As someone who's been single for the past three years, I get that Valentine's Day can be a drag. Seeing all the obnoxiously cute couples celebrating a Hallmark holiday while you're hanging out at home alone, and not even your cat will show you love... Forget that! Because it doesn't have to be a drag! So just because someone may not be "treating" you doesn't mean you can't TREAT YO SELF this Valentine's Day & these are the ways to do it around Grand Rapids:

    Do Nothing!

    Sometimes doing nothing is the best way to TREAT YO SELF. Staying indoors and away from all the couples might be exactly what you need. Take a bath, read a book, bake, listen to music, lay on the couch, watch TV... there's so many ways you can do nothing.
