Valentine’s Day is in three days, and you’re literally gonna die if you don’t have a date by then. WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO? No. Really. What are you going to do? Luckily, I can save you.
Ask your crush.
I know. It sounds horrible. If it was that easy, you would have done it weeks ago!
But if you don’t, and if they don’t ask you, then you’re gonna beat yourself up about not trying. And if they say no? Then forget about them because they are lame and you don’t need ’em.
Thought this listicle was going to go a different way, huh? Nah. It’s not like that.
I’m not really going to give you tips on how to find a date in three days just for Valentine’s Day because that’s dumb. Don’t get me wrong, you should be guilt-free to celebrate with your S/O as long as you’re not breaking the bank to do it. But if you’re single and crying over it on February 14th, then you need to re-evaluate your priorities because there is real shit that will be happening around the world that day, and your need to be suffocated with roses and gifts will not be one of them.
But, maybe you aren’t looking for a date (applause emoji). Maybe you just want to have fun, too! I get that. So if you changed your mind about desperately needing someone to Us-ie with on Sunday, or if you’re just looking for something to do, read on.
(And if you hate this post because I tricked you, then…I don’t know, man. I’m not trying to be mean, I just want you to be truly happy without depending on social pressures.)
Group Message Your Friends
Not everyone is going to have plans! Trust me. Someone is in the same place you are, and they’re just waiting for some body to step up and text them like “Pizza and a movie? Maybe some karaoke after?” Plus, if you include at least a couple of people, they will be more likely to speak up about being plan-less because they have someone else who is in the same boat. This goes for your family as well. HEY, DON’T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT!
There is nothing wrong with hanging out with your family on Valentine’s. It’s a day of
love, right? No one said it had to be gross, makeout love.
Take Yourself Out, Because More Food for You Anyway.
You know that video of Breanna Youn (below) who blew everyone’s minds because she’s a strong, independent female who doesn’t give a crap if you don’t like her? We need to be more like her. She’s everything. This Sunday, do whatever YOU want whether someone is there or not. Your favorite restaurant? It’s probably booked up. Sorry. But what about your favorite food truck? Go to Happy Hour. People watch. Maker yourself happy, boo boo. That’s the true kind of love anyway, because you can’t love someone else if you don’t love yourself first. So take that, #relationshipgoals
