How to Celebrate Valentine's Day (If You're Single) This Year

If you find yourself single this Valentine’s Day, there’s no need to worry - there’s plenty of alternative options to enjoy without the need for a significant other. While it may seem like the whole world is coupled off this time of year, that couldn’t be further from reality. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of tech-ensued V-Day activities for those finding themselves single this year - because single people deserve to have some fun, too.

If you’re unfamiliar with the popular Parks and Recreation reference, “Galentine’s Day” is essentially an unofficial holiday, a gathering that involve spending time with your gal pals (or platonic male friends, of course). If you find yourself single this Valentine’s Day, there’s no better way to feel the platonic love than by hosting a Galentine’s day get together.

And what better way to throw together a killer Galentine’s party than with smart devices? You’ll wow your friends with how tech-savvy you are, and make setup and decoration a cinch. You can also book a smart home setup appointment with Puls anytime to make things even easier!

Set the scene with some pink Philips Hue smart lights, play some tunes with your Google Home, and stream embarrassing videos of your exes (on your mounted TV, of course!) with your Chromecast. A Galentine’s shindig is the perfect way to show your friends know how much they mean to you - no relationship status required. 


Spend some time with your family

Valentine’s Day is all about love - and if you find yourself single this year, love isn’t necessarily a bad thing. There’s nothing quite like spending some time with those who love you most: your family. Chances are, they’d be thrilled to get some quality time with you this year, whether you’re single, taken or otherwise.

If you can’t physically spend time with your loved ones, why not spend some time virtually? With devices like the Amazon Echo Show and Google’s new Lenovo smart display, you’ll feel as loved as ever, even if you’re far apart. Not to mention, Puls can install smart home devices anytime you like, to make things seamless and simple throughout your house. 


Watch a horror movie

If you find yourself bitterly single this V-Day, that’s nothing a good slasher flick can’t fix! Seeing a violent or scary movie can help satisfy some of your pent-up frustration regarding your love life (or lack thereof). Furthermore, it’s a great way to bond with your mutually-bitter friends.

If you’re looking to curl up with something gory and horrifying on like Saw or The Shining, remember that movies always look better on a mounted flat screen TV. Get yours mounted in a cinch, without the headache, by letting Puls mount yours for you. Book a TV mounting appointment online and you’ll be set for an awesome night - full of binge watching your disappointing relationships away. 


Treat yourself

Paying homage to another wonderful Parks and Recreation catchphrase, now’s the perfect time to “treat yo self” to what you truly deserve. Who needs a romantic partner to get you gifts when you have your wonderful self? Branch out from the traditional flowers and chocolates - now’s a great opportunity spoil yourself by splurging on some modern, technological gifts.

Whether it’s a new phone case, the latest gadget, or even the much-needed treat of fixing your phone - why not treat yourself to something special? You absolutely deserve it.

Look to Puls to upgrade or fix your broken devices, without leaving the comfort of your couch. Once they’re fixed and as good as new, you’ll be perfectly equipped to get back out there and start dating again (or at least enjoying some dating apps) if you so choose.



Puls is there when you need it most
