14  Ways To Spread Love This Valentine's Day Despite Your Relationship Status

Valentine's Day kind of sucks for some people. Maybe we're single and eating our feelings, maybe the only one we want to see is thousands of miles away, or maybe we downright just don't care about what Valentine's Day is all about. In the 5th Century, St. Valentine's Day was not just about romance and chocolates, it was a celebration of love, family, and sacrifice. If you can't find a reason to get out of bed this Thursday, try and spread some kindness!

1. Write a letter to your grandpa or father.

You don't need no man!

2. Plan a girls night in.

Grab the girls, harp over being single for about ten minutes, then let it go and have a great night!

3. Post Pals.

My absolutely most favorite idea--send an email or letter to a child who is severely ill to brighten their day. Click here to pick a pal and put a smile on their face.

4. Leave random notes everywhere. Tell nobody it was you.

Leave a "you're beautiful!" sticky note on the mirror. Tape a dollar to the vending machine. Leave a letter of gratitude for your waitress to find when you leave the table.

5. Send a quick thank you note to someone who has helped you.

6. Compliment a stranger's smile.

7. Surprise your dog with a nice big bone.

Who says puppies can't be Valentines?!

8. Clean your entire room and light some candles.

Self love counts, too!

9. Go on a comment spree on Instagram.

Go through your Instagram feed and leave some nice emojis and comments on ALL the selfies.

10. Bring donuts to work.

You'll be the Employee of the Day.

11. Write a poem for your lover.

But I'm not good at poetry... yeah yeah... how do you know? If you're in a relationship this Valentine's Day do something different and show them how much you love and appreciate them.

12. Don't write that complaint letter you've been thinking about writing.

13. Instead, leave a really nice review for your favorite restaurant.

14. Hug your best friend.

You don't do it enough.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

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.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

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.

11655

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.
