Burning your ex’s stuff (à la the classic Friends episode) and having loads of ice cream are the yearly Valentine’s Day prescriptions for singles (who have broken up!).
But what about the singletons who just don’t care, you know those of you actually don’t MIND being single on Valentine’s Day. Shouldn’t the celebration have something for us as well? Yes, Of Course me!
I’ve tried listing 9 ideas that treat Valentine’s Day not as a day to celebrate romance, but as a day to glorify love in general love for oneself, one’s friends, one’s family and for everyone in the world. So go forth and enjoy, no matter what your relationship status is.
1. Use V-Day As An Excuse To Connect
Remove your best crayons and pens, and “Send Valentines or personal notes to everyone who means a lot to you.”
Who needs one valentine when you can have more, right?
2. “Netflix and Chill”
“Netflix and chill” is a euphemism for an evening of staying indoors and enjoying with yourself.
3. Host an Anti-Valentine’s Day Party!
4. Go where you’re guaranteed, unconditional love
It’s impossible to feel unlovable when big brown puppy eyes are gazing at you in adoration or when a soft little kitty is curled up purring in your lap.
5. CHALLENGE YOURSELF!
Trying doing something you haven’t done before! Sky diving? Bungee jumping? Deep sea diving? Go do it this Valentine’s – there’s no time like the present to have an adventure! GO ON and ROCK IT!
6. Fall in love with something/someone new

8. Put yourself out there
If you’ve been thinking about trying out Tinder dating, This Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to finally take the time to try it out. Remember to create a really thoughtful in-depth profile and go through your pics to find the ones that show you at your best.
Who knows? Maybe this time next year you’ll be celebrating with the person you met online tonight. And don’t forget me I advised you! 😜
9. Be your own Valentine
Being single on Valentine’s Day isn’t really a big deal, you know. Yeah, you might feel a little … aggrieved, seeing all those couples clinging to each other like a magnet, but come on. You’re young, free, and gorgeous! Whether you’re flying solo for the day, you can still have a blast. C’mon, singles, claim your Valentine’s Day!
Buy yourself a beautiful bouquet, or dig your mouths on that high-end artisanal chocolate you’ve been dying to try. Treat yourself to a spa day!
If you don’t want to waste money (because you understand money doesn’t buy your love), take a soothing hot bath and sprinkle it with fragrant rose petals. Then light some candles and bring yourself a glass of red wine
Being single on February 14 can be an amazing, exciting opportunity to do something just for you. Do you have other great tips for spending a Valentine’s Day as a single? Post them here – I’d love to hear them!
