I can almost smell the flowers now that I won’t be receiving tomorrow… almost… Singles Awareness Day (S.A.D.) is a holiday celebrated by single people. It serves as a complement to Valentine’s Day for us single people. On Singles Awareness Day, we singles must gather to celebrate (or commiserate) in our single status. We don’t need to be in a relationship to celebrate life, right?? Here are some innovative ways to combat the loneliness this Feb. 14!



Take your mind off the fact that you’re probably forever alone, and worry about bigger problems. Go volunteer for a worthwhile cause.  Give to others by spreading your love.  It’ll put you in a better mood by the end of the day, no doubt!


Treat Yourself

My personal motto is treat yourself because you deserve it! Buy yourself a heart-shaped pizza and eat the whole thing. Krispy Kreme has heart-shaped donuts, too. Or, you could always get a box of chocolate covered strawberries delivered to yourself (or send some to me… here’s the link… Shari’s Berries).


Road Trip

Pile all your single friends in your car and start driving! No need for a GPS, just start bumping to a playlist of empowering songs and hit the open road.


Watch a Horror Movie

You do not have to watch a sappy love story or romantic comedy on Valentine’s Day to remind you of your loneliness. You’re better than that. Instead, go for the less obvious choice — a horror movie. Get your scare on to take your mind off the day of love.


Go Bowling

Bowling is a classic in my opinion. You’ve already struck out when it’s come to your love life, so you should be a pro by now who’s able to knock down some pins.


Hopefully this list gave you a few ideas about how to spend your S.A.D. tomorrow. If you remember nothing I’ve written, remember this — don’t forget to buy yourself some of that half-priced candy on Wednesday.
