4. Take your valentine out for a romantic picnic! A night under the stars is romantic any day of the year, you can have it in any location that you find special such as the beach, the park or even a rooftop.

10. If you don’t have a valentine, it’s perfectly fine because there are so many of us that don’t. Spend the day with your friends or maybe even throw a single’s only party!

No matter what you decide to do on this very special day, remember that it is not about the gifts or the plans, it’s about the celebration of your love.  If you don’t have a valentine this year, cheer up because there is, indeed, someone out there for you!
