Single, single and loving it: The ultimate V Day guide for those ridin’ solo It’s that time of the year again, good old Valentine’s Day. While there’s plenty of tips available on how to spoil your other half, we want to give a shoutout to all the spectacular singles out there! 
It might feel like you’re living in a rom com, bombarded everywhere with balloons, flowers and heart shaped candy, but just because you don’t have a significant other, doesn’t mean you can’t show yourself some love, it is Valentine’s Day after all! 

Celebrate you
Comparison is the thief of joy. It goes without saying, don’t compare where you’re at in li¬¬fe with those around you, and especially not those you follow on social media. Instead, we encourage you to celebrate all your wins, big or small, and give yourself a pat on the back (in the form of a glass of wine or maybe a new treat 😉) because hey, you deserve it! If you’re looking for a way to indulge, a little payday advance from MyPayNow should do the trick. 

Take the pressure off
You’re taught from a young age that you’re destined to meet a soulmate and go on to live your “happily ever after”. Spoiler alert: it doesn’t always work out like that (surprise, surprise). If you’re single and ready to mingle, maybe you’re putting too much pressure on yourself. Enjoy being single, dating and meeting new people! You’ll learn a lot about yourself during this time. Just as the saying goes, the best things in life happen when you least expect it, and they’re not wrong!

Love your mates
Valentine’s Day is all about love, but why is it so tied to relationships? It’s 2022 people, why not spend it with your mates! Show your appreciation for the people in your life that have formed who you are and helped you grow. Maybe they’ve been there for you through a rough patch, or maybe they’re just a good time. Whatever the reason, show them the love with a card or dedicated hang out day, we guarantee it’ll be appreciated. 

Share the love
There’s plenty of people out there doing it tough, and any kind of holiday can be a stark reminder of their situation. Valentine’s Day is no exception and can be extremely hard on people, so why not use this day to give back and spread some love. Simple things like donating clothes, donating blood, volunteering at a homeless shelter, or adopting a pet can all be things that will brighten someone’s day.
