40 Empowering ‘I Love Me’ Quotes To Give Yourself For Valentine’s Day When You’re Single

Single and loving (myself).

Self-love is an unconditional type of love that thrives on self-confidence, self-awareness, and self-acceptance. We’ve heard it told time and time again, self-love is the best love. That really is true, because self-love can never be taken away from you. It’s a permanent form of love, unlike the love that comes from other people.

Taking time to love yourself is time well spent. You can always count on yourself to love you no matter what, so you don’t have to fear heartbreak or loss.

Another person cannot love in the true fullness that you deserve to be loved. That love that can’t be fulfilled by others only comes from you. You are the only one who knows how you deserve to be loved.

The love that you give yourself is a representation of the love you think you deserve. That’s why it so important to practice self-love. Self-love allows you to see your worth and value.

With Valentine’s day right around the corner, it can be depressing to see all those happy couples going on dates and talking about how to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and all those sickly sweet rom-com trailers — but don’t be discouraged.

You have your own love story … starring you. Valentine’s day is a day about love.  Who cares if people think Valentine’s day is meant only for couples? Single people can have a funfilled memorable day just like people in relationships — or even better.

Couples aren’t the only ones who can experience love. You are completely capable of loving yourself. Being single is the perfect time to prioritize self-love. You don’t have as many distractions and can dedicate your time to yourself and your goals. Getting more opportunities to do what you love, whenever you want will really help you see the value of singleness.

Valentine’s Day is an amazing opportunity to discover yourself and fall more in love with who you are, something that being in a relationship can sometimes hinder. 

Dear single people, don’t allow anyone to make the love you give yourself seem inadequate, because loving yourself is a priority. Being the best version of yourself has nothing to do with your relationship status, but it has everything to do with self-love.

Single or not, you deserve the best of the best. To keep your spirits high, read these love quotes for Valentine’s day that are …

125 Best Valentine’s Day Quotes About Love To Make This Year’s Date Night The Best One Yet

Celebrate this year with the best love quotes of all time.

There are many different accounts of the origins of Valentine’s Day, but most of them involve a Christian martyr named Valentine. The most popular story the one of priest Valentine, who bequeathed the title “Saint” after his death — Saint Valentine was caught secretly marrying couples to spare the husbands from war. Sadly, the Roman priest was jailed and eventually sentenced to death for his crimes, but before he died he wrote the jailer’s daughter (who he had befriended) a letter, and signed it “Love, your Valentine.”

This is the most popular story associated with our modern version of Valentine’s Day, which happens every February 14. The idea is to honor the memory of Saint Valentine by holding our loved ones a little bit closer.

A common misconception about the holiday is that we are meant to express our feelings in grand gestures and expensive gifts. Many people blame the rapid rise of consumerism, but with the ways we celebrate Valentine’s day now — with chocolates, balloons, romantic dinner dates and overpriced bouquets of roses and proposals — some people end up feeling upset and even rejected by their partners because the day wasn’t extravagant enough.

This idea is the exact opposite of the spirit of the day. Valentine’s Day is supposed to be about celebrating our loved ones and bringing them close. It is about choosing your partner and proving to them that they are “our person”. It is about loving those close to us and making sure that the people we cherish feel that love — before it’s too late.

So if you’re looking to celebrate Valentine’s Day with someone you love this year, keep in mind where the holiday started, and use these romantic love quotes to help you say just the right thing to your partner. Here is our collection of the best Valentine’s Day quotes about love to help you ring in the holiday the right way.
