A few ideas on how to spend Valentine's Day while single.
1 Make a reservation at a fancy restaurant for you and your friends.
Who needs dates when you've got your friend group? Get dressed up and enjoy an amazing meal together.
2 Pamper yourself.
Go to the spa or transform your bathroom into your very own sanctuary, complete with candles, bubbles, and Champagne.
3 Check out the newest bar in town.
Rally your crew for happy hour at a spot that's been on your list. Good cocktails and conversations are all you really need.
4 Foster a pet.
Visit your local animal shelter and show some love to a furry friend. Spend the day with him or her or extend your time together until they find a permanent home.
5 Get a mani/pedi.
You'll walk out of that salon looking and feeling great.
6 Spend time with your best friend.
Just because they're not your romantic partner, doesn't mean they're any less important. Take this opportunity to catch up and do things you both love.
7 Finally watch that movie you've been excited to see.
Haven't been able to cross a flick off your list because no one's been able to go with you? Go on a movie date by yourself instead!
8 Sweat it out.
Book your favorite workout class or try something completely new.
9 Hit up a karaoke bar.
Brave the stage with your friends or coworkers and belt out your favorite anthems.
10 Host movie night at your place.
Turn your living room into a cozy viewing area for you and your friends — pajamas and popcorn are obviously required.
11 Get out of your comfort zone.
Try something completely different whether it's a cooking class or dance class. If you have to spend the evening alone, you might as well take away a new skill!
12 Get sexy . . . for yourself.
Put on that lingerie set or outfit that makes you feel most confident, and admire yourself. However you define "sexy" is up to you.
13 Cook a meal for your friends.
Invite your favorite company over for a home-cooked dinner, and tell your guests that a bottle of wine is required for admission.
14 Visit a close friend.
If you're in a long-distance friendship, use Valentine's Day as an opportunity to finally go see them. Reuniting with him or her will feel amazing.
15 Treat yourself to a shopping spree.
Sometimes, a little trip to the mall is all you need.
16 Be someone's date for the evening.
Find a senior living center near you and spend time with someone who'd appreciate the company.
17 Add new reads to your personal library.
Visit your favorite bookstore and spend the rest of your day reading your newest additions at home.
18 Check out a concert.
Gather your friends to see an artist you all love — or if you're feeling brave, attend the show alone.
19 Throw a party.
Whether it's fully festive or anti-Valentine's Day, there's nothing better than being surrounded by your favorite people.
20 Start a new show.
Finally carve some time to lock into your couch and tackle a series you've been dying to start. Snacks are a must.
21 Spend quality time with your parent, sibling, or loved one.
Make it a family affair! Valentine's Day is all about showing love to the ones you care about most.
22 Celebrate YOU!
Send yourself the most gorgeous bouquet, handpick your favorite desserts, or all of the above. Turn this holiday into a self-celebration — you deserve all the love!
