How To Spend Valentine's Day When You're Single.

Updated on February 11, 2016

February 14 is fast approaching. It's almost that time of the year again. Where many people exchange cards, heart-shaped candies and chocolates, gifts or flowers with their special someone or “valentine.”

But what if you're single and don’t have a significant other to be romantic with on Valentine’s Day? What do you do?

Don't get frustrated if you're single this V-Day. Don't be jealous to those couples you know could be sharing cute photos and lovey-dovey status updates on social media. Being alone is cheaper, easier, and it can be turn out to be more fun! In other words, spending Valentine's Day alone can be totally AWESOME.

So if you find yourself single this day of love, here are the top 5 things you can do:


Go out and have some fun. As we all know, V-Day is normally a lavish affair where you spend money on your significant other. Well, since you're single this V-Day, turn that around and treat yourself! And you don’t have to worry about spending your money on gifts that don’t make it to the end of the week, take half of that money and spend it on yourself. Buy yourself that gift you didn’t get during the holidays. Go out and have fun. No one will even notice. They are all too busy. From now on, declare it a "Me Day" and do whatever you want.


Want to have an athletic body? Want to learn how to dance hip-hop? Wish you could cook that dish? Why not? Challenge yourself to do something new you haven't done before. And since February 14 is Sunday, it is a great day to start planning up for what to do on Monday. You don't need a new year to start something new, all you need is Monday. So get up on your butt and start doing something cool and new.


Everybody have at least one hobby. The hobby that calms your nerves and usually gets neglected when life gets too damn busy. And since you're single on Valentine’s Day, why not take the opportunity to catch-up on something you miss which you haven’t did in months or years? Get back into playing basketball, football or the sports you like. Do whatever you want and do whatever makes you happy. It will help you forget about Valentine’s Day and will give you a sense of accomplishment when you’ve completed the task.


You want to throw a party? Why not? You want to attend a party? Why not? As I always stated, "Do Whatever You Want". Forget going to a romantic and fancy dinner and trying to impress your date sitting across from you at a dimly lit restaurant. Just invite all your single friends over and pump up the tunes, whip out some party games and just have a good time. And hey who knows, maybe a friend brings a single friend along for you to connect with. Don’t be embarrassed to do this. Everyone else at the party will be single as well, so it’s a great place to meet someone.


You don't feel like to do the first top 4 things? Well, maybe online dating is for you. I know that you all heard about ONLINE DATING. There are a lot of online dating apps and websites that you can try on. And since it is V-Day, I know that there are a lot of men or women out there that are singles too. And hey, who knows, maybe you find your valentine on online dating apps or sites. And maybe, on the next V-Day, you are no longer alone and you can spend the day of love with the love of your life.

It may be frustrating to be single on V-Day, but spending time with people you love is what matters on Valentine's Day.

You deserve to be happy even if you are single, so do everything in your power to make this day a positive occasion and not one where you lament being single.
