You’re single, but that does NOT mean you are lonely. Thankfully, 2019 is the year where everyone has fully embraced single-hood and those in relationships may or may not be jealous. That being said, February 14th is creeping around the corner, so here are some fun ways to enjoy the single-life while your couple friends are spending $200 on a pre-fix dinner in midtown.
Go to a workout class and get SWEATY because there is nothing less sexy than the face you make while doing burpees on a sweaty gym mat.
Carb-load with your fellow single friends, preferably at a place that offers all-you-can-drink wine for a low low price. People always think going out to dinner with friends on Valentine’s Day sucks because your surrounded by couples. The truth of the matter is, single people gotta eat too! And you never know what group of hot guy friends you might run into who also enjoy cheese bread and merlot.
Movie night at your apartment with all the buttery popcorn and sugary snacks money can buy. My one tip for this is be strategic about planning your movie night. Buy the snacks and pick the movies ahead of time, otherwise you’ll be stuck scrolling through Netflix with your friends yelling “there’s nothing good on here!”
Go bowling, stay with me on this one… If you think about it, most couples aren’t going bowling on Valentine’s Day. That means you have a romance-free zone with all the lanes and bowling ball options you could ever want.
Get shit done, it might sound depressing but being single on Valentine’s Day is a great time to be productive without distraction. Have you been meaning to clean out your junk drawer? Apply for that job you saw on LinkedIn? Pay your rent? Get it done!
