A Single Guy’s Valentine’s Day Survival Guide

valentines coupleSingle on Valentine’s Day? Don’t feel bad. Lots of people are single all days of the year. But, even though the holiday is a corporate creation, it can still make a fella feel crushingly lonely.

After all, those corporations spend a lot of time convincing you how you need to buy your true love something and the more valuable the better. But, how can you buy her something if you don’t have a true love? Ooops.

Sadly, corporations don’t sell true loves. Well, at least not the reputable ones.

But, don’t worry. You don’t have to spend Valentine’s Day with your face in your tear stained pillow. That’s why we offer a single guy’s Valentine’s Day survival guide. Follow this advice and V-day will be a lot less painful for you and cringe inducing for others.

Don’t Mope

No woman ever has said, “I feel so sorry for that guy. I think I’ll date him.” Besides, you don’t want pity dates anyway. So, even if you’re single and upset on Valentine’s Day, don’t spend it in despair. You’ll only tell everyone that you’re single. And, you’ll also tell them that you’re pathetically single.

You don’t want moping around on a Hallmark holiday to spoil your chances to date those girls in your life the other days of the year. Keep your head up and act like you don’t care. Find something fun to do. Forget about women for a day.

Avoid Excessive Displays

You might be tempted to make Valentine’s Day the time to talk to your crush about your feelings or win over some random girl in the office. A high value, hot guy who sends two dozen roses to his girlfriend in the office will make every other woman there desire him and become extremely jealous of his girlfriend.

However, if you try that with a girl who barely knows you or has no idea you like her romantically, it will backfire. We’re talking anywhere from “avoid you at the lunch table” to “call the cops for creepy stalking” backfire.

If you want to ask someone out, just do it. Don’t be weird just because it’s Valentine’s Day.

People Don’t Care

You might be crushingly lonely on Valentine’s Day, but people don’t care. OK, your mom might. But, no one wants to hear about it the entire day, whether in person or on your social media feed.

It goes back to the first point. People might sympathize, they might empathize, but, in the end, no one wants to be your counselor or put up with your whining. Most people are too concerned with their own problems to take on yours too.

Do Something About It

“I’ve tried nothing and I’m all out of ideas.”

That is probably the best way to describe the way most guys deal with their lack of romantic success. Dating is a skill and if a guy is lonely, it’s likely he doesn’t have the right skills. Or, he doesn’t have the traits necessary to be attractive.

Fortunately, there are ways to develop the skills to get her and become the guy she wants, not just on Valentine’s Day, but everyday of the year.

We offer books that address these very problems. Check them out and have a girl for next year. Then, you won’t even need a Valentine’s Day survival guide.
