Whether you love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.
If you’re riding solo, you might be tempted to reach for the tub of ice cream and recreate the scene of Bridget Jones singing “All By Myself” … but we say embrace the Hallmark Holiday for what it is.
Here are our top tips to empower you to have an epic Valentine’s Day.
Time apart from the gram
Scrolling on the gram? Pass. You’ll see vomit-worthy captions, show-off “look what I got” pictures and proposals galore.
It’s not a great way to start Valentine’s Day if you’re trying to start dating again.
Unplug from your socials and focus on your goals rather than living through the lens of others.
You will 100% feel so much better.
Cut your exes off
Valentine’s Day can be the perfect storm to remind us of our past.
Thoughts of “what if I was still with them?” “I wonder what they are doing?” or “who are they with today?” may flood your mind.
Don’t let a day dedicated to love fool you into messaging your ex or dwelling on past Valentine’s Days when you were in a relationship.
Remember: reminiscing about the past will never bring you closer to your future goals.
Make sure you’re ready to date
With that said, ask yourself if you’re ready to date.
If you’re newly single and trying to navigate a tough break up don’t feel pressurised to get back into the dating game.
Dating is only fun if you’re heart and soul is in it.
If it’s not, maybe spend this Valentine’s Day with your friends, family or even take some time out for selfcare and downtime.
Take care of yourself first, love will always wait.
Get clear on what you’re looking for
If you’re single and ready to mingle, go get em’ tiger.
2022 is your year to really get what you want from dating.
Take some time to truly think about what you’re looking for in your next relationship.

Take a new picture
