6 Things To Do On Valentine’s Day 2018 If You’re Single
For some, the mere thought of Valentine’s Day can put them into panic mode. Although now it’s often considered just a commercial holiday, so to speak, in which greeting card companies, florists, and chocolatiers charge far more than usual, it still doesn’t stop some people from re-examining their relationship status. It’s not always easy to be single on a day that celebrates romantic love.
So if you’re single, why not celebrate you and that amazing ability you have to love. Love, in all its forms, is worth celebrating. Here are some ways to celebrate yourself this Valentine’s Day.
#1: Celebrate Galentine’s Day:
If you’re single and you have a bunch of single friends, then Galentine’s Day is always a great option. You’re not just celebrating yourself and your friends, but the love you have for each other. In order to celebrate your love, you can plan a girl’s night or just celebrate the day by going to your favorite spot and gossiping like you all used to do.
#2: Focus On All The Great Things You Have in Your Life:
Look around at all you have in your life. Look at your friends, your family, your career, your support network. You have lots to be really grateful for and lots of things to focus on that are positive and leading you in the right direction. If it helps, start a gratitude journal to help keep perspective.
#3: Indulge in Something You Love:
You don’t have to be in a relationship to celebrate the things you love. You don’t need a partner to do the things you want or to go out. So, instead of getting into the depression, indulge yourself in the things that you love. This could be buying a sexy lingerie, buy your favorit4 flowers or even go to your favorite restaurant to make yourself feel special.
#4: Make Yourself a Fancy Dinner:
With the ridiculous prices at restaurants on Valentine’s Day, taking yourself out to a fancy dinner, perhaps may not be worth it. Instead, try making a recipe you’ve always wanted to try — or order your favorite takeout meal — and break out the champagne.
Valentine’s Day all about you and loving yourself, and if you feel like flirting, then, by all means, go for it. It’s worth pointing out that Valentine’s Day is a big day for online dating. Although January 7, according to Plenty of Fish, was the biggest day of the year for online dating, other research has shown that “peak season” extends through January right up to V-Day. So, if flirting on Valentine’s Day is what you want to do, then it’s a perfect time to do so.
#6: Just Ignore It:
This year Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday — not exactly a day of the week where people go all out, even those in relationships. So if you’re not feeling the love this Valentine’s Day, why not just ignore it? You can come home from work, put on your favorite jammies, order a whole pizza that you don’t have to share, and have yourself fun time to roll solo.
Valentine’s Day can be romantic, but romance doesn’t always have to be about love. You have options — you always have jammies and pizza — so no matter what you choose, you’ll have a fine time for yourself.
