Fun Things To Do Alone On Valentine's Day

Fun Things To Do Alone On Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day can be a stressful time for couples. But don’t forget about all of the single people out there! Here are some fun things to do alone on Valentine’s Day:

Go to a spa

If you’re looking for a way to relax and treat yourself, a spa is a perfect place to do it. There are many different spas worldwide, so finding one that suits your needs shouldn't be too difficult. In most cases, spas are an excellent way to meet new people while getting pampered simultaneously.

Many spas offer special discounts around Valentine's Day—make sure that you check out their website before booking anything!

Write a letter to yourself.

  • Write about what you want to change and how you will do it

  • Write about how you are feeling

  • Write about how you can feel better about yourself

  • Write about what your goals are and how you will achieve them

Make a vision board

  • Find a quiet place to work.

  • Find a place to hang up your vision board.

  • Collect images that represent what you want in life. These can be pictures of things, people, places, or experiences that make you happy and fulfilled. For example, I have an image of myself at the beach because I love the ocean and being out in nature; I also have pictures from my past travels so I can remember how much fun it was exploring new places and meeting interesting people from around the world. Finally, there are a few photos of food (I like good food) because sometimes eating is all about enjoying yourself!

  • Glue sticks or tape these on the wall where you decided to display them—and then step back and take in all this awesomeness!

Curate your social media feeds

If you're a social media user, this is a great time to look at your Instagram, Twitter and Facebook feed.

What do they say about your life? Is it all cute pictures of babies and puppies? Or are you seeing people get into fights on the subway and political rants from friends who've been posting way too much lately? If the latter is true, consider unfollowing or unfriending some of those "friends."

Also, think about adding more positive people to those platforms. Doing so will help balance out any negativity that might be there.

Organize your digital photos

  • Import all your photos from your phone to your computer.

  • Organize them by date, location, or person.

  • Create a digital photo frame with pictures of yourself and those you love to look at daily.

  • Print out some of the best shots for a scrapbook or use them to create a digital scrapbook of photos from this year's events (like parties and trips out).

  • Turn some of those great shots into prints or books that can be used as gifts for friends and family members!

Host a mini-book club meeting

Hosting a book club is one of the fun things to do alone on Valentine's Day. It’s also an excellent opportunity to throw your friends and family off their game by subtly revealing that you're not spending this night alone.

A book club meeting is easy to organize and can be as simple or elaborate as you want it to be, depending on how many people are involved and what kind of books they like reading. If you're going it alone, choose two or three types of books that interest you—a novel, nonfiction book, poetry anthology—and then ask everyone who comes over tonight (or in future meetings) which one they want to discuss next time. You could even carry a list of suggestions on index cards so people can vote anonymously while enjoying snacks and drinks!

The key thing about hosting a successful mini-book club meeting is making sure there's always enough food/drinks/entertainment available for everyone. Hence, no one feels left out during discussions about themes in The Hunger Games Trilogy versus themes present within Beowulf vs. having enough paper towels for clean up after appetizers have been consumed before getting started on main course time...

Indulge in your favorite foods (and wine)

This is a perfect time to indulge in your favorite foods and wine. If you’re not much of a cook (like me), order takeout. If you have the skills, make some homemade mac and cheese or grilled salmon with lemon-infused couscous. Whatever your meal may be, include your favorite wine or beer.

  • This is also a great time to eat all those non-Valentine-approved foods that don’t get as much love during the rest of the year, like chocolate-covered pretzels or cheese puffs from the movie theater—be sure to keep track of how many calories they add up to!

There's always next year.

If you're disappointed by your lack of a Valentine this year, don't worry. There's always next year. You may not have a date on February 14th, but there will always be another chance to celebrate.

Don't be sad about it—instead, think of it as an opportunity for something different. Don't give up! Try again! Don't be afraid to make mistakes or try new things; life is long enough that your options aren't limited to this one day.


Remember, it doesn’t matter if your partner is in town. You can still have a great time and make memories that will last you for years. So don’t give up!
