If couple massages aren’t in your future try celebrating valentines day solo. With these ten ideas, your valentines day should be filled with laughter, love, and good times.
1. Make plans.
Whether you decide to hang out with friends or family, making plans is a huge part of celebrating valentines day solo. If you don’t, you might drive yourself insane. Don’t let it happen, go out and celebrate your sweet independence.
2. Buy yourself something nice.
Who ever said you can’t gift yourself presents- said no one ever. Buy yourself something nice, and splurge because you are totally worth it.
3. Avoid places couples would go.
No need to wallow in sadness over the romantic things couples are doing for one another- avoid fancy restaurants and couple activities. Try visiting places you know couples won’t visit, such as bars, or museums.
4. Pamper yourself with a relaxing night in.
Give yourself that much needed attention and treat yourself to a relaxing, stress-free night in. Take a bath and listen to your favorite audio book. Or snuggle up with your furry friend and catch-up on your favorite shows.
5. Host a singles dinner party.
Nothings better than inviting over your dearest friends to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Drink, laugh, and enjoy the bittersweet life of independence together. Toast to your future successes and endeavors.
6. Travel somewhere.
Valentines day solo should never be unimpressive. Get a head start on your trip and travel somewhere exciting. While your friends are enjoying a fancy meal at a local restaurant, you could be partying it up in Amsterdam or lying on a beach in Tulum, Mexico. The possibilities are endless.
7. Stay off of social media.
The last thing you want is to be scrolling through Facebook or Instagram on Valentines day. Delete the apps off your device to enjoy a stress free day. Re-download them once the sharing craze has passed.
8. Have a movie-marathon with your best friend.
Order a pizza and wings from your favorite pizza joint, crack open a few beers, and enjoy watching your favorite movie or TV shows. Nothings better than Netflix and chill. That’s the best way to celebrate valentines day solo.
9. Go out to your favorite bar and enjoy the live band.
Go out with your single friends to your favorite bar and toast to independence. Let loose and enjoy live bands or use your liquid courage and participate in karaoke night. Your night is guaranteed to be entertaining.
10. Don’t forget that you are worthy of love.
No need to stress about not having a valentine. You are worth it. For now, enjoy the single life, mingle, and you never know, you might hit it off with your soulmate.
