You + your girls + a great deal = the best spa moment ever. Start stalking group deal sites like Living Social and Groupon and look out for a great spa deal in your area. (You could save almost 60 percent in some cases.) It’s the perfect excuse to get together and get away from all the lovey-dovey celebration.

Singles party on Valentine’s Day too. If you look closely at that bulletin board at your job, somewhere between all those advertisements for romantic dinners and shows, you’ll find a flyer for a singles-only event. Call up the girls and RSVP for a night of couple-free fun. Not seeing anything good near you? No worries. Throw your own last-minute singles’ bash. Added bonus: Surrounding yourself with single men is a surefire way to get a head start on next year’s V-day date.

Embrace your other love — fashion. In other words, shop ‘til you drop, together. The mall can be your safe haven, ladies. Sure, the restaurants and the movie theaters will be overrun with cute couples, but not your nearby mall. Will you guys are busy browsing racks and scanning price tags, you’ll be too busy to notice all that love in the air.

Sure you and the girls have hit the bar before, but when was the last time you were all lounging together in VIP? Head to the hottest spot in town Valentine’s Day night, and make sure your names are on the list. Get all dressed up, pop bottles, and party like rock stars. (But don’t forget the camera; it’s sure to be a night to remember!)
