How To Survive Valentines When Single & Alone

He comes complete with the subtle moody charm and allure. The kind that draws you in slowly, then all at once. There’s an air of mystery surrounding him, coupled with his magnetic charm, a deep accented voice, and a striking sly smile.

You recognize the smile, mainly because it speaks volumes about his years mastering the art of seduction. Yes, he’s a master manipulator. Although, he surprisingly lacks the timeless biker jacket and motorcycle, but make no mistakes. He is an original bad boy, only the Kenyan type.


Weekends together are characterized by blurry nights-I mean booze and more booze. In the middle of the vibrant night lights and deafening music; your conversations are minimal if not non-existent.

You know it’s only a matter of time before “whatever this is”  blows up in smoke. In fact, from the vast knowledge of relationships amassed from binge-watching Lucas Scott and Brooke, you know this isn’t it.


But you love the crew. His crew, of which you’re now a rightful member of. Never been part of one, so the concept is mind-blowing. Especially the drunken night friendship, love, and memories. Fast forward 5 years, when the lovely ladies from Over 25 school you on what a situationship looks like. Then, it finally makes sense why you were dumped right before Valentine’s Day. Rather silently ghosted.

So how do you deal with the sudden turn of events?
