How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day Single

Valentine’s Day is coming up on Tuesday and for some of us without romantic partners, the holiday can be a bit of an emotional challenge. With this being said, even if people are alone on valentine’s day, it’s not the end of the world. With there being options like hanging out with friends or enjoying time on your own by visiting sites like (in the hopes of satisfying needs), valentine’s day doesn’t have to be a miserable one.

So, instead of sulking or starting an imaginary conversation of ‘Why does nobody love me?” I wanted to give you six suggestions on how you can celebrate the holidays by yourself or with friends.

How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day Single

Watch a Romantic Comedy

Romantic movies are a great way to watch unrealistic love stories unfold without meddling in anyone’s drama. Take two hours out your Valentine’s Day and watch How to Be Single or catch up on those Oscar nominations!

Plan a Galentine’s Day

To put into simpler terms – the best way cure loneliness is to seek people. If you know that this Valentine’s Day could be emotionally draining plan a Galentine’s Day that could turn it around. This could lead to a fun friends date that might include a delicious brunch, a yoga class, or possibly a manicure.

Donate to a Charity

Instead of wallowing in your own sadness give hope to someone else who may need it more. Donate to a charity of your choice or take part in a charity Valentine’s Day fundraiser. Even when I had a significant other, I would always suggest purchasing roses where the proceeds went to a charitable organization because it showed more generosity and love.

Download a Dating App

If you are tired of being single, try to change it. I’ve had multiple friends meet their partners off of the internet whether it be on Tinder, Bumble, or Ok Cupid. Don’t knock it until you try it.

Treat Yourself to Something Risque

So it may be a touch crasse to talk about, but there are certain…connotations attached with Valentines Day that we all know. You may be missing out on this aspect, and if that’s the case then you could consider indulging. Why not get something high quality that will last for your lust? You can go for a physical route with some toys, or perhaps consider choosing to invest in some of the more adult-focused media out there. If you’re not sure where to start, you could try reading a live jasmin review and go from there. Self-love is important too.

Buy Yourself a Gift

Treat yourself to those shoes that have been on your wishlist for months! You don’t need a significant other to shower you in gifts when you have yourself.

Bake a Dessert

Find a recipe hidden on your Pinterest board and indulge! Personally, I’ve had my eye on this Marsha’s Baking Addiction mini red velvet and vanilla cheesecake recipe that looks delicious.
