10 Things to Do on Valentine's Day When You're Single

Valentine’s Day happens every year on February 14th. It’s usually a day that consists of a date with cards and candy. That’s all fine and dandy but what if you’re single? Here’s a list of 10 things to do on Valentine’s Day when you’re single.

1. Have a “Singles Only” Party.
You’d be surprised how many people you may know that don’t have a date. Get everyone together that isn’t planning on going on a date with someone and have a fun party. You can also invite people who may have partners who are away for work or another reason as well. For an example, include any military spouses so they aren’t alone on the day. It’s not meant to be a mean spirited party, it’s meant to be fun and get people together that may have otherwise felt left out on this day.

2. Watch Non-Romantic Movies.
Pick a couple movies out to watch that don’t have any romance in them. Whether you want to go all out with an action flick or maybe a pure comedy try to pick a couple movies to watch throughout the night that don’t have a plot that revolve around a romantic relationship.

3. Visit the Zoo or Animal Shelter.
Animals can give unconditional love. If you want to interact with a living creature but people aren’t your cup of tea today visit a zoo or animal shelter. Ask to be able to interact with the various animals and you might even make a connection with one. Don’t forget your camera!

4. Cook a Romantic Meal…for Yourself!
Who says you don’t deserve a nice meal today? Cook yourself a “romantic” meal such as some yummy pasta or a nice steak. You can even light up a few candles to put around your place setting when you eat.

5. Visit a Retirement Home or Assisted Living.
This is a great day to make someone else’s day. Visit a retirement home and visit elderly that might not have spouses anymore. Make this day special for them. It will make them feel good and make you feel good as well. You can read to them or just have a nice conversation with them. Bring a handmade Valentine’s Day card or some homemade baked goods to make them smile.

6. Volunteer.
There are a lot of people that need help today. Instead of sitting around and moping that you don’t have a date on Valentine’s Day think about all the things that you have then think about all the things less fortunate have. Help feed homeless at a shelter or volunteer to clean up a city park. This is a great time to help out the community.

7. Workout or Go on a Hike.
You can do this anytime when you’re single but doing it on Valentine’s Day can be even more rewarding. If you already work out go on a long and vigorous hike somewhere. This is great for getting away all the commercialization businesses will be displaying today and most likely it’s a chance to avoid couples on a date as well.

8. Get Dressed Up and Take Yourself Out.
Just because you don’t have a date doesn’t mean you can’t get all dressed up and go out. Doing this will show everyone you encounter while you’re out that you are very secure and don’t need anyone to have a good time. You can go get yourself a nice meal or even go to a movie. If you really want to feel pampered opt to take a taxi somewhere so you can have a couple of drinks while you’re out.

9. Offer to Babysit.
If you like kids this is perfect and helps out another couple. Offer to babysit for a couple that needs a babysitter so they can have a nice Valentine’s Day date. You might even have a really good time playing games, coloring, or even watching a children’s movie.

10. Curl up With a Nice Book.
If you just want to forget about the whole Valentine’s Day itself go to the bookstore or library a pick out a new book to read. If you spend the whole day and night reading the book you may just forget about the whole day and just enjoy what this book is offering you.
