Today is Valentine’s Day and couples would have probably planned their big night out several weeks ago, with a fancy dinner and maybe a round of drinks after that too.
But if you are single and do not have a valentine to spend time with, do not worry. Here are some alternative ideas and activities that singles can do on Valentine’s Day and ensure that you can enjoy yourself too.
Have a singles night out
If you have friends or colleagues who are also single, you can come together as a group and enjoy a night out, soaking up each other’s company.
This need not be thought as a way for you to hook up – Valentine’s Day can also be used to celebrate pure friendships and the mere fact that you are not all alone in this world. So get all of your single friends together and have a ball of a time!
Go out and spend time doing something that you are passionate about
Why not indulge yourself on Valentine’s Day and spend the time doing something you are deeply passionate about, but are struggling to find time to do? For example, if you love cycling, why not take your trusty old bike out for a ride on Valentine’s Day and enjoy some solitude by yourself at the park?
Stay at home and indulge yourself
Valentine’s Day can also be spent staying at home and doing whatever you please – without having to think about the other half.
So if you like nothing more than to stay at home and curl up with a good book, then go right ahead and do it. While you are at it too, you can also consider tucking into that pint of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. Best of all, you won’t have to share it with anyone else. Just enjoy a night of freedom at home and completely let yourself loose.
Spend time helping a charity
Why should you mope around and feel sorry for yourself, just because you are not going out on Valentine’s Day? You could also consider helping a charity of your choice. For example, if you are a fan of cats and dogs, you could go to the SPCA and spend a couple of hours there, volunteering your services. It will make a world of difference in the lives of others, and you may feel much better and happier because of the satisfaction of doing something kind.
