Being single on Valentine’s Day isn’t always easy, I’ve had my fair share of experience with that for sure. Seeing all the preparation in shops for February 14th wherever you go can be a little saddening, especially when you don’t have a significant other to shower with love or surprise on this day as everyone else around you seems to be in a relationship (key word, seems!).
Even if you’re single you can still survive Valentine’s Day, despite the fact that you may not have a significant other to spoil on that day.
So, here I have a compiled a list of a couple of ways that you can somehow survive Valentines Day whilst being single.
- Treat yourself since you don’t have a significant other to treat. If you’re single then Valentine’s Day could be the day where you treat yourself and buy yourself something new, whether that be perfume, new make up or whatever you like. Just treat yourself.
- Take advantage of any sales that are on at shops or online, because after all it is Valentine’s day. Although this is similar to the last one, it’s always good to treat yourself and get a good bargain in the sales at the same time, am I right?
- Treat your best friend(s). If you don’t fancy treating yourself on Valentine’s Day and still want to spread some love then what better way to do that than to treat your best friends whilst showing them that you care!
- Spend the day/evening watching movies whether that be on Netflix or another streaming site. Since it is Valentine’s Day after all then why not watch some romance films to celebrate the day along with some snacks. If you don’t want to watch romance films, then why not watch a comedy to boost your mood!
- Read. If you don’t necessarily want to watch a movie then why not take advantage of the day and buy yourself a romance novel. Then proceed to read that romance novel on Valentine’s Day.
- Order your favourite takeaway. What better day to order yourself your favourite takeaway, whether that be a chinese or pizza. Not only that but you’ll be able to eat it all to yourself rather than getting something to share with a significant other (yay for more food!)
- Go out for a meal with friends who may also be single. If you don’t want to spend your night on your own eating a takeaway then why not arrange a meal or night out with friends who may also be single (or just have no plans!). It’s also a good way to catch up with friends.
That’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed this Valentine’s Day themed post. How are you spending your Valentine’s Day this year? I’d love to know in the comments!
