Valentine’s Day is often referred to as “Singles’ Awareness Day” and this often seems appropriate for those who don’t have a significant other to spend the day with.

Don’t worry though because there are plenty of events going on around Valentine’s Day that will be perfect to enjoy solo or with other single friends.
