Make other’s Valentines happy.

They say happiness comes naturally when you make others happy.

Have a date with yourself.

Do something crazy or naïve you think you’ll never do if you were in a relationship. Maybe watch a cheesy movie or have a reality TV marathon, go sky diving, buy yourself a gift. Have a night in and splurge yourself with all the guilty pleasures you can think of, maybe handmade chocolates or French champagne.
