A Singles Guide to Surviving Valentines Day

Valentines, day of smooches and romantic rumblings; but it doesn’t have to be that way. If you find yourself single, there is probably no worse time of the year to feel more single than the 14th February. But Couples Schmupples… celebrate your singleton status, channel your inner Bridget, and revel in being single on Valentines day. Don’t settle for simply surviving Valentines day – here are 6 ways to really enjoy yourself.

Love Your Mates

There are so many other things you can do on Valentines Day than just be in a restaurant with someone else. Why not get a group of friends together to live it up? Enjoy your single status and celebrate with other singletons too. Loads of places do Anti-Valentines specials for groups so take them up on the offer.

Love a Flirt

Think you’re alone on Valentines? Think again! With so many like-minded singletons hitting the bars and clubs on Valentine’s night there is no better way to boost your ego than with a night out, all with a side of flirtatious banter. Time to find your inner sex goddess and let her loose for a while!

Love the Future

There are two ways to think about this:
1) If you’re down on love – why not have a bit of fun and go and see a fortune teller. Find out if that tall, dark and handsome someone is just around the corner. Even if you don’t believe it – it’s a giggle and something to remember. (see our post on The Future Of Valentine’s Day too)
2) Accept the fact that you can’t see into the future and stop trying so hard to figure it out. Who knows who you will ultimately end up with, time to stop looking for love and let it find you.

Love Online

Why not spend the night in with a friend, pour yourself a glass of something and log on to an online dating site? Have fun looking through faces like it’s a love catalogue and bravely contact a bunch of them. Dare to be adventurous and make the first move.

Love a First Date

Just because you are single on Valentines day doesn’t mean you have to be. Why not take the bull by the horns, be bold, and suggest an Anti-Valentines date to that person you’ve been swooning over? Score all of the PDAs (Public Displays of Affection) like you’re a judge on Strictly, have fun at the expense of the smoochy couples… who knows, you may even end up as one by the end of the night. (Check out our First Date tips post here.)

Love Yourself

Valentine’s day shouldn’t just be about one person sending gifts of appreciation to another. Time to appreciate yourself for once. Why not buy yourself some flowers, or that little something you’ve been thinking of getting for a while but haven’t been able to justify? There’s so much love around, send a little your way and celebrate being you!
