While Valentine’s Day is touted as a day for couples, single people shouldn’t be left out! Take time on Valentine’s Day to treat yourself, because your relationship with you is most important. 

DO: Treat Your Self

DON’T: Just Show up to a Restaurant

Whether you’re going out with your significant other or a group of friends, you won’t get in anywhere without a reservation.  If you do show up to a restaurant on Valentine’s Day without a reservation, expect that you will probably eat subpar fast food down the street instead.  No easier way to kill the mood of a romantic night.
