How I dealt with being single during CoVid and Valentines

The short answer to how I stay happy while being single is that I kept myself busy.

On Friday, 2 days before Valentine’s Day, I read around 900 pages and finished a very long book compilation I had been trying to finish ever since July of 2021.

On Saturday, I read another 400-500 pages and had a conversation with a friend. I also gathered a series of new writing prompts to help myself in my journaling exercises.

On Sunday, I vacuumed the house, went to the doctors for a health check up, had an early shower to brighten my day, and began writing my book, I also began a 25th research project, on top of the 24 I already came up with and I set a series of new mini goals for myself.

If your depressed that you are single on Valentine’s Day, find an activity to keep yourself busy, whether it’s learning a language for free with Google or improving your writing with practice or training your posture with standing exercises or trying to improve your vocabulary with library books or doing a work out routine via YouTube. Walking for 4 hours a day is how one obese guy I used to talk to got down to a normal weight. Scriptural study also works since a thousand lifetimes could not exhaust them of all wisdom and knowledge.

    Finding an activity to keep yourself busy sounds like good advice to me! Thankfully I spent time with my mother and brother today watching the lord of the rings

    Valentine's Day is a meaningless Hallmark holiday. I fail to see why people get so depressed about it.

    How long have you been single? I've been single for all 27 years of my life. Eventually you run out of shit to do. I work out, I read, I've wrote three books, I've lived on three continents that aren't the one I was born on, I speak three languages, I know how to cook really well, I've got two college degrees, I could go on all day. This is not good advice in the long-term. If you do this shit long enough, eventually it becomes a rut. You find something else, but it's never something that makes you happy. It's just a distraction. I don't really have good advice for lonely people, but if there are any other lonely people here who have been gas-lighted by the "Cult of Self Improvement", then let me assure you, you aren't alone and self-improvement/staying busy all the time will not make you happy anymore than staying drunk all the time will. It's a numbing agent, not a solution.

    Be glad that as a woman, nobody gives a flying fuck about a woman's confidence, that's not how men are attracted to women
