5 Things To Do When You're Single AF On Valentine's Day

January 14th has come and gone this year and that only means one thing: Valentine’s Day is less than one month away.

If you’re not currently in a relationship or haven't met anyone who could be a potential V-Day date prospect, chances are you’ll be spending this love filled holiday with your one and only: yourself.

Honestly, most single people are cynical and straight up b*tchy once this holiday rolls around, but I don’t understand why. So you don’t have a significant other to celebrate with? That is no reason to dread this one day out of the year. Take a deep breath, because everything is going to be just fine. It’s 24 hours and you will survive it, I promise.

When you’re single on Valentine’s Day it can practically be like a second birthday, the day is all about you, so do with it what you please. Take the day to celebrate the fact that you’re focusing on yourself, you’re not putting up with any f*ckboy’s drama, and you're a bad a** independent woman who doesn't need a man to make her Valentine’s Day enjoyable.

Netflix n' Chill Alone

The best part of Netflix n' Chill-ing by yourself is that you can actually watch your favorite shows and movies without an interruption by hormone-raged guys. Personally, I’ve been planning my Valentine’s Day shows since the last episode of How To Get Away With Murder aired. I do have a date of February 14th, it’s with my couch and a bottle of wine. That’s better than a guy, anyways.

Enjoy the Empty Gym

There aren’t many days that the gym isn't packed with people, but Valentine’s Day is always one of them. While everyone else is busy being out with ‘the love of their life’ you can be in the gym doing whatever you want without a wait. No girl's judging you on the amount or lack of makeup you wear to the gym and no guy's obnoxiously staring at your butt in those pants. Too bad V-Day isn't more than once a year.


Yeah, getting a Valentine’s Day gift is nice, but how often does a guy actually pick out exactly what you want without you specifically telling them? Never. And being single means you don’t have to worry about how you’re going to make your boyfriend believe the new clothes you got him for V-Day is because you thought he would like them, not because you’re tired of seeing that same graphic tee and cargo shorts every week. Instead of spending money on someone else, go out and buy yourself a Valentine's Day gift. February 14th is all about love, and no one said you can’t love yourself.

Girl's Night

It’s virtually impossible that you are the only single girl in your social circle. They say misery loves company so why not spend the night together. Do everything your jerk of an ex-boyfriend never wanted to do. Play old Britney Spears music, put a face mask on, drink too much wine and eat cookies. Honestly, by the end of the night, you’ll be feeling bad for all those girls stuck in heels that hurt and pretending that the salad they ordered is as enjoyable as being home in yoga pants and watching a movie. You’re winning, trust me.

Family Time

If all else fails, turn to those people who love you more than anyone else. They’ve been your ‘valentine’ since before your middle school boyfriend brought you a stuffed bear from Walgreens and heart happened candy. Your parents are bound to have a nice home cooked meal for you and won't hesitate to boost your ego when they remind you that you’re too perfect for anyone else.

It doesn't matter how you spend Valentine’s Day– as long as it doesn't include you being miserable and drunk texting your ex-boyfriend, everything is going to be ok.

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
