LONDON, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 13: DON'T BE DAVE: A new survey by Asda has revealed over half of British women have never received flowers on Valentine's Day and Dave is the most likely to forget his loved one this year. Asda and flower designer Joseph Massie have created a living floral billboard allowing Londoners, like Dave to take a single red rose for their Valentine #dontbedave at Victoria Station on February 13, 2015 in London, England.

No matter what your relationship status is right now, you know Valentine’s Day is coming up soon and you probably have some thoughts about it. People who are romantically involved may be looking forward to celebrating with their sweeties and may even feel bad for their friends who are single, but they shouldn’t. And that’s because not having a partner on Valentine’s Day is actually pretty great. If you’re riding solo this year, these are the perks you can look forward to:

  • You still feel the love – You don’t need a partner to spread love on Valentine’s Day, share it with your besties, your grandma, nieces and nephews, and you’ll get it back in spades. And if you are looking for romance, try the dating apps, Tinder confirms it saw a 10% increase in downloads on Valentine’s Day in 2019.
  • You get to do whatever you want – Whether that’s buying a box of chocolates for yourself, treating yourself to a set of fancy sheets, or ordering dinner in, one of the best parts of being single on February 14th means you get to spend it anyway you want.
  • You don’t have to force it – You can have a nice dinner and don’t have to worry about ditching your Spanx and not letting your date see your after-meal bloat. You can let it all hang out, if that’s your thing, and you don’t have to shave your legs either. Just a few more reasons why being single is awesome, especially on Valentine’s Day.
