The Single Girl’s Guide to Valentine’s Day


Oh, the joy of Valentine’s Day! Heart shaped candy, flowers, love in the air…and, of course, the constant reminder that you’re single.  Now on the 21st year of my solo V-Day Streak, I like to think of myself as somewhat of a Veteran. As an expert in the field, the one lesson I have learned from February 14th is that, yes, you may be painfully aware of your single status, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. College is a time for self-discovery. This is the only point in a girl’s life where she is allowed to be completely, utterly, unforgivingly, selfish and stupid. Make mistakes, take risks, and most importantly, don’t ever apologize for being who you want to be. So, put down the Ben and Jerry’s, turn off “The Notebook,” grab your best girlfriends and make this V-Day a celebration of being young, single, and absolutely fabulous! *Cue “Independent” by Webbie*

Here are some ideas on how to make your single and sassy V-Day your best one yet:

1.     Throw a Party: What better way to celebrate than a few cupcakes, a little vino, and Beyoncé on repeat? For a fun little twist, do a Valentine’s gift exchange with your friends.

2.     Movie Date: not in the mood to party? Luckily there are a variety of movies premiering on Valentine’s Day this year. If you’re in the mood for romance? Find a show time for “Endless Love.” Two words: Alex Pettyfer. Feeling extra lonely? Opt for the movie “Her” and be thankful you’re not in love with a talking computer. And if you’re just looking for some laughs, check out Kevin Hart’s new comedy, “About Last Night.”

3.     Appreciate Yourself: Make this day about you by treating your body to a relaxing day of self-indulgence. Take hot yoga class, or a long walk to your favorite nearby spot. Eat healthy, because your body deserves to be treated well. Find a local spa or splurge on a mani-pedi.  Just feel like sleeping in? Do it! This day should be about you.

4.     GNO: That’s right, I’m not afraid of a little vintage Miley.  If you’re not familiar with the song, I’m talking about a classic Girl’s Night Out. Go out to dinner, hit your local bar or dance spot, and make the most of your night!
