How Should You Spend Valentine’s Day?

Dinner Date 5 minutes tops

Surprises are...

Twitter or Instagram?

Not so great.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a romantic movie. Head to the theatre with your significant other or just relax at home with a bowl of popcorn.

Is the day a big deal?



Movie Night



Bowling Keep it casual with a little friendly competition. Whether you go with friends or someone special, bowling is a great way to have some fun on Valentine’s Day.

How to survive Valentine’s Day Valentine’s Day: a holiday dedicated to making you feel even worse about being single. Suddenly, adorable couples are the most obnoxious human beings on the planet and the color pink makes you want to throw up. It won’t be easy, but there are a few ways you can survive Valentine’s Day single. Eat your feelings. If you have never eaten excessive amounts of chocolate to make your problems go away, you’re missing out. Ice cream is good, too, if you run out of chocolate.


Even if Valentine’s Day isn’t your thing, you don’t have to spend the day alone. Invite some friends over and just hang out.



Watch sappy movies.

Live vicariously through characters with an unrealistically perfect romance. Watch “The Lucky One” if you like Zac Efron or “The Notebook” if you like Ryan Gosling. If you don’t like either of them, I can’t help you.

Eat your feelings with friends.

When you’re drowning your sorrows in chocolate, invite a friend over to feel a little less lonely... or just to complain together about being single on Valentine’s Day.



Post about it on social media.

If you are single and miserable, why not let the world know? Complaining about being “forever alone” is a great way to earn sympathy from your Twitter followers and Facebook friends.

Listen to Taylor Swift.

Whatever your situation, I guarentee you Taylor has been through it, too, and written a song about it. Angry about a break up? “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” Sad about a breakup? “Teardrops On My Guitar.” Waiting for a certain someone to notice you? “You Belong With Me.” The list goes on.

Hate on couples.

Send yourself flowers.

On Valentine’s Day, everyone wants a rose. Problem: you’re single. Solution: bribe a friend, pay a dollar, and you’ve got your very own secret admirer. Don’t worry; if other people accuse you of sending it to yourself, they’re clearly just jealous.


Dearest Gavin, I respect you more than any few words could ever hope to express. Perhaps in time our love will bloom anew.


You're an incredible ball of enthusiasm. I can't help but smile and laugh nonstop when I'm around you. Hopefully there will be more adventures in the future. Best wishes! -SingingSharp

Sometimes you just need to let it out. No shame. Just be prepared with waterproof mascara.

In the end, Valentine’s Day is just like any other day and it will be over before you know it. Meanwhile, learn to be happy no matter what your relationship status may be, even if that means eating five pounds of chocolate.

Dear Ang, I want to get to know you better ;) - J.C.

Deanna DrennenAre you from Starbucks? Because I like you a latte. -Your Secret Admirer (It's totally not Jack btw)

YOU CAN do anything in the world if you put your mind to it! (Except give me a piggyback ride!) Thanks for everything! :) :) :) :)

To the 'Stoga community:

Jenna, Taking out your anger on others is a great way to make yourself feel better. Why should couples get to be all happy when you have to spend the day alone? A subtle glare or snide comment should do the trick.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of my friends! Lots of love xoxo
