This phrase, which has become the “battle cry” of Filipino singles all over the world, seem to ring louder and louder as the 14th of February draws nearer. But while we often associate this “holiday” with couples and sweet romantic love, let us not forget that, to borrow some of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s words, “there are all kinds of love in this world.”
So, even if you’re single AF, here are 5 compelling reasons to celebrate Valentines Day.
5 Reasons to Celebrate Valentines Day (Even If You’re Single)
5. These guys love you no matter what
Whether you’re a cat or a dog person, there’s no denying the relief our furry friends give us after a long long day. Whatever happens with your life, you know there’s this one cat/dog who will love you no matter what. No judgment, just pure love. Celebrate love with these loyal and adorable creatures with some pampering and a fine meal this Feb 14!
Aren’t they adorable? You can adopt them!
4. There are brave teachers helping future generations to become the best versions of themselves
A teacher’s creed: Come hell or high water
Whether it be your favorite English teacher or your strict Math professor, the mentors of this world deserve some love this Valentines Day. Remind Ma’am and Sir how important their role is in our society. Trust me, in this day and age, a little “thank you” can go a long way.
3. You have awesome friends who love you for the weirdo that you are
Even a cheap barkilyos ice cream taste special when you’re with you squad
Even when you don’t have a romantic partner (or just got dumped. Ouch!), your BFFs will always always be with you. From getting drunk to binge-watching RomComs, your friends rarely keep you hanging. They keep you sane in the middle of EDSA Traffic. They make you smile with an inappropriate screenshot. They give you food when you have nothing but a packet of mayonnaise on your fridge. So, why not go on a date with your Squad this V-day? Maybe enjoy an eat-all-you-can set-up? You know full well, it’s sulit when it comes to your gang.
