February 14 is the universal day for showing your SO how much you love them. While couples get mushy around this time, it’s also that time of the year when singles do their best to dodge the dreaded ‘Valentine’s Day plan’ question.
Just because you don’t have a special someone to cherish this day with, doesn’t mean that the day itself can’t be made special. Whether you just got out of a relationship or have been third-wheeling for pretty long, make Valentine’s Day 2019 all about you by choosing from this list of activities happening near you. You’re welcome.
