So this Valentine’s Day, you’re single. You hear your couple friends going on holidays together and you think, what a total drag that you have no one to go with. Cue this opening scene from the Bridget Jones Diary:
Let us tell you girl, don't let anyone tell you that you can't go on your own trip. You're a strong independent woman. You don't need a man to have a good time!
OK, so that's thinking in an ideal sense. But we totally get how it can feel weird to plan a holiday on your own. Trust us, you're not the only one who feels this way.
