Celebrating the Single Life

Two hands sharing a Valentine

Although Valentine's Day is a day of love, being single shouldn't stop you from having a good night. There are many things you can do with single friends or even alone.
NOTE: Do not define yourself by your relationship status. Your relationship status is not your identity. Realize that Valentine's Day is a commercial holiday. It is not about love and relationships; it is about selling flowers, candy, and diamond jewelry. Think of all the money you are saving.

Here are some options to keep you from sitting alone on Valentine's Day:

—You can go to the movies with a group of friends, but make sure they're all single to avoid awkwardness.

—You can spend all night on Tumblr looking at and reblogging pictures of cats or cute couples.

—You can hang out with your crush so next Valentine's Day you have a better chance of having a significant other.

—You can go bowling with your friends. Singles night!

—You can go to dinner with your family. Valentine's Day isn't only for couples, it's for people who love and care for each other.

—You can get a cat. They make wonderful companions.

—Show yourself some love! Buy some new bath salts and enjoy a nice warm bath.

—You could go to a party and get chocolate-wasted.

—You could read a romance novel. You know you love Fabio.

—Play Mario Kart for the Wii or any other gaming console.

—Indoor movie/game night? Why not?! Get some friends and watch romantic comedies. Guys, you can play Call of Duty.

—Sit around with your friends and make fun of silly people who believe in Valentine's Day.
Do not worry if you're single on Valentine's Day; go buy yourself a box of chocolates and celebrate being independent. There is no rule that says that you can't enjoy Valentine's Day as a single girl (or guy), with your single girlfriends and even guy friends. Raucous laughter, spontaneous karaoke and good food might just make you forget that you're trying to forget that it's Valentine's Day.

Directions for Cooking Meatballs
1. Combine all the ingredients, except the olive oil, into a large bowl and use your hands to mix everything together.
2. Heat your olive oil in a large pan. We suggest using a pan that you can later cover, and that is large enough to brown all your meatballs and also hold your sauce to simmer the meatballs in. Brown your meatballs on all sides, turning fairly constantly.
3. Pour a sauce mixture into the sauce pan with the onions and garlic and bring to a boil. Reduce sauce to a simmer and cover it. Let the sauce simmer. Stir the sauce occasionally during this time, and do not let it boil again. Before serving, taste the sauce and add any additional spices, such as sugar, salt, or whatever else you think is needed to taste. Pour mix in with your browned meatballs.
4. Serve and Enjoy!
