Valentine’s Humour: Will You Marry Me? Plus 5 Tips to Surviving Vday as a Single Person!

Two days to Valentine’s Day and I received this email about being single.

Drag to the alter

Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl “Will you marry me?”

The girl said, “NO!”

And the girl lived happily ever after and went shopping, dancing, camping, drank martinis, always had a clean house, never had to cook, had sex with whomever she pleased…did whatever the hell she wanted, never argued, didn’t get fat, travelled more, had many boyfriends, many girlfriends too, saved more money, had all the hot water to herself, and never had to put down the toilet seat. She watched chick flicks, never football, never wore fricken lacy lingerie that went up her ass, had high self esteem, never cried or yelled, felt and looked fabulous in sweat pants, and swore all the time.


And as funny as it was the first time reading, Valentine’s Day has one of the highest suicide rates of the year… It seems being single is a hard thing for many to handle so here is a list of “single things to do” on Valentine’s Day.

1) Get all your single friends together and celebrate your singleness. Throw a party that does not involve the lovey dovey ones and let everyone know that there is no pressure. Have great food, great conversation and just have a great time getting together and sharing.

2) Spend the day with family. Surrounding yourself with family usually cures all that ails… unless of course your family does not know how to put the FUN in dysfunctional.

3) Volunteer at a Seniors home, Hospital or shelter. Giving time to others usually gives more back to you.

4) Affirm that being single is OK. Own it, accept it, believe it… cause you know what? It is OK.

5) Send yourself flowers to your office or workplace. Why not?? If you really want to fit in, then this is an excellent way to do that. If anyone asks, say they are from a secret admirer. And who to better admire you than you… no one needs to know.

But above all, do something special for yourself. Indulge in your favourite movies, order from your favourite restaurant, have a glass of vino… OK no drunk dialing allowed and treat yourself as the special person that you are.

If no one else is doing it, why shouldn’t you do it for yourself? After all it is only one Hallmark moment that too shall pass.
