In spite of its hetero-centric roots, Valentine's Day can have
the same depressing effect on single lesbians as it does for
Being bombarded with imagery of happy couples or worse - happy
couples smooching in the flesh - is really not what you need
when you're not feeling the love yourself.
But before you sink into a gloomy bah humbug equivalent, the
good news here at DivaDate is that this time of year is also our
busiest. If you've been dating online with DivaDate and are yet to
find the woman of your dreams, then you'll be happy to know we
always have new women joining up in February.
With the weather, Valentine's Day and New Year's resolutions
still fresh in the minds of the nation, everyone's feeling the
pressure, so expect to be getting a whole load of new potential
partners heading your way this month.
So spruce up your profile and photos and clear your schedule, as
you'll want to be making full use of the opportunities that should
be coming your way very soon.
In the meantime, here are some tips for surviving the day.
Don't be alone on Valentine's Day
The first and most obvious thing to do is make sure you're not
sat at home feeling sorry for yourself. Some people don't
particularly care about the dreaded V-day and for them this is a
non-issue. If, on the other hand, you're one of those who attach a
lot of meaning and memories to the occasion, don't wallow alone at
home. Either get together with friends or try to schedule a date
for the night. Even if you schedule a date with someone from the
"maybe" pile, the fact that you're actively trying to put yourself
out there can be enough to keep away the gloom for the night.
Make good use of time
If things fail to materialise and you're stuck at home, use that
opportunity to spend some quality time checking out the new blood
on DivaDate. The key is to remember that as long as you keep
trying, you're on the right track, even if results are not
Keep things in perspective
But of course, the most important thing to remember is that
Valentine's Day is just a day. By tomorrow it will pass and the sun
will still rise, spring will still come and chances are you will
find what you're looking for. Society may have a way of rubbing it
in your face, but this too, as they say, shall pass.
