It's ok to not have a Valentine on February 14th. Actually, it can make this Tuesday extra-ordinary. Whether it included spending time with your friends or having some much needed "you time", here are ideas of how you can celebrate Valentine's Day.
1. Go Skiing
In the Northeast and in New York, you’re only a few hours away from skiing slopes. It’s still winter time in February making it a great time to ski. Skiing is something most people don’t do often, so it will be sure to spice up your V-day. Most winter resorts have beginner lessons that you can utilize.
2. Speed Dating
If you still are in the spirit of love, look and see if there is speed dating in your area. Many cities host speed dating events, here's the local speed dating site in NYC. Many bars will host singles nights because most couples are not going to go on Valentine's day.
3. Retail Therapy
Grab some friends that like shopping and hit up some outlets near you! Or mix it up, and instead of going to your local shopping mall, go to one further away. But buying a couple shirts or shoes you need will make you feel better and you can look fresh so you’re ready to get back into the dating game.
4. Host a Movie and Wine Night
Invite all your single friends over for a fun night of movies and wine. If you are feeling brave, you can even invite your friends who maybe just started dating someone and tell them to bring their date as long as it will be a mix of single people and couples. Buy some wine you haven’t tried yet and keep it lighthearted!
5. Do Something Nice for Someone Else
Valentine's day is all about love. Show you love people by giving back in some way. You could volunteer at an animal shelter or decide to go visit your grandparents and take them out to eat! If you’ve been looking to get a pet, Valentine's day is a great day to adopt an animal (if you’re ready for that step).
These fun things to do on Valentine's day are sure to bring the loving spirit into your day. We hope you have the best Valentine's Day this February 14th!
