1. You can eat whatever you want, whenever you want, and not be judged.


2. It is perfectly acceptable to eat Nutella all day.

3. You don’t have to deal with dinner reservations, finding the perfect outfit and giving the perfect gift to your significant other.


4.  Instead, you can grab your single girlfriends, put on a sexy pair of heels and hit the town. 


5. Or, you can stay in and eat junk food and watch a rom-com (or 5).

9. You can always send yourself flowers and chocolate, like Cher in “Clueless”. Your co-workers will be dying to know who your “secret admirer” is.

10. Because “Leslie Knope’s “Galentine’s Day” is totally a holiday, you can celebrate it ALL. YEAR. LONG.


11. You can take the night to pamper yourself because you deserve it, girlfrand!


14. You still have love in your life, so you surround yourself with that!

Your parents, your BFF, your pet…you get the idea. Being single is not the end all-be all as you have everything that’s so much better than a significant other right in your inner circle. And bonus–more candy the next day! 


Hannah Gettleman is a bubbly twenty-something living in Chicago. She graduated in 2012 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in Journalism. Don't tell her that print is dying--she's already made the switch to public relations. As a Midwest girl, winter happens approximately 80% of the year, so she knows a thing or two about a good pair of snow boots. She lives for summer weather (even though she can never tan), Boy Meets World reruns, and an unhealthy addiction to dark chocolate and online shopping. She's a die-hard Chicago sports fan, even though she's well aware the Cubs always end up in last place every year.
