For the first time in two years I am single on Valentine’s Day. And I won’t lie – I’m really excited.
When you’re in a relationship Valentine’s Day is a very cut and dry holiday. But what about when you’re single? Easy, the playing field is open! You don’t have to do any of the normal romantic activities with a significant other. Instead, let’s celebrate the person you adore most – You.
Below is a compilation of ways to spend tomorrow’s holiday when you’re single and loving it.
The Single Girl’s Guide to Valentine’s
1. Make your favourite meal
As a girlfriend, I’m pretty amazing. I will make you your favourite meal on Valentine’s Day. Don’t believe me? I remade P.F. Chang’s lemon chicken one year from scratch and it was incredibly difficult and delicious. But this year, it’s about what I want to eat. So say hello to Thai food galore all night long.
2. Take a bath
I don’t need someone to draw me a bath with candles. I have hands. I’m going to break out all my vanilla and lavender candles and have a coconut oil and epsom salt bath with my favourite romantic ballads playing in the background. Boys, get on my level.
3. Buy a plant for your home
Who wants flowers that die by Friday? Go out and by yourself a beautiful plant to flourish in your home. Trader Joe’s currently has some beautiful succulents in ceramic vases for $7 that I think would look gorgeous on my window sill.
4. Dress up
I don’t need a dinner date to put on my best lipstick. Instead, I’m going to look amazing at work, the store, and anywhere else I decide to go tomorrow.
5. Eat some chocolate
Whether you’re having a Elle Woods chocolate box night or have a sweet tooth like none other, treat yo’self to a little chocolate. And if you wait midnight, it’s going to be hella cheap. I’m seeing some discount dark chocolate in my future.
6. Buy yourself a drink
If you’re someone who goes to the bar on Tuesdays (I don’t judge you, you do you) then buy yourself a drink. Don’t sit around waiting for someone to make a move. Own that you are wonderful and your standards are too high for anyone and buy yourself a boozy drink to celebrate. Just make sure to call a taxi to go home.
7. Have a RomCom night
If you’re a homebody like me, maybe you’ll enjoy watching movies on your futon in pajamas with soy ice cream. Netflix and Hulu have a great selection of romantic comedies currently, so you should be able to get your mix of “Aw” and “That’s adorable” and, if you’re like me, “This is horribly unrealistic!”
