10 Great Things About Being Single on Valentine's Day

Did Cupid pass you by this V-Day?

1. It's a great excuse to get sloshed with your closest girlfriends. Not that we need an excuse.

2. You don't have to smile through gritted teeth when you get crotchless panties as a gift.

3. There's no better night to pick up guaranteed-single men at the bar.

4. You can see if you really can make it through the whole winter without shaving your legs.

6. It's the perfect day to blow your New Year's resolution to eat healthy by buying yourself a box of chocolates - Godiva, not supermarket-brand.

7. There's no better time to practice some self-love with a shopping spree at Babeland.

8. You're not spending it with that idiot you spent last Valentine's Day with.

9. It's perfectly acceptable to spend the day working late, eat Chinese take-out for dinner in your extra-large fleece pajamas, and not put out before you go to bed.

10. You can spend it with the hottest, funniest, and smartest person you know - you.
