For single women, Valentine’s Day can mean, “having it all”! We can have friends, lovers, chocolate, champagne, and flowers - All the essentials of life, all on the same day. Being single is fun and flirtation is in the air everywhere, especially on the most romantic day of the year! This holiday is for everyone, including single people.
Moreover, there are many things to do alone or with your friends. Whether going to the museums, eating at your favorite restaurant, or simply shopping at one of the many beautiful stores in your area – this is a day to have fun.
There is no need to feel uncomfortable about being single on Valentine’s Day. With more women now living without spouses or partners, it is common to see many single women buying flowers for themselves, or splurging on expensive spas and other pampering items. Even if you are on a limited budget, you can find activities suited to your needs to enrich all the benefits of being single. Face it, without the need to keep another person happy, you can do whatever you want whenever you want. And what better day to show the world how much you love yourself and your friends than deciding to celebrate this day by acknowledging that on this Valentine’s Day your big love is none other than…you!
With no partner, you are free to explore and define your own tastes, values, dreams, and goals. In addition, to living the life that you have always wanted without having to make the compromises that being part of a couple requires. Is this selfish behavior? Not at all! You are free to examine all parts of yourself, and when you are ready to introduce a bit of romance into the mixture, go for that to!
If you wish to have an intimate evening at home with all your friends, you can always have a Valentine’s Day Dinner & Movie Night. Complete with a romantic menu, lots of champagne, and inspired desserts from your favorite cookbooks. Or, choose a romantic menu designed for two and change it to accommodate several single friends. The key is to make this day uniquely special.
If you are ‘’creatively challenged’’ and unable to come up with an interesting menu just improvise. Bakeries are overflowing with gorgeous cakes and pastries, and the gourmet grocery stores can provide you with lots of delicious selections that will save your precious time for celebrating. Better still, have your friends create romantic designs of their own and have a Valentine’s Day Potluck Dinner. A very special way to celebrate Saint Valentine's Day.
