Valentine's Day Without The Significant Other

Jan 27, 2008
Many a heart are fluttering, anticipating Valentine's Day. If you've just split with your partner, don't mope. Instead, splurge and give yourself a treat. There's no time like now to get in shape. Who knows? You'll find new love waiting in the wings, so indulge and enjoy Valentine's Day with your dearest friends and your favorite things.

A Valentine's Day Alone?

Come Valentine's Day, all the world's lovers will be celebrating. There will be intimate dinners, dancing, a stroll in the park, movies and popcorn, and a date in the ice cream parlor. The postman will be delivering cards and inboxes will be full of tender messages. But if you've just split up with your boyfriend, chances are you'll be crying your heart out, especially if you've learned he's going out with someone new.

If you're intending to drown your sorrow in booze and emo music, expect to look like a wreck in the morning after. What if you bump into your ex-boyfriend the next day? That would be a crying shame. So instead of ruining your looks, splurge and pamper yourself. Give yourself a treat. Cheer up and roll up your sleeves. Give yourself a spa treatment at home, cook up a Mexican dinner, chill the wine, and watch the latest movie in DVD. And not a romantic movie, please. You're better off with adventure and thrillers at this point. Nothing should start you feeling sorry for yourself.

Top Things To Do When Spending Valentine's Day Alone

Before the big night, get a new hair style and enjoy a beauty makeover. In short, spend your money on yourself. Or, if you prefer the privacy of your own home, by all means, indulge in a warm bath. Light up scented candles, play soft music, and think about the future. Losing your man is painful and it's hard to get over the separation. But it is not yet the end of the world.

The key to a successful Valentine's Day alone is keeping yourself busy. Call up your single friends and those who are not committed to anybody at the moment. Dress up and put your best foot forward. Put on a dab of your most expensive perfume. In short, smell and look like a movie star. Be ready to meet new people. There are guys out there also going through a nasty break up. Be cheerful. Don't bore your friends to tears with your sob story. They've also had their share of break-ups, but if you watch them closely, they're happy and enjoying themselves. There are no more traces of recriminations and loneliness. So party and have fun, but be careful with the booze. Drinking too much might just bring on the bittersweet memories.

If you prefer to be alone at home, why not? Put up a grand feast with leftovers from the gourmet gift baskets you hoarded last Christmas. You can plop yourself on the big sofa bed, watch TV, or listen to your favorite music. A good book can be a good companion, too. Remember to call your parents and your siblings or email them your greetings. It's always heartening to know you have people who love you, and they are just a call away. So cheer up and face Valentine's Day with a smile and hide your broken heart for the moment. The sun will still shine the day after.
