IT’S VALENTINE’S DAY. Or for me, it’s Sunday. If you must know, I have had the most wonderful Valentine’s Day (weekend) yet. Because being single is awesome. Here are 18 reasons why.
Snacks in bed
Midnight snacks with no judgement – hello, yes please.
Yeahhhhhh, sorry. I do not want to talk about my day or to hear about yours.
Netflix Binge in Peace
Don’t have to worry about waiting for my SO to watch 4-5 episodes of [current Netflix] addiction. This is a freedom I am not sure I will ever be ready to give up
Whole Bed is Yours
I love my bed. MY bed. Which means I can take up as much room as I please. And I never have to worry about someone stealing my blankets. Pillows over boyfriends, always.
Only shave your legs when you want to
Yeahhhhhhhh, sorry for this friends (and future mates). It’s winter and shaving your legs is ANNOYING and time consuming. And, I simply ain’t got time for that.
Get whatever you want on your pizza
Ok people (and ex boyfriends everywhere), mushrooms. don’t. belong. on. pizza. If I must eat them, I will (half-heartedly) consume them on a salad. But I refuse to let them ruin pizza EVER AGAIN.
Fights with you girlfriends are nothing
Fights are never fun, but I’d rather fight with a girlfriend than a boyfriend any day of the week
Go to bed when you want
“We” don’t have a “bedtime”. If I want to go to bed at 6 p.m. or 2 a.m, I can. Because GUESS WHAT – I can do whatever I want.
Do whatever you want
Let me repeat – I can do whatever I want, when I want, with who I want.
Make out with who ever you want
Spend money on numbero uno
Need I say more? Sure, I like presents – but I don’t need a man to buy them for me.
Only laugh at jokes that are truly funny
I’ve wasted too many “laughs” in my day. Now I only laugh when I want to, damnit.
Take as long as you want to get ready
If I want to try on every outfit in my closet, I am going to. And NOBODY is going to tell me to “hurry up” when it comes to false eyelash application. One does not simply “hurry up.”
Focus on your career/side hustle/whatever you want
Significant others require a lot of work and attention. I’m too busy hustling.
All the closet space
The idea of having to give up my coveted closet space honestly haunts my dreams. Not today, sir.
You are the center of your universe, always.
I am my own sun and stars and moon of my life. (Please note, willing to make exception for Khal Drogo look-alikes)
Only have to worry about loving myself
