A very interesting article on "Surviving a single Valentines Day"

I read this very interesting article on Stuff Nation, and I thought it was something worth sharing:


Surviving a single Valentines Day

I know it's difficult being out of a relationship when everyone else appears to be receiving chocolates and roses, but simply joining up with other friends, single or otherwise, can not only help your attitude and sense of loneliness, but you can also have a good time without a partner...
2. Plan something fun. If you think the day might be a downer for you, plan ahead to do something. Keep busy. Plan an outing. Have friends round. Avoid all the couples-focused goings-on and try to do something that will keep you busy and happy...
3. Work on your single status. OK, you're single and not altogether enjoying it. But try and plan something for the future, too. Work on what you might do to change your single status. Do you want to work on something about yourself - your hobbies (meeting more people), your body (fitness, weight loss, and style changes), your conversation (striking a more confident manner with people you don't know)...
4. Give yourself a treat. You deserve it, after all. Buy wine, a tasty treat, or a special movie. Spend a little money on yourself and pat yourself on the back for all the good things you are and the good things that lie ahead...
5. Have the right attitude. Having a positive attitude and good self-belief is basic to feeling great about who you are and where you're going...
