Just because you’re single doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy Valentine’s Day. And just because you’re lonely doesn’t mean you have to be completely alone.
Cuddle up with that favorite teddy bear of yours from third grade and enjoy some of these great flicks on Netflix. Or, if you want to feel like Olivia Pope this Valentine’s Day, grab your oversized glass of red wine and glue yourself in front of the television.
The movie “In Your Eyes” received 4.1 stars on Netflix, so we can assume that it’s a must-watch. In the movie, two strangers at different ends of the country have a telepathic bond that lets each other see what the other sees. This deep connection that the two share eventually leads to love.
For those of you who aren’t feely too “lovey dovey” this Valentine’s Day, try watching “The Interview.” The dynamic duo James Franco and Seth Rogan are sure to leave with laughing so hard that you cry in this one. The great combo of the idiot friend and the sensible one are sure to have you forgetting that you’re single on the most loving day of the year. It’ll have you thinking, “What’s a Valentine’s Day?”
Although it’s not a movie, you can definitely begin to binge-watch “Dexter.” It probably seems like the furthest thing away from a traditional Valentine’s Day, but the main character’s numbness and inability to get attached to people will make you grateful that you’re single and not dating a psychopathic serial killer.
Dinner for two? Says who? Toss out that half-empty tub of Blue Bell ice cream and go out for some real food!
Masato is always a great option if you’re in the mood for some sushi or Japanese food. You know what’s even better about it? You don’t have to sit inside staring across that table at an empty booth or chair. All you have to do is call ahead and take it to-go. Don’t forget to grab some extra yum-yum sauce while you’re at it.
Don’t let being single bring you down this Valentine’s Day and don’t be the one sobbing on the couch, picking out the cookie dough in your ice cream. You may not have a relationship to celebrate but you’ll always have yourself!
