Okay ladies now let’s get in formation.
Cuz we slay.
Another year single, another year ready for a pringle. Am I right?
Look, there are only so many ways that I can try to make you feel better about being single with me. Over the years I have written about what not to do to your single friends, I’ve given you the option of dating fictional men instead of real men, I’ve sent you a Valentine with David Tennant, I’ve made you collages, I’ve made romantic book lists.
I’m one hell of a Valentine if you ask me. Because for the people I care about I also bake things and drink wine with them and have a Galentine’s day if it’s on a weekend.
Damn. I’m so romantic and I didn’t even notice.
This year though, I thought I would try something different.
JUST KIDDING THAT’S THE WORST. *laugh crying emoji*
Here’s what I would like to say to you this year:
Treat yo self.
That’s right. I’ve decided (since I’ve turned 30 and ain’t nobody putting a ring on this finger any time soon.) that I will date myself, so to speak. In that I now buy myself relatively expensive presents for my big events.
Because I’m going to die alone in a pile of dogs. #livingthedream
This year I have my eye on a sweet purse that has bananas on it. Because I’m an adult.
You know you’re awesome, you have to by now because I’ve been convincing you for years. You hustle like a champ and all the good things will come your way. And if they don’t, then they weren’t meant for you.
Love isn’t something that is to be forced, it will show up when it is meant to happen and the only thing to do in the meantime is live your life the way you want to because someday you’ll be knee deep in a relationship and these days are the ones you’ll look back on and think “Yeah. I set myself up to be who I want to be and that’s what got me here.”
Or you’ll think “Man. I miss when I could sit around with no pants on and I only had to forage for food for one person.” If you’re lucky, your future significant other will also like not wearing pants while watching TV and will be the kind of person who buys surprise pizzas instead of flowers.
Because flowers are the goddamn dumbest thing to bring a person. Stop bringing things home that can die, bring home things we can eat. (I know you feel me ladies!)
Romantic entanglements aren’t the only things that matter in life. You do you girl!
Man, sometimes I get really serious.
Probably because I hate when I chirp myself for being single so I get mad when I think others are doing it to themselves! Good thing I have some friends who are good with throwing encouragement at me like it’s a confetti parade and give me a hard slap of reality when I need it.
Happy Valentines Day you sons of bitches.
Use the search button to find other such inspirational posts from years of yore. It’s worth it. But I’m biased because I wrote them.
