Our friends at the Student Advisor Blog also have more:
- Spend time with friends
Let’s face it, you’re not the only one who’s going to spend Valentine’s Day alone. Find a few other single friends and have some fun.
- Treat yourself
Being single means you don’t have to pay for someone else or split the check. You don’t have to buy a gift. You don’t have to go to a movie you don’t want to see. Take the money you would spend on a date and spend it on you. Buy yourself a gift or a delicious dinner – just for you.
Or, you can spend the day trying to find a mate. Many colleges have college towns have Valentine’s Day-related events you can attend in the hopes of finding “the one.”
- Spend time with your family
If your college is near your family, why not visit and have dinner with them? If they don’t live nearby, you can also call, Skype or Face Time.
- Do something you love
Not having a date gives you the time and freedom to do something you really enjoy. Watch whatever you want on TV, whether it’s the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” or ESPN. Read a good book. See a movie you want to watch. Play a game. Whatever you choose, enjoy it.
Hope you have a great Valentine’s Day.
