Alone on Valentine’s Day? Follow these steps for celebrating solo

Valentine’s Day was first celebrated over 1500 years ago in Ancient Rome, when a priest named Valentine officiated a variety of secret marriages after they were outlawed by Emperor Claudius II, but as Valentine’s Day has evolved over the years, it has left many single people feeling stressed and anxious about their lack of a romantic partner, according to Verywell Mind. With that said, here are a few ways to make your Valentine’s day one to remember, even if you’re single.

  1. Meet up with friends. If you have other friends who are single, organize a time to go out to eat or have a party with them to show them how much you appreciate their friendship. This can decrease your loneliness and remind both you and your friends how much you care about each other.
  2. Revise your self-care routine. If you’re unable to make plans on Valentine’s Day, spend it focusing on yourself. Order your favorite food, watch your favorite movie, meditate, read a book or take care of yourself in other ways, such as skin care or relaxation techniques.
  3. Do something you’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Take a mini vacation day, see a movie or go out to eat. Whatever it is that you do, spend Valentine’s Day caring for yourself instead of focusing on the long-standing tradition of dedicating your day to a significant other.
