Happy V-Day, Single People
Guess what day it is? It’s…. *drumroll*…. Valentine’s Day! The day I never have plans for! But it’s ok, I’m not alone. This year, I have decided to take all my other single friends down with me on a short wishful journey down imaginary love lane. I asked all my single friends to describe the person they would want to be in a romantic relationship with, in one short sentence and… there were some pretty deep answers.

Now if you’re feeling a little down today because happy couples, flower bouquets and teddy bears are parading on the streets, chill dude. Flowers will die, and teddy bears are silly, especially the talking ones.
But alright, if you’re still close to declaring doomsday on yourself, take a deep breath, and just trust that he/she will be worth the wait. And whilst waiting, embrace your freedom! How do you think I got so cool? Yeppp, probably not the best time for sampat jokes like these. Now chin up and keep smiling, or how else are you going to be noticed/notice someone who matches your description?
BIG big thanks to everyone who was kind enough to answer my random questions despite the fact that I probably stabbed at a lot of (already) bruised egos. May the odds be in your favor this year!
