Your relationship status does not define who you are. Focus on your strengths as a person and why it’s fun to be single. If you are single and you like it, now is the time to affirm your choice. People who never marry or partner have close, loving, emotionally intimate relationships and lives worth living. Do not let a couple-driven culture define your choice as something wrong.
Valentine’s Day is a commercial holiday – it is not about love and relationships; it is about selling flowers, candy, and diamond jewelry. Think of all the money you are saving.
If you are single and you don’t want to be, start now to think about what is in the way of you creating the relationship you want. Find ways to work on becoming the person your dream partner would fall in love with. Start therapy. Take up yoga. Begin to volunteer. Create art. Make meaning. Act to change the world. It is into the fullest lives that love is most likely to fall.
