Commentary: The Perks of Being Single on Valentine’s Day


Commentary by McKenna Rex

Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate those you love in your life, and a chance for card companies to earn some serious cash. While going on romantic dates and watching rom-coms with your sweetheart can be fun, sometimes flying solo for V-Day is a-okay too.

No spending money on pricey gifts

You have an entire day to binge watch your favorite shows

Eat whatever you want, who needs fancy dinner dates anyway?

You can spend the day in your pajamas

No need to call ahead and deal with the crazy crowds of fancy restaurants

You won’t have a lingering fear that your relationship might be on its way out

Sometimes friends can be just as cool as a significant other. Galentine’s anyone?

If that’s not your scene, you can have some time to yourself

You won’t have to fork up some serious cash for a date night

Last-minute gift anxiety isn’t a concern

Wi-fi is better in the comfort of your living room
