VD: It's Not Just for Lovers Anymore
So, yeah, Valentine's Day is coming and I seriously don't want to hear one more whiney person talk about "Singles Awareness Day" (ever notice that the acronym is "SAD"?") Cause I've got something to say to you "single" folks out there. And that's this: Get over it.I know way too many single gals and fellas that stay single because they are so focused on it. They complain about being single. They rage against Valentine's Day. Being single becomes their identity. This self pity perpetuates a vicious circle. You're single, so you're focused on you, which makes you unappealing, which makes you stay single.Whatever you do on Saturday the 14th, don't sit at home and have movie night with your single friends talking about how much "Love stinks". Words are very powerful. Attitudes are too. Don't keep affirming these mantras, cause they suck the love right out of you.You see, Valentine's Day is about LOVE, so, LOVE somebody. Call your Grandma, babysit for your not-single friends. Buy your nieces and nephews some of those awful pink and red stuffed animals and more chocolate than they can eat in a week. Volunteer at a shelter, or soup kitchen, or political campaign. Do something for someone at church. Get out there and focus on others. When you're focused on others, you become less self serving and way more attractive.Take my advice and by this time next year, you'll be beating off suitors with a stick.
