50+ Ways To Romance Yourself This Valentine’s Day

In case you weren’t aware, I’m a veteran singleton and not-so-strong, sometimes independent woman. I know for some single people – men and women alike – being ‘alone’ on Valentine’s Day can be pretty hard while others just sail on through it like it’s nothing. Regardless of what kind of single person you are, here are a few ways you can appreciate your single self this February 14th…

  1. Buy yourself flowers.
  2. Make a list of reasons why you are great (even if you don’t think you are).
  3. Make your favourite meal.
  4. Order in some takeaway.
  5. Indulge in dessert.
  6. Go for a walk somewhere that you feel comfortable and at peace.
  7. Watch your favourite movie, and remind yourself why you like it so much.
  8. Treat yourself to a day out to a local attraction.
  9. Make some time to read a book. Bonus points if it’s your favourite book.
  10. Go to a bakery and buy a cake or biscuit (and eat it!).
  11. Learn your favourite song on whatever musical instrument you play.
  12. Light a scented candle.

  31. Binge watch a TV show.
  32. Read up on something that interests you.
