A Single Girl’s Guide to Valentine’s Day

The following post is an editorial piece. It is the independent opinion of one writer and it is not an endorsement. It’s about an FJC member’s favorite way to spend Valentine’s Day. 

Love is in the air and it reeks of a middle school locker room. Grocery stores pack their isles with overpriced chocolate candy and stuffed animals that will eventually end up being on clearance the next day.

Valentine’s day is overrated, especially if you are single.

 You may not have a significant other, but that does not mean you cannot celebrate Valentine’s Day.  Spend your day doing things girls in relationships envy.

1. Obsess over Cat memes

3. Treat yourself

Since you did not have to spend money on someone else this Valentine’s Day, treat yourself to a mani-pedi or a new pair of shoes. Guys will come and go, but shoe love is for life.

4. Take advantage of surplus candy

Indulge in a relationship with chocolate this Valentine’s Day. Who cares if one truffle has more calories than a slice of pizza. This is the one day you deserve to stuff face.

5. Voodoo doll

Make a Valentine’s Day voodoo doll of your ex. Stab him in the heart for breaking yours.

6. Hang out with your single pals

Go shopping, go on a hike, go out to eat, or go to a concert with your fellow single friends. Share awful date stories and celebrate the perks of being single, like not having to shave your legs.
