Table for One: Valentine’s Day Plans for Singles

Manasvi Reddy, Copy Editor

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and many look forward to boxes of chocolate, red roses and massages. While it may seem like a day just to celebrate love and significant others, in reality, there are millions of single people across the country. V-Day can be the perfect excuse to treat yourself, celebrate any kind of relationship and have fun! Here are 14 things you can do by yourself or with your friends to have the best Feb. 14:

  • Treat your friends

What screams “I love you” more than fuzzy socks, homemade cake pops and heartfelt notes? Remember your friends this Cupid’s Day!

  • Be festive

Remember that V-Day is a holiday, so act like it! Wear all the pink and red love-themed things, and make a day out of it.

  • Share the love

It’s the perfect day to send texts to the people you love most in this world.

  • Host a party

Get a group of friends together for a game night or some light bites and have SO much fun!

  • Bake

There are tons of Valentine’s-themed treats you can replicate in your kitchen with some company or alone. Don’t forget to share your sweet treats afterward.

  • Go to a show

Valentine’s Day is on a Friday night this year, so find some local entertainment, whether it’s a concert or comedy show, and grab some tickets.

  • Movie marathon

Turn on Netflix and binge hours and hours of your favorite TV shows and movies. Suggestions? Stranger Things, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and Somebody Great.

  • Pamper yourself

Either head to a spa or avoid breaking the bank by making a homemade face mask and lip scrub. 

  • Babysit

Plenty of couples need babysitters for their dinner plans this evening, so why not make a few extra bucks?

  •  DIY night

Do some crafts with friends! Make a dream board, try out calligraphy or follow some Pinterest tutorials.

  •  Group dinners

Table for 8, anybody? Try a cult classic or a brand new restaurant with your people. Make sure and make a reservation – it’ll be crowded!

  •  Try something new

Grab some company and give a yoga, cooking or art class a shot on Friday.

  •  Go outside

Head to a nearby park or make the drive to the mountains. Adventure awaits! Hike, bike and take a dip in a pool or lake. Don’t forget the sunscreen!

  •  Take a mini vacation

You’ve got the whole weekend, plus there’s no school Monday or Tuesday, so make the most of it! Take a little road trip with some friends for a true getaway.
