Valentine's Day Dont Dos

10 things you need not do on Valentine's Day

1.Propose just because its Valentine's Day
If you are in love, everyday is a Valentine's Day. But dont pressurise yourself into a decision, just because of a calendar date.
( )

2. Equate your self esteem with the number of cards/gifts you receive.
What matters is not what others think of you, but what you think of yourself.

3.Think sadly about your ex.
Your ex is an ex for a reason. Dont waste your time, celebrate life, everyday. And make it a point to pamper yourself and celebrate life on this day. Your first love should be you, and if you dont love yourself, who will?

4.Think the biggest and best flowers/ cards/ candies mean more love
They just mean spending more money. And more money is not the same as more love

5.Throw stones at others celebrating Valentine's Day
Live and let live :)

6.Think you need not wish your loved one, because you are already in a relationship and you had celebrated it in the past
Its always feels nice to be wished :) And why take anyone for granted.

7.Compare your Valentine's Day with that of your friend, colleague etc
Thats just a waste of time, you know that right?

8.Think you have to have a plan just because everyone around you has one
Its your life, do what you want, dont want what others do. Celebrate it if you want on your own, Celebrate it with someone else or just ignore it. But just dont worry over what others are doing.

9.Think its the end of the world if your loved ones forgets it
I agree that its almost impossible with all the marketing but please there is always Feb 15th, just celebrate it the next day, instead of fighting over it

10.Worry over the single status
If Valentine's Day is the day of love, the first person you should love is yourself. Go pamper yourself and as I said earlier, if you dont love yourself, if you dont think you are worth pampering, if you dont think you are worth your time; who will?

Its just another calendar date, but just like other calendar dates, make the best out of it:)
Happy Valentine's Date to all Bloggers:)
