In a world full of couples, you might just feel like you’re “the only one.” And it may not help that in Texas, there are “couple” things happening all around you. With Valentine’s Day creeping up, you might even feel like there’s a big ole magnifying glass over you, making sure everyone can see that you’re on your own. But never fear, Texas singles can survive and thrive even! There are dozens of apps and websites to help you pair up, but if your happiness doesn’t necessarily hinge on getting a guy/girl to do the Texas two-step with, here’s some advice on how to have some solo Texas fun on Valentine’s Day.

Learn to Dance

Taking a dance class by yourself isn’t all that bad! In Texas, it’s standard to maybe do some line dancing, take some salsa lessons, or simply pick up a lesson or two at a swing dance session. Going solo can’t hurt: you’ll meet new people, have some fun, and (bonus) get a great workout in the process!

Treat Yourself to a Spa Day or Massage

There are so many places to get a massage or spend a day at a spa in Texas. Self-care is nothing to sneer at, and you know darn well that if you were coupled up, you might actually expect something like this as a gift from your love, so why not simply treat yourself?

Have a Gourmet Meal

You may not necessarily want to spend the coin on a large, many-course meal that precludes you from doing anything but vegging later, but if your tastes lean this way, then why not? You can bring a book with you, or catch up on your e-reading, there’s no need to feel awkward as many people won’t care whether you’re there alone, and the benefit of enjoying a meal you might not otherwise have is even better. Pick a hot Texas restaurant you’ve been dying to try or even a quiet little café that suits your seclusion needs. Whatever the choice, eat, drink, and be single!
