Valentine’s Day presents an annual love test for singles and couples. V-day reminds us to rev up romance and live up to the best qualities in a romantic relationship. What if your dating or long-term relationship falls flat? What if you’ve recently lost love in a break up or death of a beloved? What if you waiting to meet your first love match? Find out how the best ideals of Valentine’s Day may be your love guide to a happy relationship.
Why do some couples break up before Valentine’s Day?
If you’re in a dull dating relationship without prospects for fun with a future, then you can’t celebrate the best in romance with this partner on V-day without faking it. The honorable thing to do is be honest and free each other to find a more compatible love match.
If you’re in a lifeless long-term relationship, you may be inspired to spark feelings of romance on this special night each year, and forget about romance the rest of the year. Or you may ignore the whole ritual of celebrating Valentine’s day with your partner.
Either way, your relationship is in trouble. It needs a big boost of fun, not only on V-day but every day, if you want to rekindle joy in being together.
If you’re in a happy relationship, chances are you will find fun ways to express romantic love on V-day. Happy couples also find ways to share some joy with your partner every day. So carry on, knowing you are a love guide for other couples.
What does V-day mean to singles?
If you are suffering through a bad break up or the death of your beloved, then being alone on Valentines Day can be very painful as you grieve lost love. You can ease your grief when you find ways to celebrate the love that remains. Here’s what helped me do this.
Going solo on Valentine’s Day after my long marriage ended in divorce could have prompted a pity party–if I hadn’t learned to see it with new eyes:
V-day is a good time to remember the love that survives the death of a relationship. It’s a day to give thanks for all the faces of love in your life, so you are bathed in feelings of love. It’s a reminder to fall in love again with yourself by revving up your best qualities and reviving your best dreams. Your healthy self love attracts love like a love magnet.
As you radiate love, it is easier to let go of lost love and feel free to love again. It also makes it easier to attract your best love match. Valentine’s Day can inspire singles in every stage of life to take positive steps toward love and watch your life change in wonderful ways.
I signed up for my first dating site when I was alone on Valentine’s night for the 3rd year in a row after my divorce. Then I met extraordinary men on 3 continents and wrote a book about my adventures in starting a new life and loving again. I also started a dating site and travel club for positive, optimistic singles.
Can pessimists join?
Since like attracts like, it is rare that optimists would be attracted to pessimists. Pessimism is a block to love. And our Love Guides help pessimists embrace new attitudes and action plans to find love and create a happy relationship.
I’m thankful that the best ideals of romance on Valentine’s Day have inspired me to reinvent my life and love life, and to help singles and couples do the same. How will V-day inspire the best in romance for you?
