50 Things to Do Solo on Valentine's and Galentine's Day

We have entered the month of love, and in just two weeks we’ll be knee-deep in little red paper hearts and bargain chocolates, so you know what this means! Give me your BEST Valentine’s Day date ideas so we can break out of the dinner date rut! Galentine’s or romantic, I don’t care, just make it creative, make it bold, make it fun, and hey- affordable is a good bonus too!

Whether you're single or spending Valentine's Day alone this year, I will not allow you to mope around. I believe this day should be celebrated every day whether you are with someone or not but take this commercial holiday to show yourself some extra self-love and celebrate YOU!

You don't need a date to have a good time — just me, myself, and I. I feel that we forget to be grateful for eliminating the wrong partner in our life and embracing singlehood until we find the right partner. Right now is when you focus on your truest pleasures and become the best version of yourself in the process. Remember that you always deserve the best, so don’t settle! This is the time to treat yourself and splurge doing whatever you want to do without a care in the world…so go on Queen, seize the day!
