It’s the day of love for the couples around you, but for you, it’s just another working day. The only difference is that you’re likely to see a lot of Valentine’s posts on social media. But, you don’t have a date for the evening. Single, mentally committed, in a complicated relationship, too lazy or busy to go out and meet someone… Who cares! The Bangali single knows how to be happy without a romantic partner. Here are some fun ideas for Bengali singles on Valentines Day.
Bengali Singles on Valentines Day: Best Plans for V-Day Evening
You have made it till the lunch break without any major breakdown. And now, just a few working hours are left. And, you’re probably sitting in the middle of a meeting or a lecture, wondering what you’ll do in the evening. Don’t worry, don’t sulk. Here are a few ideas that won’t require any planning!
1. Digital detox and rest
You might be tempted to stalk your crush or ex all evening, but we strongly discourage it. Just take a break from social media. It will prevent you from posting that your Ma-Baba are your Valentines. Use this time to sleep, like a true a Bangali. Gift yourself some time for lyadh on this evening.
4. Pamper yourself
Enjoy doing what you love. Listen to music, read a book you’ve been putting off for a while. Rejuvenate your mind. Buy yourself some chocolates, or jewellery, as you have been planning for a while now. Get a haircut-pedicure-manicure, as salons will be empty after their pre-Vday business.
2. Invite your single friends over
No, it’s not a desperate cry for help. It’s not an evening to make yourselves forget about “the vacuum”. It’s a way to share a laugh or two and remember that there’s no vacuum. Your BFF is probably planning to drink and drunk-text someone, anyway. So, just go out for phuchka instead.
3. Get some Biriyani home-delivered
Every festival deserves Biriyani, according to a Bangali. So, pick up your phone and order it in. Remember that the aim is to enjoy comfort food in the comfort of your home, and avoid the crowd and queues at restaurants. Plus, you will also get to enjoy discounts when you order through apps.
5. Binge-watch Bengali films and web-series
Get a Hoichoi subscription quickly, and start watching Bangla movies and latest shows there. The contents are original and varied, and the evening will fly as you enjoy the web-series and shows. From the lovey-dovey Paanch Phoron to the dramatic thrill of Hello, it has what you’re looking for.
Speaking as experts, we would like to suggest that you stay away from trying to drink your pain away because it’s still a weekday tomorrow. And don’t go shouting out aloud how much you DON’T care about Valentine’s Day. Just be happy for the happy couples, and enjoy being this phase in your life.
