calling it a leave from work and just celebrate the luxury of laziness around.

o Lunch out alone in a new restaurant to taste a new dish for a difference to remember for some time to be happy.

o Just be happy that there is none to disturb you and even to spoil your mood.

o Be happy that there is none to fight with silly things and rather you are blessed that you can plan as per your own choice and spared to think what to gift and how to surprise. Trust me sometimes that can be even boring though many may not accept it honestly.

o Many times these days become a reason to argue between the romantic alliances. Thank God that you are spared this year at least. Trust me, I know many friends who argues with many reasons based on these days.

o Main thing is that, never give time or look for any company even friends who are also single. Love yourself on this Valentine’s Day and feel happy. Be your own Valentine on this year and feel the loneliness with joy and thankfulness to God.

Thus the roll can go on but these are just only some ideas to explore your own things. It is just that you may not get this day again as you may get married/engaged/in a relationship next year. But even being alone you can celebrate and LOVE yourself. Just trust one thing that, who can love own self can love another person to be happy. This year celebrate being in love with YOUR self… CHEEERZ to all who are singles in this Valentine’s Day.

Disclaimer Clause

It is no way intended to justify that love is not to be celebrated in this Valentine’s Day. But it’s a mere attempt to give some ideas to the singles out there to be happy about. Those who are enjoying the romantic relationship and head over heal in love, God bless their love. But they often neglect their so called family/friends/associate during this date who are single as they tend to get very busy in celebrating their togetherness. So this thought came to hub down some ideas for the ONEs who have every right to be happy.

Another important point is that I am not alone and I am happily married. But I felt for those who are alone and so this hub here is for them. I know may friends/family who are alone and just a massage to them that, they also have every reason to be happy and feel loved on this special day.

Thank you for reading this hub and your precious time here.

Valentine's day and being alone :-(

      Voted up and interesting. We should love ourselves all year round but I do agree that we can pamper ourselves especially on Valentine's if we happen to find ourselves alone. You have offered some good suggestions. Thanks for sharing.

      Dear Faith, You have some wise views here as always. Let me first thank you for your ever gracious visit, view, votes and shares. I am much honored.

      You are absolutely right here. Valentines Day is now almost a marketing gimmick all over the world. And the husbands forgetting this day and being in Dogs LOL ....its funny but reality in many cases, I do agree. Your last Valentines Day writing a poem for your children is very nice idea. Every day of life should be a full fledged Valentines Day for sure and we really don need a special date to express our love for the one whom we love or for OWN self. Thanks again. God bless you my friend :-) have a good day ahead



      Many thanks @thgofplayer...for stopping by here and leaving your comment. Apart from money matters its those lonely feeling being more deeper and frustrating for which I complied this hub mainly during this festivals. Thank you once again and I hope you have great day ahead.

      God bless you



      Thanks you @Mhatter for you read this hub. To be honest I am very confused as why your wife is taking you to hospital and that too really? I am sure waiting for your reply here if you can get some free time.

      Thanks and God bless you

      I don't think there should be one day dedicated to love, I think it should be shown year around to those in ones life who they hold dear. I think valentines and christmas both put a lot of undue stress on those without. Those without money for presents, and those without a loved one to spend it with.

      Awesome hub.

      I think loving oneself and others should be a daily thing. If one does not love oneself, then you are unable to love others. Valentines Day is great, but I think it has been so commercial to the extent that a man feels as if he is obligated to purchasing whatever for his love of his life, and if he does not, then he is in the dog house. Love should be expressed to family, friends and others each day of the year. Last year, I wrote a poem to both of my grown children (son and daughter) about the day of their birth and the meanings of their names, and they both loved it. As for me and my husband, we have been married for 34 years and it is a given, but I am not knocking any romantic dinner or anything, I just think that all of that should be all year along, i.e., giving of the little love notes and not just waiting until this one day, where the price of roses is trippled on this one day for pure greed.

      Nice hub and great advice. Voted up +++ and sharing (will come back to share)

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper
