Experts: Spend time, not money this V-Day



All my single ladies and man-friends:

Valentine’s Day can be a great chance to meet your own needs and pursue activities you love.

Terry Lusher, of Encouraging Words Counseling, explained that no one can meet the needs of their partner before meeting their own needs.

And that mean loving and respecting yourself.

Hamlet Smith, of Life Strategies Counseling, said the most important thing to do is be yourself.

“If you are a dog person, go to a dog show or teach a class or coach. You are more likely to connect with someone who shares your interests if you are pursuing what makes you come alive,” he said.

Think about going out with other singles on Valentine’s Day or sending flowers to other single friends, he suggests.

“Remember, a beautiful attitude about life is very attractive.”
