Sorry, but...

It's not about the flowers your boyfriend bought you. It's about me and all the fun things single girls can do on Valentine's Day. 

*twirls in self-love*

1

You may not get Valentine's Day candy from anyone, but you still get to reap the benefits the next day.

50% off chocolate hearts FTW.

2

You can go to the gym and it’ll be completely empty.

And you can post a thirst trap letting everyone know how insane your glow up is about to be.

3

You can revel in the fact that your friends are probably going to be super nice to you on V-Day.    

Just try not to milk it, OK?

4

You can watch all those old slasher films that are way too inappropriate to watch on the one day of the year that’s meant for love.    

"Texas Chainsaw Massacre," anyone?    

5

You can hang with your dog, the only living creature who *truly * knows and loves you.

Plus, they basically have no choice but to be your valentine.

6

You can ACTUALLY Netflix and chill, but pay attention this time.

NO ONE IS INTERRUPTING ME DURING "STRANGER THINGS."

7

You can use the night for your own self-care, which you've been meaning to do for weeks now.

Low-key so excited for a bubble bath.

8

You can throw a fancy shmancy dinner party for your other single friends.    

And finally make those recipes you’ve had bookmarked for six months.    

9

You don’t have to shave your legs.

But did you ever *really * have to?

10

You don’t have to wear any uncomfortable lingerie.  

Or pants, for that matter.  

11

You get to eat pizza on your couch without judgement.

I mean, it’s just like any other day, but it still never gets old.

12

You can double (or triple!) book dates and no one can say a damn thing.    

No boo, no rules, right?
