You might not like Valentine’s Day and we don’t judge you. It isn’t mandatory to go with the flow, rather Valentine’s Day is way too overrated nowadays, I mean who is anyway prepared for an entire week of unsolicited expenditure and for this generation of youngsters, we hardly relate to ‘I want it, I got it’. So there’s no point in celebrating something you don’t believe in, or your monetary pressures do not let you believe in.
Now, the question is how would you ignore the crazy rush of Valentine’s Day posts and pictures all along your timeline? How would you unsee the lovebirds having the time of their lives? By following these anti-Valentine’s Day ideas, you can spend 14th of February without trying to think too much about your loveless existence:
Vacationing: Best Getaway Ever

There’s nothing more relaxing than to know that you have enough savings for a vacation this time of the year. A vacation would also be helpful in clearing away your thoughts and making you rejuvenated for the rest of the year. But more than anything, it would help you in gathering yourself and throwing the Valentine’s Day drama till next year! It gets all the more better, if you go on a solo trip!
Read Whatever You Get, But Avoid Newspapers
Reading is a great way to keep yourself occupied and entertained at the same time. Not just because it imparts knowledge, but mostly because it takes your mind off things you don’t wanna think about. It would be wise, however, to avoid reading the newspaper today, as it will be filled with ads about products and events related to Valentine’s day celebration, and obviously add to your disgust!
Home Is Where The Heart Is
Let’s face it, family comes first, and at times such as these, you would always enjoy family time. You could be an anti-Valentine’s Day person, but your family won’t even ask you why. And if you have Indian parents, I suppose they would throw a party in that honor. Do so, spend some quality time with your family, and just have a gala time without paying a heed to why the world is celebrating!
