With Valentine's Day around the corner ‘love is in the air’, as all the millions of advertisements claim. Irrespective of whether you have a valentine or not, one can spend the day just celebrating the spirit of love that this day epitomises.

So don’t mope around depressed just because you don’t have a special someone. Show your friends that you care about them. Being in love with your friends and life in general can give one an incredible high. There is nothing wrong with being single.

Don’t mope around depressed just because you don’t have a special someone. Show your friends that you care about them. Being in love with your friends and life in general can give one an incredible high. There is nothing wrong with being single.  

However, one does go through a phase when the thought of being single can be depressing. When you’re around people holding hands and locking lips, looking happy seems like a crime. But stop and realise that, in retrospect, being single has several advantages.

At the rate at which couples fall out these days, you should count your blessings that you are not part of that mess. Couples fight over trivial issues, step on each other’s toes. Why be in such a quandary?

Singledom gives one the freedom to hook the many colourful and interesting fish in the sea. Variety, as they say, is the spice of life, and when better to taste it than when single.

Here is what you can do ? Get the gang together and visit all the places with lots of special Valentine’s offers ? Make fun of all the ‘romantic’ couples being sickingly lovey-dovey in hidden nooks at restaurants and bars ? Get out the wine, order in some nice food and just relax with a movie with all your single pals ? Buy yourself or your best friend something special with all the large discounts on offer.
