This coming Saturday is Valentines Day, the day of love. Unless you don’t have a significant other then it’s just Saturday. It’s okay if you don’t have a date for this holiday there are plenty of other things you can do. Like hanging out with your friends. My Valentines Day will be spent babysitting my little brother, cousin, and a family friend’s son. This sounds overwhelming, but my friend is coming to help me out. The boys are both around age thirteen so they can take care of themselves for the most part. We just have to make sure they don’t hurt themselves or burn down the house. My cousin is seven so we have to watch her a little more carefully. I told her we could so hair, makeup, and watch her favorite movies. Needless to say she was pretty excited. I am also thinking about getting some ice cream that way we have something to eat while we watch our movie. The friend that is helping me babysit is also spending the night afterwards because her parents will be in San Diego for her younger sisters soccer tournament. This is just one example of something you can do if you’re single on Valentines Day. If you are not required to babysit you can go out places with your closest friends. Maybe instead of going to the movies and seeing the romantic movie that everyone and their date will be seeing you and your friends could go to an action or comedy movie. If you’re not okay with the feeling of surrounding yourself with people who are in love then you can stay in and plan whatever you and your friends like doing best. Remember that just because you are single on Valentines Day doesn’t mean no one loves you. You have your friends and family. And it’s okay if your mom is the only one who gets you a Valentines Day gift because that is actually really cute.
