10 Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day (Without a Boyfriend)

14th-celebrate-day-of-love-47396

Hey, y’all! Welp, we’re approaching that holiday that singles despise…(at least some do) – valentine’s day! Whether it doesn’t matter in the least or it’s another painful reminder that you’re single, I’ve collected some fun things to do that don’t require a boyfriend!

I’m one of those people who it doesn’t really matter in the least. I’m not in a serious relationship yet, and while I look forward to being in one, I know I’m not alone! God will bring me a guy in His good timing, and I pray for contentment as I wait. It’s still hard, sometimes! Sometimes, when I feel lonely, the best thing to do is to spend time with or do things for others. It keeps my mind off of myself and helps me focus on what is important right now. I think it’s best, while you’re single, to focus on nurturing the relationships you have, instead of pining for what you don’t have.

Mini-pep talk over. XD Here are some fun things to do!

1. Read what God has to say about love.

2. Read Kristen and Bethany’s book Love Defined.

3. Invite some girlfriends over and have an art or coloring party.

4. Intentionally use this day to spend time with your brother, older or younger.

5. Go to a movie theater and see a movie with your sister or best friend. (Suggestions: Christopher Robin or Mary Poppins Returns!)

6. Ask an out-of-state friend to be your pen pal and buy this pen pal kit to help you get started. (Or read these pen pal tips!)

7. Sit in a coffee shop and write your heart out.

8. Put together a care package for a friend. Stuff a pretty box with fuzzy socks, a mug, hot cocoa, and candy.

9. Make a fancy dinner for your parents.

10. Last but not least, curl up with some ice cream (unless you’re like me, who thinks eating ice cream in the wintertime is looney) and watch a tragic romance or drama. (suggestions: Keeper of the Flame, Maytime, Roman Holiday.)

So, what are you doing for Valentine’s day?

    This is a great post! I am a supporter of not spending your Valentine’s Day depressed! I am also not a fan of recreational dating, either! haha “Dating with no intent to marry is like going to the grocery store with no money. You either leave unhappy or take something that isn’t yours.” -Jefferson Bethke

        I know!- I really love it! I’ve heard (er, read haha) you say that you won’t have your first kiss until your wedding day, and I am the very same way! It’s cool to find others that have our same views on dating.😉

    These are all great ideas, I’ll have to keep them in mind 😀 I’ll probably just be plowing away at schoolwork on Thursday hehe. But I also have a piano event at around noon, and girls’ bible study in the evening, so those should be fun!

    Excellent ideas, dear! This post was super fun to read, and I think it’s great to have the attitude of loving others on Valentine’s day rather than wishing you were loved by ____. :)

    Ooh, great ideas, Aria! It’s such a good idea to spend time with family and friends in on this holiday for me. (and I saw your watercolor pen in your picture. Aren’t they AWESOME?😜)
    Have a wonderful day!

    You got the right idea, girl. Valentine’s coming up and I haven’t figured out what to get myself yet *insert sarcastic laugh* and so I plan on occupying my mind with some lovely things such as these tomorrow!
