10 Tips to enjoy Valentine’s Day when you’re 50+
1. Organize a party at your home:
So what you don’t have a partner. You can still enjoy Valentine’s Day with your friends. If you can celebrate Christmas or Thanksgiving Day with your friends, then why not VDay? Cook delicious meals, drink cocktails and share a hearty laughter with your friends.
2. Watch good movies:
Good movies and good food can inject happiness even to the dullest days. So, cook something elaborate for yourself. Cook a favorite dish for yourself. Once done, sit in front of your TV and watch recent blockbusters. Stay away from romantic movies.
3. Don’t drink too much:
Don’t feel depressed and drink too much. Remember, it’s better to be single than be in a wrong relationship. A bad partner would make your life hell. You’re better off alone. Just think you’re waiting for the right partner with whom you can share everything. The day he/she arrives, you’ll celebrate Valentine’s Day every day.
Dive into a long and deep sleep. Switch off your phone and television so that nobody disturbs you.
5. Walk on the beach:
Do you love walking on the beach? If so, then this is the right day to do it. Walk on the empty beach and take a bath in the sea. Carry a small picnic basket and have a yummy lunch.

Clean your house on the Valentine’s Day. Clean your garage. Throw away the storage boxes. Throw away all the unnecessary things.

Last but not the least
Stay away from Facebook please on February 14. It will remind you what you’re missing out in your life - a partner. Your newsfeed will be flooded with romantic posts. Your friends and relatives will share pictures of their sweethearts. This would generate an inferior complex which wouldn’t be good for you.
