It’s not easy being single on this godforsaken day. A lot of us are struggling to plan our day and figure what we can actually do on the ‘day that must not be named’. Well, in the case your brain isn’t working, here are some ideas to get you started.

1. Host A Valentine’s Day Hater party

All haters unite! There are many people like you, who aren’t a fan of this day. Get together and chit-chat about your common dislike about this mush fest of a day.

2. Go On A Blind Date

I’m sure your friends could fix you up on a blind date. There is a weird thrill in exploring the unknown on Valentine’s Day. It’s possible that the person you’ve been avoiding all this time because you’ve been unsure, might actually just surprise you with the most romantic date ever. Or you’ll crash and burn, either way, you tried.

3. Give Dating Apps A Chance

Try out apps like Happn, Hinge, Tinder, etc. Every app that you’ve cringed at before, could actually find you the love of your life. Anything is possible!

4. Go For A Movie With All Of Your Single Friends

Gather all your single friends and go for a movie. Whatever the genre you’ll prefer, be it horror, rom-com, or even action movies. Get out there and enjoy the day cause there is no reason you can’t!

5. Have Dinner With Your Family

It’s the best day to spend some quality time with your family. Cook them some dinner, or order in. Remember, love doesn’t just mean a significant other, it could also include everyone we love.

6. Babysit For Parents Who’d Like To Celebrate

Many couples would want to go out with their partners and celebrate this day. Unfortunately, many of them have children. So, make yourself useful this day and babysit for them. Good karma anyone?

7. Order In

Stay home, and order in. The entire city will be out on dinners and dates. You’d be better off at home! Plus, it’s a working day the next day, so you rather call it an early night.

8. Pamper Yourself

Treat yourself to a spa day! Massages, manicures, pedicures, and the works, go all out. Make a beautiful day out of it, filled with some quality you time.

9. Visit A Cake Shop

Stuff your face with some cake! Go to a nice bakery, and go try different types of cake. You know what they say, nothing comforts you better than some chocolate!

10. Stock Up On Some Ice Cream

Yep, it’s that time of the year. The day that probably sells the most amount of ice cream. If you’re feeling down and out, stock up on ice cream, play a romantic movie and give into the feels. You never know, prince charming could be around the corner.

It’s not the best day for single people to enjoy, but it’s up to you to make it a fun day anyway. Go try these things out, and let us know what you’re planning to do in the comments below.
