It's that time of year again... Valentine's Day. As someone who has spent several Valentine's Days without a man (single girls, I'm talking to you), it doesn't have to be a sad, depressing day of pizza and watching Lifetime movies in the dark! Don't get me wrong, I love me some Lifetime movie marathons, but you shouldn't have to feel like there's something wrong with you if you aren't in a relationship on Valentine's Day.

Although I am lucky enough to have my wonderful boyfriend, I have plenty of experience on living the single-girl lifestyle. Whether you have a hot date with a box of Franzia or with your man, you can still have a great time, and I am here to show you how.



Get out of the house.

There's nothing worse than sitting at home on Instagram, flipping through all the mushy pic stitches of girls bragging about the life-size teddy bear her boyfriend surprised her with. You know the phrase "pics or it didn't happen"? We believe you. We assume your boyfriend got you something nice today. No need to rub in it.


Pamper yourself.

As Drake says, go ahead and get your "hair done, nails done, everything did." Let's be honest, getting a fresh cut and color makes you feel like a million bucks. You get that gel manicure that's a little more expensive, or even some long acrylics if you're feeling feisty!


You'll be rolling in money.

Who wants to cuddle with a person when you can snuggle up to a full wallet? You won't have to spend a nickel on presents or dinner. All of your hard-earned moolah will go straight to whatever YOU want! Want another round of drinks at the bar? Why, yes, sir, I do.


Three words: Girl's. Night. Out.

Lay out that outfit that you've been dying to wear, but never felt like you had the right occasion for it. Well, tonight is the night that you will rock the hell out of it. Rolling in to a party with your squad, you are all sure to turn some heads. Confidence is sexy, ladies.


But be sure you do not resort to Tinder.

Let's be honest, we've all been there. Somehow hearing a million cheesy pick up lines mixed in with some kind of sexual joke doesn't really make you feel much better. Your future husband is, nine times out of 10, not gonna be found on Tinder. Although he does have a really cute dog in his profile picture, he is mostly on there for one reason and one reason only. You are better than that.
