We understand how depressing many people find being alone on Valentine’s day. The thought of not sharing the day with someone special can be quite frustrating especially when you have friends who are all booed up and in perfect relationships. It can seem a bit daunting but you should not let it get you down.
You can buoy up your spirits this period by doing any of these things.
1. Travel Solo
Another fun thing to do on Valentine’s Day if you are single is to travel alone, especially if you can afford it. There is no better moment to explore Nigeria or your city than when you are single and free. It doesn’t even have to be an exotic trip. You can start by touring points of interest close to you before embarking on long distance trips. You can travel by air or by road. But for interstate trips, we would advice you go by road so you don’t miss out on the interesting points along the way.
2. Host a Singles Party
If you prefer the company of other people to being alone, then host a party for you and your other single friends. You don’t have to go overboard for the party either. A few drinks and small chops will do. The aim of the party is for you and your fellow single friends to unwind and have fun while enjoying the company of each other. All love!
3. Treat Yourself
Most single people find the idea of taking themselves out on a date very awkward. Although it may seem strange, it is one of the calming ways to find happiness by yourself. There are so many places you can go on a date all by yourself. One of the best options is to go to a hotel near you and treat yourself to a nice and affordable buffet. We are sure that in whatever location you are, there are hotels that offers tasty and mouth watering buffet to guests at a very affordable price.
4. Go Shopping
Why not spoil yourself by going shopping this Valentine season. Consider shopping for that play-suit or shoes you have been day dreaming about for a while. You can even go shopping in the company of some of your single friends to make it more fun-filled and memorable. If your in Lagos, there are several great shopping malls to spend time at while having fun shopping. They are not so expensive either.
5. Read a Book
If you have not had time to read in a while, then this is the perfect time to do that. There is no better time to relax with a good book than on Valentine’s Day. Avoid reading academic books this season as valentine’s Day is not the time to get too serious. Just relax, read and enjoy!
6. Go relax at the beach
You can do this on your own or join a group. There is a calming effect that being on the beach has on a person and that is what we want you to experience. Get on your shorts, beach hats, sun glasses and flip flops and you are good to go. You can even take a good book along.
