If You're Single, Practice Self-Care On Valentine's Day Instead Of Moping About It

Why would you mope around about the fact that there has literally been a day designed to remind people they love each other?

Valentine's Day. Some people love it and other people hate it. But why? If you're hating the holiday just because you're single and can't go out and "celebrate loving your significant other," then you've got it all wrong.

If couples need a holiday to remind them that they love each other, they have another issue entirely. The concept of Valentine's Day in and of itself is an odd one.

Why would you mope around about the fact that there has literally been a day designed to remind people they love each other?

Nonetheless, though, Valentine's Day exists, and with that, people are going to be celebrating, so instead of celebrating your love for someone else, celebrate your love for yourself.

Instead of going out, seeing all of the couples around at the booths, why not stay in, order a pizza and watch your favorite show on Netflix for the evening?

You are important and if you're not going to partake in the romance-fest that is Valentine's Day, then you should at least celebrate yourself.

We live in an everchanging and forward motion society. Setting aside time to specifically care for yourself is so important, and if V-Day happens to be that day for you, then great!

Why not even stop by the convenience store and buy chocolates for yourself just because?

The best part of practicing self-care on Valentine's Day? You get to eat, binge-watch Netflix in your pajamas and not have to be social--does it get better than that?

Valentine's Day can make people feel like a failure or an outcast at times when their social media feed is filled with the "happy" couples celebrating, but don't think twice about it.

In fact, unplug from social media for the night if you have to so that you can fully focus on yourself.

Being single on Valentine's Day isn't a crime or something to be upset over. In fact, be happy that you can save money and just focus on what you want to do and focus on yourself.

It's ridiculous that society says you have to have a date with someone on Valentine's Day because the truth is, you don't.

Schedule a date with yourself instead of someone else this year.

Look, I Don't Want Your Boy, But 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' Makes Me Feel Incredible

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.

I have seen so many thoughts and complaints that Ariana Grande's new song, "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored" is shallow.

Some are even saying, "this song just perpetuates everything that is wrong with dating and relationships in society today."

But, girl, I have to disagree.

You see, just because I sing this song at the top of my lungs in both my dorm's shower and alone in my car, I am not going to steal anyone's boyfriend.

I am simply pretending like I am some kind of bad chick that no one should mess with but in reality, I apologize for walking in someone's direction.

And, let's say, if I were to say something lighthearted or friendly to him and he responds with actions that propose cheating, he wasn't a good boyfriend in the first place.

Listen, girls: stop being so insecure.

You have a boyfriend. He loves you. He chose you. If another girl comes by and his eyes dart her way, his heart wasn't in it all the way.

Not everything is deeper than the skin.

Now, let me be clear, I am not saying that it's OK for girls to go around and try to steal boyfriends. Actually, that's a pretty trashy move that no one should attempt. I know it happens, though. I know it is everyone's worst fear.

However, there is no life living within fear of rejection and being left. If those are the things that linger in the back of your mind, you will never taste the freedom of living.

Truly living.

So am I a bad person, considering that 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' is my anthem?

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.

So no, just listening to Ari's new bop doesn't make me a bad person or a boyfriend stealer.

7 Tiny Things College Dudes Do That Give Off Major Small Dick Energy

If you exhibit any of these signs, re-evaluate yourself and your choices.

If you don't know what "small dick energy" means, let me give you the Urban Dictionary definition: "someone who shows off masculinity by being cocky, showing off, overly confident to overcompensate their 4.2 inch fully erect dick."

If you're afraid you might have this tragic disease: let me explain some of the key symptoms:

1. Adding girls you don't know on any social media platform just because you think they're hot.

I never thought friend requests could be so annoying.

2. Messaging said girls with some stupid pick-up-line to start a conversation.

What is this? Tinder?

3. Getting mad and aggressive when said girls don't message you back.

Bonus points for calling them mean names!

4. Getting even angrier when they do message back saying they're not interested.

Your insecurity isn't sexy.

5. Putting others down or not treating others with respect.

If you can't be polite to your servers or other customer service employees, you are the epitome of small dick energy.

6. Cornering girls at bars or parties and making them obviously uncomfortable.

If she doesn't seem interested in the conversation, she's not interested in you. Take a hint and walk away.

7. Any sort of forcefulness, pressure, or prejudice coming from a guy as he's talking to a girl.

BIG indicators of small dick energy and also toxic masculinity!



Now look, I know it sounds like I'm being a bitch, but let me tell you that I, and every other female on this planet regardless of race, sexuality, or anything that differentiates us, has been a victim of men with small dick energy. And it's not fucking cute anymore. In fact, it never was. If anything, it's uncomfortable, it's annoying, and it's concerning.

A girl is not a bitch, a slut, a loser, or any other name you want to throw at her if she doesn't like your advances. Calling her that is probably going to make her want to suck your (small) dick even less than before, if possible. We don't know you, and even if we did, we don't owe you anything. And if your first reaction to rejection is name-calling and blatant aggression, then you are likely a toxic person as it is who's got some deep-seated anger issues that you should probably take care of. And if you think that treating someone like that is okay and don't see anything wrong with that, then you might just be a psychopath, honestly.

Have some class and self-respect, guys, and leave the #smalldickenergy back in 2018.
