I’m calling out every single young woman out there right now. Yes, you! We’ve heard it over and over again, the single girl who goes on for a suspiciously long time talking about how she’s totally over the whole trend, how her last relationship (or near relationship) was a complete sham and how this year is all about her. How do I know this? Because I’ve been that girl. I promise not to recite what we’ve already heard. I’m not going to say that I don’t believe in Valentine’s day in an attempt to make it less depressing for myself. I won’t say that Valentine’s day should be about more than just couples and that it’s also about family and friends and self-love.

Let me start by saying that, whether you’re in a relationship or whether you’re single, I hope that you’re making the most of today; be happy, be productive, and share the love.
