8 Reasons It’s Great To Be Single On Valentine’s Day

Er, who says being single on Valentine's has to be a miserable affair? In fact, we reckon it's pretty damn deadly. Here's why...

Bridesmaids drinking wine

1. No unrealistic expectations

How many times have you expected the works on V day from your other half only to be sorely disappointed? More times than we’d like to remember our exes have ended up totally forgetting and giving us a crappy last minute card and a box of chocolates. When you’re single you’re guaranteed not to be let down cos the only person you have to rely on is yourself and you’d never forget to buy yourself a pressie, right?!

2. No unrealistic sexpectations

Because seriously, after eating a whole box of Milk Tray who really wants to squeeze themselves into some teeny tiny, over-priced lingerie? Not us, that’s for sure.

3. You’ll save loadsa cash

There’s no way around it, Valentine’s day is a costly affair. Whatever you buy your SO, it’s guaranteed to make a dent in your bank account. So instead of wasting all your spends on crappy men clothes or a stupid game for the X Box, you can save your pretty pennies for a night out with the gals at the weekend or an extra bottle of vino. Your call.

4. No jammed restaurants

Valentine’s Day has to be one of the worst days of the year for dining out yet we all insist on doing it. Luckily, single gals don’t feel the pressure to go out and get dolled up only to go to an over-packed, over-priced restaurant. You are free to kick back at home and enjoy your Dominos. Yessir!

5. No sharing food

You can eat the entire tub of Ben N Jerry’s with absolutely no judgement. Need we say more?

6. You don’t have to pretend to like the crappy pressie he bought you

There is nothing worse than pretending to like a gift you secretly hate. Besides, do you really need another cuddly toy taking up space on your bed? Chances are you don’t. This year you’ll have the double all to yourself and the only thing you’ll be sharing it with is your laptop, a takeaway box and a bottle of wine. Perfection.

7. You can spend the day in your jammies

And more importantly, there’s nobody around to judge you for it.

8. No social media pressure

Get ready: February the 14th is the day you’re going to see a lot of #LuckyGirl and #TheBoyDidGood statuses. You on the otherhand can wax lyrical about spending 12 hours watching Sex And The City reruns and not having to share your garlic bread, and really, what could be better than that?
