Singles can paint the town  -- or home --  red on Valentine’s Day.

We’ve managed to put unnecessary pressure on ourselves on Valentine’s Day, should there not be a candlelit dinner for two on the horizon. But between the copious stores decked out in pink and white to restaurants advertising special prix fixe menus, we’re reminded of February 14 whether we celebrate it or not.

The best thing you can do if you’re single on Valentine’s Day is to put yourself first and remember that love is about more than flowers and chocolate.

 

Love takes many forms

Love isn’t reserved for committed relationships alone. Consider your friends and family (even pets!) who have been there for you through thick and thin, and you’ll feel anything but alone on Valentine’s Day. Take it a step further by giving the people on your list a call or organize a get-together that focuses on the value of your relationship — not the fact that you’re single.

Solo or with loved ones, participate in an activity such as class at the gym, cooking, planning a spa day, or simply vegging out in front of the television for a movie fest — preferably not tear-jerkers or romance movies.
