Valentine’s Day, for some, is fondly referred to as Single’s Awareness Day. So what do all singles people do on Valentine’s Day? Well, they can wallow in self-pity or bitterness, or they can do something that shows how much they care about themselves. What is even better is that it can be inexpensive too.
1. Polish Party.
Get a few of your single girlfriends together, bring all the nail polish you have, and take turns giving each other mani’s and pedi’s while bad mouthing all the boys who have done you wrong and what celebrity got arrested the night before. You will not only get some polish powered confidence, but some much needed girl time therapy. What will this cost you? Nothing, unless you need to pick up some new polish!
2. Bubble Bath… That’s Right.
Stop by your local bath and body shop and pick up some bubble bath in your favorite scent. Nothing says relaxation more than a bubble bath. Now light some candles, grab a book, or just turn on some soothing music and take some time for yourself. The max this one will cost you? $15. Try it out, you will not regret it.
3. Need a Good Cry?
Pop in Dirty Dancing or Marley and Me and enjoy some of what I so fondly refer to as movie medication. Get your favorite drink and snack ready. Put on those pajama pants that fit just right and those fuzzy socks that you love so much and over medicate yourself to your single heart’s content. Using Red Box? This one will cost you a max of $5 for the movie and $20 for your drink and snacks. Indulge a bit.
4. Go Home!
If you are a college student like me and going home is a rare luxury, plan ahead and make the trek back home. Be around people who truly love you, aka, your parents! If your parents are like mine, they will smother you in hugs, candy, and free food (something every college student loves.)
Valentine’s Day does not have to be Single’s Awareness Day. Make Valentine’s Day about you, and tell Single’s Awareness Day where to shove it.
