Valentine’s Day – a day for couples to celebrate their love and singles to wallow in loneliness. But do not to worry, because even those without a special someone to share the day with can find a way to enjoy the day.

Keep your money to yourself.

According to business insider, the average American is predicted to spend around $162 this year on Valentine’s gifts. $162 seems like a lot of money to spend on someone else, especially when $162 can buy exactly 25 large pepperoni pizzas from Little Caesars, including tax.

Order takeout

Speaking of food, why take a person out when you can take out some cheap, delicious and extremely unhealthy fast food. With all the couples eating out, you can expect crowded restaurants and long waits, so unless you can cook, takeout sounds pretty good.

Stay home

Just like restaurants, lovers will pack buildings. With couples out on dates, buildings will resemble sardines in a can. Plus, your friends might be out on dates too. This means you might spend the day at home, but that’s more comfortable than the outdoors anyway.

Watch Netflix

A dark room, chocolate and Netflix. These three things will immerse you in a show so much that you might just forget how lonely you feel being single on Valentine’s Day. Or watch a comedy for a laugh.

Sleep

With couples out late on their dates, you could show them the real winner by a full night’s sleep. It might sound lame, but you can’t feel left out if you fall asleep. That is, unless you dream about being left out of things. Plus you’ll wake up refreshed and awake.

Try not to feel lonely

Did you know that chocolate contains phenylethylamine, the chemical responsible for the feeling of love? This means that by eating chocolate, you gain the same feeling as you would if you weren’t single. To eat egregious amounts of chocolate is just one way to ward off the crippling loneliness.

Enjoy the chocolate sale the next day

The real holiday begins the day after Valentine’s Day when stores who bought too much candy have nothing to do with it. Stores put up candy and chocolate for clearance at dirt cheap prices. You can buy to your heart’s (or stomach’s) content.
