Flying solo this Valentine? Being alone on Valentine’s Day is not a bad thing. Whether you are single to stupor or your bae is out of town, you can still enjoy the day alone without being in other couples’ businesses. I personally think it’s a good thing to spend time with yourself . So this Val’s day, love yourself, spoil yourself and get to be your own valentine!
There are tons of things you can do that will not make you look like a crazy, desperate, single person. You don’t have to go for a date all by yourself or spend the whole day at home or drown yourself in work just because you don’t have someone to spend Valentine with. Spoil yourself a little, you deserve it. Here are a few incredible ways to spend a solo valentine.
1. Enjoy a movie marathon
Valentine’s is the perfect night to catch up on all your favorite movies and TV shows. It’s just you so there’s no one to fight for the TV remote with. You can watch whatever you want to watch without any form of disturbance. And don’t forget snacks and drinks! The only time you need to get up is when you need a bathroom break.
2. Cook yourself a special Valentine’s dinner
Cooking is a fun thing to do on Valentine’s day. You can have whatever you want without anybody complaining about how it tastes. Find a recipe you’ve never tried before, pop a bottle of wine and spend time in the kitchen. The good part is if you mess it up, you can just order some food for yourself.
3. Go out with friends or family
Just because you’re going solo doesn’t meant you can’t have time with friends and family. If your family isn’t close by, you can have a date with your squad and even play secret Valentine. That way you get to exchange gifts.
4. Run a bubble bath
Spoil yourself a little. Run a bubble bath and calm yourself, get a book to read and and a glass of wine and spend as much time as you want in the bathtub.
5. Buy yourself something expensive
Since there’s no one to get you an expensive Valentine gift, why not buy one for yourself. Splurge on a nice bottle of perfume or a fancy pair of shoes. Go online or to a store and pick something that makes you happy. Be your own lover, that’s the only way to love someone else anyway.
