How to Enjoy Valentine's Day When You're Single

January pretty much flew by and Valentine’s Day is already next week. I haven’t had a Valentine in maybe 5 or 6 years, but even then, I don’t remember having a memorable day because of work, school, or a snowstorm ruining it for me. If you’re newly single or have no clue how to spend Valentine’s Day by yourself, here are a few suggestions for you to consider.

Go on a Vacation

Since going to Trini Carnival in 2013, I’ve almost always gone away on or close to Valentine’s Day. In other countries, I haven’t seen the excitement of the holiday and I’ve enjoyed myself without “hating” on others (some think I’m hating, but I could really care less). Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the mid-winter. It’s usually cold or snowing on the east coast, so going away to a city or country with a warm climate is a great option if you don’t like the cold.

Spend Time With Friends and Family

One thing I appreciate about singleness is having friends and family members that are single too. After a snowstorm cancelled my flight a few years back, I was able to do a simple Valentine’s Day with my best friend that included mani-pedis, dinner and a movie. We were able to catch up with each other, talking about school, work and family making it a great “Galentine’s” day out.

Have a Spa Day

Work hard? Treat yourself to a spa day. If you’re worried about spending a lot of money, search Groupon or Living Social for companies that are having deals. I’d suggest you look them up on Yelp for a review before purchasing, but a day a the spa is a great gift for yourself. Get a massage or facial and relax.

The whole point is to have a good time; even if you’re in a bad mood. Things could be so much worse than not having a Valentine. The best person you could ever love is yourself.

What are some other ways to enjoy Valentine’s Day as a single person?
