A Single Person’s Guide to Valentine’s Day


Valentine’s Day comes around every February 14th. For couples, it’s one of the best days of the year, a night dedicated to romance. So as couples go out to dinner or cuddle up and watch movies, what’s left for the single people to do?


  1. Get with friends. Every single person has single friends. When you don’t have a significant other to spend the day with, spending the 14th with your friends is the next best thing.
  2. Exchange gifts with friends. Valentine’s day is a day to show your appreciation for someone, even your friends. So go out, buy your friend some chocolate or a teddy bear.
  3. Watch a movie. You can watch a comedy to get a good laugh in, or a cheesy romance movie to cry about being single. Either way, watching a movie is always a good way to spend your night.
  4. Eat an unhealthy amount of sugar. The day where you can eat as much chocolate, candy and junk food as you want without guilt. If you want to wait, go to Walmart on February 15th for discounted candy.
  5. Go to work. If you have a job, spending your night making money is always a good idea. It is a quick way to pass the time and help distract you from your love life… or lack thereof.


There’s plenty to do on February 14th; it’s just another day. So spend your day doing whatever you love. You don’t need a significant other to make it special.
