    Everyone says valentine is for lovers and it maybe rightly so, but what do single people who are not in a relationship do on this 'romantic day'. Just out of curiosity. Is it just another day or it is a day to loathe those who are in love and receiving gifts

      I think it will probably only be couples that really notice it is valentine's day.

        Not really when you have them right in your face, flowers and gifts being sent to the offices to surprise respective lovers. I doubt that you can't help but notice

      Why not take yourself out on a date?  Buy some flowers and chocolates, go to the movies and enjoy your own company.  Before I met my husband, I lived alone for 8 years and would regularly pamper and treat myself and not just on valentines.  You have to love yourself first, even whey you do meet someone.

      Oh, and don't forget to send some valentine cards to someone that you like.

      I believe they just go out with their other single friends. Not everybody is attached you know

    I would treat it as any other day.  If you want to go out, go out.  You'll likely find someone just like you out there.

    I've been single now since '05 and what I do is do something special for family and friends. Get cards or make them for my parents and kids, maybe a lavish little treat that they wouldn't buy for themselves. It makes the day a bit brighter for me to know I've made the effort to pay it forward and hopefully they will do the same.

      I bet they love to know someone loves them even if they to are 'alone' on Valentines day

    I just ignore St Valentine's Day - no point on going out on a day when all the prices have been inflated and you are surrounded by people carrying flowers or balloons!

    I don't even notice it's St. Valentine's Day, whether I'm single or not.

    Last year, On Feb. 13, 2010, I went to a Salsa dance party. Alone. Not knowing how to dance.

    The guy I asked to accompany me did not show up.  I met somebody at the party.  The "no show guy" I met the next day, it was a blind date.  The only reason I remember it was because it was St. Valentine's day activities.

    None of those guys became anything for me.  But I started dancing, that changed my life in many unexpected ways.  This "going alone" was part of "date yourself" recommendation from "The complete Idiot's guide to dating."

    Celebrate or don't, just be creative, do things for yourselves - you have the luxury of the total control over the decision vs. struggling to reach the compromise with the loved one.  Being single might be a blessing.  Have fun!  P.S.  Fun does not have to be expensive, romance should not be commercialized.

      I guess one just has to be happy with oneself whatever the celebration and whether you have someone to celebrate it with

    Well, I make someone's day by giving small tokens. For myself, I buy a new fragrance or treat myself to a hearty meal.

    Well, I'm single but that fact does not deter me from having a good time on Valentine's. It's nice that some of my friends are single as well so we pass away the time together-enjoying what we all love doing, singing.

      Good for you!  It's a day that can make you feel unloved but only if you let it.  Friends are fantastic and probably have a much less selfish approach than a new sexual partner.  There are many kinds of love - friendship is very special.  Having said that, I still felt like a complete loser when I was alone on Valentines day but there again, I didn't have nice friends like yours.  smile
