For some, being single on Valentine's Day is a terrible thing. Yet for others, it's revered and celebrated. What do you do when you're not dating or otherwise in a relationship on Valentine's Day? Share your thoughts, ideas, tips and suggestions here.
Being a widow
- My husband of 22 years died last September, so I have been going through a lot of firsts this year. Valentine's Day is easier than the others so far, without playing any tricks to cheer myself up.

Just Another Day
- Don't buy into the commercialism of Valentine's Day. It unfairly makes single people feel bad about being single. Have a nice time alone or with friends and be happy about your independence.
If it still bothers you, online dating has become much more common and the stigma has more or less been lifted. Some sites allow you to express yourself and meet others without having to share too much personal information right away. This makes it feel more real, and you are not being matched by a computer. So don't feel the Valentines Day blues, but if you do feel them, don't be afraid to try online dating!
