Let’s cut right into it. You dread this day. It’s like any other ordinary day. Right? This day is overrated and very dramatized to the point where if you don’t have a Valentine your friends question your life.
You’re sick of hearing “Who’s your valentine this year?” If you have none.
But that’s okay, I hope you downloaded the new Imaginary Boyfriend app to play pretend for just a day.
Don’t know what I’m talking about? Check out the link! It’s available on all phones and I believe there is an invisible girlfriend one as well.
The messages appear in your inbox as a valid message from someone and look as such:
It looks real doesn’t it? This will keep all your friends and family off your back for a day!
I don’t have the app simply because I don’t need it. Does that mean I have a boyfriend? If you know me, then you know the answer to that. 🙂
The app is quite interesting but aside from impressing the world, what else is there to do?
How many people are going to see 50 shades of Grey this weekend?
Come on where’s the show of hands? 😀
It’s a movie I am on the fence about because I LOVE the books and while I am excited they made it into a movie (I’m going to go see it eventually); I am not excited about the actor & actress chosen to play Anastasia and Christian.
However, Go spend V-Day with your GIRLFRIENDS and at night dedicate it to your boyfriend or husband. As for my singles, nothing wrong with spending time with yourself or go speed dating (if you’re that adventurous).
I specifically titled this “Renovate Your Valentine’s Day” because you should feel good about doing something for yourself for once as well as a new take on the “holiday”. The movies and the boyfriend app are typical things to do during this special event, but don’t forget to love yourself first!
The chocolate, flowers, dinner thing is sooooo old! Leave it in the past! Do something different. Hint at something new ladies. Whether it’s the favorite pair of shoes you have on your wishlist or just going to a craft store to make each other something, do it! Valentine’s Day isn’t all about SPENDING MONEY and if you DO spend money, spend it wisely.
After all, it is ONE day and it should be treated as a regular day because you love people every day even if you don’t say it and even if you don’t necessarily show it everyday. If you buy a gift, make it worth it and not just because it is that one day out of the year where all the commercials, family, friends, co-workers, and sales push you to buy everything to make her happy.
Ladies the men deserve some love too! Cooking is cool as well as expected, but what about his favorite tickets to a show or a game?
Love works both ways.
Love has no boundaries even if your V-Date is your mom, dad, cousin, brother or sister. Just make it fun.
Remember single ladies and single men, there are plenty activities you can do to enjoy V-Day. As I mentioned earlier there’s dating, or you can work (if you grind all the time), play video games, watch Netflix, or spend family time in the house with the ones you love on the daily.
Even bake those sugar cookies everyone loves so much!
What am I doing for Valentine’s Day you ask? Spending it with the people I love the most! My “adopted into” family! 🙂
Turn the typical expected Valentine’s Day into something brand new. Then tell me what you did! Haha
Happy Valentine’s Day!!
Here’s some V-DAY humor:
