Things To Do If You’re Single On Valentine’s Day

Being single on Valentine’s Day isn’t exactly ideal, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of it. State College has tons offer those lacking a significant other on the Hallmark holiday. Here are some things you can do as a singleton on V-Day to either enjoy yourself and embrace it, or smother the pain of loneliness.

Get Yourself Some Ice Cream. Lots.

Ice cream heals all wounds. Luckily, PSU is known for having some of the best around. Head over to the Berkey Creamery and eat away your feelings.

Head Out for a Night on the Town

Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year, which means the normal shenanigans of State College nightlife are sure to be in full swing. Hit up some of the bars, or find an apartment party for some single fun.

Get Some Work Done

Keep your mind off the hallmark holiday all together by distracting yourself with some schoolwork. How fun!

Ipad Notes

Listen to Some Sad Music

If self-pity is more your style, have a listen to our Depressing Playlist for Valentine’s Day Blues from last year. Also keep an eye out for our 2014 installment.


Make Your Own Valentine

The first step to finding love is loving yourself. SPA is hosting a Valentines making event on the first floor of the HUB Friday night. Make yourself something sweet. Odds are you’ll like it.


Have a Singles Bash

Hanging out with your favorite guys or gals always makes for a good time.  Invite over all of your single buddies and forget about your crippling loneliness for a few hours. Or at least wallow in misery together.

Go into a Sugar Induced Coma from Discounted Candy

Nobody to buy you any delicious treats? No problem! Stores everywhere will have insane markdowns on candy come Saturday.


Worst comes to worst, you can always just sit alone and read Onward State all night.
