It's that time of the year again when all establishments are decked out in all their hearts and flowers glory; when morning shows and news sites feature all things Valentine's Day (from resto deals, flower prices, and all sorts of unique Heart's Day gimmicks); and when single girls need to be ready for these four things: 

  1. Loved-up couples.

If, for some reason, you're not ready (or willing) to see loved-up couples so early in the morning (or the rest of the day for that matter), might as well spend the day holed up in your room because they'll be everywhere, especially in school or at the mall.

  1. Flowers, balloons, giant plushies, and grand gifts everywhere.

From bouquet-toting guys to balloon-carrying boys, be ready to feast your eyes on an elaborate display of Valentine gifts. There's going to be at least one person carrying a V-Day gift everywhere you look.

  1. Social media posts about V-Day.

Skip social media if you're not all about mushy public declarations of love. Whether it's a lengthy love letter or a blow-by-blow account of what transpired during the day, for sure, 90% of the posts that day will be love (or the lack thereof)-related.

  1. Jokes about being single and sawi.

Being single doesn't mean you're sawi or bitter, but it sure won't stop other people from commenting exactly that. If you're tired of hearing jokes like this (because, let's be honest, it does get old), better prepare yourself with some neat comebacks (or clap backs if needed).
