Are you a single woman with nothing to do and no date on Valentine's Day? Fret not. This is what you can do to have fun!
Are you a single woman with nothing to do and no date on Valentine’s Day? Fret not. This is what you can do to have fun!
Oh no, it’s that time of the year. With Valentine’s Day and all that jazz stirring unwanted and unrecognizable emotions in all single women, it doesn’t come as a surprise that most of us just want to survive the day without feeling dizzy. I mean, come on, no matter how amazing being single is, we all love hearts and flutters, don’t we?
So, this year, let me tell you how to survive the gory V-day in style and glory. And oh, these suggestions have been tried-and-tested, and have withstood the times of despair.
1. Go home or go broke: Every girl knows that retail therapy is the only antidote to the lack of love. If you have been lusting for a certain pair of shoes, just get it. You deserve to indulge a little.
2. Write to yourself: Love letters sound mushy, but who doesn’t love receiving one? Write yourself a letter and use FutureMe to send it to yourself on the 14th of February.
3. Do something new: Have you been wanting to do something badly but haven’t been doing it because of fear? Well, it’s time to send that fear into the dark corner of a closet you forgot even existed. Go on, do it.
4. Watch Friends: If shopping is one antidote, the screen series Friends is another. Order in some pizza and overdose yourself with the tomfoolery of Joey and charm of Ross. You are all sorted!
5. Reward yourself: You don’t need a boy to buy you some chocolate and flowers. You can do that yourself. Run to your closest store this season for some Lindt and tulips. Or, you can send them to yourself online if you don’t want to come across as ‘Forever Alone’ but then who cares?
6. Cook for yourself: There is no joy greater than cooking for yourself. Revive that MasterChef within yourself and gift yourself true ambrosia.
7. Wine, wine, and more wine: Wine helps. It always did, and it always will. And the good time to get a bottle of wine is NOW.
8. Girl gang and ice-cream: The best therapy ever known to mankind is the fact that you can sit with your girls, devour your favourite ice-cream and talk about how stupid boys are. Yes, the only boys you need in your life are ‘Ben and Jerry’.
9. Doll up: You’re in for some luck. With V-day falling on Sunday, you can doll up and head to your favourite place for a Sunday brunch. Who knows? Cupid might strike you there. But even if he doesn’t, you certainly know what to do.
You are a girl of business and you’ve got lots to do. A happy Valentine’s Day, by the way.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Most of my women clients are caregivers—as mothers, wives and daughters. And so, they tend to feel guilty about their ambitions. Belief in themselves is hard to come by.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.
I have been coaching Tanya for the past three months. She wants to change her industry, and we have been working together on a career transition roadmap.
