Valentines is 7 away, and of course in classic commercial sense, there’s all kinds of pink & red balloons around, love songs playing all the time on the radio, commercial for what to get the special one, and all kinds of things that keep reminding you that valentine’s day is here.

If you’re in a relationship, it’s a good reminder and definitely gives some ideas on what you can do for your special one, but if you’re single it’s an annoying reminder that you’re single and even if you don’t give 2 sh*ts about val’s day, it’s just in your face and you want it to end.

If you’re single and valentine’s day rolls around, you know you’re gonna get bombarded with couples all over the place. Folks receiving flowers, engagement stories, restaurants filled with lovers, etc. Well there’s stuff to do that will definitely get your mind off all that stuff.

You can still do your own thing, and have fun. You don’t have to sit and home and hate every couple, or pout, or drown yourself in ice cream and cheesy romance movies. Here’s a few ideas

1. Hit The Scene

Grab your single friends and hit the club scene. There’s always guaranteed to be something popping on vals day, and you can definitely grab a few single friend and hit up bars, pubs, clubs, karaoke bars and lounges. You definitely don’t need a significant other to have a blast a club.

2. Volunteer

Technically, Valentine’s day is about love. Not just romantic love, but love in general. There are plenty of folks that don’t have any kind of love, and there’s nothing that will make you feel better about yourself than doing some volunteer work that will put a smile on someone else’s face. Motherless babies home, Nursing home, Animal shelter, Food banks. These are just a few ideas.

3. Gym Time

While others might be piling up calories by eating chocolate and ice cream and the likes, you can do the opposite, and hit the gym. A good workout session will shed that stress you might be feeling off, and you’ll end up feeling very very refreshed.

4. Watch Movies (Scary Movies)

The farthest thing to think about when watching scary movies, is love. Well, technically, but it sure beats watching romantic comedies. Depending on your mood, you can watch movies by yourself or call up a few friends for movie night. Stack 3 movies together, and you’re sure to kill the night quickly.

5. Treat Yourself

Fine you don’t have a date on valentine’s day, but you still love yourself. Yep. You can spoil yourself a little bit on valentine’s day and feel great about it. A spa treatment, pedicure, shopping, buy something you’ve always wanted. Just something that will put a smile on that face.

6. Spend Time With Family

If you live in the same city as your family, it’ll be a good idea to spend some time with them. Some of my best memories of valentine’s day have been with family, and nothing like some good ole family time. If you’re too far away to visit family, then give them a call, or even skype with your parents or loved ones if you have the means. They are your first loves anyways :)

7. Throw A Party

Throwing a party just might be the ultimate way to have blast on val’s day. But you have to know for at least a week that you’re not doing anything “traditional” on valentine’s day. Hit up everyone, buy drinks, some appetizers, and get to partying. Heck you can spice it up and give it a theme. Fun things. You never know you just might get laid.

So there you have it. 7 things you can do on valentine’s day if you’re single. What you don’t want to do it hit up an ex, accept a rush date with someone you really don’t know or sulk and hate on your friends in relationships. You don’t want to come off as desperate, bitter or miserable. It’s just another day really without all the shenanigans.
