If you haven’t been shot with Cupid’s arrow yet or your Valentine is yet to be found because he or she is still hiding under a rock, fear not.
You have a whole list of things to celebrate on Feb. 14, also known to many as Singles Awareness Day.
It’s great to be single on Valentine's Day because you don’t have to please anyone or care about anyone’s opinion of what you want to do. Go see that horrible or cheesy movie that you’d never go to on a date at Bethesda Row Cinema.
You can also really enjoy being with your friends. Get a group together and go to a fun concept restaurant in Bethesda, Chevy Chase or Washington, D.C. The Washingtonian Magazine has a great list of restaurants with open reservations, so grab your best friends and get your 5-star dining on.
Getting dressed up to go to a party is fun, but sometimes it’s even better when you can dress down for a party in your pajamas. Get takeout from your favorite restaurant, put on a mud mask, read magazines and watch your favorite movies.
Another reason to celebrate is that nobody yells at you about your credit card bill (except yourself). Go get a facial at Bethesda's Aveda Salon and a cute new outfit at one of the many boutiques lining Bethesda streets.
You also don’t have to decorate your home to fit anyone else’s taste. Go buy yourself a new item at any of the decorating stores on Bethesda Row, or in the Cabin John Shopping Center.
And the best thing of all—you don’t have to split a bottle of wine with anyone. Pick up a non-shareable bottle at Wine Harvest in Park Potomac.
