If you’re planning on spending Valentine’s Day in your pjs and with a tub of ice-cream (even though that sounds like something I’d look forward to) then I have some ideas for you to also have a fantastic day on the day of ‘love people’!
This is mainly for people who recently got out of a relationship or never been in a relationship on Valentine’s Day! Round up your other single friends so that they can also have a good day with you!!
This year Love day is on a Sunday so there’s a lot of time to hang out with your friends or do something fun.
The SOLO plan
1. Stay in
Look, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with having a quiet day in! There’s a lot of people I know (including myself) who prefer isolation in any situation. The solution here is not to cry…because you’re by yourself. Make it an event! Get your knee-high socks and chunky sweater, catch up on some Netflix/ShowMax or start the book that you haven’t opened and get cracking!
2. Go shopping
Because everyone is out on their dates and the malls are slower on Sundays this is the perfect time to catch up on some shopping and take advantage of V-day sales that people are missing out on. Make it a shopping mission, in that way you’re not there to be around people who are in love!! ALERT: Avoid all FOODCOURTS!!
3. Administrative Leave
This is hilarious because it will help you keep V-day like any other day. Some people get really depressed/lonely on V-day but the key is to stay busy so that you don’t arrange a solo mission to planet depression/loneliness. Life is far too previous for that. You can catch up on your blog schedule, study, prepare for class 1 month in advance or use your planning skills to get you organized!
The CROWD plan
1. Girl’s Night Out
If you and your friends have no plans then make it a reason to wear RED sequin dresses!! Plan a night out and just dress up! In that way you all did not sit at home and cry about different reasons why this day is so awful! Next Day will be a Monday and it will be like it never happened!!
2. Invite your mom out for lunch.
My mom doesn’t have a husband anymore so this would definitely be a good day to make her feel loved and appreciated! We sometimes forget that our parents need that adoration and affection. So if one of your parents don’t have a date on V-day then I guess there’s a vacancy with your name on it!
3. A mixer
Living in a small town with specific type of people I realized that I always sing one song. There are no young people in my town. But I’ve since realized that people are too indoors and tend to stick to the same click so you never meet people unless you’re invited to a social/mixer! So either arrange one or find out if there’s one you can go to!!
If this doesn’t fix a lonely Valentine’s Day, I seriously don’t know what will!! LoL!!
I HOPE YOU GET SORTED!!
