Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and for many singles in Metro Manila, it can either be a moment for celebration or a moment of suffering. As for me, I have been single for too long and I cannot see any downside to it. With that said, let me share with you 5 Advantages of Being Single this Valentine’s Day!

  1. No gift? No drama!
    Seriously guys, this may sound like a cliche but couples really do fight over gifts. Forgetting to get your special someone a bouquet of flowers or a jewelry on Valentine’s Day can be a big trouble! Luckily for us, singles, we no longer have to worry about that! And let’s be real, it is not easy to buy your special someone a gift. It may take us hours walking around the mall looking for that perfect item because an internal dialogue keeps on playing in our head, “Is he/she going to like this?”

  2. Reserve your Energy
    Of course, it does not end at buying your partner a gift. You also have to take them out on a date! And it should no longer come as a surprise that fine dining restaurants get fully booked in as early as a month before February 14! May I just add that dining in fancy restaurants can get a pricey too? But hey, everything for your special someone, right?

    It could even end up in a disaster.

  3. Wednesday Humpday Traffic
    Would you take a look at that? Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday this year! Before we start thinking of something else here about Wednesday being a Humpday, what I was trying to say was it’s just no fun having a date knowing that you will still have to report to work the following day. As we all know, EDSA does not pick a day to get people stuck in it, not even this special day!

    Yup. That pretty much sums it all up.

  4. Treat Yo Self!
    Don’t you just love it whenever you think of a plan to do at the end of the day after your work? Go to the gym, go see a movie, or watch a new show on Netflix. The joys of being free to do whatever you want! Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and you won’t have to worry about reserving a table for two at a fancy restaurant, or buying a special gift, why don’t you treat yourself instead! You deserve it!

    Just stay at home and treat yo self!

  5. You are not alone!
    There are over 7 billion people in the world and a huge chunk of it are singles! You are not alone! Don’t fret about being one this Valentine’s Day. It’s not like the world is going to turn on you on that day for having no partner. In fact, why don’t you take this opportunity to meet other single individuals! Remember what the say? There’s tons of fish in the water!

    Ah, the idea of meeting someone special this valentine's Day!!
