Single as a Pringle this Valentine’s Day? Don’t you worry, you can be your own bae! You don’t have to spend this holiday in your sweatpants eating ice cream alone in your room. You can totally go out and slay the town, and here’s how!

You should celebrate the day of love by loving yourself. It’s amazing all the local things you can do by yourself and have an awesome time. From shopping to painting, you can relax and enjoy the fantastic life of being single.

Pump Some Iron



Go to a local gym and enjoy running or biking away all your troubles.

Exercise is a great way to get rid of stress and let out all your rage that your ex caused you in a safe and healthy environment.

Fine Dining and Breathing



You don’t have to be in a relationship to eat at a fancy restaurant, obvi. Try making a reservation in Atlantic City or go to Chinatown in Philly and enjoy awesome food without worrying if you need to pay or leave the tip.

But if you don’t want to dine alone, invite some other single friends to join you!

See a Flick



Luckily, not all movies are lovey dovey. Go to a local cinema and see a horror movie like Split or Rings. Or see some women kick butt in Hidden Figures. You could also watch an action movie and see XXX: Return of Xander Cage.

At the movies, you can be whoever you want and get lost in a whole new world. It’s a great way to escape life’s troubles.

Try a New Book Genre



Books are another great way to enter exciting new worlds! Snag a book from a local bookstore. We challenge you to get a book from a genre you usually don’t read and tell us on Facebook if you liked it or not.

We doubt you won’t be able to fall in love with it.

Create Something Cool



Art is endless creativity! Try making a new piece of art or buy some for your home at a local shop like Peace of Wood in Ocean City, NJ or go to a craft store and make original homemade collages.

You could also go down memory lane and visit a Color Me Mine and paint something rad. Art is endless creativity!
