You just need to realize that being alone during this holiday is not at all the worst thing. Even if you are alone, there are plenty of things you could do by yourself or with friends. Keep scrolling for a few fun and a few relaxing things to do this Valentine’s Day if you are single.
Things To Do If You Are Single On Valentine’s Day
Things You Can Do Alone:
1.Movie Night: ‘Netflix and Chill’ this Valentine’s Day. Get all your favourite snacks, a pizza and a comfy blanket. You can pick your favourite movie or you could have a movie marathon and watch all your favourites or new ones you have been waiting to watch. If you do not wanna stay at home, you could also check out what’s in theatre and go watch one there.
2.Try Out a New Recipe: Turn on some fun music and cook a dish you have been waiting to try and make. Whether it’s something you have wanted to cook or bake (or even both), valentine’s day is the perfect day to try it out.
3.Sign Up for a Class: What is something you have always wanted to try out? Dancing? Singing? Acting? There are so many classes you can sign up for and try out. Pick something you have always wanted to do and just have fun!
4.Ice-Skating: If you are lucky enough to live in a country where it’s cold enough to have an ice rink outdoors, you should definitely try it out. Or you can always go to an indoor ice-skating rink. I’m pretty sure that almost every place has one.
5.Read a New Book: If there is a book you have been dying to read but have not found the time, Valentine’s Day is the day you should begin reading it. You will definitely have a lovely day.
6.Start a Puzzle: There are many fun puzzles that you could buy and do on your own. Just make sure you have good snacks and music to go along with it.
7.Volunteer: There are so many places that require volunteers. You can help out for a good cause, like at a nursing home, orphanage, an animal shelter or a hospital. Spread love and cheer on this day with those who have no one else. It will bring joy and peace to your heart.
8.Catch Up on Sleep: There is a good chance that you desperately need to catch up on lost sleep. With extra working hours and lots of assignments and projects, you probably have missed out on sleep. Since you will be alone today, you can fill up your stomach and then have a nice long nap.
Things To Do With Friends:
1.Throw a Party: Call your single friends over and have a party. You will need good food, good drinks and good music. You all can chat and catch up with each other.
2.Have a Slumber Party: Invite your friends over to spend the night at your place. You can all play games, eat, watch a movie and put on face masks.
3.Have a Night Out: Go out to a Local Restaurant or Local Pub, have a blast with your friends and dance the night away.
4.Spa Day: Have a Spa day with your close friends. Pamper yourselves with massages followed by a delicious meal.
5.Try Out Karaoke: Try out karaoke with your friends. I’m sure you all will have loads of fun. Screaming out the lyrics to your favourite songs with your friends is probably the most fun thing ever and I am positive that you will absolutely love it!
6.Go to a Carnival/ Arcade: If there is a Carnival in town, that is exactly where you should be. Spend the night there with your friends, playing games and going on super fun rides. You could also go to an arcade and playing games.
7.Go to an Escape Room: If you like trying out exciting and fun things, maybe go to an escape room? Though they are challenging and tricky, it will be an enjoyable experience.
8.Visit a Local Museum: See if there is an art gallery or a museum that you and your friends would all be interested in going to and go to it! If you are all art fans, then it will definitely be something you will enjoy.
Everyone deserves to have a fun Valentine’s Day – whether or not they have a partner. Put yourself first and do whatever makes you happy. I hope you have an amazing Valentine’s Day!
