For those in love, Valentine's Day is a time to reflect on your relationship and remember all the reasons why you love each other.
However, if you find yourself alone come February 14, you probably view the holiday a bit differently. But just because you don't have someone special to share it with, doesn't mean that the day itself can't be special.
Here are Axar.az presents you 10 awesome things to do when you're single on Valentine's Day:
1. Have a movie marathon featuring your celebrity crush.
Are you really into Leonardo DiCaprio? Or Eva Mendes? Collect all of your favorite actor's movies and spend Valentine's Day with your true (on-screen) love.
2. Babysit for a couple that never gets a night out.
Know someone who would love to take a night off from parent duties to spend some quality time with their partner? Offer to watch their kids for the night since you don't have any plans. They'll probably even pay you.
3. Treat yourself by signing up for a single's subscription box.
Thanks to Birchbox, subscription boxes of all sorts have been coming out of the wood works. Recently singles everywhere have been raving about boxes like Singles Swag that deliver books, beauty products, and snacks to your doorstep.
4. Go on a shopping spree and take advantage of the holiday sales.
Take the money you would have spent on dinner and chocolates and put it towards a new wardrobe. Plus, tons of stores usually have sales that you can save on!
5. Do a Secret Santa-like Valentine exchange with your other single friends.
Put everyone's name into a hat and have flowers delivered, chocolates bought, or a dinner planned for your pick.
6. Take the day to unplug.
If you tend to get annoyed by all the happy couples on Valentine's Day, then take the day off from social media.
You'll finally know what it feels like to be unplugged and it could help you put your phone down more if you're one of those people who feels addicted to it.
7. Throw an anti-Valentine's day party.
Maybe you're single by choice or maybe you're just happily waiting for the right person, but that doesn't make Valentine's Day any less awkward and awful.
Be honest with how you feel about it and surround yourself with people who think it's just as cheesy and annoying as you do. Ban anything pink, red, or covered in hearts and bash February 14 as much as you want.
8. Take a class.
If there's a class you've been dying to try, see if there are any spots available on Valentine's Day. Lots of people will have plans for the night so it'll be the perfect time to take that spin class you've never been able to get a spot in.
9. Buy your favorite things and relish the fact that you don't have to share them.
Buy your favorite wine, candy, or meal, and keep it all to yourself. You won't have to give up a single one of your fries, or a drop of your wine. Enjoy the fact that it's all for you.
10. Change up your look.
Maybe you've been wanting to chop all your hair off, or try a brand-new color. Get ready for a night out by switching up your hairstyle.
