It's February 11th, which means in a few short days lovers around the US will publicly display their affection (and quite literally buy into a social norm that is little more than a Hallmark Holiday...yada yada yada). This girl is not one of them.
I am a happily single lady, just doing me in the big city. Does this often comprise of evenings trolling eBay on my couch with a glass of wine, 30 Rock reruns playing in the background? Perhaps. But there's more to it. When I first got out of my last relationship - a whopping 4.5 yearer - it was hard to imagine being alone nearly all the time. And now I relish in it. I'm hooked on the freedom that singledom affords me, and Valentine's Day is no exception.
Whether you have a big, romantic evening planned for this Saturday or not, I have a little recommendation for ya'll. Go buy some lingerie. If you have a sig other, well, this is an obvious suggestion and we'll leave you here. But if you don't, you may be asking yourself, "...but, like, why?" Um, do it for you, girl.
Full disclosure: I often do not wear bras. They feel like breast jail and I am just more comfortable without. Sometimes (really, some shirts) do require that I don a bra though, and other times, if going on a date for example, I find wearing my prettiest underthings makes me feel extra sexy. It doesn't matter if anyone else sees them; I know they're there, and they look damn good. It's a little confidence boost via your boobs.
