So, another Valentine’s Day spent alone. Pictures of couples fill your news feed all day with mushy, romantic posts as you sit alone on your couch eating ice cream pressing the “Yes I’m still watching” on Netflix.

But, so what? 

Yes, you may be spending your day alone while everyone else in a relationship is doing cute, romantic couple things and it may seem like you will never find love. But this is a great opportunity to not only focus on yourself but to celebrate the relationships you already have. Let me say it louder for the people in the back, you are not alone!

Celebrating your friendships with people who mean the most to you may just be one of the best ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day when you’ve got no bae. There are so many different things you can do to celebrate with your friends, from going out to staying in, the list is endless. Check out this article for some Galentine’s Day inspo from a fellow Her Campus writer!

Getting ready to go out with your friends and not have to worry about the pressures of it being the most ~romantic~ night is such a relief. You get to catch up with friends you maybe don’t have time to see during the week because of everyone’s busy schedules, and you have an excuse to dress up and treat yourself!

For all my single people out there, don’t have the Valentine’s Day blues this year – go out and celebrate Galentine’s, send your friends and family a Valentine, and, of course, treat yourself!
