The GUIDE offers you pointers on how singles can also make the most of Valentine's Day

For all those feeling blue for not having a special someone on Valentine’s Day, fret not. The GUIDE suggests you indulge in some me-time activities instead and make the most of the day:

Go for a short trip alone
Since Valentine’s Day is on a Friday, there is an extended weekend to look forward to. So, instead of lazing or watching sentimental films, take a short, adventurous trip or a road trip alone over the weekend. You will get to meet different people and get to know about newer places that will make you happier than a dinner date could. You can head to Lonavala, Lavasa or Amby Valley where picturesque locations will welcome you. You can freely listen to your own type of music and eat at road-side joints. Mahabaleshwar and Matheran can also be on your list if you are thinking of an extended drive.

Enjoy some me-time and go for a short trip

Treat yourself
Indulge yourself; go purchase an expensive dress or gadget. Not having a date can actually save you quite an amount of money as you don’t end up splurging on gifts, movies and dinner. Go for a manicure-pedicure session or spa therapy. As they say, loving yourself is the best gift you can give yourself.

Opt for a rejuvenating massage to cheer up

Go clubbing and make new friends

Gather up
There must be few friends around who are single like you. You can have a cool party or a movie outing with them to celebrate. Even friends and family can be your Valentine on the occasion. Organise a get-together for your family or gather at a friend’s place for a musical jamming session.
