If you’re single and you don’t want to get caught up in all the cornball, Valentine’s Day mushy-ness then avoid the mall at all costs. I remember making this mistake back in high school. I was heading to a volunteering job and killing time at the Bramelea City Center while I waited for a bus to Mississauga. I was single and the mall was littered with red and pink, balloons, teddy bears, chocolates, flowers and of course young love *gag*. This type of stuff has little effect on me now, but like I said,
If you’re single and easily susceptible, stay the hell away from the mall on Valentine’s Day.
If you don’t have a romantic Valentine, suck it up because you have the unconditional love of someone even better; your BFF. Here’s why she (or he) makes such a valuable date:
You don’t need to impress her but you want to.
You get your hair did, put your face on and wear your sexiest outfit for her. Why? Because she deserves the hottest date. Period. And who better to give that to her than you. Plus, she will tell you if your outfit looks jacked and you don’t have to spend the whole night wondering about it.
You don’t need to try to be authentic; you just are.
Who better to practice being yourself with than the person who already knows all your secrets? You’re guaranteed to get some affection at the end of the night because to her, you’re the bossest-ass chick. No need to be sneaky about what you want. You want a hug or you need a cuddle? She’s got you! Bonus, you don’t have to spend anytime questioning if she’s going to call you because you’ll probably already have a text from her about the cute guy she saw in the parking lot by the time you get back to your car.
A date with her can make you more self-aware.
Two sexy, single ladies, smiling and laughing without a care in the world are fire. Zero in on the essence of what that feels like so you can push those good vibes to the forefront when you’re out with a dude. It’s also good practice for you to be present. You’re playing with your phone or not paying attention to her? She’ll call you on it. You get experience focusing your attention on one person with live, unfiltered feedback.
If nothing else, you’re always guaranteed a good time with your BFF. What better way to celebrate a day dedicated to love than to spend it with her? The person who has been there with you through all of the trials and tribulations in your search and who loves you all the more for it.
