Everyone around you is probably planning their sickeningly sweet, ooey-gooey V-Day date with their S.O, while you give them the death stare of your life from your lonely little corner all the way in the back of the room. I feel you. It’s hard to be happy for the couples when you walk around all day, with that dark cloud hovering gloomily over your head, as they happily skip past. Please do resist the urge to trip them. We know it’s tempting but, please be nice.
You know what you need? A change in perspective and, that’s exactly why you have us! We’re here to turn that frown upside down and tell you all the ways you can be perfectly content on your own this V-Day, with the help of some magic juice; and that is coffee.
Hear us out:
1. Coffee will always be there every morning to make sure you get up on the right side of the bed and get a good start to the day.
You can count on coffee to be there for you, loyally, every day. It would never ghost your texts or forget to wish you on your birthday. Coffee would never do you dirty like that.
2. Coffee can pick you up when you're in the worst of moods.
Whether you've managed to rip your jeans at work, forgot to hand in your uni assignment on time, used hairspray on your pits confusing it for deodorant, or anything else that makes you a disgrace to the human race; coffee will accept you for who you are. Coffee never judges. All it takes is one cup and you're back to being your perky, upbeat self.
3. There are never any strings attached to Coffee and there's no need to make any kind of scary commitment to just one.
There are so many deliciously different cups of coffee out there and Coffee understands that you'll probably want to try out other options (something you wouldn't have the luxury of doing if you were in a relationship, just saying). There are lattes, cappuccinos, espressos, and so much more for you to have your pick from. You never have to settle for just one.
4. Coffee is always ready to go with you anywhere you want.
You can have your Coffee with you while you're driving around in your car, sitting at a restaurant, walking to the gym, and literally anywhere else. It will never fuss and complain about how it doesn't feel like going out on that day and would rather stay in and play video games. Coffee aligns itself to your schedule and for that, we love and appreciate it.
5. Any time of the day, Coffee will be there.
Be it 2pm or 2am, Coffee will always be there for you; whether it's to get you through a stressful day or to help you cope with a bad nightmare. They'll never hang up on you because they have work early in the morning and can't be bothered to handle your drama rn. Coffee cares.
6. Coffee will always get along with your friends.
If you want to take it along to your next gal pal meet-up, you won't need to worry about how they'll behave and whether they'll enjoy themselves or not. Coffee will never whine about how it doesn’t like your besties. Coffee will get along with everybody and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love Coffee?
In short, girls, you don't need to fret about not having a S.O atm. Just have some coffee (in moderation, drinking too much can also be a bad thing) and be your own Valentine this year! We could all use that extra bit of self-love, don't you think?
