Single this valentines? Don’t be bitter about it! Just because you’re single doesn’t mean you have to lock yourself up, sobbing about the reasons for your single status, whilst watching a romantic comedy (with the company of Ben and Jerry’s!). It’s just like any other day except that you can spread the love without being perceived as a complete idiot! And remember, chocolates are always put on sale the next day, so there’s nothing to feel sorry about! It’s a win-win situation for everyone! We have come up with some great ideas, just in case you need a little inspiration for ways to spread the love and to keep you busy on that not-so dreaded Valentine’s day after all!
Bake and Share! Baking is the best way to spend the day! You can still have a laugh even if it turns out to be a complete disaster (I mean how bad can you be)! But if it does work out to be a success, you’ll not only feel great about it, you can boast about it on Instagram/Snapchat, and you can share those freshly baked cookies with your friends and family, showing them that you’re not entirely bitter about Valentine’s day.
Single Girls Night In! it’s the best excuse to host a night-in with your favourite girls! It’s the only time you’ll be able to get together without the annoying friend who’s in a relationship, and brings up her boyfriend in every single conversation. So enjoy it whilst it lasts. You can entertain your guests by having a spa night, a movie night (which let’s face it, is so much more fun when you’re in great company) or just a gossip night (our favourite kind)!
Loving yourself doesn’t have to stop there! Sit back, relax, pamper yourself, take a bubble bath whilst sipping on that all-expensive bottle of red wine you’ve had sitting on the shelf for ages, saving it for a special occasion. Indulge with some half-price love heart chocolates, or even order take-out! Do whatever makes you happy, treat yourself!
Last but not least, make sure you embrace your single status! Once you realise that you’re not missing much from not being in a relationship you won’t even care that it’s valentine’s day! You don’t have to worry about buying thoughtful, expensive and extravagant gifts for anyone but yourself. You don’t have to argue with anyone about what to watch, where to go, or what to do. You don’t have to compromise over anything (especially wardrobe space). So be thankful you have this time to yourself, single life can be great, so just have fun with it!
