Being single on Valentine’s day may not be the best considering all Valentine’s day posts are all around you, but it’s not the worst thing. There are plenty of things to do on Valentine’s day if you’re single.
It may be quite irritating to see all the red flowers, cute couples, and tacky messages all over your social media pages the first couple of weeks in February but worry not, you too can have an amazing Valentine’s day.
Here are a couple of things to do on Valentine’s day if you’re single:
Social Media Break
Take a break from Social Media this Valentine’s day. We usually immerse ourselves in social media a better part of the day making it very easy to have FOMO. On social media everyone is always posting their best life, no one posts their problems. You might get drowned with all the digital impressions about happy couples who are all but showing their love on the gram. This may cause you to go on a downward spiral. You will start stalking your Ex and trust, you don’t want to go down that rabbit hole.
