Feeling Blue on Valentine’s Day? Here Are Valentine’s Ideas

There are a lot of single people who cannot stand Valentine’s Day. Just the thought of this holiday makes them cringe. Retailers and restaurants push cards, dinners, candy, flowers, and other Valentine’s ideas for couples. It’s bad enough that they know they’re single, but retailers reinforce their “singleness” with weekly advertisements.

Don’t be blue on Valentine’s Day? Some people need all the help they can get when it comes to romance. If this means having a greeting card company remind them that it’s a good idea to tell or show their mate how much they care, so be it. You can be happy that you’re not in a relationship where your mate needs this help.

Valentine’s ideas for single women are endless. You can take yourself to the movies, go to an art gallery, or get your hair and nails done. Ladies, you can buy your own Valentine’s flowers. You can buy your own bouquet of red roses.

Guys can golf without anyone giving them grief about it. They can go fishing or play basketball with the guys. Rock climbing would be fun as well. Host a poker game, crank up the music, and just be guys.

There’s no reason for men and women to sit at home and wallow in self pity on Valentine’s Day. It’s just another day that happens to be a holiday to express your love. Being single does not mean that you must go into hiding on Valentine’s Day. Get out there and enjoy the day. Show yourself some love!

  1. Happy Valentine’s Day to you.
    I am single, but enjoy giving cards and candy to my two grandchildern and close family members. Without them it would be a lonely Valentine’s Day for sure.

  2. That’s great that you give on Valentine’s Day, as well as receive. It could be lonely, but just remember that there are many people in this world and in your community. Perhaps you have neighbors that help you out or someone smiles. Focus on that….
