Love is definitely in the air; sappy love songs are blasted off the airwaves, our favorite cafes are filled with paper hearts, scattered all around our malls are styrofoam hearts that seem to have been bathed in red glitters, we receive a dozen heart-shaped pillows on our Facebook walls, and our friends start wearing matching pink and red ensembles. For somebody attached, this would be a welcome experience; something that would help them get in the mood for the love month.
For one who is single, it is a whole different story. It makes them realize how desperately single they are, and how there isn’t a place for their breed during this month. Singletons retaliate by telling everybody how much they hate V-Day; balloons, flowers, chocolates and all. But the truth remains that all they hate is the feeling that they can’t truly get into the season because they don’t have a passport to go to Lovesville a.k.a a partner. To make up for it, here are some things to remind you, my dear singleton partyphile, how lucky you are to be single.
