8 Reasons Not to Have a Valentine

I'm gonna cut to the chase on this one. If you have a potential Valentine, you have approximately 8 days to kick him to the curb. Ready- aaaand go. Here are 8 reasons not to have a Valentine, one for each day leading up to the 14th. It's all about the pros and cons. And in this case, the cons win.

1. Save $$$
Think of how much money you'll be saving. You won't have to buy him a gift or a cheesy Hallmark card. Seriously though, that money could be used for far more important things than what? Cologne? A shirt? Think about it, you're only buying those things to improve him. He's definitely not worth your time if 1) he smells and 2) he has no sense of style. Why not improve yourself instead by using that money for a manicure? Better yet, you could put it in your savings account. Think of how responsible you'll feel! Or...you could pick out a super sexy outfit and see what cupid has in store for you. Okay so I guess you don't really save any money per say but still, you'll get a manicure or new little black dress out of it.

2. Spend time with your true loves 
Yeah, your friends are more fun than guys anyway. You can be as crazy/weird/wild as you wanna be around them and they still (surprisingly) accept you. Plus they're always there for you no matter what. Unless you still wear crocs, then you're on your own.

3. No pressure
No need to worry about reservations, what to wear, what to say, how you look. You won't have to spend time analyzing every little thing he does and says. Who cares what it means that he got you white roses instead of red? Or that he was two whole minutes late? You have no one to think about but yourself today, baby.

4. Be a secret admirer
If you have your eyes on someone, there's no better way to secretly tell them how cute you think they are, or how you love the way they always slip late into class at exactly 10:32 AM every day with the same golf sweatshirt and baseball hat. Oh and how they do that adorable thing with their hair.  Nope, not obsessed, just observant.

5. Why have one when you can have two?
If you go into Valentine's Day without a designated Valentine, you can technically have as many guys as you want. The more the merrier.

6. Jump start your diet
You'll dodge the box of chocolates your Valentine would inevitably give you. Doesn't he know it would totally ruin your diet? Guys these days...

7. You'll have plenty of time in the future to have a Valentine
Think of how many years you'll be stuck with the same Valentine year after year? Enjoy Valentine's Day while you can before you're restricted to a boyfriend or husband. Ew.

8. It's a Thursday. 
'Nuff said.

Alright, that might have possibly been a tad bit extreme. The point is, whether you're flying solo or not, enjoy the big 2-14 however you want. If you're single, remember- you were alone 364 other days, what makes this one different? And if you're taken, he better get you those 20 karat gold earrings. Just kidding again. If you're taken, enjoy all that lovey-dovey stuff.
