Valentine’s Day can be one of the hardest holidays as a single girl. If you are single, you know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s like another reminder that you’re aloneee! Okay, so not really alone, but without a boyfriend.
But like I’ve mentioned before, I want to thrive as a single girl. I don’t want to spend these years wasted longing for a boyfriend. Life doesn’t start when I get a boyfriend, life starts now.
So that includes enjoying every holiday, even Valentine’s day. And today I wanted to give you 5 ways that you can thrive during Valentine’s! Let’s get started!
How to Thrive During Valentines as a Single Girl
Let’s start with a fun one! Get a group of girls together and celebrate. It could be your friends, aunts and mom, or Bible study girls. Whoever you’d like! And it doesn’t even have to be on Valentine’s Day.
Y’all could go out to your favorite restaurant, or you could host a party at your house. Think food, games, or even a spa night!
I don’t know about you, but spending time with other girls really helps get my mind off of feeling left out during the holiday.
Guard Your Heart (Proverbs 4:23)
It can be so easy to feel sorry for yourself during Valentine’s Day and allow your thoughts to run rampant. You may start dreaming of what it would be like to spend a Valentine’s Day with your future boyfriend or husband, and that can lead to impurity.

Read the Bible as a Love Letter
This may be my favorite on the list! Did you know that the Bible is God’s love letter to you? I remember when somebody told me that for the first time. It totally made sense, but it changed my perspective on the Bible! Although the Bible definitely is full of history, that’s not all it is. It is the story of God going to great lengths to redeem you. He loved you so much that he sent His Son to die for you (John 3:16).
Name a better love letter.
You can’t think of one, can you? 😉
So I encourage you to spend time reading the Bible this Valentines (and all the time!). It truly can change your life.
If reading the Bible is daunting to you, I have a free resource that may help! It’s called 5 Ways to Dig Deeper into the Bible. Just click the image below to sign up for my newsletter to receive the free resource library password by email, and you’ll have access to it!
Serve Others by Babysitting
Like I mentioned in my post How to Thrive as a Single Girl During Christmas, serving others is an awesome way to keep the focus off of yourself. And what better way to serve during Valentines than babysitting?? Offer to babysit for those in your family, couples at your church, or even your parents. Trust me, it will be such a blessing to them and you.
Show others how much you love them
Valentines is all about love, right? So use this opportunity to show those in your life that you love them. You don’t have to show just your boyfriend love. Here are a few ideas!
- Make your parents breakfast or coffee.
- Make your siblings little valentines or cards telling them that you love them.
- Buy your friends a little gift. It doesn’t have to be expensive! Maybe some chocolate, face masks, or a Starbucks giftcard.
- Take your cousins or siblings on a little date to Chickfila or your favorite fast food restaurant!
Well there you have it! I hope that these tips help you to thrive as a single girl this Valentines!
