We asked single students in Sheffield how they’re spending Valentine’s Day

It’s time for the couples to stop getting all the attention


When you're in a relationship, Valentine's Day usually involves romantic dates, maybe some flowers and a lot of #theboydonegood on Insta. This kind of romance dominates our social media feeds every February 14th and I, for one, am sick of it. This Valentine's Day, let's celebrate the singles, we asked Sheffield's single students what they're up to this Friday…

The classic 'Bridget Jones' night:

"I'm ordering the largest Papa Johns pizza I can find and binge watching Brooklyn 99, just my average Friday really" – 3rd year, Psychology, Uni of.

"Most likely watching the new 'To All The Boys I Loved Before' with a Dominos and being grateful that I don't have to put up with a boys shit. Although after my pizza I'll deffo be on tinder looking for a shag" – MA student, Financial Management, Hallam.

"Crying over a takeaway" … we've all been there – 3rd year, Sociology, Uni of.
