Single This Valentine’s Day? Enjoy It!


Good Morning Lovelies, 

I’m going to be very frank with you all now! I used to be terrified of being single. Absolutely batshit scared. I used to think I was worthless. The freak show in my group of friends. The one with a lot of love to give but nobody to give it to. I felt horrendous and I think that caused a lot of my mental health problems. 

Whilst watching my friends get boyfriends, have cheeky kisses at parties and flirt with boys, I felt like nobody wanted me. Being told I was the biggest one out of my group of friends completely knocked my confidence and so I didn’t try. Who was going to love me? Well, it turns out I was bloody wrong. I’m lovable, fun and a downright hun! 

Whilst I may not love myself, I appreciate myself more now. And I bloody love being single! Don’t get me wrong, I sometimes wonder if anyone will ever love me. But I don’t let it get to me like it once did. I’m happy in my own company. I’m fine with a little flirt, a cuddle or two, however, I adore my bed to myself and the way I look after me. 

Being single as you reach your 30s is deemed as being horrific. You may as well walk around bearing the sign of the devil to some. Yet, it’s not bad at all! You’re still so young. You still have so much to learn. You still have time to fall in love. 

I’m so sick of people saying you have to have met the one by then. That you have to be married, with the white picket fence outside your house, two kids and a Labrador running around your feet. Why do we still have these ideas? My kind of love is a chaotic one and I love hearing about others chaotic ones too. 

Don’t get me wrong, if you are in a relationship, I love hearing about the love people share as well. It’s a cute curiosity. But ultimately I just love the person. Single or paired up. And that is all that should matter this Valentine’s Day. Just love yourself, love being single or with someone, love the world for the good things in it. Forget the pressures and embrace the fun in your relationship status. 

I’m going to be spending it with a bunch of couples. Just ones on my TV who make me love being single even more! I hope that whatever and whoever you are spending it with are equally fun too lovelies! Just remember being single is okay! Being in a couple is too! Just enjoy life for what it is with whoever it is with! And remember you don’t have to go on an app, island or endless date nights to enjoy it! Fluffy socks, a cosy chair and good times are all you need!
