Single and wondering what you can do on Valentine’s day? Here are things you should be doing

Things, singles should be doing on Valentine’s Day


Valentine’s Day, a day that we all have long been associating with the idea of love and romance for one’s partner. It is an event that is identified as a time where lovers express their love and affection. But to me, what I feel is that the idea has become more or less started finding its relevance with couples, and not for the people who love each other. Well, definitely, the day is for couples as much as it is for any individual who wishes to enjoy, express, and cherish love, not just for others but for oneself as well. So, for those who are single, there is no reason why they should not be celebrating valentine’s day because it is a time for you to invest in love for others and in self-love.


Here are the things that singles can do on Valentine’s day


1. Organise a party with your single friends
