- We cannot all deny that love birds carry the day, with partners buying each other flowers and gifts and going out on cute dinners.
- Organize a fun gathering with other single friends. You could have a movie night, go out for dinner, or plan a game night.
Valentine's Day is not just meant for couples, it's a day for celebrating love in all its forms, from self-love to love between friends and family members.
But we cannot all deny that love birds carry the day, with partners buying each other flowers and gifts and going out on cute dinners.
Red clothes are also donned on that day as a show of love. Single people might feel triggered as they might not have a partner to buy them gifts, but alas! you can enjoy the day alone or with your other single friends.
Here are some ways you can do that:
1. Treat yourself
Indulge in some self-care activities such as taking a long bath, getting a massage, or buying yourself flowers, chocolates or something special.
2. Hang out with other single friends
Organize a fun gathering with other single friends. You could have a movie night, go out for dinner, or plan a game night.
3. Explore a new hobby
Use that day to try something new that you have been curious about, whether it's painting, cooking a new recipe, or learning a musical instrument.
4. Pamper yourself
Treat yourself to a spa day, get a manicure or pedicure, or even book a yoga session so that you can unwind and relax.
5. Have a solo date
Take yourself out on a date to your favorite restaurant, café, or museum. Enjoy your own company.
6. Practice Self-love
Spend the day focusing on loving yourself and appreciating who you are. Write yourself a love letter, practice affirmations, or simply take time to appreciate your strengths and uniqueness.
Just remember that you do not need someone else to make you feel special. Instead of mopping around and feeling bad about being single, take care of yourself and know that you are special.
7. Binge a series or show
Find a series or show you haven't watched, then settle into the couch with a blanket and bowl of popcorn.
8. Make a playlist
Let music be your companion on this day. Put together a playlist of your favorite tunes.
9. Go on a vacation (even on that day alone)
Rather than watch everyone get flowers take a vacation and enjoy some much-needed time to yourself.
