You’re probably single and thinking ‘what the heck do I have to celebrate?’ so you rather sit home and squander all that ‘love’ on no one in particular. Well, who says you can’t pay a visit to others in the neighborhood; friends, elderly or to the orphanage and bring them gifts and smiles. If you want to show some love at the office by giving gifts to your colleagues, bring for everyone – it could be biscuits/cookies, candies etc – so as not to hurt some other’s feelings.
DO: Make the day splendid
Shower your fellow savvy single friends with affection and fanfare, invite your pals over for a singles soiree of board games and cocktails, a decadent dinner party, a movie marathon, by all mine, make yourself and others happy!
DON’T: Never think only of what to expect

DO: Give yourself a special treat
Rather than hoping to get a one time hitch with the opposite sex, Go shopping (or window shopping if you don’t have money), dress up nicely and go eat out at a nice fancy restaurant and maybe even meet interesting people at a fair or entertainment gathering.
