I, along with what seems like 3% of the JMU student population, will be spending this Valentine’s Day single and alone. It’s easy to see why this day sucks if you don’t have a boyfriend or girlfriend, but I’m here to tell you readers that being single isn’t the worst thing in the world. So put down that half-pint of Chubby Hubby and read a few of the reasons why spending Valentine’s Day alone is awesome:
- No fighting about what movie you want to watch. Guys, you won’t have to sit through The Notebook again, and girls, if 300 isn’t your thing, today is your lucky day.
- Slackers, take note- you don’t need to worry about not having a reservation for a restaurant.
- Since nobody’s buying you chocolate or candy, you don’t have to burn it off at the gym tomorrow. Sorry, Stairmaster, looks like you’ll be spending Valentine’s Day alone, too.
- You could get a lot of homework done. Actually, this isn’t really a benefit.
