Romance comes alive in the month of February as lovers everywhere pick out gifts and plan the perfect surprise for their beloved.

But for some singles, Valentine's Day rolls around in an unwelcome light, reminding them that they have no "special someone."

This year you can turn it all around!

Before you roll your eyes at every diamond jeweler commercial and try to avoid gagging at all the Facebook posts about sappy romantic gestures from your coupled friends, there is hope.

And guess what? No one has to show up suddenly in your life to sweep you off your feet to enjoy Valentine's Day.

How is this possible? The "special someone" is you, silly!

All you need to have a great time celebrating is to make it all about you. Why not use this day to show yourself just how much you care? Order that spa package or pick out your favorite box of chocolates. No need for a partner when you're busy loving yourself.

Your kids will love to see you happy, so leave the guilt trip for another day.

Not only does being single keep your attention undivided from your most prized possessions (your kids), but it will be a fun day to spoil them and get the same in exchange. Don't forget to hide the chocolates you pick out if you don't want to lose them to your chirping birds.
