A Belated Valentine's


Valentine's Day is widely known as a holiday centered around romantic love and couples, however, being single on this day is not all bad, particularly when it comes to financial wellness. 


For starters, being single means you won't have to worry about spending money on gifts, meals, and special things for your partner. In 2022, the average couple spent over $175 on Valentines day. This allows you to save more money and have fewer expenses. Additionally, being single allows you to focus on taking care of yourself, instead of focusing on another person. 


When in a relationship there is usually pressure to keep up with the latest trends or splurge on expensive gifts to impress your partner. Conversely, as a single person you don't have to worry about this added financial stress and can have more freedom to make decisions that are best for your financial situation. This can include saving more money, paying off debt, or investing.


Being single also provides more opportunities for personal growth because you have more time and resources to focus on yourself. You can explore some of your interests or passions, build new relationships, travel, etc. With fewer distractions, you can focus on your own goals and aspirations, being single isn't all that bad! 


In conclusion, being single on Valentine's Day can bring its own financial benefits. Reduced spending, increased financial freedom, and more opportunities for personal growth are just a few examples. So, embrace your single status this Valentine's Day and enjoy the financial benefits that come with it.
