With all the hoopla of Valentine's Day coming up, people forget its sad and ugly other nicknames of #Single'sAwarenessDay. Like many other Hallmark Holidays, it comes and goes leaving some leaping with joy, and others down in the dumps. Just because you are single, does not mean you can't enjoy and feel the love. Gather up your single friends and hit the town. Here is a list of things to do if you are single this Valentine's Day in Orlando!
Have Your Chocolate And Eat It Too!
Everyone knows that Valentine's Day and chocolate are pretty much synonymous. Don't wait for someone to give you chocolates, make your own yummies at Farris And Foster's Chocolate Factory in Baldwin Park. You can indulge yourself and choose your fillings and fruits along with the sweet sweet chocolate of your desire. Feel free to keep your creations, or pay it forward and share them with another single soul in need. See the events listing on their website to find out dates and times when you can channel your inner chocolatier.
Take In Some History
Sunday Funday doesn't always have to involve vodka and bad decisions. Take a break from the monotony, relax, and take in some scenic views. The boat tour will take you along the famous historical properties in the Winter Park Chain of Lakes. Boat tours run on the hour daily Mon-Sun and take you through the winding hidden channels of Winter Park. Brings some sunglasses, snacks, and sit down and enjoy the ride! Prices vary by age range and tours must be booked at least 1 day in advance.
Find Your Valentine!
Tired of Swiping? Tantra Speed Date isn't your average dating event. Relationship skills games and speed date, you'll share a moment of fun, guided connection with up to 24 dates in a traditional Puja Circle. Exercises are playful, PG-rated (verbal dyads, dance, light partner yoga, improv), and infused with positive relating skills. You'll walk away not only with matches but with a refreshing perspective on what relationships can be.
Feel the Furbaby Love
Just because you don't have a person to love, does not mean you don't have unconditional love. Whether you have furbabies of your own, are looking to adopt, or just want to spread some lovins, make your way down to Lake Eola Park on February 9th for Paws In the Park. This community-wide fundraising event provides support for the more than 8,000 homeless pets who will be cared for at their two shelters this year. People from all over Central Florida join their furry friends for a walk around the park. To register, start a team or get more info, visit their website.
Girls Night Out
With all the pressure placed on us in our daily lives, sometimes it's good to just have a girl's night out. You can be naughty, or you can be nice. Bring out the sugar, I'll show you the spice! Gather up your girlfriends, get some singles, and take in a Magic Mike Style show at the Rock Hard Revue at Haven Orlando. Experience your own 50 Shades of Gray kind of night with these sexy men who never fail to put on an amazing show! (I know from experience). The vibe is so much fun that it really doesn't matter if you go alone in a group; you are sure to make new friends and leave very happy! The show runs Saturday nights at Haven Orlando. Call or go online to get ticket/party information.
Love Yo Self!
So if being around people just isn't your thing, we totally get it. Whether male or female, there's nothing like some good old pampering "me time" to make you feel alive again. Nothing screams "I LOVE ME!" more than glowing skin and relaxed composure. Pamper yourself at Orchid Spa And Wellness. A full-service spa in College Park, Orchid Spa and Wellness has something you definitely need in your life! Whether something simple like a manicure or aromatherapy massage, to a full facial, or laser hair removal. Sometimes you have to take a step back and love yourself, in order to spread love to others!
