The idea of Valentine’s Day and relationships have become a bit too intertwined. It’s almost as if people believe that you can’t have one without the other. But long gone are the days of ignoring Valentine’s Day when you don’t have a partner. All the single ladies need to put their hands up—and indulge in pastimes that make them happy.
Always remember that your worth isn’t defined by a relationship, and you are whole with or without a partner.
Our team worked together to come up with a few activities that single folks can get into for V-Day. Peep our list below.
Watch Your Favorite Throwback Movie
Whenever I’m trying to get extra cozy with myself, I love to pick out a throwback movie, grab some snacks, curl up on the sofa and hit play. Sometimes, I’ll also invite over some friends to make it a bit more fun. Some of my personal favorite movies include Love Jones and Love & Basketball.
Have A Spa Night
When was the last time you spent quality time with yourself? If you can’t remember, that means it’s time for a hangout. That means absolutely no distractions, no checking work emails, and absolutely no frowns. Do your nails, put on a face mask, set intentions and make great memories.
Take Yourself (Online) Shopping
If you’re like me, you never need a reason to go shopping. But stores and brands, like Bath & Body Works, Macy’s and Miss Jessie’s have Valentine’s Day sales in place, along with websites that you can get your beauty and fashion needs filled from.
Cook Yourself A Fancy Dinner
Sometimes delivered meals and restaurants don’t taste the same as a home-cooked meal. If you don’t cook often and you’re far from family, this is the perfect opportunity to try out your auntie’s macaroni and cheese recipe.
