The Ultimate Guide to Spending Valentine’s Day as a Single Guy

The Ultimate Guide to Spending Valentine's Day as a Single Guy — explore creative ways to Spending Valentine's Day as a Single Guy with Smoky Matchmaker.

Valentine’s Day is almost here, which means millions of guys of all ages get to frantically run around shops and figure out what to get for their girlfriends or wives. This is the day they have been training for since Christmas (hopefully), that was just a practice run. While these guys are dropping obscene amounts of money on gifts and flowers, and stressing over a romantic dinner reservation, you my dear singleton, get to lean back and relax. Now, just because you are single, does not mean you can’t have a great Valentine’s Day. In fact, as a dating coach, I believe that it is an excellent opportunity for single guys to celebrate self-love and indulge in activities that make them happy. Let’s explore unique ways for single guys to spend Valentine’s Day, emphasizing the importance of personal growth, enjoyment, and camaraderie.

1. Treat Yourself to a Spa Day:

Now, before you say it’s not your kind of thing, I want you to ask yourself how great it would be to get a foot massage right after a full deep tissue body massage. Start your day with a luxurious spa experience, focusing on relaxation and rejuvenation. Whether it’s a massage, facial, hot shave or sauna session, pampering yourself is a great way to show self-love.

2. Host a Singles-Only Party at Home:

Throw a singles-only party at home with great music, food, and company. Invite your single girl and guy friends. Pick up a few decorations, some fun table card games, maybe an oversized jenga and you are all set. Encourage mingling and create a festive atmosphere that makes Valentine’s Day all that much more fun.

3. Plan a Guys’ Night Out:

Don’t feel like doing all the work throwing a party? Gather your single friends for an epic night out on the town. Do a bit of a recon and find a local spot that has ladies’ night specials for that night. Dress up real sharp to look the part. Hit up a trendy bar, have a plan to meet new people. In case you were wondering, single women will also be out and about. Spending Valentine’s Day with friends can be an excellent way to celebrate the holiday.

4. Pursue a Passion Project:

Use Valentine’s Day to focus on personal growth by investing time in a passion project or hobby. Whether it’s learning a new instrument, starting a blog, or diving into fitness, channeling energy into what you love is empowering.

5. Early Spring Cleaning:

Take advantage of the day by decluttering and organizing your living space. A clean and organized environment can have a positive impact on your well-being. Cleaning out your space will give you a feeling of accomplishment as well.

6. Explore Outdoor Adventures:

Engage in outdoor activities that bring you joy, like hiking, biking, or a leisurely stroll in nature. Spending time outdoors can be refreshing and uplifting. Solo outdoor activities can be a lot of fun, or invite some of your single friends on a fun singles outdoor adventure.

7. Poker Night at Home with the Boys:

Host a poker night with your friends for a laid-back and entertaining Valentine’s Day. Single guys’ game night could be a lot of fun in an at-home poker night addition. This would be great for introverts who are not so keen on being out and about much, but would not want to miss out on Valentine’s Day celebrations.

8. Attend a Singles Event:

Explore local singles events happening around Valentine’s Day. Attend social gatherings, speed dating, or themed parties to meet new people and potentially find a romantic connection. Surely plenty of those around town.

9. Hit The Gym:

Hit the gym for a solid work out session. It has been long known that working out releases “happy hormones” promoting emotional and physical well-being. Maybe even sign up for a fun class or a session with a trainer. Reward yourself with a slice of chocolate cake, it’s good for you.

10. Netflix and Chill for One:

Grill yourself a nice chunk of meat, some side dishes and cozy up for a movie marathon at home. Unlike the coupled guys who are probably stuck watching some romance movie all night, you have the power to watch whatever you want. Enjoy an action movie, comedy, or classic romance, even those anime movies with subtitles.


Valentine’s Day as a single guy doesn’t have to be a day of feeling left out. Embrace the opportunity to prioritize self-love, personal growth, and enjoyable experiences. By treating yourself to a guys night out, pursuing a passion project, poker night, singles-only party, attending events, and early spring cleaning, or exploring outdoor adventures, you can turn Valentine’s Day into a celebration of your own happiness. Remember, being single on Valentine’s Day is a chance to celebrate the most important person in your life – you!
