5 Fun Ways To Spend Valentine's Day If You've Just Got Dumped


If you’re single or have just been dumped, then you must be sick of all the heart-shaped chocolates and roses already. Yep, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and what makes this ridiculous Hallmark day worse, is when you’re celebrating it….alone!

Don’t panic. Deep breaths. We’ve got your back! You can still celebrate Valentine’s Day without a special someone in your life (that includes Ben & Jerry). 

Here at SRSLY HQ, we’ve created a list of 5 fun ways you can spend Valentine’s Day, even if you’re on your own.

Get on a dating app

Trust us on this one, download Huggle and swipe your worries away! This may not seem like an original idea but actually it’s one of the best things you can do if you want to take your mind off of things and have some fun. Plus, Huggle is a little different to other dating apps as it matches you with people who go to the same places as you. Either swipe through people or tap on one of your locations to discover who else goes there. Who knew meeting like-minded souls was so easy? 


Do a good deed

Spend the day helping someone or volunteer at a charity. Not only will you be doing good, you’ll feel good. Start researching charities or animal shelters that you’d like to support. Or simply ask a friend or family member if you could help with anything. You’d be amazed by happy this will make you feel. 


Treat yourself

Why not treat yourself to a day of shopping or a spa day? Go on! You deserve it. Do the things you enjoy - even if that’s staying in and watching your favourite movie. Go crazy and reward yourself for being fabulous!


Cook for your single friends

Host a dinner at your crib for all your single friends. If you’re not a great cook, then get a takeaway. Spending time with your friends, especially when you’re newly single, is very important. Get everyone around and impress them with your cooking skills (or the fact you know the local Chinese takeout’s number by heart).


Visit your loved ones

We often forget to make time for the people we love. So of all the days in the year, go and visit your family or friends on the ‘Day of love’. Logistically if you can’t travel easily to your loved ones, then organise a Skype call. Spend time with the people who love you.
