Things to do with your friends

Don’t have a significant other? Ask a friend to be your valentine!

It’s that time of year– Valentine’s Day or should I say Galentine’s Day? Whether you’re single or not, you can always spend this special day with your friends! Contrary to popular belief, this holiday is not exclusive to couples only. This is a holiday where you can express your affection with simple greetings and gifts to your friends as well. 

You can spend time with your friends just to show how much you love and appreciate them. Many of us females, often neglect each other whenever a guy comes into the picture. We often do not realize that our girlfriends are always there when things do not work out with love. Instead of thinking about how bad things have been in past relationships and how you feel lonely, make the most of this romantic holiday by spending Valentine’s Day with your friends!

For the men reading this, you are not alone either. You should celebrate this day as well, even if you are single. Whether you take your girl best friend out, or your squad, make the most out of your time because you get this day once a year! Go paint-balling, eat, or just talk and have fun. Top Golf and Main Event are also great places to hang out. 

So, here’s the thing, like any other special night, there are several things to do to celebrate Valentine’s Day to the fullest with your friends. You can make a dinner reservation, watch a movie, trade gifts, or just spend hours talking. Spending time with friends is one of the few pleasures we take for granted, so please enjoy these special moments with your friends and have a happy Valentine’s Day. Have a night out in Tampa and dress up, take pictures, and just enjoy time with each other. 

Disney Plus and Netflix offer a wide variety of movies and tv shows to watch with your besties. With the movie theaters back open, there are also many new movies to enjoy. This weekend, “Uncharted”, starring Tom Holland and Mark Whalberg as well as “Dog” starring Channing Tatum are both hitting the box office, which is the perfect time to grab your bestie and some popcorn and enjoy. 

Have a night out or enjoy a spa day in the comfort of your own home. Make some room on the couch and binge-watch your favorite Rom-Com movies for hours. You do not have to be in a relationship in order to celebrate this special day.
