So what if you haven’t found your special someone yet? What if you don’t actually need someone in your life right now? Or ever? Do you really think Valentine’s Day is only for cheesy couples and roses and romance? Of course not!
Pick yourself up and start doing the things you love, even if you have to do them by yourself. Here are 10 ways of celebrating being single on Valentine’s Day.
1. Get drunk in a river of chocolate
Nothing cheers you up more than chocolate and who says you have to buy it for someone or that someone needs to buy it for you? It’s actually quite the opposite; enjoy loads of chocolate on sale and stack up for the following period as well.
2. Enjoy some games
Are you not that happy for being single on Valentine’s Day? Try killing off some zombies or shooting someone’s head off and purchase some awesome games. You can find a couple of awesome games on amazon.
3. Save money
If you don’t have a date, you don’t have to spend money on one. Simply use the money you planned spending on Valentine’s Day to buy something nice for yourself. If you haven’t planned spending money at all, then celebrate the success of not having to spend any money.
4. Spend time with friends
You more than likely have some friends you have ignored for a while now and it’s started getting so awkward that you don’t even know what to ask them anymore. Well, enjoy the free time and figure out what you can say and reconnect with them.
5. Meet other people
You are not the only single person on Valentine’s Day so if you really want to do something involving people, try connecting to other Valentine’s Day singles. Facebook, Tinder or Twitter are all great places to start.
6. Do something you always wanted to do
Did you ever want to do something and couldn’t do because you were in a relationship? Yes, exactly the thing you are thinking of right now. Why wait? Today is as a good of a time as any so stop thinking about a special someone and be that special someone.
7. Be grateful you’re not spending the day with the wrong person
There is nothing quite as hurtful as being with someone you do not want to be with. The feeling is even worse if you don’t even know that’s the wrong person but they do. Be happy you do not have to experience either of those feeling this Valentine’s Day.
8. Enjoy not having to wax, shave or do anything involving looking sharp for your date
Of course personal hygiene is a must but let’s face it, at least once in your life you simply did not feel like doing anything regarding your body hair but had to because of someone. Enjoy not having to do anything you do not want to do!
9. Avoid public awkwardness
First dates are always a bit awkward but first dates on Valentine’s Day tend to be the most awkward of them all, especially if you are surrounded by other people. It’s a lot funnier to just go out on Valentine’s Day and see other couples struggle with the awkwardness of their dates.
10. Spend time with someone who really matters
Do not let yourself think there is something wrong with you or feel like Valentine’s Day is just for a certain kind of people. Enjoy not having someone telling you what you can and cannot do for your relationship and enjoy the company of what should be the most important person in your life: YOU!
Valentine’s Day is just another day in the calendar. If you really want to feel fulfilled, spend each and every day as you would spend Valentine’s Day: happy, joyful and loving.
Every day is special.
