It’s that time of year again. Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. I don’t know about you, but as much as V-Day is known as a romantic holiday, I think it’s time to make Valentine’s Day more inclusive. These are some ideas of how to turn it up on Valentine’s Day when you are single.
Just because you’re single doesn’t mean you have to feel left out of the festivities. And if you’re single there are some unique ways you can celebrate and make the most out of Valentine’s Day.
Here are 3 ways to do so:
1. Take stock of your friends.
Valentine’s Day is a holiday which is supposed to be about love. Love isn’t only about the romantic kind, but non-romantic loves too.
Don’t forget those precious friendships! Have a V-Day potluck or meet up with your bestie or closest friends. Go to one of your favorite hanging spots and make V-Day about celebrating friends who make a difference in your life.
2. A spa day is always a good day.
Use Valentine’s Day as a day to pamper yourself. Go and do something that feels good for you. If you aren’t into spas, do some yoga, pilates, or paddleboarding. The point is to take some time for self-care because that is symbolic of love too.
3. Wear something that makes you feel good.

Go ahead and turn it up a notch. It is Valentine’s Day after all. Put on something that always turns heads, and which you tend to receive compliments. Wear red or a color you don’t usually wear to turn it up a notch, but makes you feel your sexiest. If you have to be with someone else to dress up, well you’re missing the point. Empower yourself!
