When February 14 comes around the corner, the typical thing you hear and see is couples buying and giving things to their significant other. However, there are a lot of people who don’t have a significant other to give any goodies to, but is that what Valentine’s Day is really about? In reality, Valentine’s Day is an appreciation day to show your close friends, family and lover you care about them.

What is love? There is always many different responses to that question. There is always love going around and there is not a specific definition of the understanding of love but this date is the day to celebrate the feeling of love in general.

Palentine’s is when both genders get the chance to celebrate their love for their friends on February 13. This doesn’t necessarily mean you have to buy them a box of chocolates, roses, or a giant teddy bear. You can get together with your friends and do something fun to make them feel loved.

Make this year be the best Palentine’s by having a coffee date with your friends, or going for karaoke. If you want to avoid seeing couples on every corner you turn on Valentine’s Day, go to a bowling alley with your gals or pals, go to Home Depot and start a new DIY project, or go feed homeless people downtown – you’ll feel good about yourself and forget that you’re all alone.

Treat your friends this Valentine’s Day, spending time with them, or buy yourselves matching shirts and let them know you appreciate their friendship. Even the smallest gestures can be enough to bring a smile on their face and make them feel loved.
