5 Ways to Survive Valentine's Day if your Single

With Valentine's Day around the corner, a majority feel anxious over excited considering the fact that most of us are single. Well, Valentine's Day does not have to be all about hearts and love, it can be all about you! Here are 5 things you can do on Valentine's Day if you're single.

Invite all your girlfriends over and watch a scary movie

Nothing is better than being with your best friends, especially when your all in the same boat with your lack of a date on this "special" day. A scary movie just makes it all the better, keeping your mind off hugs and kisses and more on demons and ghosts.

Cook yourself dinner

Obviously, you don't want to go out to eat by yourself when everyone is head over heels in love around you. Look on Pinterest and find an extravagant and fun dinner idea and get to cooking. You can play some fun music and dance to the beat of the vegetable chopping.

Go shopping

Nothing is better than retail therapy! Shop 'til you drop, and I promise you that your lack of a valentine will not cross your mind at all. Buy the shoes and don't forget those sassy earrings.

Don't forget the SALE candy

After you have survived this awful holiday, indulge in chocolate hearts on top of chocolate hearts. Hit up Walmart and go crazy, you deserve it!

Go to a fun workout class

While working out isn't the most fun thing in the world, going to a Zumba class or kickboxing will get you hyped up and take out that frustration on your demise against Valentine's Day. Get some friends to go with you and get some laughs out of it too!

Even though Valentine's Day is literally every negative adjective in the book, it is only a 24-hour holiday, which means a full 24 hours of having the most fun ever. Do one (or all) of these things and you won't even think twice about the fact that your single!!

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
