Shonda Rhimes has given special advice to any single girls moping around on February 14th: “F*ck Valentine’s Day. Go do something with your life!”
Her message, and somewhat of a rant, came after a fan asked her advice for single girls this love day. “Here is what I say to all the ladies who are alone on Valentines Day: please do not ever use these words ‘ladies who are alone on Valentine’s Day’ together in a sentence ever again. Ever. Again,” she wrote.
Rhimes said V-Day is not any more significant than any other day of the year and single women don’t need cheering up because, “THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU.”
“DO NOT buy into the idea that a day created by greeting card companies should be more romantic than other day or should make you feel lonelier than any other day,” she continued. “‘Cause life is awesome. And [feeling lonely because of it] is stupid. And a waste of perfectly good time.”
The television producer and brains behind hit show Scandal suggested all women to do whatever it is that makes them happy today. “Go. Be happy with the people you love and who love you,” she said. “See a friend. Read a book. Flirt with a cute boy (or girl). Dance it out. Watch a movie. Have a party. Build a robot. Stop a Zombie Apocalypse. Take over the Earth. Paint your toenails. Eat soup. DO ANYTHING.”
Thanks for the great advice, Shonda!
Whether you are single or in a relationship, what are your plans this V-day?
