Ilissa’s MFT Tip #6 -Valentine’s Day for One

love selfAnother Valentine’s Day without a date? Not seeing anyone right now? Maybe you just came out of a relationship and you’re on your own again. Whatever the circumstances try not to feel too bad. Most people in there 20’s and even early 30’s are still looking for a partner. You are in a large group. I think it says more about the times then it does about you personally.

You have plenty of time. Most people aren’t getting married until they are in there thirties. Many young couples who were married shortly after high school or college well, they’re getting divorced.

So, plan something nice for yourself or call a friend and celebrate the holiday together. There’s nothing like the love of a good friend. And remember, you’ve got plenty of time to meet that special person!

Happy Valentine’s Day to You!
