5 Things For Single Lesbians On Valentines Day
You're a single lesbian? Enjoy this day tby taking time to love yourself in special ways.

4. Rent two or three of your favorite lesbian films and invite your single lesbian friends for popcorn and movie night. Add in some chocolate and a great red wine to honor the history of St. Valentine breaking the law to marry soldiers. And then raise a glass to salute the history of gays and lesbians getting married through out the years in spite of it being illegal.

5. Get a box of Valentines, yes the kind children use.  Give Valentine's out to all the people in your life that you love and adore and who make your world special. Acknowledge just how much love there is in your life even though there’s not that one special romantic love right now. The friends and family I have right now and who I love dearly, make my life great every day. They definitely deserve recognition for the love they bring to your life.

These are five simple ideas but each one connects you with the love that is available in your life every day.


The real truth of Valentine’s Day is that we shouldn’t wait for “the one” to show up to share love, to care deeply for our own selves and to tell others how much we appreciate them.

So get ready. Make a plan and just do it!  And before you leave this page, tell me… what are you going to do for Valentines Day?
