The Single Girl’s Guide to Valentines Day

We’ve all experienced at least one Valentines Day without a partner (I would think!) Many single ladies take the entire 24 hours of February 14 to wallow in self pity and feel sorry for themselves that they don’t get to share the day with that special someone. But ladies, it doesn’t have to be like that! Take the day to celebrate your independence. Take the day to celebrate the fact that you can do absolutely anything you want without having to consider your partner. Feel like sitting in front of the TV with an ice-cream tub one night? Do it! Feel like doing that for an entire week? No-ones stopping you! Feel like watching the latest chick flick? Okay so you get my drift… The point is, being single is not a punishment, it’s a choice. It’s also the best time to get to know yourself and just how awesome you really are. So when February 14 comes along, put away the tissues and bookmark this page for some ideas regarding how to spend your day!

Use The Day to Create Awareness

February is Heart Disease Awareness Month (yes there is actually something more important than Valentines Day in February) so use the day as best you can to create awareness and support the cause. Invite a group of girlfriends over for a girly evening with a glass of wine or two, delicious dinner and a hilarious movie. Ask each girlfriend to not spend money on roses and chocolates, but rather on a donation to a Heart Research Foundation. Not only will you have a great night, but you’ll be contributing to an extremely important cause.

Gather Your Girlfriends And Paint The Town Red!

Just because you’re single it certainly doesn’t mean you’re alone! Nights out with close girlfriends can be the most fun, so gather all your single friends and hit the town! Go to a karaoke bar for some hilarious laughs and sing your lungs out with your closest confidants by your side – it really is one of the most fun things you can do! If you’re not into karaoke then opt for a club or quiet bar to enjoy a glass of wine or two. Whatever you choose, if you’re with you’re closest girlfriends, you’re sure to have an incredible time!

Have a Date With Yourself

So often we spend time pampering others and forgetting about ourselves – well on February 14th that’s all going to change! Clear your schedule and make a date with yourself. Have a relaxing bubble bath with lavender oils and surround the room with candles – bring your favourite book and simply relax! Later on, order your favourite take out and chill out in front of the TV. Seriously what could be better?!

As you can see, Valentines Day as a single lady doesn’t have to be so terrible! It’s a wonderful time to celebrate your independence. How do you plan on spending Valentines Day this year?

    I need to share this with my single friends. It’s important to embrace where we are in our lives no matter if we are single or married. What a great positive outlook you share!

  • Robin Rue

    Back when I was single, my girlfriends and I had spa days. It was an awesome way to forget about life for a while 🙂

  • Jennifer Van Huss

    This is a great post. Sometimes when you’ve been married for a long time you forget that Valentine’s Day is not for everyone! I love the spa day! Perfect way to pamper yourself!

  • Carla WorkingMommyJournal

    I spent so many alone and never minded! It still just feels like another day to us. Society tends to make it such a bigger deal then it is. Celebrate being fabulous!

  • When I’m single I usually go out with my friends and go clubbing 🙂 I love how you mentioned the donation to a Heart Research Foundation, great idea 🙂

  • I am not single, but will be spending the holiday alone. My hubby will be out of town.

  • heatherdw

    Oh. I’ve been there and done that. So many single Valentine’s day. Heck, even though I’ve been married for 15 years, we don’t really do much for the day. Hubster might bring me flowers, but we don’t go “all out”. I love these ideas!

  • I am not a big fan of Vday so I also don’t get the idea of celebrating it with your girlfriends if you are single..

  • Hmmm.. I remember way back in HS we always celebrate with our girl group..

    and it sure was fun back then..

  • Jennifer

    Great idea. i think I will have a spa day for V-day.

  • Joanna Sormunen

    I’m planning to have a date with myself on Valentine’s Day. My son will probably be with his dad so I can enjoy some me time. Maybe I’ll read a good book or maybe I’ll just blog 🙂

  • Katherine Bartlett

    I remember jumping in a convertible and riding around the city with my girlfriends

  • Kisa

    I wish I would have known these when I was married to my ex-h, he was terrible at every holiday. Christmas, my birthday, valentines day, didn’t matter. He never really did anything special. I should have just found a sitter and enjoyed a date with myself at a spa or something! 😉

  • Lisa Dunham Trudell

    I am married and Valentine’s Day also happens to be our Anniversary date. I certainly agree that regardless of the date we need to all take time to celebrate ourselves.

  • Valentine and alone, never heard this before. At least it never happened with me, I was always surrounded by my GF before marriage and my wife ever since (same girl off course)

  • Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell

    I love your idea of making it a fun girls’ day! There’s always laughs and silliness when girlfriends get together.
