How to “celebrate” Valentine’s Day if you’re single

Single life sucks right? Single people have to go through Christmas, New Years, then boom here comes another holiday to remind the singles that they are still single: Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is the day to celebrate the love you have for your significant other, but what if you don’t have one? This is the article for you. The Colt staff has put together a must have list for a lonely Valentine’s Day. When you’ve finished reading it – and adding the songs to your Spotify, downloading the movies onto your computer and making your grocery list – comment below to tell us how you are spending your Valentine’s Day.

Lastly, to top it all off, we’ve got to have some comfort food to go along with our music and movies.

To start us off we have our typical sugar filled, carb overloaded movie snacks:

  • Cookies
  • Brownies
  • Popcorn

Next up, something with substance:

  • Pizza 
  • Wings
  • Chicken Tenders (From Popeye’s? I think yes. If you think no then find a door and go.)

And finally, the miscellaneous foods:

  • Chocolate covered strawberries
  • Donuts that have a hole in them (just like my heart)
  • Cookie dough

But in all seriousness, here at The Colt we just wanted to take a minute to say that whether you are spending this Valentine’s alone or with a significant other you are valued and it is important to love yourself regardless.  (And don’t forget, single or not, the best part of it all is the discounted chocolate on February 15.)

The Colt staff shares their must have music, movies and snacks for those who are celebrating Valentine’s Day alone.
