You have lots to be really grateful for and lots of things to focus on that are positive and leading you in the right direction. If it helps, start a gratitude journal to help keep perspective.” – Ralf Greenway, Facebook

7. Love yourself!
“You have to spend it on a self-lovin’ session. Go do whatever the fuck it is you feel like doing that day. Wanna splash some cash on clothes? Do it. Wanna eat junk food all day? Do it. Wanna stay in and just watch TV? Guess what, Valentine’s day is a day traditionally dedicated to showing the one you love most in life that they are special to you, and the one person in life you should love the most, before anyone else, is yourself.” – @jkmchl
“Just masturbate! Schedule some alone time, preferably in your room. Light some candles, put on some relaxing music, or watch porn, or use your imagination.” – Anonymous

“I took a quick road trip up to La Union and went surfing by myself all day! Best Valentines Day ever!” – Aubrey Santiago, Facebook
“We went to Dublin with my best friend, had a pizza to share in a greasy takeaway and sampled lots of types of whisky before rebuffing all of the French and Irish rugby fans and salsa dancing with each other until the early hours. Best valentines ever.” – @samanthah34dye
Can you feel the love yet? Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, which means the city will soon be overrun with sweet treats, soppy cards and big bunches of red roses.
If you’ve already been struck by Cupid’s arrow, scope out the perfect date spot, hole up with other couples in loved-up bars, pick up a gift from deliciously decadent chocolate shops or catch a film in a romantic cinema. No bother if you don’t have a partner, we certainly don’t discriminate on relationship status (and who’s to say you can’t munch on chocolate and watch a rom-com with a mate?).
