Valentine’s Day Means More ME time!
Valentine’s Day is a day for celebration. I’m celebrating being single and free. There are so many more benefits to being single than there are to being in a relationship. I don’t have to care for anyone, do what I want, hook up with whomever I want, and, above all, no one can tell me what to do or what’s right or wrong except me! In New York City, where I am, there’s like a foot of snow out there, it’s a Friday, and I’ve got the whole day to do exactly what I want. I’ve been planning this day for a very, very long time and I’ve prepared, and prepared some more, and put together this guide of what I’ll be eating, what I’ll be watching, what I’ll be reading, and what I’ll be do-ing, if you know what I mean ;). Here’s my day chronologically:
1. A Hot Bubble Bath
The best day always starts with a steamy, scintillating bubble bath. I mean there’s nothing better than relaxing, eyes closed, and letting the bubbles work their magic. (P.S. Why’s this lady wearing clothes and heels?)
2. A Bloody Mary
While you’re enjoying that steamy bubble bath, make sure you’ve prepared an ice cold bloody mary. Nothing goes together like hot meets cold. Hot on the outside, cold on the inside!
3. Fifty Shades of Grey and a Plush Bathrobe
I need to keep myself mentally excited all day. 50 Shades never fails to get me thinking and dreaming. This is beginning to look like a great, great day!

Yes, this is ABSOLUTELY necessary. It’s your day off, so treat it like one. Enjoy the finer, more oily foods and indulge, indulge, indulge!

I mean how else are you going to watch Orange Is The New Black?! After a couple of episodes, a bunch of lesbian sex, and a lot of Crazy Eyes, you’re going to need to:

Your lunch has given you the -itis and you’re going to need to rest up because as soon as you wake up:
7. Dress Up & Call Your Girlfriends Source: CollegeTimes
The night is just starting. You don’t need to eat dinner- have a few Quest bars, a yogurt, and get drinking. Pop out that bottle of Birthday Cake flavored Vodka you’ve been saving in your freezer. Pop out the Sprite and Coke and Captain Morgan and get pre-gaming!
8. Head To The Club & Dance Source: Eye Candy Lenses
Let it all out, have a great time, and dance, dance, dance. For me there’s nothing like a night of carefree dancing with my best girlfriends to let it all go and de-stress. But, just make sure that by the end of your night you find your:
9. Ryan Gosling
Look around, find your own Ryan Gosling, make eye contact and that’ll seal the deal. Before you take him home, though, make sure he can dance. A good dancer means that he’s also probably pretty good in the sheets. If he isn’t a good dancer, politely walk away and repeat till you find Mr. Suavamente. Once you do:

You enjoy. This is your night, he’s just along for the fun. Do whatever makes you feel comfortable, but also put a little bit of effort into it. He’ll appreciate it and return the favor 100 times back.
After you’re done and he’s either passed out or you’ve sent him home with (or without a number), enjoy a midnight snack:
11. Ben & Jerry’s Red Velvet Ice Cream

A single’s Valentine’s Day needs the essential B&J’s ice cream. I’m not too much of a daredevil and keep within the lines and so this flavor is my go-to. The thing is, everyone loves Red Velvet and so you know you’re getting heaven in a pint cup. Congratulations- that was a SPLENDID Valentine’s Day. You’re the best Valentine you can have! The best part about V-Day this year, though, is that tomorrow is a Saturday and you get to do it all over again if you want! Enjoy ladies!
