Valentine’s Day is on its way again. Are you wondering how to spend valentine’s day alone?
This holiday can seem like a blatant reminder of being single, or the absence of someone you love. It can be a reminder that you are alone. It may have you start thinking “Why am I always single on Valentine’s Day?'‘
But don’t despair! I like to think of Valentine’s Day as a day of self-love. A reminder that you are amazing with or without a partner.
You don’t need someone to make you any better. You are great as you are. So, here are some ideas to celebrate your epic-ness. Pamper yourself and indulge in what makes you, you! Here are 10 ways to to spend your Valentine’s day when you are single.
You Don’t Have to Buy Into Valentine’s Day
Dealing with Valentine’s Day when you are single can feel depressing. Valentine’s Day isn’t for everyone. It is completely okay to do nothing to acknowledge the day. You can treat it like any other Thursday. If you are the person that celebrates themselves every day, you don’t need a day to specifically do it. You do you boo. Carry on.
Order In Or Make a Delicious Meal For One
A big part of the Valentine’s culture is to go out and have a meal with your partner. It can be packed, and kinda crazy to go out on Valentine’s Day. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy an amazing candle lit dinner. Order in from your favorite restaurant or cook in.
Try something new or order from McDonalds. There is no judgement only enjoyment of delicious food that makes you feel good. Add some candles and some music and you will have the restaurant experience except in your pajamas!
Do A Date Night With A Friend For Valentine’s Day
A fun date night out with a bestie can be just as fun as a date night out with a significant other. Actually, it can be a whole lot more fun, with laughs, care free vibes, and no pressure. We have loved ones in our life and it can be great to celebrate those relationships on Valentine’s Day.
Go out with a friend and celebrate your relationship, new or old. Drink, laugh, eat, and be happy that you have this person in your life.
Skype With People You Love
Valentine’s Day can make anyone feel lonely. It can be a very forceful reminder that you lack someone beside you, like it is a bad thing, which it is not! Being solo in the world is an amazing experience. But, if you do start to feel a bit lonely, reach out to those you love.
Skype with a couple of friends or family members throughout the night. You have people! Don’t let the culture of Valentine’s Day make you think otherwise. There are multiple types of relationships that are important and should be celebrated.
Pamper Yourself This Valentine’s Day
You are worth some pampering! This may mean going out to a salon, getting your nails and hair done. This may be taking the time to do your nails at home and have a face mask session. Whatever pampering looks like to you, do it. Give yourself some extra self-love.
Remind Yourself Of Your Value This Valentine’s Day
To often there is a message that if you are single this Valentine’s Day there is something wrong with you. This is not true. Some people are single on purpose. Some are still looking for someone to see their value and they aren’t going to settle.
So, this Valentine’s Day remind yourself you are valuable. This means with or without a job, with or without your diplomas, with or without your clothes, apartment, or healthy body, you have value. Those things do not give you value. You alone are valuable, celebrate that.
Movie, Chocolates, and Wine
Yeah, you could go simple and sappy. Watch a rom com or one of your favorite movies and indulge. Chocolate. Wine. Whatever you want that makes you feel spoiled and indulgent. Enjoy it.
Read a Good Book with some Wine
If books are more your thing then go at it. I won’t judge you if want to indulge in a romance novel. Read; enjoy some wine and relax.

Take a break from social media, the news, and the internet. Give your mind a break from seeing everything Valentine’s Day and what everyone else is doing.
There is no need to document or share your evening plans. Indulge in whatever you want. No one needs to know.
