Valentine’s Day is about sharing the day with the love of your life. But what are you to do if you find yourself single on February 14th? There are several ways that you can celebrate the day of love without having a partner in crime. Here are five tips for enjoying your day as a proud single:
Throw a Singles Party
Probably the most common activity people find themselves doing on Valentine’s Day if they are single, but not something to disregard. Spending time with friends can easily compare to a romantic night out with a significant other.
Join a Meetup Group
If you don’t have any single friends to throw a party with, why not check out your local Meetup groups. Meetup offers a broad range of options to join in on festivities, including Valentine’s Day. The best advice is to search for something ahead of time, but there may still be some last-minute February 14th posts out there for you to choose from.
Practice a Little Self Love
Spending a little time by yourself is not always a bad thing. How about checking off some of your to-do list: hitting the gym, or renting a few movies that you’ve wanted to catch? Giving yourself a little care and attention is something most of us never get around to doing, so deciding to dedicate Valentine’s Day to yourself is an excellent way to spend the holiday.
Solo Dinner and a Movie
Some might find it lame to go out on a date with oneself. Really when was the last time you went out to eat wherever you wanted, ordered whatever fancied you, and picked the movie that “you” really wanted to see? A solo dinner and a movie make the perfect excursion for Valentine’s Day
Send a Secret Admirer Gift
If you can’t seem to get love out of your mind, then why not send a secret admirer gift to a friend. Picking out various gifts for your single friends can give you something to do, allows you to shop for the holiday, and brighten up someone’s life.
