Who the hell cares about Valentines Day? Oh...I know... Greeting Card companies, candy makers, flower shops, etc, etc, etc. Singles Awareness Day is way more interesting. I think bars, restaurants, and stores should have discounts for single people on February 14th. There are way more singles out there than happy couples.
So if you are single what do you do on this magical day? Well...don't be an asshole. There are some people who would love to have a night out with the one they love. Why not offer to babysit for someone so that they can enjoy their overpriced candlelight dinner? It's one night...let them have their fun...be a good person.
You can always throw an Anti-Valentines day party with your single friends. Maybe play Russian Roulette on Tinder and see who has to message the guy or gal they matched with. There is nothing more fun than making fun of this absurd holiday. So go all out!
Remember this shit holiday only happens once a year so why not take advantage of it as an awesome single guy or girl that you are. Just go to bed. Yeah I said it. This isn't some day where you need to counter punch something you don't have. It's just another Fu$king day. You might see some advice out there to treat yourself or focus on you. We are single not pathetic. We don't have to do anything different than last Tuesday. We don't have to worry about candy or flowers or over priced meals that your significant other might like or not like. No gifts.. no diamonds..no flowers...no candy...nuttin.
I myself will order a pizza .. open up a bottle of the finest Cabernet ...turn on a fantastic movie ... then i will fu$king go to bed happy. I suggest you do the same. The next day will be just like any other for everybody. What will you be doing on Valentines Day? Let me know in the comments below. I threw this MyTake together due to a commercial I saw for Valentines Day... so don't judge me! HA.

I approve of this take- thank you sir!!!
People think I'm bitter about vday because I'm single?
No, even when I was in relationships, I wouldn't let my partners get me anything. They could buy me candy or plushies the day after when they were half price. But I refuse to encourage a commercialized holiday that corporations use to make money off people. You don't need a specific day to tell your partner you love them- hell, you can do that anyday of the year! Why just on Valentine's day?
As for my plans, I'll be celebrating singles awareness day: I do every year! I wear a cute outfit that makes me feel good about myself, treat myself to a good meal (pizza or something I enjoy), maybe buy myself something nice, and just relax. No, I don't need a specific day to do that either, but hey, I deserve to spoil myself a little, lol.
There ya go! You don't need a specific day to show the one you love that you love them! Surprisingly though... it's amazing how this day doesn't remind people that you don't need this day to show the one you love that you love them. So crazy!
