It’s just two days to valentine! Two days to the celebration of love! Two days to the renewal of promises between lovers.
On the flip side, it means two days to 24 hours of tension and oppression for singles. Two days to premium social media pressure and two days to being made to feel like being without a romantic partner is a crime.
Soon all you’d see when you scroll your social media pages are cheesy pictures, proposals, videos, and gifts. All you’d be forced to listen to when you tune in to your favorite radio stations are love songs you aren’t interested in. Then you’d realize that every place and everything around you has a love theme.

However, while you cannot always control these things, you can also join in the celebration and have a pleasant one at that WHILE BEING SINGLE!
Here are seven ways to have a blast while being single on Valentine’s day:
1. Just an excuse to shop
Yes, put it out there that Valentine’s Day can’t really be your excuse to go on a shopping spree. Pretend to be a capitalism-hating ultra-leftist and say things like “The idea of Valentine’s Day for selling products is sheer stupidity and corporate conspiracy.” Use your V-day angst to put all the unnecessary gift ideas to shame.
Single people on Valentine’s Day should just use this opportunity to point out everything that is wrong with consumerism. You can wear non-branded, old, worn-out clothes for a few days to make them sound authentic.

2. Use your nerdy outlook
Are you lonely on Valentine’s Day and sick of all the mushy couples around you? Pretend to be a nerd and say, “You know you are celebrating a murder, the murder of St. Valentine?” The fact remains not many people know why they are celebrating this day as special.
Show them your nerdy side and get into the history and geography of Valentine’s Day so that they forget to ask you if you have a Valentine at all. That’s what you call putting your nerd self to good use.
3. Celebrate Galentine’s Day to cope with being lonely on Valentine’s day
One of the best single Valentine’s Day ideas, go out with the girl gang! Yes, many women are doing this now and with aplomb. Galentines Day is when you celebrate the best women in your life with an exotic dinner and some great wine.
Your Galentine could be your BFF, your mom, sister, or even your niece. Celebrate this great bond and bask in the glory of the love you share.
Now, who cares if you are single. You do know how to celebrate love. Don’t you?
4. Have a party with single friends
Wondering what to do on Valentine’s Day when you are single? This is the best thing you could do, trust us. Call all your single friends over and have a blast. It will be just unadulterated fun without any pressure. Yes, without the pressure of getting the perfect gift, or arranging a candlelit dinner. You can just have a ball together and even split the costs.
Love is shared by spending time with your friends too. Spilling drinks, dancing away, eating like there is no tomorrow – truly the best memories are made with your friends. Single people on Valentine’s Day should just get together and throw themselves a rad party!
5. Go on a date with yourself
Being single on Valentine’s day really does not have to be all that depressing when you have yourself. A date with yourself would be a grand idea. Some “me” time in a luxurious spa or in a restaurant would really make you happy. Do all the things you have been planning to do but never got the time for.
Visit that bookstore and buy those 10 books on your wish list. Or maybe that LBD you have been eyeing for a long time. Go on a shopping spree, splurge on yourself and be happy. Finding happiness in being by yourself is the best kind of strength. One of the best singles of Valentine’s Day ideas – treat yourself!
