February is here and that means Valentine’s Day is upon us.

Valentine’s Day is a tough time for a lot of singles (and even for some who are married). For singles, there is so much pressure to find a date or be asked out. Or worse, it sparks a feeling of being less than. Been there, done that myself.

Instead of all of that, I want to empower you to Be Your Own Valentine this year by entering my giveaway below!

In my new book, Dating Done Right, I coin the phrase, “Date Yourself” as the first step in seeking a meaningful, marriage-minded relationship. Why? Because unless you’re content and comfortable on your own, you will never be content and comfortable in a relationship. There are many who are married who never learned to be alone and found they are even lonelier in marriage. Especially on Valentine’s Day.

When I was single, I made the decision that I wouldn’t miss out on experiences simply because I was single. I was determined to get to know myself, what I wanted, and get comfortable in my own skin: 

I took myself out to eat.
I took myself to the movies.
I even bought myself flowers on occasion. 
Valentine’s Day was no exception.

I wrote Dating Done Right with the single individual in mind. It is written as a guide to navigating singleness well and dating with wisdom. But it begins with dating yourself. There is no perfect time to practice this skill than on Valentine’s Day.

The giveaway includes a bouquet of flowers delivered right to your door (or a friend’s door) on Valentine’s Day AND a $50 dinner and a movie e-gift card. 

All you have to do is order a copy of Dating Done Right (ebook or paperback) and enter the drawing below with your proof of purchase (Amazon receipt or screenshot). This is an opportunity to gift yourself or to gift your friends with Dating Done Right AND the chance to win some extras to make this “holiday” a little more bearable. (and I wouldn’t be surprised if some married folks enter as well!)
