Being Lonely is so overrated, its 2015! When Loneliness knocks on your door and won't leave you , call the police and report harassment because "Ain't nobody got time for that !"* P.s don't tell the police I told you to call, I will deny ever saying that.
As we are all aware , we are now in the month of January and as if not getting a New Years kiss wasn't enough, February is just around the corner. Which means good ol' Valentine is very much near.Its about to be that time of year, where you see a couple of lovebirds at every corner you turn and every channel you flip through, and being single just straight up sucks.
Unfortunately for those of us , that cupids arrows seems to have missed out on .You dread this time of the year,where it seems everyone is in a relationship but you, and you convince yourselves that you're probably going to die alone with a bunch of cats by your side.
Well don't lose hope yet. There's still time, no need to rush things. Love is a beautiful thing, and its even better when its between two people who are meant to be together ,at the right time. Besides just because others are in a relationship and are having fun doesn't mean you can't too.
Fear not, here are a few tips about how to deal with being single around this time. And hopefully by the end of this , you will realize that maybe being single is not so bad. At least enjoy it while you are.
Lets start things with the number one way to not feel so lonely on these upcoming months.
1.Remember Netflix is always Available for you at all times
Instead of making time for "Bae", you have all the time in the world to just binge watch all of your favorite shows when loneliness hits. Its a wonder that paying just $8.99 a month , can be very useful whenever you need it.There is nothing like the warmth of your bed as you place all your pillows to be the perfect prop for the comfort of your head as you laugh at something you just saw on the screen. Or The feeling of being in your favorite onesies with a cup of chocolate tea next to you in the dark , as you get comfortable and warm to experience all the love,heartbreaks, and turmoils of catching up on all your favorite shows . Scandal ,Vampire Diaries, Teen Wolf,American Horror Story and The Walking Dead anyone? *sips tea*.
At the end of the day , just remember that at least Netflix won't break your heart( well maybe the ending of your favorite show just might break your heart but ),it will always be faithful to you, supplying you with endless episodes of your favorite
shows at all times. You can watch it as much as you want.
But if Netflix doesn't cut it , then..
2. Have a Movie Night with some of your other single friends
Go out and go see a new film out at the theaters with some of your good friends who might also be single. It's nice to be in company of others who might be going through , just what you are going through. After all you never know who you might run into at the theaters *wink face*. There are lots of good movies coming to the theater these next few weeks, Fifty shades of Grey is coming in the Theaters soon by the end of this month and that new Jennifer Lopez movie "Boy next door " seems to be very interesting. Set a date on your calendar and get your swerve on.
3. Have a Girls Night in.
Why not call over a few of your closest girlfriends, get in your most comfiest pajamas and watch all of your favorite movies you can think of. Whether you live at home with your parents , in a dorm room or in your own apartment, girls night in is always possible.
What better way to get over the fact that you are single than watching all of your favorite classic movies with your best girl friends and enjoying each others company. You don't need a guy to have fun. It's much better than watching it by yourself anyway.
4. Have a Girls Night out
There's nothing like putting on your highest pair of killer heels,curling your hair, wearing your sexiest outfit and going out into town with your friends, after all just because you're single doesn't mean you still can't have fun with your girlfriends. Besides its been proven that dressing up and going out feeling confidence and happy, is a definite mood booster that reduces stress and depression. It can also make you much more youthful and increases your chances of meeting a nice guy along the way too ;)
5.Guys Night Out
Can't forget about my single guys too. Everyone deserves a night out and what better way , than to call up all your closest buddies for a night out in town, with your freshest kicks and your head full of some corny pick up lines , that will for sure have some girls falling over for you. Besides it might be just what you need to change your single status. Maybe you can even brag and tell your kids one day that their mom, chose you out of all your other friends , because you were the "Nice Guy" .You never know. You can always expect the unexpected in this life.
6. Find a new Hobby/Something to do in Your free time
Having a boyfriend/girlfriend can take up a lot of personal time. As if taking care of yourself wasn't hard enough,you now have to cater to someones else needs. It's a miracle you are able to juggle time with your family, school, work, personal care , and be able to still have time for your boyfriend. This is one of those moments ,when being single can have its perks.
Since you are single,you have some free time on your hands which may seem boring and lonely at first. But you can find lots things about yourself and things to do that you didn't even know you could . Doing some of these things will keep you busy that you won't even have time to dwell on the fact that you're single.
And Last but not the least..
7. Pamper Yourself/ Enjoy Yourself
You don't need a girl or a boy to pamper you. And you surely do not need to be in a relationship in order to recieve good things nor to have fun, at least with just yourself. You can do that your own. Girls and even Guys, If you feel like eating a box of chocolate , go buy it yourself, why not? You want that bracelet or necklace, save up and buy it for yourself as a present you deserve it. You feel like dressing up in your new clothes and hitting town, why not .And Guys if you want to buy a new pair Nikes or Jordans, a new video game or whatever floats your boat, you don't need a girl to buy it for you or tell you to buy it. You can do some of these things on your own.Just because you are single doesn't mean you can't look good and feel good. Why should you wait until you are in a relationship to do nice things for yourself. Do something nice for yourself because you deserve it.
At the end of the day , I hope that you also realize that all of these things that I have mentioned , can be done even if you are in a relationship. Being single and being in a relationship can be exactly how you choose for it to be. Being in a relationship is not a must if it hasn't happened to you yet. It is simply things that makes us human and part of every day life. You can either choose to enjoy the single life or cry, complain and go into depression mode over it. Live everyday as if it were your last, don't waste it wishing for something that isn't meant to happen right now.But honestly though I hope this post helps and that those who are reading this and are single are able to see the perks of the Single life and see that its not so bad. After all, Cinderella had to lose her shoe in order to find Prince charming and Beauty had to fall in love with a Beast in order to get her Prince .Love and relationships aren't easy, You have to make sure you are mentally, physically and emotionally ready for it and It can happen to each and everyone of us when we least expect it. But until then enjoy and have fun being young, old, silly, crazy and a beautiful you.
P.s :.I hope you still have your bottle of Lysol in handy , because love is about to be in the air and just in case *sips tea* xoxox <3
- Until next time.
