How to survive valentines day single
Buy yourself a nice bottle of wine. Two Buck Chuck is a glorious thing, but do like Beyonce says and upgrade u every once in a while.
Feed Your Single Soul With...
Alone with pizza is better than alone alone. Watch movies that you know a significant other would scoff to death if you ever tried to watch in their presence.
Cheesy 90s teen flicks work really well here. The Notebook does not. You deserve pretty things, and sometimes, all it takes is being reminded that you can be just as kind to yourself as a significant other might be.
Or have a shower beer. Whatever your poison, just pamper yourself.
