Not all of us have a date for Valentine's Day, and frankly, that is more than okay. Valentine's Day has plenty of novelty fun to go along with it, and a lack of a significant other should be no reason to hinder your fun. Whether you love the chocolates, the romance, the valentines, the music, the flowers or the excuse to poke fun at sappy couples, there is always a reason to celebrate the day of love.
Think of your favorite people, show them some love, and show yourself some love, too! Love comes in all shapes and sizes, and we should start using Valentine's Day as another excuse to share our appreciation for the ones we love. Below are 14 ways to celebrate Valentine's Day whether you've got a friend or something more.
1. Call your mom and dad.
You love them. They love you. It's the day of love. Just do it.
2. Watch a rom com.
3. Eat more chocolate than would be acceptable on February 13.
If you don't incorporate chocolate into all your meals on Valentine's Day, is it even Valentine's Day?

6. Compliment a stranger.
7. Tell someone a joke.

Holidays call for festive outfits and accessories. Break out of the heart necklaces while you're at it.
