A single person’s guide to Valentine’s Day at ASU

We’ve got your back

The time of year is finally here – the most romantic holiday of the year, Valentine’s Day. This is the day where couples spend a ridiculous amount of money on their other half and take to social media to declare their love for one another.

It is truly romantic – but the day is a single’s person’s nightmare. Here’s a guide to beating the single’s blues.

Netflix and Chill – solo version

Get ready to binge watch all your favorite Netflix shows with you, yourself and your snacks.

Avoid social media

Looking at all your friends in happy relationships will only make you more upset. Avoid this at all costs.

Comfort eat at Mill’s finest establishments

Sparky’s ice cream on Mill Avenue is a great place to eat away your Valentine’s Day blues. Or avoid the loneliness of their 2-for-1 deal and turn to Slickables instead. $2 and it has the benefit of being a pure solo event so you don’t have to feel bad about having no one to share with.

Honestly who even needs a relationship when there’s ice cream sandwiches?

Or hit Mill for a singles night out

Now if you don’t want to feel sorry for yourself, get a bunch a single friends and head out to Mill Avenue for a fun night out.

Girls night in

If you don’t feel like going out but do not want to be alone, invite all your single friends for a single’s night in. I mean who needs a lover when you have friends, right?

Or go on a Tinder date

Yes Tinder is a joke, but who knows you might get lucky.  A lot of people have been, so might as well give it a go.

Valentine’s Day is overrated, and if you are one of the folks who happens to be single, don’t fear the day.

Happy Single’s Awareness Day! Just don’t end up being someone’s third wheel.
