So we all know that Valentine’s Day is today, which benefits mostly couples and we singles don’t know what to do that day. All the other couples are probably having a nice date, but single people have nothing to do except cry about how we have no one. It’s hard to be single during this time of year, but leave it to the expert to show you what to do during Valentine’s Day.

During COVID we have to make sure all plans are safe during Valentine’s Day. For example, you could have a nice relaxing day to yourself. You could get some chocolate and watch a movie; I recommend not watching a romantic movie because that’ll just make Valentine’s Day even worse for you. 

Another way you could spend Valentine’s Day is to create your spa. You could do so by filling up the bathtub and adding bubbles. You could load up some warm towels for your face and even get a mask to treat your skin. It’s important that you take good care of your body and it would be perfect for this day.

If any of your friends are single, you could have a nice movie and treats at home with them. Remember, keep a small group of friends because we are still in a pandemic. Some movies or shows you could watch are WandaVision (Disney +), Love, Simon (Hulu), One Day At a Time (Netflix), Clouds (Disney +). You could also cook or bake with your friends. You could make some cookies or cook a delicious meal. You can even go out with your friends for dinner. 

The thing I like to do is to have a photoshoot. You can get all dressed up for yourself and take some pictures. You could also, if you are needing a relationship, to put yourself out there more, let people know who you are, and you can look for a significant other instead of just waiting around for them . Get out of your comfort zone and talk to other people, talk to them, get to know them, and if they like you back then ask them out.

Some tips and tricks for this time of year are to keep off social media. If you go on Snapchat, Instagram, etc. you will find pictures of couples, dinners, etc. You want to avoid that, you’re gonna start thinking that you want a relationship like that and then probably have a mental break down, you do not want to do that! You don’t need to worry about being single because you can have more time and care for yourself, you are perfect the way you are and you do not need to change for anyone!
