Your Guide When You're Single on Valentine's Day
Valentine's Day.Valentine’s Day – the day for lovers. Every year some single gals lament being alone on Valentine’s Day while others embrace their singledom and enjoy the day anyway. The truth is, while Valentine’s Day is traditionally a day to spend with your partner, it doesn’t have to be a downer if you find yourself single! Why not make your single V-Day a great day by taking on some of these suggestions.
1. KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT ALONE
Whether you hate this day, dread this day or even love this day, everyone has been there at some point or will be there at some point. We all go through times when we are "single." Just because others are in a relationship doesn't mean you are any less desirable, valuable, attractive, loved, etc. Practice self-compassion and know that you are not alone. Whether you are in a relationship or not, it does not define you.
2. SCHEDULE YOUR OWN NIGHT WITH YOUR FRIENDS
A great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day is to get together with your other single lfriends (or, coupled up friends who may be free) and go out and have a fun night! Whether you go out to dinner or a club or just all get together at someone’s house, being with other people is a great way to make Valentine’s Day entertaining and fun.
3. CATCH UP ON YOUR FAVORITE SHOW
Order takeout and just stay home catching up on your favorite show or start a new one. Change into comfortable clothes and just relax!
Yep. We said it. Plug in your wand massager, new masturbation sleeve, anal plug, whatever you love and enjoy your body! Maybe take some time reading our articles about how to have specific types of orgasm or masturbation tips and try the tips and techniques to get to know your body even more!
5. LOOK UP LOCAL MEET-UP GROUPS
Depending on your area, there are so many types of meet up groups available to check out. The point isn't to just go out and meet new people with common interests, sometimes they may know people who know other people that you can bond with in the future!
6. GO TO THAT MOVIE
Sometimes, when you're "coupled up" it may require some compromise on what movie you have to see. If you are single on Valentine’s Day this is the best time to go and see a that you couldn't get someone to see with you. Get popcorn, candy and the drink that you want and just embrace doing something fun for yourself. Don't be afraid to go alone, sometimes just seeing a movie alone can be a great time!
7. GO TO A COMEDY SHOW
If you want to take the idea of girl’s night a little further, go for a girl’s night plus by going to a strip club or some sort of entertainment venue. Whether it be “The Thunder Down Under” or even just a raunchy comedian, going somewhere that you can all whoop and holler and really have some laughs is the best way to make the most of your V-Day.
8. BINGE WATCH NETFLIX
You know you want to watch ALL of the Grey’s Anatomies again – admit it, we won’t judge you! There are so many shows that we would love to watch again and again when we find ourselves single – or with some extra time on our hands. Why not make V-Day into a movie or television series watching marathon. Get in your jammies, buy some snacks that you love and sit your single butt on the couch and just chill.
9. SPA DAY
When is the last time you did something just for you? Got a manicure or pedicure or a facial? How about a full-body massage? Oh yeah, now you see where I am going. If you find yourself single on Valentine’s Day then treat yourself to the gift of a “you” day. Don’t skimp on anything, buy the deluxe package. Get the whole sha-bang and totally pamper yourself. No one deserves it more than you do!
10. CHANGE YOUR LOOK
Have you been feeling a little stuck in your style? Why not use Valentine’s Day as an excuse to change up your hairstyle? Maybe you want to change up the color, add some layers, or even do something dramatic! Valentine’s Day is a great day to change up your personal style and come out of that salon feeling super confident and sexy. Who needs a man to feel good about yourself? Not you!
11. GO SHOPPING, EVEN ONLINE!
Sometimes, retail therapy makes you feel good, right? While I am not suggesting you break the bank by buying everything in the store, but a day of window shopping or online shopping and allowing yourself to buy a little something-something all for yourself is a definite way to enjoy a single Valentine’s Day.
12. TRY A NEW EXPERIENCE
Have you wanted to take a cooking class? How about skydiving? Ceramics? IF there is some experience that you have always wanted to do, but for whatever reason you haven’t done, do it on Valentine’s Day. Make yourself fearless and do something completely selfish just for you. Embrace your inner dreamer and invest the time into starting a new hobby or learning how to do something new.
13. SEDUCE YOURSELF
I have spent numerous Valentine’s Days dedicated solely to myself with the coup degras being some quality naked time with myself. Long masturbation sessions where the only person you want or need to please being yourself is a priceless experience. Watch some porn, get out your favorite toy, buy a NEW toy – be good to yourself sexually and enjoy the moment of seducing yourself and bringing yourself to climax after climax!
14. ENJOY SOME IN-HOME PAMPERING
When is the last time that you took a long, hot bath? How about taking a bath with lit candles and a glass of wine? Oh yeah, now you are visualizing it. Get yourself into a complete state of relaxed Zen. Allow the wine to relax you and the warm, bath-salt infused waters to soothe your aching muscles. Then, after your bath move on to another activity like Netflix or a long masturbation session. Hell, if one thing on this list is a must-do – this one is definitely it.
15. PLAY ONLINE GAMES OR VIDEO GAMES
Any activity that keeps you busy is going to be beneficial to get you through Valentine's Day. Getting into a game online to play with others or even an RPG or "Roleplaying Game" has a story mode where you'd be shocked you get completely lost in!
