This opening sequence was written when the general election was scheduled to hold about this time last year.
I hear many guys had hoped that the election scheduled for this week Saturday went as proposed just to avoid the commitments that come with that special day. I also heard if the elections had gone ahead as planned, it would have help them(especially ladies) to hide the fact they have nobody they are seeing. Which ever is your case, there’s always an alternative. So in this article, I have put together some ways, creative ways I must add to make the best of that day. So grab a cup of whatever that makes you happy, relax and enjoy this piece
READ YOUR BIBLE/Qur’an
I hear romantic men are fast disappearing from the surface of the earth. So if your purpose of looking for a valentine is to have somebody who can sweep you off your feet, say sweet nothings and all those things that give you some temporary seizure and you haven’t found, well I have alternative idea for you. Grab a copy of any of the versions of the Bible or Qur’an, find a cool corner, relax and open it. The kind of romantic and soothing words you will find in it cannot be uttered by any man. In the bible especially from Psalms to Ecclesiastes to Song of Songs; you will find some words that will do the magic to yourself.
GO FOR A WALK WITH A FRIEND
Friend in this case does not necessarily mean a human being. Jump into your car, slot in your favourite CD and have fun all by yourself. I can assure you not everybody with a valentine would have as much fun. Alternatively, you can take a walk to any of the big shopping malls in your city. Hang around and watch what people do on Val’s day and have a great laugh at them. I promise you; it’s pure fun.
Involve yourself with something you love that has nothing to do with Valentine’s Day. It will put you in touch with how great your life is and remind you this is just one day out of the year. After all, there are other World days you don’t observe.
BECOME A VAL TO ALL
In other parts of the world, St. Valentine’s Day is a day of friendship. Send Valentine greetings to all your friends and let them know how important they are in your life.
You see; we are almost there.
BUY A BIG BOWL OF ICE CREAM
On your way back home that day, buy yourself a big bowl of Ice cream and some cakes too. You can also add a rose flower and tell yourself how much you love yourself. This works more than magic. It brings the kind of joy no man can give you.
By the time you go to bed and wake up, the noise about Val would have died down.
No pity parties if you’re alone for the evening. Avoid romance films and movies. Yes, stay away from Africa Magic and other movie channels. Make Channels TV and other serious News channels your companion. You can choose to make your favorite meal, set a beautiful table, put on your favorite music and make a home spa if you can. Being single doesn’t mean you have to lose out on being indulged. Enjoy yourself, please. No pity parties!
