12 Most Happenin’ Ways for Singles to Spend Valentine’s Day
Couples get to show their love to the world on Valentine’s Day, but what about the millions of singles out there? Where is their holiday? A holiday that celebrates their independence and awesomeness?
Let’s replace Valentine’s Day with Singles Awareness Day. How should you celebrate? Here are the 12 Most Happenin’ Ways for Singles to Spend Valentine’s Day — Singles Awareness Day.
1. Dinner party
Do not go to a restaurant! That’s where all those sappy couples are hanging out. Invite your friends over for pizza night or a potluck.
2. Wear any other color but red or pink
While all those cute couples are donning red and pink outfits, stand out by wearing black or chartreuse.
3. Horror movies
Spend the evening with Freddy, Jason or Leather Face. Have you ever noticed how Jason goes after young couples making out?
4. Plan your next adventure
Married couples with kids don’t get to just go on a trip at the drop of a hat. They can’t go wherever they want. Single people can! Dream about your next vacation.
5. Get your video game on
Kinnect party — play Dance Revolution until you can’t dance any more.
6. Pamper yourself
Manicure or pedicure, anyone? Guys, this one is for you too. The ladies have been keeping the awesomeness of manis and pedis a secret for far too long. Go get one.
7. Got to a concert
Head out a see a heavy metal thrash band or a Tom Jones cover band.
8. Schedule a phone date

10. Re-establish the relationship with you
Hang out with yourself. Relax and do what you love. Meditate.
That knitting project won’t knit itself. Been meaning to start a blog? Do it today. Use the time to cultivate inspiration and create.
12. Do whatever the heck you want
You’re single, independent and fabtastic! Do what you want because at some point your plans are going to be made with someone else in mind.
Valentine’s Day is a commercialized holiday invented to make greeting card companies, florist and restaurants cash. And also make guys feel bad about forgetting the big day.
