Ways to enjoy Valentine’s Day even if celebrating solo

Being single on Valentine’s Day can actually be a real pleasure. The setup allows you to decide on your own plans and dedicate your time and money towards pampering yourself. 

Here are some single on Valentine’s Day ideas ….

Embrace the bath life

Bubbles, CBD bath bombs, you know, the works. You can also infuse the bath with essential oil blends. Add in a glass of wine, a book or a magazine, your favorite podcast, some candles, and even chocolate truffles, and voilà! You’ve transformed your bathroom into a bona fide Valentine’s Day oasis.

Have a spa day

While going out for a spa experience may not be a good idea given the pandemic, you can pamper yourself at home using some fantastic oils.  You can do manicures, pedicures, and face masks, for some additional ideas. Once you know which spa services are on your solo Valentine’s Day menu, you can set the ambiance with relaxing tunes by diffusing essential oils.

Consider doing some of your sessions over Zoom with friends who are also celebrating Valentine’s Day solo, so you can enjoy a sense of community, as well.

Show gratitude through words

Make yourself a Valentine full of heartfelt messages and love affirmations, including appreciations and gratitude. Decorate the card with hearts, flowers, or words of inspiration as a means to make yourself feel special and remind yourself of your worth.

Do a rom-com night

Thanks to various online platforms, it’s never been easier to watch movies together with friends, even if you are quarantining. In honor of Valentine’s Day, you can have a romantic-movie marathon with your closest pals using one of these services to help you feel connected from afar while in the comfort of your own home. Or, you could simply set up single-on-Valentine’s-Day bingefest for yourself.

Take a solo trip

If you’re able to go somewhere safely during this time, book a last-minute solo trip. A change of scene and adventure can be a great way to symbolize your independence and autonomy.

Mingle—in a COVID-safe way, that is

In non-COVID times, Valentine’s Day is also an opportunity for single people to mingle and celebrate their unattached status out on the town. Obviously, this Valentine’s Day won’t present the opportunity to safely visit a crowded bar to meet any number of new people, but you can take to the dating apps. At the very least, you might have some fun flirting or trying out cheesy pickup lines. (Source: wellandgood.com)
