Did You Know? According to an Ipsos poll conducted on behalf of Netflix, movies and television shows are the top two icebreakers for a first date. Show-compatibility is important, with 13% saying they would ask someone out based solely on mutual interest in a TV show. ( v i a )
Valentine’s Day is for everyone. I fucking love February. The red, pink, white, with flowers, hearts, wine & chocolate? Hallmark Holiday? YUUUUUUUUHSsss please!
Around this time of year I start hearing Valentine’s Day haters, so I swing opposite – I’m a Valentine’s Day ride or die lover. I know I say this every year, but having a reminder to verbally express how much you appreciate or love someone is important. I know people don’t do it enough, because it’s impossible to do it enough! We’re stuck in routines that create tunnel vision unless we have moments that break us out. Enter >> Valentine’s Day.
Seriously, it might be my favorite holiday. And I celebrate all month.
Valentine’s Day, when you’re Single –
Being single for Valentine’s Day might be better than being in a relationship. It’s very unpredictable. I spent many Valentines Day’s single & I had a fantastic time. The chance of having a date with someone you just met, celebrating with your precious doggie, appreciating a close friendship, taking time for yourself to watch Netflix << All options sound like a fucking dream. There’s nothing like being single, you have so much freedom to make choices for yourself & Valentine’s Day is a reminder of that. YOU can decide how you want to love YOU. On a first date, watching movies, or hanging with a friend? Your choice. Relationship peeps have to stare at the same face they had dinner with last night + the added pressure of making it special (HA!). Give your friends a little Valentine’s Day love by bringing them a cake, or a new bracelet, or sparkly shoes. I love giving my girlfriends little gifts & messages. Valentine’s Day is the time to be a little cheesey & buy some cute, shiny gifts. Love is most definitely not only between two people in a relationship, it should be spread to everyone.
