The most logical advice to men and women alike would be ... take comfort in the fact that you are not alone. Plenty of people have to make it through Valentine’s Day on their own.
That in its own should chase away your hopelessness. Somewhere out there are women just as hopeless as you. With a little effort and a little courage you could meet one of them and not be alone this time next year.
In the meantime, try not to feel blue, there are some things you can do to cheer yourself up.
To start off with, call your buddies and organize a BYOB party. No in this instance BYOB does not stand for Bring Your Own Baby, it stands for Bring Your Own Beer. You can supply the snacks.
You could watch the football match, a basketball game, or a NASCAR race and cheer to your heart’s content.
In case you don’t feel like staying in, go out for drinks. Whether you go to a sports bar or a club, the moment you’re out there and in company you’re bound to feel better. Sitting alone at home is not going to lift your spirits.
How about going to the movies? Without a girlfriend who wants to see some sappy love story you can pick and chose what you want to see. Whether you like war, horror or mystery, you are in control.
In the event that the guys are not available and you don’t feel like going out, I’m sure you can find something on TV or something to listen to. Pluck out a CD of Nickelback, Bon Jovi or Aerosmith, put on headphones so you can crank up the volume and engage in some good old-fashioned head banging. That should chase the cobwebs away.
Don’t let the absence of a lady get you down. There are plenty of ladies out there who hate spending Valentine’s Day alone just as much as you do. The trick is to meet some them, which shouldn’t be too hard.
Women’s magazines are full of advice on how to meet men. If she’s looking for someone special, and you’re looking for someone special, it’s only a matter of time before you meet each other.
