February 14th may be all about love and coupledom for many, but that doesn’t mean singles have to sit at home feeling sorry for themselves.
Here are 7 things you can do on Valentine’s Day if you’re flying solo in 2022. From fun date ideas to ways to spoil yourself, there’s something for everyone!
1) Take yourself on a romantic date – dinner, movie, and flowers all for you!
Just like any other date you want to make sure you look your best. You’re on your own schedule so take your time. Pour yourself a drink, take a hot shower (bring the drink), do your nails, give yourself a shave. Then put on that new or favorite outfit, dress or shirt you’ve been saving for a special occasion and go out to dinner at a favorite spot or one you’ve been dying to try.
Take yourself to see the latest movie release (and get there early so you can get popcorn and candy to enjoy during it!). If flowers are more your thing, buy a bouquet of fresh blooms and put them on your mantel or dining room table.
2) Spend time with family and friends – go out for dinner or have a potluck party!
If you’re looking to spend Valentine’s Day with people who love you, then why not try spending it on the ones closest to your heart: your family and friends.
You can grab a meal at your favorite restaurant or for those who prefer staying home, consider having everyone bring over their favorite dish so there is something for every palate during this special holiday mealtime togetherness celebration.
Grab some fun adult board games for after dinner and laugh the night away.
3) Netflix and Chill By Yourself
If you’re not feeling up for a group setting, why not Netflix and Chill by yourself?
Curl up on the couch with some of your favorite snacks and watch your favorite movies or TV shows. This is definitely a more low-key way to spend the day, but it can be just as enjoyable!
Netflix and Chill has taken on a whole new meaning in recent years… And we’re not complaining!
If you’re single this Valentine’s Day, there’s no shame in spending the day relaxing in front of the TV. Pop some popcorn, get cozy under a blanket, and enjoy your favorite films or shows – all without having to share the remote control (or bed)!
4) Make a list of things you’re grateful for, including your single status.
One great way to spend Valentine’s Day if you’re single is by focusing on the things you’re grateful for. Write down a list of all the good things in your life, including being unattached and free to do whatever you want!
This can be a really positive way to spend the day and will remind you that there are plenty of reasons to be happy – even when Cupid isn’t around.
5) Take a day trip somewhere close by – visit a new city, go hiking or skiing, etc.
If you don’t want to stay in your hometown on Valentine’s Day, why not take a day trip somewhere close by? There are plenty of fun things to do within driving distance, so get creative and come up with an itinerary that will make for an enjoyable (and romantic!) day.
Check out these ideas for nearby destinations:
-Take a scenic drive to the nearest mountain or lake.
-Visit a new city – there’s no shortage of charming small towns in America!
-Go hiking or skiing in a beautiful park or nature reserve.
-Head to the beach for some sun and sand.
-Tour a local winery or brewery.
6) Get a massage or mani/pedi
We all deserve some self-love on Valentine’s Day.
Give yourself the gift of relaxation by getting a massage, manicure, or pedicure.
You can even do this at home if you don’t want to make an appointment with a professional!
7) Plan a fun weekend getaway with your friends
Why not get away for the weekend and have some fun? There are plenty of great destinations that are perfect for a group trip – just pick somewhere that everyone can agree on! Whether you want to explore a new city or relax at a beach resort, there’s something for everyone.
Not ready to go away just yet? Then get together with some friends and plan a summer getaway. You can start by looking at ClubGetaway.com.
So there you have it – seven things single people can do on Valentine’s Day in 2022.
No matter what you choose to do, make sure to enjoy yourself and celebrate being single! After all, it’s definitely not a bad thing. 🙂
