For all of you who happen to be single on Valentine’s Day – it’s easy to get fed up with all the endless ads for gifts for your loved one, meals for two and related articles in all the newspapers, magazines and on TV.

Don’t bemoan the fact you have no-one special to share the delights of over-priced meals for two, candle lit dinners and bunches of red roses - celebrate being single.

Treat yourself – if not today then sometime this week or get together with a single friend and indulge yourselves and have some fun.

Don’t wait until you have someone to buy you gifts and treats – go out and buy a box of chocolates, a bunch of flowers or a treat for yourself.

Curl up with a good book, a glass or two of wine and your favourite film or go out (if you can bear all the loved-up couples, gazing into each other’s eyes) and treat yourself to a trip to the theatre or the cinema or a night out, if you can avoid the Valentine’s Day price hikes.

Yes, it's great to have someone to share life with but enjoy the freedom of being single – whether through choice or circumstances.  It’s not so bad.  You have your independence.

You can have the whole bed to yourself, you don’t have to put up with someone else’s stuff in the bathroom or cluttering up your space and you can see your friends whenever you want to and choose to do what you want, when you want without having to fit in with someone else’s plans or change yours in order to fit in with them and all the disagreements and compromise that then ensues.

You also get to know yourself a little better, without having to rely on having someone else around or jumping from one relationship to another.

Take time to love yourself.  After all – you’re the most important person.

Happy Valentine's day!
