It’s Valentine’s Day!! Proposals are happening everywhere, bouquets of pink and red roses are clouding your co-workers’ desk, and it seem’s like Cupid’s arrow has struck everyone but you. Just because you don’t have boo or bae, doesn’t mean you have to sit out on the fun today. You love yourself, right?!? Then use today to celebrate it! Here are three ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day as a single person.
Girls: Galentine’s Day Anyone?
There are SO many ways for single ladies to celebrate today:
1. Grab your girls, a bottle of wine and have a movie marathon.
2. Do an in-house cooking class with a last minute deal from Groupon.
3. Turn on YouTube and have a full blown karaoke session.
4.Dress up and celebrate life at a comedy show or a really nice restaurant in the heart of the city.
Nonetheless, a day with your girls is always guaranteed to be a good time; celebrating friendship with ladies who support you is just as important as celebrating romantic relationships.
Guys: Bar-Hop in The City
You may have missed the Wizard’s incredible win (120-98) over Oklahoma City Thunder (#dcrising) to kick off your Singles Awareness Day festivities but in the meantime, you can definitely enjoy the hype. Many bars throughout the city including Bar Rouge, Cotton & Reed, and Service Bar are all having great drink deals for anyone embracing the single life.
Anyone: Reconnect With Or Start a Hobby
Remember that sketch book you bought a few months back? That instrument you played in college and haven’t touched in the last few years? Well, let today be the day that you devote some time to an old hobby and rekindle your love for it. If life has kept you so busy that you don’t even have a hobby to reconnect with, use this day to start a new one. Self-love is the best love and it is important to have something that just alleviates the stressors of life.
Whatever the hell you want!
Listen, no one knows what the future may bring; cease the opportunity today to treat yourself however you see fit and enjoy the journey of singleness as there is truly nothing like it. (Plus you never know, you might be on cupid’s radar for next year.)
