Valentine’s Day. That one day of the year that fills newly coupled lovers with goo-goo eyes and has everyone smiling like the sun’s come out of a very long winter. Everywhere you turn, there’s hearts and roses and chocolates and cake and red. So much red. Red decorations. Red hearts. Red jewelry. Red clothes. And don’t get me started on the radio that just won’t stop playing love songs! I’m talking recent songs like Hailee Steinfield’s Starving, Ed Sheeran’s Shape of You, John Legend’s All of You to the oldies like Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You, Lionel Richie and Diana Ross’s Endless Love and let’s not forget Stevie Wonder crooning I Just Called to Say I Love You. So much love songs that they become the soundtrack to your dreams.
It’s a beautiful thing really, when love is in the air. But let’s be honest here. It sucks big time, when everyone’s all about love at a time when you yourself are not in a relationship. You feel alone, unloved, it’s pretty common to have singles moping around during Valentine’s Day.
But you know what I’ve always considered to be the best cure for when you have no one who’s sweet on you and you’re sweet on them right back, to spend Valentine’s Day with? Distraction. Distraction, distraction, distraction.
And guess who’s right there, ready to take your mind off the humdrum of being alone on Valentine’s Day? Yup, you guessed it: 2kxo!
Now I’m sure you’re over there, eyebrow raised, wondering what on earth I’m talking about. But think about it, 2kxo’s got everything you need to help make this Valentine one that you’ll actually enjoy.
You’ve got a community filled with people like you, some of them also Valentineless, ready to chat if that’s what you want. And if you’re not in the mood to talk, then take a look at the content you need to keep your eyes on: The 2kxo central library, filled with videos and music and pictures and short clips. And the best part? Not all of those content is about love or falling in love. You can filter those out (or if you’re the type to spend Valentine’s Day watching love stories and listening to love songs, well, 2kxo’s got that as well. Although I’m over here amazed at how you can pull it off when a lesser person—aka, me—wouldn’t want to go near anything love-themed at least until the holiday is over). Basically watch your videos, listen to your songs, look at pictures, and give yourself that distraction you need on Valentine, all without leaving 2kxo. And if the first thought that came to your mind is that well, you can go on Youtube to watch those videos, I want you to think carefully and ask yourself, how many love themed ads can be squeezed into the pre-requisite five seconds? The answer? A lot! With 2kxo, you see zilch.
So yes, make 2kxo the site to be on this Valentine. And don’t worry, even if it is that you want to make an extra salty post about you loving yourself and needing no man, or woman to feel happy and fulfilled, you can also stream it on 2kxo, and if you want that schoolmate of yours—the one you know who would say “Happy Valentine’s Day” in one breath and then ask, “Are you in a relationship yet? Married? Do you have kids?”—to see it, then just hit share and put it up in all the social media sites where she will be most likely to see it. Thankfully, she’s not on your 2kxo private message chat and can’t IM you to ask exactly what you mean by the dig.
What’s important is that you make this Valentine’s Day about you and your happiness and turning it into a good time for you. And if it is that you’re one of the lucky ones who isn’t Valentineless this Valentine but you have a friend or two who don’t have Valentines, well then, be a good friend and hit share. Bring someone some comfort this Valentine’s Day.
