Regardless of your relationship status, Valentine’s Day is a great day to spend with friends and loved ones. Even if you are single on Valentine’s Day, there are a number of social and solo activities you can enjoy. As you make your plans, be sure to consider these exciting Valentine’s Day alternatives.
Experts in the fields of love and relationships have shared their favorite Valentine’s Day alternatives for singles on the feted day of love.
Valentine’s Day Alternatives for Singles Who Want to Be Social
Dr. Paulette Kouffman Sherman, psychologist and author of ‘Dating from the Inside Out: How to Use the Law of Attraction in Matters of the Heart’ by Atria Books, suggests the following tips for things singles can do on Valentine’s Day:
1. Go Out & Be With People: Do not sit home alone just because you’re not coupled off. Be with the people you love like friends and family and celebrate the great support you do have that day.
2. Give Back: Valentine’s Day is a time to be loving and generous with others. So, it’s a terrific day to volunteer and visit the elderly who are alone or shut-ins who are homebound or chronically ill or homeless people who don’t have family around. Love does not just have to be romantic. Open your heart today.
3. Go to a Single’s Event: Instead of being depressed that you don’t have a mate, do something about it. Valentine’s Day is a great day to go out because other singles might be looking too. How romantic would it be to meet your mate on Valentine’s Day? And even if you don’t, your actions are showing the world you are ready to attract your mate and it is just a matter of time till you do.
