As a singleton, I’m mostly not that bothered by my lack of other half-but at this time of year I start to be slightly more sad about it. Spending Valentines Day alone is great for making you feel like the only single person in the world, when everyone’s social media is full of ‘the boy did good’ statuses-ugh. Maybe, just sometimes, I’d quite like a bit of romance in my life, for someone who loves me to show they do by buying me my favourite chocolates, some roses and a soppy card. I know, I KNOW-Valentines day is commercialised bullshit, and I do agree-but it doesn’t stop the lonely feeling, so I decided that this year I was going to embrace spending Valentines Day alone.
See your friends
I didn’t see friends on the day itself, because most of them are loved up and so spent the day with their partners. I did, though, have a fantastic dinner at Lost and Found Leeds the night before, for Galentines Day-so that made me happier leading into Valentines Day.
I made some serious pamper plans and spent my night refreshing my hair dye, putting on a face mask, and using a hand and foot mask. Then after a shower I painted my nails, plucked my eyebrows and lit a fancy candle whilst I read a book.
Buy yourself presents
As well as the new book, I bought myself my chocolates, a big bag of my favourite crisps and some new clothes I’d been lusting after for a while. There’s no better feeling than treating yourself and with no boyfriend to buy gifts for, my money is just for me.
Watch something great on Netflix
I binge watched Everything Sucks, which is a new to netflix original show set in the 90s-and oh my god it’s good. I watched the whole show in two days, most of it on Valentines night. Happy Valentines Day, me.
Get an early night
After binge watching Netflix and my pampering I felt pretty relaxed, so I read some of my book with my Neom sleep candle lit then I had am early (for me-11pm) night. And I slept so well, without anyone snoring away next to me. Win, win.
Look for someone new
If you actually don’t want to be single anymore, why not take advantage of the fact that other people are definitely in the same boat, and get onto some dating sites to chat to someone new? There’s so many out there, like dating in Peterborough, Dorset singles, date Jersey singles, Essex singles and Essex dating sites.
