It can be tough on Valentine’s Day at school, especially if you aren’t in a relationship. You see the candy, the love notes, and the public displays of affection and become depressed. However, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a traumatic time, even if you’re single and lonely.
First, don’t get too caught up in the need for a boyfriend or girlfriend. Valentine’s Day is just one day out of the year. While being single can be frustrating, there’s no reason February 14th has to be better or worse than any other day. Ignore your friends if they can’t stop talking about how in love they are. Let’s see where they are by March 14th.
Second, don’t get all whiny or needy, even if you feel upset. You don’t want to hear all about how in love your friends are. Well, the same is true of your emotional drama. No one cares to hear about how lonely and depressed you are. Suck it up and be a big boy or girl. You can handle it!
Third, try to make the day fun. Not only will it take your mind off Valentine’s Day, but it’ll show others that even though you may not be in a relationship, you’re still fun, happy, and worth knowing. After all, no one wants to date a whiny mess, even if you are devastated you don’t have anyone on what is supposedly the most romantic day of the year.
Finally, if you don’t have a boyfriend or girlfriend on Valentine’s Day, then actually go out and get one! It may seem tough, but lots of people do it all the time. It’s really just a matter of having the right techniques, skills, and traits.
Is it hard? Maybe. But the best things in life are often a little difficult. But, the reward is still great. Check out our dating and other category pages to find out ways to get dates and be more popular. You’ll be glad you did!
