What to do when you’re single on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day over the past few years has also become singleton’s awareness day. Not everybody cares if they are in a relationship or not on Valentine’s Day, but sometimes it helps to stay busy. Here are things to do when you are single on the day of love.

Have a pamper day

Everybody deserves a pamper day once in a while. Whether you go to a spar, get your nails and hair done or just have a do it yourself, home treatment will take your mind off the day of love. You can do this with friends or just on your own. Valentine’s Day may be a day for love but that doesn’t just apply to romantic love. Love yourself and treat your body to some pampering.

Go out with friends and family

Spending the day with friends and family who love you is just as good as spending it with your other half. Not only do you get to have an awesome day with the important people in your life, but you can even treat each other to presents, especially if they are single.

Have a movie and duvet day

There is nothing better than spending a Sunday in bed watching all of your favourite movies and scoffing that cheap Valentine’s chocolate. Pop on some Disney movies, something fun and not too romantic – don’t want to remind yourself that you are alone on Valentine’s Day. Maybe even invite some friends over for a good old fashion sleepover.

Go shopping

Just because you don’t have somebody else to buy your teddy bears and chocolates this month, doesn’t mean you can’t go out and treat yourself. Everybody should spend time on themselves every so often, so spend the day shopping and picking up some goodies. The chances are it won’t be as busy as normal, because all of the couples will be at the cinema or at restaurants.

Treat is as a normal day

Just because it is Valentine’s Day it doesn’t mean that you have to do something special. Treat it as a normal day and go about it as you would any other. Do some work, go for a walk and go to the shops. It’s just another day in the year.

Are you single this Valentine’s Day? What are your plans?
