No-I-am-not-singleWhether you think Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year or a silly holiday created by greeting card companies, it’s here and everyone expects you to have someone special to spend the day with. What if you don’t? What then? Should you crawl under the covers, light some candles, listen to love songs, and cry all day? No way! You’re young, beautiful, and single. Let’s celebrate Valentine’s Day for singles this year!

single-awarenessWhat’s so great about being single on V Day? Let’s turn that question around. What’s NOT great about being single on V Day? Here are some reasons you should love having a Valentine’s Day for singles:


  • You don’t have to worry about buying the “perfect” gift for your boyfriend
  • No need to stress about the money you’ll spend on an expensive restaurant
  • Instead of focusing on being alone, you can spend this V Day focusing on all the reasons you love yourself!


Are your friends single, too? Awesome! Plan to spend the day/night together. You can go out dancing, get dinner, go shopping, or see a movie.

Single-On-Valentines-Day-1Short on cash, but big on love for your BFFs? Plan to meet at a friend’s house and eat yourselves silly. Or you could cook dinner together. Kenchic is still a good plan, if you’re a group! See, it’s not looking like a bad now, is it?

It’s OK if all of your friends have plans for V Day. Don’t think you’re a loser or that no one loves you if you don’t. People place a lot of importance on Valentine’s Day, but it’s just another day! Just because you don’t have a date on February 14, doesn’t mean anyone loves you any less today than they did on the 13th.

Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to pamper yourself. Get a manicure, indulge in your favorite foods, dance like a maniac around your bedroom to your fave music, or do anything that makes you happy.

You-Are-Single-On-Valentines-DayHere are some things NOT to do, unless you want your V Day to be ruined:

  •  Listen to slow R&B music and think about the boyfriend you don’t have
  • Watch a love story; stick to comedies or action movies
  • Lay in bed all day
  • Mope around feeling sorry for yourself
  • Call an ex-boyfriend
