If you’ve been unsuccessful at scoring yourself a date on Valentine’s Day, you’re not alone. An unknown number of singles will be spending V-day on their own, but don’t fret, there are lots of things that you can do to make this Hallmark Holiday special too.
The general consensus this year seems to be that couples should not have to wait until cupid’s day to profess their love for one another. Love should be shown all year round, sporadically. If you’re single, this means less pressure on you.
Get together with Girlfriends, or guy friends
Start your own tradition. Granted, not all of you will be single at the same time but certainly you’ll be able to find someone who is. Believe me, there is no shortage of single people in any group. If your friends are non-traditional, perhaps you can gather as a whole group to spend the evening doing something non-couple-esque.
Go to a Single’s Party
Local establishments host single parties these on V-day, to accommodate the singles and non-traditionals – and of course revenue. It’s a great way to meet new local singles, but go in with no intensions – just have a good time and just be you.
Spend it with your kids
A child’s love for this Hallmark holiday is contagious; it’s impossible not to get into it. Whether you take your kids to a movie, dinner and a movie, or just stay home and make crafts or watch a flick, children appreciate small gestures and love their parents unconditionally; therefore, they are the best dates. Don’t have kids? Nieces and nephews work just the same, and I’m sure their parents will appreciate the evening off.
Whatever you decide to do just remember – you are never alone. If you want to stay home, put on some lipstick, your favorite attire, and pour yourself a glass of wine.
