3 Ways To Spend Valentine's Day If You're Single

3 Ways To Spend Valentine's Day If You're Single

Enjoy Valentine's even if you are without a significant other.


With Valentine's day coming around the corner, many find themselves single. With the social pressure of doing something for the holiday instead of wallowing in your lack of a relationship, the search is on for fun ways to spend the day. Here are three things you could do as a single 20-something-or-other for Valentine’s day.

1. Movie Night

While this may seem like a cliché or a “couples only” way to spend the night, going to the movies on Valentine’s day is usually worth it. There are always a few sappy romantic “comedies” and movies that come out in early February that are geared around the holiday. Why not phone up a few of your gal pals and have a girl’s night at the theatre. Fifty Shades Darker is the sequel to a raunchy adult novel that was met with mixed reviews. The first film didn’t hold up very well with the fans of the books and the acting was a bit all over the place. Whether you are the fan of the franchise or enjoy seeing movies ironically just to have a good laugh Fifty Shades Darker might be a good choice for any movie goers.

2. Go Out On A “Frate”

To coin a phrase me and my friends use, a Frate, or friend date, is when you and a close friend do all the couple-y date night things without the intimacy of being in a relationship. Going out to dinner, walking around downtown, going to the club if that’s your thing — these are just a few ideas of how you can spend the night. So what if you’re single, you can be single together. Whether you are a guy or girl enjoying the freedom of the single life, treat yourself to a night on the town.

3. Hooters

Now if you’re getting out of a breakup and need a pick me up, Hooters might be the way to go. As advertised on their website, participating Hooters restaurants have a promotion where if you bring a picture of your ex to shred in their shredder, you get free wings. This promotion can turn what is usually a negative into a positive. If you are one who is happy to be out of a relationship than enjoy some delicious victory wings. Even if you aren't of age yet to drink your sorrows away, there is always fun to be had at Hooters.

Never sweat a holiday like Valentine's day. Its a marketer's field day to promote us as consumers to buy more stuff and get cute red and pink themed versions of things we can find any time of the year but now it's for double the price. If you're content with being single then just enjoy yourself. And remember, February 15th, Valentine's candy goes on sale so don't hesitate to eat those feelings.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
