What, no Valentine? Relationships not restricted to romance
It's that time, again. Heart-shaped candy, assorted bouquets and sentimental cards are plentiful, but not a source of happiness for everyone.
"If you would like a romantic relationship, the fact that it hasn't happened yet doesn�t mean that it will never happen," Olsen said.
"Dwelling on what you don't have isn't likely to make it happen. The chance of meeting someone and building a friendship that evolves into a romantic relationship can be more likely to happen to people who focus on the positive."
"Think about it, would you rather approach a person with a smile or pleasant expression? Or someone who's unhappy?" said Olsen, who offered tips for celebrating Valentine's Day:
Loving parents? A favorite aunt, uncle or neighbor? Book group? Exercise buddy?
Enjoy your home? Admire a master gardener who�s helping you learn about flowers? Have a great job or a career interest that nurtures your creativity?
"Relationships are precious, but the value of our relationships with others isn't restricted to romance," Olsen. "For a happy Valentine�s Day, celebrate all of your relationships."
