Valentine’s Day is definitely not the most fun day of the year to be single. Between all of the couples on dates filling up every single restaurant and the elaborate plans of friends to spend their days with their true loves, it can actually be a pretty lonely holiday. Though nobody needs to have anyone in their life to be complete, it’s tough to feel left out.
Luckily, it doesn’t have to totally suck. When you think about it, this romantic holiday has some pretty sweet perks (no pun intended). Hello, candy, independence and flowers. And what’s even better is that you can make the choice whether or not to spend the holiday alone, with friends, or both.
Whether you’re spending the day alone or with some friends, these are the best things to do if you’re single on Valentine’s Day… And none of them require finding a date, crying, or feeling left out. You deserve it and you’ll feel a lot more refreshed than if you stay home eating ice cream and watching rom-coms.
