When February comes, some of us dreading it. February is the lovey-dovey months. On February 14th, people celebrate Valentine’s Day, the day of love. Alas, not every one of us is blessed with a lovely relationship. This can come as pressure for singles. When everyone else goes for a date, the not-so-lucky feels nothing but lonely.
There’s a quick fix for this. First, is there’s nothing wrong of being single. Singles shouldn’t have to worry about what anyone else says. It’s better to be alone than be in a wrong relationship. Secondly, no one can say that if you’re single, you can’t have a date. Take time to do a self-love activity on Valentine’s day.
Grab a good book (preferably Russian Literature) and eat your favorite chocolate brand. Or spend the night watching Russian movies. Russian movies will keep you entertained while also learning Russian customs and language. If you are in Russia, there are several events in Russia that will help you forget Valentine’s day.
These events are exciting and fun to attend. Pick among the ones aligned with your interest and hobby.
