It’s Valentine’s Day, y’all!

This means your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds are most likely currently over-taken by lovey-dovey mush and pictures of gifts from bae, or your bitter, lonely friends complaining about how trivial today is. It’s a lot…we know.

Sure, Valentine’s Day is sort of silly – but it’s not all about romantic Beyonce-themed dinners and over-the-top displays of affection. So GTFOH with that 6 foot candy heart!

You don’t need a significant other to enjoy V-Day to the fullest.

Whether you’re spending the night home alone or kickin’ it with your fellow single ladies, V-Day’s got something for you. Just trust us on this one.

Because we know how much it can suck being single on Valentine’s Day, we’ve decided to help you make the most of your day.

Check it out.

Valentine’s Day is arguably the most romantic day of the year, so the pressure is definitely on to find a date…

I mean, seriously. Everyone seems to be coupled up right before Valentine’s Day, even your most perpetually single friends…

…You spend weeks prior prepping your dating site profile, trying to sound a bit more interesting and searching for the best Tinder picture…

…hit the gym a little bit harder should you have a reason to slip into that amazing bodycon dress you snagged for half off…

…and get a little less subtle with your flirting at the water cooler.

Don’t let the pressure go to your head. Being single doesn’t mean you have to agree to a first date with the douchey ex-frat bro you met at the bar last weekend…

…Because you deserve better!

Valentine’s Day divides single folks into two groups. You’re either a scorned single, scoffing at each and every slight bit of mush in your newsfeed…

…or this girl. 

Don’t be the latter.

Riding solo on Valentine’s Day shouldn’t get you down. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with you…

…and believe us, you’re far from alone.

Besides, relationships are totally overrated….

…and in the grand scheme of things, single folks are the ones coming out on top.

All day wives, girlfriends and side pieces across the country will be gushing about the romantic text they got this morning…

…and showing off their roses, teddy bears and chocolates. 

After a full day of this crap, you deserve a treat…

Curb your flower envy by picking up a bouquet of your favorite flowers on your way home from work…

…while you’re out, stock up on cheap wine and all your favorite sweet treats. Hold nothing back – calories don’t count when you’re devouring candy in a dark apartment while watching The Notebook.

Once you’re home, it’s on. Swap your business casual clothes for sweats…

…and call up your favorite take out spot, because pizza will never let you down.

After you’ve filled the void left by being single with enough food to feed a small family…

…you can catch up on some much needed “you time”…

…or queue up all your favorite sappy romantic movies. If you’re going this route, be sure to have plenty of tissues on deck…

…because no matter how many times you watch Ghost, this scene will always make you swoon.

Not into spending the night alone? Call up your single BFF…

…Because no man could ever get you like your best girl friend.

You guys have plenty of options. Either head out for dinner…

…Just know that people are going to think you’re together…

…& try to pawn off their Valentine’s Day specials on you.

Or hit up your favorite local dive bar…

…Just don’t overdo it or you may end up making decisions you’ll regret…

…or worse, doing this

So happy Valentine’s Day, singles…

…& better luck next year.
