Have Dinner with Friends
Being single on Valentine’s Day can be a real downer, but it doesn’t have to be totally miserable! Instead of sitting around and feeling sorry for yourself, be more proactive about your situation. Find a way to enjoy the day!
Gather your fellow single friends and go out for dinner. If you want, you can even get dressed up and splurge on something you wouldn’t normally order! Treat yourself to your favorite foods and focus on your pals. You may even forget about Valentine’s Day in the process!
Here are some more ideas of fun Valentine’s Day activities for singles.
Not having plans on Valentine’s Day isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If you’ve got a gaping hole in your schedule that you aren’t sure how to fill, use that time to get pampered!
Go to a spa. Get a massage or a mani-pedi. Head to the salon and get a sexy new hairstyle. Do something that will make you feel like a thousand bucks! You deserve it.
Buy Yourself a Present
So massages, mudbaths, and pedicures aren’t really your thing. Pamper yourself in a different way: buy something for yourself.
Whether it’s a new technological gadget, a bouquet of beautiful flowers, or a brand new outfit, treat yourself to something great. You’ll feel better in no time!
Send Funny Valentines
You don’t even have to avoid the holiday altogether to have fun on Valentine’s Day! Instead of dwelling on your singlehood, take the opportunity to do something humorous instead.
Find hilarious valentines or ecards to give to your friends. They’ll appreciate the gesture, and you’ll all get a good laugh!
Photo Scavenger Hunt
Another activity you could do with a group of similarly single friends is to organize a photo scavenger hunt! Come up with a list of items/locations around town that would make a great photo op, and then divide up into teams to see who can take pictures with the most items in a certain amount of time.
This is a really fun activity that is sure to take your mind off of your dating woes!
If you’re looking to avoid disgusting couples on Valentine’s Day, head to your favorite club! Very few couples would want to spend the holiday in that kind of location, so it will be chock full of other singles who are in the same boat as you!
Grab some friends or go it alone; either way, you can have a fun, enjoyable night dancing your cares away!
Junk Food and Movies
If you aren’t really in the mood to go out, you can still have a good time at home! Order a pizza. Grab some Ben & Jerry’s. Stuff your face with chocolate. Eat whatever junk you feel like eating and don’t let yourself feel bad about it! Then, pop in some of your favorite comedy films for a night full of laughter.
Kick back and relax! By tomorrow, Valentine’s Day will be in the past.
Take Care of your Single Friends
You obviously know how it feels to be single on Valentine’s Day, so why not do something to brighten the spirits of your single friends? Buy the ladies flowers! Hang out and play video games! Be there for them and make them feel loved.
Be thankful for what you have! Who needs romance when you have such wonderful friends?
Do Something Fun
Hate dancing and hate shopping? That’s okay! We all like doing different things. Maybe one of these activity ideas would better suit your tastes:
- Laser Tag
All of the above would make for a busy and entertaining night out!
Get Your Bake On
If you’re the type of person who enjoys cooking and consuming tasty treats, spend Valentine’s Day in the kitchen! Throw together your favorite baked goods, and then share them with your friends and family. You can even gather them up and take them to work the next day. Your loved ones and coworkers will be thrilled!
But make sure to save some for yourself, too!
