Bonjour my lovebirds!
First of all, I must apologize for the terrible quality pictures. The situation called for an indoor setting at best (or none at all), so into my habitation we are now proceeded.
Today is of course the famed national day of love, and for those of us who are too awesome for a normal relationship, Valentine's Day rolls around as the specifically celebrated day of movie-watching, junk-food-consuming, and of course, chocolate-obsessing. Which would be among the pictures above had I not already pigged out and eaten the amount which I have received. Tragic reality of it all.
Having proceeded thus far, you're probably thinking that Valentine's Day is a horribly sad and solitary day of the year for me and fellow sassy singlers. If you yourself are single, you are either sympathizing in our tragic fate or you are thinking to yourself how awesome being free and flirty-herty really is (if the latter, are you being honestly, morally, and devastatingly truthful to yourself? well? are you????). If you are the former, then have no fear, I am here with my special Valentine's Day version of the "Top 7 Reasons Being Single Isn't A Handicap". If you honestly, truthfully, and realistically think being single is where it's at, then congratulations! You're already a VIP member at this party. Proceed on to see if our reasons converge.
Reason No. 1:
You have the power to flirt with whomsoever your little heart desires WITHOUT the consequences of a jealous beau finding out.
Reason No. 2:
You get to spend the day the way YOU say, without the hassle of thinking of the other person. Whether it's chillin' with the gal pals or relaxing solo with a movie, you get to call the shots.
Reason No. 3:
Your wallet gets to keep the money other people are using to splurge on their Valentine. The implication? That money can instead go towards the pair of shoes you've been eyeing online. And if that isn't good enough, Valentine's Day sales affirm the legitimacy of this reason. Yay celebratory shopping!
Reason No. 4:
You don't have to deal with high expectations and low deliverance. Every girl is waiting for the perfect Valentine's Day where her boyfriend goes to a lot of trouble, planning, and expense to make her feel special. And more often than not, there is at least a little disappointment that a nice dinner is the only thing you do together. As a sassy singler, this problem is nonexistent. You know what you want to do and you do it. Or, you don't know what to do, but you still find a way to let loose eventually. No high expectations, no disappointment. Satisfaction guaranteed.
Reason No. 5:
There's no worry that your guy forgot what day it was. Now THAT would be a kick in the pants.
Reason No. 6:
Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate. And it's all yours, no sharing necessary.
Reason No. 7:
You are independent, looking out for yourself and being free with your time. You have no commitments or obligations to a relationship to hinder you. You could travel the world, hang with friends, start a club, and make other decisions based on your romantic freedom. Then, when you have found the guy you want to date, you won't feel like you never got the chance to do your own thing. You'll have done it and be done with it, ready for a relationship that could be the rest of your life. Oh, and you'll live happily ever after. The end.
The gist of the story? Celebrate your sassy singleness while you've got it. Flaunt it. Enjoy it. Have fun with it. It won't last forever (well, hopefully not, anyway).
