If you haven’t been shot with Cupid’s arrow yet or your Valentine is yet to be found because he or she is still hiding under a rock, fear not.
You have a whole list of things to celebrate on Feb. 14, also known to many as Singles Awareness Day.
It’s great to be single on Valentine's Day because you don’t have to please anyone or care about anyone’s opinion of what you want to do. Go see that horrible or cheesy movie that you’d never go to on a date.
You can also really enjoy being with your friends. Get a group together and go to a fun concept restaurant or winery. The Connecticut Wine Trail offers tastings and special events.
If dining out isn’t your thing, try out a kickboxing class, dance-fitness class or indoor rock climbing with friends to get your endorphin count up.
You also have the freedom to date around. Try a speed dating event or if you want to take the plunge into the world of online dating, sign up for a site—you can always shut it down and pretend like it never happened if you don’t like it!
Getting dressed up to go to a party is fun, but sometimes it’s even better when you can dress down for a party in your pajamas. Get takeout, put on a mud mask, read magazines and watch your favorite movies.
Another reason to celebrate is that nobody yells at you about your credit card bill (except yourself). Go get a facial and a cute new outfit.
You also don’t have to decorate your home to fit anyone else’s taste. Go buy yourself a new item.
And the best thing of all—when you celebrate Singles Awareness Day with your friends, you have a whole group of people to share with.
