Valentine’s Day Activities for All

Awe…Valentine’s Day.

The day where couples relish in their glorious and somewhat nauseating love and the single people celebrate or curse the fact that they are not yet “cuffed.”

According to a twitter poll, 55 percent of surveyed CHS students are single or in a ‘complicated’ relationship.

There is, in fact, an alternative holiday called Single Awareness Day (S.A.D.).  However, there is no need to be sad just because you don’t carry around the old ‘ball and chain’. But incase you do find yourself feeling down, here are some ideas of Valentine’s Day activities that are sure to lift your spirits and allow you to enjoy the holiday just as much as everyone else.

  • Movie night with fictional boo: Pick out a few movies where the lead role makes you swoon; grab your favorite treats, turn out the lights and get ready to binge.
  • Personal day: Set aside a few bucks from your paycheck and SPLURGE. Buy some slippers or a good pair of Nike’s and continue to run away from commitment.
  • Ladies night: Call up some of your gal-pals, have Ubereats bring you some ‘smack’ food, turn on Netflix and relax.
  • Guy’s night: Who says guys can’t spend some quality time together too? Grab some bros and hit up Top Golf or have a wing eating contest at Buffalo Wild Wings.

Now if you are single but ready to mingle, here are some pick-up lines sure to snatch you a date.

  • I’m sorry I didn’t get you a box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day, but if you want something sweet, I’m right here.
  • You know what’s on the Valentine’s Day menu? Me-n-u.
  • This Valentine’s Day, let’s make like fabric softener and Snuggle.
  • Cupid called. He says that he needs my heart back.
  • Do you like cats? Because I’d like you to take meowt for Valentine’s Day.

For those of you that are happily hooked on that special feeling, here are a few date ideas for the two of you.

  • Indoor Picnic: Invite your girl or guy on over for some sandwiches and sweet treats. Layout a blanket in the middle of your living room, put out some battery-powered candles and enjoy!
  • Sweet treats: Grab a box of ‘Betty Crocker: Red Velvet Cake MIx’, turn on some tunes and start mixin’! Sing your head off with your significant other and dig in to your yummy creation.
  • Arcade night: If board games aren’t you cup of tea, frisk the couch for some spare change and go out for a game night.
  • Netflix dinner: Preheat the oven for some pizza rolls and dinosaur nuggets, turn on your favorite show and cozy up with your partner for a tv marathon.
  • Snow day: Take a trip up north, pack up your snow gear and hit the slopes, build a snowman, or get competitive in a snowball fight.
  • Paint date: Grab some paint and a canvas, have some fun freestyling with each other. Maybe even gaze into each other’s eyes as you paint one another.

In the end, have fun on Valentine’s Day. It doesn’t matter if you go out or stay in, or even if you celebrate it as a couple; there is always room to spread love and a reason to celebrate!
