February, the month of love or the month that constantly reminds you that you’re not in love, you haven’t met Mr. Right, no one will be surprising you at work with a massive bouquet or bursting through the window with chocolates. But all is not lost, rather than writing off the celebration as a money making scam by the card industry, lets embrace St. Valentine’s Day and have a marvellous time, no boys allowed!

Treat yourself, you don’t need to wait on a fella for a gift. One of these stunning and ironically disheveled jumpers from Spotted On Celeb are practical and cuddle you all warm with a loving feeling.

Treat a friend, imagine your best single girlfriends face when she is surprised with a friendship bracelet or necklace, I’m lusting over everything from the Allumer range. And if they are good enough for Kate Moss…

Get out there and mingle. Grab your friends and go party! There are countless events going on over the Valentines weekend. Normal clubs and bars have a slightly sad and desperate feeling about them so try doing something different. How about a wild boat party or a themed singles night? There are lots of fun activities on web site Meetup to join for singles.

Sign up with a Matchmaker. Since Patti and the Millionaire Matchmaker sprang onto our screens, matchmakers have become the new personal trainers. If you’ve had enough of meeting weirdos on Tinder then you might find the personal touch the way forward. A good matchmaker will also offer solid dating advice and areas to improve to give the best chance of finding love, like Siobhan at www.catchmecupid.co.uk

Have a pamper evening. Treat yourself to some girlie pampering, with friends or alone. You only have yourself to please, so indulge with your favourite beauty products, a rom com, the most gooey desert, a little wine, sounds like an amazing date to me. But wait something’s missing….why not a little extra treat from Female run erotic store Sh! As well as offering a female friendly place to shop they run classes to put you at the top of your sexual game for when Mr. Right does come knocking. www.sh-womanstore.com
