With the rise of alternative celebrations like Galentine's and Palentine's Day, February 14th doesn't have to just be about romantic love! If you struggle with Valentine’s Day, the best approach may be to shape the day into something positive for you. Check out our top tips - based on suggestions from single individuals.

“I love Valentine's Day, and I've only ever spent two in a relationship. I use it as an excuse to celebrate the people I care about.

I don't think you should miss out on the fun just because you aren't dating!” – Anon
