7 Reasons Valentine’s Day should be a Singleton’s Dream

February 14, 2014


It’s that time of year again. Pink and red roses have scattered the sidewalks, heart-shaped boxes brimming with chocolate truffles are being sold by the boatload, and advertisements everywhere have been bedazzled with visions of intimate candlelit dinners and peeks of the hottest date nights around town.

Valentine’s Day is officially upon us.

For anyone not in a relationship, it’s usually a time of slight pain. Those display racks featuring adorable fuschia frocks and sexy stilettos intended for the romantic night out are cringeworthy, and the aisles of cheesy Hallmark cards are often nausea-inducing.

But this year, it’s time to look at it in a different light. After all, beneath its consumerist exterior, Valentine’s Day is meant to be a time celebrating love – in any sense of the word. As a result, we’ve found 7 reasons to be perfectly ecstatic about the Cupid-crafted night – whether in a relationship or not.

1. It’s an excuse to hang out with your friends.

Valentine’s Day? Try Galentine’s Day. Girls just wanna have fun, anyway. And they know how to do it right when they’re surrounded by their favorite people in the world.


Valentine’s Day is rigged with restaurants and shops competing with one another in the hopes of making the most money. Take advantage of the offers and have a rockin’ dinner for half what you might normally pay – and spend the extra cash on a killer new pair of jeans!

3. It’s a reason to flaunt that dress you splurged on at Topshop last week.

Um, why not? Hit the town and make those men on dates envious that it’s not YOU sitting across from them.

4. It’s a night of energy.

There will be millions of people out and about. Enjoy the energy that comes with it and breathe in the moment!

5. It’s a chance to remind yourself of how awesome you are.

Valentine’s Day is supposed to be about telling the people you care about that they’re awesome, so obviously that should mean YOU, too. Treat yourself and splurge on something fancy.

6. Chocolate galore.

There’s always an excuse to eat chocolate, but this is one of the best ones you’ll get all year. PLUS, THERE WILL BE BAJILLIONS OF CHOCOLATE TREATS BEING SOLD THAT ONLY COME IN FEBRUARY. Chocolate-covered strawberries, anyone?

7. You don’t need a holiday to tell you how great you are.

After all, February 14th is just a number on a calendar square.


From all of us at WeKnowTheDJ, Happy Valentine’s Day! We’re sending lots of love, doting affection, and virtual chocolates your way! Thank you for the love you continue to show us 🙂
