10 Ways To Spend Valentine’s Day if You’re Single

Posted on 14. Feb, 2015 by in General, Opinion

Yet another year of spending Valentine’s Day without a partner, but this time spice up your day and make the best of it for yourself without needing any special someone. Also, never forget you’re one of those who don’t have to buy gifts, or expect ones that turn out to be horrendous, so cheers for having some spare cash in your pocket. Anyway, fear not, this list might be just what you need.

 1. Movies

Whatever happened to going to the movies with your single besties? Gather up your friends and go have a movie marathon and stuff your face with popcorn! If cinemas don’t sound appealing, you can always download a few on your laptop, connect it to your TV, order takeout and have it at your place.

 2.Get something done

 Remember that assignment you procrastinated last week? Or that chore your mom asked you to do but never did? When was the last time you cleared out your wardrobe and drawers? Whether it’s doing volunteer work, planting a tree somewhere as a thanks to the environment, helping around the house, practicing a hobby or doing things you ought to be doing. Well, get moving and do all the things you’ve wanted to do!

 3. Go paint-balling

This is by far one of the best and most fun things you can ever do. Grab some friends, and try it out. It’s okay if you’ve never tried it before or don’t know how it goes, you will probably be told everything you need to know there, and it’s an experience worth your while.

4.Go/Try somewhere/something new

This includes eating at a new restaurant, going on a Nile cruise, or just going to places you haven’t been to before. Did you try the GMAX reverse Bungee in Mall of Arabia? No? You probably should. Also, there are many cafes in old Cairo, and a lot to see in museums and such places. You can always attempt going there by different transportation methods if you don’t own a car.

 5.Buy yourself something

It doesn’t have to be something super expensive, but treat yourself nevertheless. It could be a new pair of beats or even something as small and nice as candy. Be creative!


 Hit the gym and try out some aerobics, or do some cardio warming up at home, or even take a dancing or yoga class. Any sport activity will make you feel better about yourself, and who knows, you might even like it enough to do it again on other days!

 7.Have a BBQ party

Whether it’s outdoors or at your place, with your family or with friends, BBQs are BBQs. Blast some music, fill that icebox with drinks, prepare cocoa and marshmallows, light a fire and get grillin’!

8.Video Games

 Video games are a lot of fun. If you’re not a fan of COD, Fifa or even a gamer at all, try letting a pro friend teach you how to play and see if you’ll enjoy it!

 9. Surprise someone

Go through your circle of friends, and you’ll find that at least one of them is facing a problem of some sort, make their day and surprise them with something that would put a smile to their face, or try to help them out with anything that they’re facing. If you don’t have such a friend, surprise your parents with a dinner for the two of them, or do anything that would cheer them up.

 10. Make a list

 Lastly, sit with yourself or with a group of friends and write down all the beautiful things about being single. You can write a list each, and compare your them when you’re done. Trust me, you’ll find a lot.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
