I broke up with my abusive boyfriend last year on Valentine's day and been single since then. He was the worst and I went through hell and came back. So now Valentine's coming and I am as single as one can get, any ideas of how to have fun?

I have to give you a congrats for making the decision to leave someone who was abusive to you.
What I do has changed a little each year, depending on what day it falls on.
I've been single for a very long time. But I've gone out with other single friends, gone to movies, gone to restaurants, worked at night... I am assuming that since it falls on Tuesday, I will be in for most of the day except for work... so I may just try to relax.

Look at you, you're coming up on your liberation day!! That's awesome, good for you!
I think the day you got free of a toxic relationship is totally worth celebrating. Maybe have a girls night with other single friends, or if you want to do something by yourself, treat yourself to something pamper-y and self loving that you enjoy. Spa day? Pedicure? Double feature at the movies? I don't know you, so I don't know the kinds of things you like, but whatever "pamper yourself" and "celebrate" mean to you... do that!
Whatever you do, give yourself a big pat on the back for 1- knowing that you needed out of that relationship, and 2- getting out successfully. You did a great thing for yourself, and it shows a lot of character and strength. Be proud of that!1
