Whilst being single on Valentine’s Day might feel somewhat 'flat', it doesn't have to be the worst thing to ever happen, girls. Besides, what better excuse to spoil yourself?
First and foremost, remind yourself that you are incredible, coupled up or not. If you haven’t got a S.O to pay you these compliments, we’re more than happy to take the reins and shower you with lots of Lounge love. Plus, it's worth remembering that Valentine's Day isn't exclusively for couples (although it may seem that way.)
In our opinion, being single on Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to give yourself some TLC you would otherwise be giving someone else. It's also the best time to show your Female Family some love, and most importantly, yourself.
We’ve got a whole list of fun things to do on Valentine’s Day when you’re single, from the fun to the fabulous. So, don’t let the Instagram couples or soppy Snapchat’s get you down. We’ve got you.
Galentine’s Day falls on February 13th, exactly a day before the big day. Channel your inner girly vibes with all the fizz and games and celebrate just how fabulous you and your besties are.
Because pizza makes every day better, right? If you feel like giving yourself an extra bit of love, why not cut your pizza into a heart shape? Plus, being alone on Valentine’s Day is so much better when you don’t need to share your meat feast with anybody.
The key to surviving Valentine’s Day single is by showering yourself with love. Send yourself a bunch of flowers to really put a smile on your face and make your day bloom.
Let’s get this straight: self-love is always a good idea. If you’re wondering how to enjoy being single on Valentine’s Day, self love is always the answer. Fancy splashing out on some Lounge? Do it. Want to eat junk food all day? Do it. Want to stay in and watch the whole series of Bridgerton in one sitting? You can do that too. Today, you are all that matters in the world. This applies all day, every day.
Your besties will never say no to a Zoom party, especially when it involves endless laughs, giggles and some yummy food. We could all do with a classic girl’s night in, so make a luxurious three course meal (get your besties to do the same) and indulge over a glass of bubbly.
Bookstores aren’t open at the moment, but Amazon is your next best bet if you want to up your reading game. Splash out on a good romance novel if you’re spending Valentine’s Day alone, wrap yourself up in a cosy blanket and get a hot chocolate on the go.

No partner, no drama.
That’s how we think of it, girls. Just think, being single is actually quite fun. You don’t have to share the bed, you don’t have to take responsibility for anybody else and you don’t have to share the TV. It’s quite the dream if we’re being honest.
Bring the spa to you and treat yourself with a face mask, pedi-cure, manicure - you name it! A good pamper day will remind you just how amazing you are, loved up or not. You can even treat yourself to some Lounge to end your night on a high.
If you really want to enjoy Valentine’s Day as a fellow singleton, what better way than by putting your feet up, throwing on some Lounge and having a movie night?
We’re talking non stop rom-coms, chick flicks, you name it. If you want to embrace all the single vibes, watch ‘How to Be Single’ starring Rebel Wilson on Netflix. Trust us, by the end of it you'll be feeling super empowered as a single lady.
Yes, we said it. Valentine’s Day is just another day, girls. Some people are more into celebrating Valentine’s Day than others, so remember that if you aren’t feeling it - that’s absolutely fine! Try and do something that makes you happy for the day and forget alll about Valentine’s Day for another year.
If you’re wondering what to do on Valentine’s Day when you’re single, focusing on you would be a good start. Practice self acceptance and self-love girls. You can even make a list of all the things you hope to achieve this year and any other goals or ambitions you have. Don’t let one day disrupt your inner glow.
Cocktails are amazing, especially when you can make them yourself. Try out some online cocktail recipes, get your shaker in action and mix away. Mocktails are just as fun too, so even if you’re alone on Valentine’s Day, you can wind down with a glass of fruity goodness.
Cheers to that!
Still feeling a little bit down? Treat yourself this Valentine’s Day to something luxurious and totally Instagrammable. Besides, you deserve to look your very best, if not for anyone else then for YOU!
