Kisses, chocolates and cherry-red hearts everywhere—there’s just something about Valentine’s day that seems to put everyone in a spin. If you’re single, though, here’s how to celebrate the day of hearts:
Go out with a pal
It can be easy to allow yourself to be mired in self-pity or to get into a bit of a lonely state over your lack of a date. But being a free agent doesn’t mean being lonely. Who says Valentine’s Day is only for lovers? Go out with friends and enjoy V-day with each other, says Cavalier Daily. Tell stories, share a meal, have wine. Have fun.
Have the right reasons
If you’ve decided to go out on a date, though, do it for the right reasons: that you’re ready to start and build a relationship with someone, or you simply want to go out and meet new people. Leave the baggage at home.
Give that blind date a try
If you’ve been hounded by well-meaning friends and family for years to give that blind date a try, there’s no better time than now to try it out. If things don’t work out, you’re both free to walk away.
Get professional matchmakers
If blind dates seem to end badly for you, though, then it might be time to consider hiring the services of a matchmaking agency. With a matchmaking service you get to find matches who have a lot in common with you. Common ground can be the basis you need to move into a more serious relationship.
Look for the right one
There are quite a lot of matchmaking services out there. But are they all the right one for you? Check online for reviews and feedback. These should help you pick the right matchmaking firm to help you turn Valentine’s Day around.
