With romance being everywhere on Valentine's Day, it is natural for us singles to feel a little left out. Romantic relationships sure can make some happy, but it's never a necessity.
The spirit of V-Day calls for us to celebrate 'love.' So, we ask you to take this opportunity and acknowledge the ones who are always there for you.
Make this day special by showing appreciation to those who are constantly lifting you up with their relentless love and support. It can be your family, friends and even you!
Instead of being hard on yourself, enjoy the day with loads of self-pampering fun activities.
Here's a few ways to stay happily single on the day of 'love'!
Take your family out for a nice dinner
The unconditional love of your family should never go unnoticed. So, how about you celebrate the day with the ones closest to your heart? Spend a wholesome evening with your family by taking them out for dinner. A fine feast and quality time together is sure to make you feel blessed.
Have a movie/game night with friends
Your friends are there to make you smile through life. And a sleepover with them can turn V-Day into a fun-day (get it?)!
Invite them over and enjoy a night of entertainment. Watch a good movie together or play your favourite games, anything is amusing with friends by your side!
Set a date with your bestie
Who said you can't take your best friend on a date? Spoil her just as you would spoil your man. Get your bestie out on a girly-date; have fun together with your usual gossip, yummy food and Instagramable selfies. Treat her with a nice gift. After all, life is so much better, so don't miss this chance to let her know!
Host a one-dish party
Get all your single gal-pals together by hosting a one-dish party. Ask each of them to cook an item while you take care of the hosting-duties. As they come over, enjoy dining together, tasting each other's dish and sharing the love. It's such a grown-up way to party and a beautiful way to appreciate each other!
Give yourself some attention
It is important to love yourself before you love anyone else. So, take this day to give yourself the love, attention, and affection you deserve.
Take yourself out. Buy yourself a thing you desire. Engage in self-care; lose yourself in your favourite book. Make the day all about you because at the end, you're all you truly need.
