Host: What should singles do for Valentine's Day?
Gloria McDonald: Valentine's Day can be a really tough day for singles. So what I highly recommend is know yourself; know what you need and know what is going to make you feel good. For some people, they really just need to be quiet, they need to be alone, they need to be at home, they need to cuddle up with the good romance novel or a good book or something that might take their mind off that day completely or they might want to sit around and rent a romantic comedy or maybe they want to rent an action movie, again to just be totally away from it or maybe you are the type of person that really needs to be with a group of friends. So, get a great group of friends together; get a great group of girlfriends together; go to somebody's house, have a potluck dinner or go out and celebrate that you are a fantastic woman and you are full of energy and full of life and whatever, or if you are a guy and maybe you just want to stay home and watch sports on TV. Again, rent an action movie or go to a pub and hangout with some of your buddies. Know what is really going to be best for you and then plan ahead and do that.
Get a group of friends together or plan what you are going to do to be quiet and be by yourself and be at home, but take care of yourself and cherish yourself. You might not be in a relationship now, but the most important thing is to know that you are truly loving, lovable and loved and you are deserving a fantastic relationship and if you hold onto that vision, you will have it, it can be yours. It might not be right now, but do not let that get you down; hang on and know that you will have a fantastic relationship.
