(For ladies only. Men; don’t read.) This Saturday is Valentine’s Day – a perfect opportunity for a date with that great guy. But what if, like me, you’re single and dateless? Here’s what you can do instead:

7. Take yourself out for a nice dinner!
Spend Sunday reconciling how you managed to spend less on a filet mignon, a lobster tail and a bottle of fine wine than you spent at Desserts R’ Us.

6. Stay home with an expensive bottle of wine and your favourite flavour of Haagen Dazs!
Spend Sunday figuring out which one you regret the most. (Hint: it’s the combination of the two.)

5. Knit a sweater!
Realize Sunday morning that it’s never going to fit you – it’s for that fabulous guy you don’t have. Spend the rest of the day undoing it and knitting yourself a blankie to cry into.

4. Watch The Notebook!
Spend Sunday convincing yourself that it’s better not to have a romantic partner – you won’t have to worry about remembering who he is in 50 years.

3. Watch Magic Mike!
Spend Sunday shopping for replacement batteries. (You know what I’m talking about, ladies.)

2. Get yourself dolled up and go to the theatre to watch 50 Shades of Grey!
Spend Sunday inventing excuses for your family to explain why the fire department showed up at your house at midnight. Anything but the truth – that you somehow managed to handcuff yourself to the bed posts in your sexiest lingerie and then dropped the key but managed to hang on to the phone. Oh myyy!!

1. Spend Saturday night curled up with a nice glass of your favourite beverage and a great book!
Sunday, repeat.

I don’t know about you gals, but I think I might stick with #1. πŸ˜‰

  1. Number 6 sounds pretty darn good to me!


  2. #1 Sounds great, even with a partner! Enjoy!


  3. I’m watching Hockey Night in Canada with my dad. I’m cooking a frozen pizza and having a few beers with him. Best. Valentines. Ever πŸ™‚


  4. Funny, funny! The picture that you included is funny, weird and somehow terrifying all at the same time – ewww! Good post, thanks.

  5. #3 is pretty funny! My exciting evening will consist of Sponge Bob movie with the fam. What book do you think you’ll read?


  6. You had me at, “Men: don’t read.” I’m always searching for understanding of the fairer sex. I’ll never find it, but I love the journey. Here’s a quote that might some of the girls might get a kick out of…I certainly believe it myself. β€œI think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men, they are far superior and always have been.” -William Golding

  9. Great List πŸ˜€
    I have booked tickets for a Thriller movie with another girl friend who is also single πŸ™‚
    I was tempted to go for FSOG but then with the amount of censor cuts that might have been done for the audiences here, it wouldn’t be worth it πŸ˜‰ .


  10. Too funny! This will definitely help me come up with options for my single girl valentine’s day πŸ™‚
    (#1 is probably the way I’ll go but you never know right?)


  11. Great post πŸ™‚ #1 sounds like me last year, and if I was still single this year, it probably would be again, but I’m not and we’ve got a really nice Valentine’s Day planned.


  12. I’m spending Saturday with a couple of friends planning our trip to Vietnam. Then Sunday will likely follow #1 pretty closely!


  13. Sounds as good advices Linda with some fun too πŸ˜€


  14. Number 3 reaches the parts no man has dared to broach, Linda! Damn good post anyway – made me laugh! xxx


  15. #4 is the real winner! lol
    I am not a fan of Valentine’s Day. I think it will be like any other Saturday, although I’ll maybe bake somethin festive with the girls, cause you know, they care about hearts and stuff. And I’m sure The Mister will eat them, because he cares about sweets πŸ˜‰
